You may be considering using an AGM battery for your wheelchair, but are unsure what the benefits of using an AGM battery are. In this blog post, we outline the top benefits of AGM batteries for wheelchair users.
What makes AGM batteries special?
AGM batteries are manufactured by hand to precise military specifications. They are ideal for wheelchair use because they are lighter than standard flooded lead-acid batteries. They also perform well in adverse conditions, such as low temperatures, making them suitable for outdoor use.
1. Recharge quickly
AGM batteries, due to their low internal resistance, can be re-charged rapidly, often 20% faster than standard conventional batteries. This ensures wheelchair users do not have to spend their time waiting around for their battery to re-charge or refuse plans because their wheelchair is charging. A quicker re-charge time can also help to lower your energy bills and improve your environmental impact.
AGM batteries are constructed by hand with high-quality aircraft class cell materials. This ensures each and every AGM battery is durable, long-lasting, and reliable. Long-lasting batteries are more cost-effective and environmentally friendly as they reduce the need to replace a battery frequently.
3. Low maintenance
If charged and stored correctly, AGM batteries require no maintenance. This makes them the most cost-effective battery option, as although standard batteries may be cheaper, they are not as high-quality, long-lasting or low maintenance, making AGM the superior battery option by far.
Which AGM battery is right for my wheelchair?
The correct AGM battery for your wheelchair will depend on your charging equipment, weight restrictions, power requirements and budget. There are many online tools and calculators to help you find the correct battery for your needs.
