Most fully-charged power wheelchair batteries should last around 8 hours and go up to 10 miles. Some models can reach close to 20 miles in a single charge. The distance your chair can travel will shorten when your wheelchair battery gets older. You can expect your batteries to last one to two years with regular use. The following factors can cause your electric wheelchair batteries to wear out sooner:
- Activity level: How much you do in one day, as well as the terrain you traverse (hills or rocky surfaces), will influence battery lifespan.
- Weight: Your weight affects battery life. More weight requires extra power to move the chair. Avoid frequently carrying heavy objects.
- Improper charging: Draining your battery to zero, or charging it when theres still a decent charge left (50% or more) will shorten lifespan.
- Leaving it connected: Not disconnecting battery terminals when the wheelchair is idle for long periods will drain and damage the battery.
