Batteries during storage
« on: 21 January, 2019, 08:55:37 PM »
Anyone any ideas or experience of keeping batteries good while scooter isn’t been used? I.e I’ve just bought scooter and am going to reuse the batteries in my build but scooter is going to sit for many months while I am at work. Should I buy a little battery monitor/conditioner or a trickle charger? Solar powered trickle charger like I’ve seen used for cars that are left standing? Can I just leave it on the charger and I can use a controllable plug socket so it charges once a week for a few hours or so?

Any advice greatly appreciated.

Thanks

No need just leave them not plugged in like they would have been at the shop.

One word of warning if you take the batteries out don't leave them on a concrete floor. For some reason this ruins them. They just don't like sitting on concrete.
