Normal acid based batteries suffer from sulphation when left discharged which drastically reduces the life of the battery. This doesn't happen with gel batteries. Gel batteries also perform better in colder weather conditions and are more resilient to deep discharges. Gel batteries can achieve a cycle life of over 600 cycles compared to 200-300 cycles on a normal acid battery.
Please note that all scooters operate a 24v circuit and hence require 2 batteries. We are able to offer VAT free pricing on batteries and chargers where these items are fitted by our engineers to a qualifying product (eg scooter). For information and pricing for fitting please call 01444 253300.
