Jazzy Power Chairs, like any other powered equipment, need to be recharged from time to time. Please don’t be alarmed! In just five simple steps, you’ll be able to recharge your beloved power chair.
What is a Power Wheelchair?
When it comes to getting around, a power wheelchair comes in handy. A person with a medical condition that makes it difficult for them to walk is most likely to utilize this device. Because they are unable to utilize a manual wheelchair or an electric scooter, many use power wheelchairs.
A base with four or more wheels is required for every electric wheelchair. There are usually two main drive wheels and two or four smaller wheels called casters on a motorized wheelchair for extra stability, which is common. Front, center, or rear drive wheels can be installed on a motorized wheelchair base. If you’re looking for a vehicle that can be driven on one or both of its wheels, the Jazzy Air 2 is the best option. It is possible to move a motorized wheelchair forward, backward, left, and right by using a joystick.
It is possible to use electric wheelchairs outside, however power wheelchairs are better for inside use. The Jazzy® Select, a compact and maneuverable motorized wheelchair, is ideal for usage at home and has a smaller turning radius. Several electric wheelchairs may easily fit through the hallways and door frames of a typical home.
A power wheelchair can be outfitted with a wide range of additional features. Pride’s Jazzy wheelchair accessories include an arm mount saddlebag that can be attached to a motorized wheelchair’s armrest for handy storage. Accessories that can be added to the car include a cup holder and an XLR USB charger for charging smart devices while on the road. Even if you don’t use any extras, you may still make your electric wheelchair stand out.

5 Benefits of an Electric Wheelchair
1. SUITABLE FOR ALL
Mobilitypluswheelchairs.co.uk has a wide selection of electric wheelchairs to accommodate people of all sizes.
With a joystick for easy movement control, our power chairs are suitable for any level of impairment. Adjustable height, tilt, recline, and leg space are all common features.
An electric wheelchair allows those who lack the upper-body power to drive a manual wheelchair to go farther and faster.
2. MAKE MORE PLACES ACCESSIBLE
In addition to being able to be utilized both indoors and outdoors, electric wheelchairs provide all-day support for those who require it.
Because of their narrow turning radius, powered chairs are great for navigating confined locations.
Additionally, manual chairs allow for greater mobility than ever before. Tough terrain, which may dissuade people from following a given route, is also easier to access.
A 16-inch rear-wheel drive system on our electric wheelchairs provides a smooth ride up and down hills and ramps.
3. EFFORTLESS TRANSPORT
Because electric wheelchairs tend to be smaller and lighter than traditional manual wheelchairs, they are simple to transport. We offer electric wheelchairs that can be folded up and transported in a small space.
It’s easy to move our MobilityPlus+ electric chair in any vehicle. In contrast to lithium batteries, these wheelchairs are equipped with a lead-acid battery, which makes them safe and legal to bring on an aircraft.
4. A SAFE OPTION
An electric wheelchair’s lower center of gravity makes it less prone to tipping over than a manual chair. Because of the ease with which one can stop and move when traversing uneven terrain, the risk of rolling is significantly reduced.
A one-year warranty is included in the purchase price of any of our powered wheelchairs.
5. INCREASES CONFIDENCE
The wheelchairs we sell have basic joystick controls, so they’re not difficult to operate.
It takes only a light touch to operate our powerchairs, and they can be readily adjusted to ensure that the user is comfortable for as long as they are in the chair.
Our MobilityPlus+ electric chair can go up to 15 miles on a fully charged battery at a maximum speed of 4mph, so you’ll never be stranded when out and about.
Charging Your Jazzy Power Chair
Using a converter to plug in your charger is the first thing you should avoid doing. Directly plugging it into a suitably rated outlet is the best option. Surely you don’t want to ruin your charger or converter.
Allow me to walk you through how to charge your device now.
The first step is to park your electric wheelchair near a power outlet.
As a second step, you should be sure to off any controller power and engage the freewheel levers. (You can use this as a reference for identifying individual components.)
Plug the off-board charger into the off-board charger/programming socket.
Plug the off-board charger into an electrical outlet as the final step. If the LED light on the charger indicates that power is being supplied, then the charger is operational. In addition, it lets you know when charging is underway and when it has finished.
Unplug the off-board charger when the LED light indicates that your device is fully charged. It’s important to remember to unplug it from the controller after you’ve finished connecting it in.
Please contact the authorized service center if your device is still not fully charged after 24 hours of charging. Your Jazzy Power Chair should be completely charged and ready to use if you were successful in the previous steps.
Breaking-in new batteries
Breaking in a fresh set of batteries for your Jazzy Power Chair is critical for best performance. You paid for it, so make the most of it.
Step 1: Fully charge your new battery before first usage to bring it up to 90% of its performance level.
After recharging, take your power chair for a spin around your yard or around your home. To get used to the controls and to break in the batteries, begin by driving a short distance at a modest pace.
The third and last step is to recharge it for at least 8 to 14 hours and begin using it again. This time, the new battery will be able to perform at least 90 percent of the way it should.
In order for your new battery to fully charge, you’ll need to charge it for at least four to five times.
How long and how often must you charge it?
Your power chair’s battery life will be shortened if you don’t charge it correctly and on a regular basis. If you plan to use it every day, make sure you charge it for 8 to 14 hours each night.
However, if you don’t use it very often, charging it once a week or less for at least 24 hours is the best way to keep it maintained. Your power chair battery will be taken care of this way, which is precisely what you should be doing!
Batteries can be irreversibly harmed if they are often and deeply discharged, or if they are stored with only a partial charge. To put it simply, it could result in a power chair with a short battery life and an unstable motor.
That’s why it’s so important to keep your batteries charged whenever possible. Jazzy Power Chair will be saved thanks to this product.
How to store a power chair and its batteries
Battery harnesses should be detached in addition to having the batteries completely charged. To keep your power chair and battery safe, keep them in a warm and dry location. Avoid exposing it to temperatures that are too high or too low.
Don’t charge a frozen battery when you’re ready to use your power chair again! Before recharging, a frozen battery must be warmed up for many days.
In order to improve the quality of life, power chairs are state-of-the-art. It is not only a physical aid, but also a chance for a person to move on in their life.
