All Battery Information

As the batteries become fully charged and are no longer able to accept any further electrical energy. Consequently, the battery voltage will rise. Of course, when the voltage reaches the regulation level (varies with battery type see below) So, starts to dump power the controller’s lights are a solid red. Naturally,this energy is dissipated as heat into the surrounding environment. Significantly,more or less power is diverted to the dump load. According to how much is being supplied to the battery from the turbine.

Leisure Batteries Storage time again as Winter approaches?

Leisure Batteries Storage

It is storing your Leisure Batteries Storage time

Leisure Batteries Storage

The extremely mild weather here in the UK. Has brought out all the spring flowers,(earlier than normal). It is also bringing out the caravan and motorhome users, into thinking about their first 2014 trips out. Hence, judging by the amount of leisure batteries that we are selling at the moment.

Normally we see a surge of sales and inquiries just a few weeks before Easter. But this year the sales are coming early. One of the most popular batteries that we sell. Thus,to the caravan and campervan (RV) fraternity is the XV31 110 amp leisure battery . This battery is made by a battery manufacturer in South Korea. This also covers smaller battery sizes, including XV 23, XV 24, and XV 27 and, of course, the XV31. This battery along with the LV26, and along with the smaller LV 22 are made by Johnson Controls . Of course one of the World’s leading battery developer and battery manufacturer.

This year is a particularly good time to buy this Leisure Batteries product. Because due to the mild winter.Subsequently, the sales of car batteries have dropped off. Meaning the leading battery companies are well down on sales of car batteries.So,are looking forward to the next battery season. Which includes the sale of leisure batteries, motorcycle batteries, mobility scooter batteries, golf cart batteries. Including, other seasonal things such as lawn mower batteries. Of course, the guys who are lucky enough to own a classic car. Classic car batteries are huge sellers.

Leisure Batteries Storage

What normally happens is that the owners of these types of battery-driven machines equipment will get them out as soon as the weather improves and start getting warmer, which is normally around April time here in the UK. But this year we are about three weeks to a month in front, due to the mild weather. In fact, I have recently seen a butterfly and many bees flying about and also the grass on my lawn needs cutting for the first time after the winter.

People all over will be getting out their golf and gardening equipment only to find that their battery is flat and will not work. Most of the time the battery will recover when it is charged, but people are reluctant to charge their battery throughout the winter months. Up to recent times, the battery chargers were of the old fashioned types that you put onto your battery

and then took off when the battery was fully charged but these days you can buy what they call “intelligent battery chargers”. These chargers are made by well-known companies such as Ring Electrical and “Numax”, and are well worth the investment. What you have to do is find out the correct amps that you require for your size of the battery, remove the Leisure Batteries from the caravan or lawn mower, whatever it is on, give the Leisure Batteries a clean and if it is not a sealed battery, check the levels.

You can then connect the leisure battery to the smart charger

, (preferably in a frost free place) and leave it to charge all the winter long. The charger will then keep your leisure battery charge topped up to the correct levels and automatically switch on and off when charging is required. This way you will end up with a nice clean fully charged the battery when the time comes to use it.

Eric Roberts‘s insight:

Another New Type of  Battery for solar energy  Hits the Road

Mount Pleasant in Pennsylvania will be the site for the production of yet another new type of battery. The company will be known as Aquion Energy and will start producing a new type of battery. Consequently, that was invented by professor J Whitacre. So, from the material science department of the Carnegie Mellon University.

These new type of battery is expected to cost about the same to produce as lead-acid ones. Naturally, that are in common use today for a multitude of applications. But are expected to last twice as long. They  will be primarily used for the storage of the suns power generated . Significantly, from Solar Panels for Electricity and  Turbines. Offering a storage facility for homes in rural and isolated areas. Knowingly, that use the off grid powered by the sun. So, which  supplies and require storage for night use and bad weather when the sun is not available. At the moment these people use different types of lead-acid ones and fossil fueled engines powered by diesel as standby supplies when the sun does not shine for whatever reasons.

For the reasons that I have explained this new type of battery

So, is expected to be used in countries that do not have an electric grid, but are expected to get electricity in the near future and because this new type of battery will be available for storage, then these countries will save a huge amount of money by running diesel generators when the sun does not shine and at night. I am sure that Africa will be one of the first places to benefit from such inventions.

The new company have also used ingenious ways of saving money during the manufacturing process of the new batteries, using machines that were originally used for making aspirin pills to make the thin plates used to make the positive and negative electrode materials. They also use parts from a sweet wrapping machine to pack the electrodes together to collect current.

The company expects to start full scale production in early 2014 and hopes to make enough batteries to supply 150 solar powered villages.

Trojan Motorhome Batteries-Upgrading Your Motorhome-RV-caravan Batteries to perhaps the best Trojan

Trojan Motorhome Batteries

Get the most out of camping unplugged by upgrading your Motorhome Batteries 12-volt battery to two 6-volt Trojan Motorhome Batteries. A TrailerLife TV original video. For more…

 

eric Roberts’ insight:

Trojan Motorhome Batteries- 6 volt Motorhome Batteries conversion

This is a great video. So, about converting you 12-volt single battery to two Trojan 6 volt batteries. Of course, that are wired in series. Producing a 12 Volt Motorhome Batteries system. As a result, but with greatly increased amps. In fact, as the video says a regular Leisure Batteries are usually from 85 Ah to the most popular one which is the 110 amp leisure battery. But by joining the two 6 volt batteries inMotorhome Batteries,trojan

series the output will be a massive 240 amps.

This battery layout is an ideal situation. Enabling the owner of the Motorhome Batteries to use whatever electrical items that he chooses. Believe me, this system will be really on top of the job. So, with a massive 240 amp storage capacity. The Trojan AGM batteries are one of the best Motorhome Batteries in the World and you would expect this system to last at least 5 or 6 years. I say this because although the initial layout would cost you more, then you would be making savings over the long run.

This system would be great for the people who go out in the wilderness or are traveling long distances, say across Europe or perhaps further, people in America will be able to stay in their own country to travel to a wilderness, but wherever you travel you can use all the electricity that you require before the batteries will need recharging. Trojan has a reputation second to none and it gave me a real thrill and great pleasure when I first became the Motorhome Batteries dealer for the Yorkshire area here in the UK.

Trojan Motorhome Batteries

Trojan batteries make batteries to fit hundreds of applications, including boats, both large and small, emergency traffic light signals, platform lifts, known in the UK as “cherry Pickers”, golf carts and golf buggies, floor cleaning machines so that they can clean large areas without having to plug into an electric point and more recently they produce batteries to store renewable energy from the Sun via solar panels and wind turbines.

Trojan Motorhome Batteries

Large C class motorhomes use many electrical appliances, requiring a larger battery Amperage.

Here’s hoping that whatever battery you fit your Motorhome Batteries or caravan gives you great service on your travels in the new year holiday season(especially if you bought your battery from me?).

Mobility Scooter Battery-Driving about on your Mobility Scooter can be Dangerous? General Safety Advice.

Mobility Scooter Battery

Mobility Scooter Battery- and- General Safety Advice.

We have all seen the massive increase in mobility scooter ownership. Say over the past ten years or so. It is now a massive market place for the companies that sell the scooters. Including, the Mobility Scooter Batterycompanies who sell spare parts. Including consumables such as scooter batteries and scooter tyres.

In the past few years however safety organisations have become increasingly alarmed about the increase in accidents and general safety and looking after their scooters and equipment. Many minor accidents are reported and many are not reported, so that many accidents do not get into the statistics, probably only the serious ones are reported and are found out about.

One accident in particular comes to mind, that is the story about the lady and her mobility scooter that fell off the platform at Barnsley railway station, onto the track in front of an oncoming train. The lady came from nearby Monk Bretton and had to be airlifted by the air ambulance to hospital. This is one of the many accidents that are reported but many are not.

The most common incidents occur in shopping centres when shoppers are run over by these scooters. Because they are operated by mobility scooter AGM batteries, they are almost silent and some people cannot hear them coming from behind, some shoppers just walk out from a store, straight into the path of an oncoming scooter causing an accident.

Mobility Scooter Battery

Other probably more dangerous accidents occur on the roads. Where my garage is situated in Halifax. We are located on a fairly steep hill. On most days you will see elderly or disabled people on their scooters. Driving down the hill as fast as they can go. Also, we are situated on a set of traffic lights. Subsequently,the scooter users hardly ever stop at the red light. Either when they are on the road or on the pavement. How there has not been a bad accident I will never know?

Here in the UK we are starting to realize that  Mobility Scooter drivers should be made aware of the danger’s. So, and be more aware of the problems that they could face. Thus, when they are on a trip out. Especially now that spring is around the corner and the scooter owners will have a better chance of getting out and about.

As a side note scooter owners should check their AGM Batteries . Hence,mobility scooter, batteryfor charge and the general condition. Before they venture out. If you are not sure about the condition of their 12 Volt Battery . Consequently, they are better replaced. So that you can carry out the journey without running out of power. So,struggling to get home. It is well worth investing in new mobility scooter batteries every two years.

Mobility scooter battery and tyre advise

Tyresafe.org are launching a wealth of free advice to increase the safety of scooter riders when they are out on the road. The campaign will be known as the “PACT” and I believe that a mobility scooter driver awareness course was also started off in Norfolk. More reading… http://www.norfolkpact.co.uk/safe-scoot/

Although these scooters are easy to drive, the problem arises because of the lack of knowledge that the scooter drivers have when driving on the roads. In fact many of these drivers have never driven a car before and know nothing about road safety or the Highway Code.

Tyresafe have moved into give the scooter driver’s advice on their tyres. They have started off by recommending that their tyres should be checked at least three times a week. The scooters handbook will give the correct pressure. Just like car tyres it is very important to put the correct pressures into the tyres, if the pressures are too low then the scooter will be unstable and would swerve and also wear out the tyres tread and as a I have seen first-hand, the tyres will blowout, causing the scooter to become stranded with a flat and damaged tyre, so it is most important to check your tyre pressures and if you are disabled ask an able bodied person to help you, you can also drive or take your scooter to your local tyre centre who would only be too pleased to check your tyres for FREE.

Mobility Scooter Battery

Finally, to ensure proper grip, especially in wet conditions, riders should check that their tyres have sufficient tread depth. Scooters with less than 50cc need to have all of the grooves of the original tread pattern visible whereas those over 50cc must have at least 1mm of tread depth across the central three quarters of the tyre with visible tread on the remaining mobility scooter, batteryquarter…

http://tyresafe.org/media-centre/latest-news/572-new-safety-advice-launched-for-scooter-riders#sthash.5yx2Rzl6.dpuf

In my opinion courses for mobility scooter drivers will become more available across the UK. If you see of one then you would be advised to join the course to make our roads and pathways a safer place for all road users and pedestrians.

Trojan Batteries Yorkshire-One of the Worlds finest AGM Batteries for Solar battery Storage and Golf Buggys

Trojan Batteries Yorkshire

Trojan Batteries Yorkshire

That is a very good question, why Trojan batteries?

 

Well until a couple of years ago I knew nothing about Trojan batteries . Of course, other than they were made in the USA. Having a reputation for their good quality. So, we became a Trojan batteries dealer for the Yorkshire region in 2012. As I have said, I must admit I knew nothing about the product. Hence, the first thing I did was to look up their history. Soon discovering that they started out in 1925, (twenty three years before I was born).

The company was started out by a Mr George Godber. Consequently, an ex world war one navy veteran serving on a submarine. Soon, he formed a partnership with his brother-in-law, a Mr Carl Speer.

Car batteries were Trojan batteries first product.

Their business adventure started off in Los Angele’s. The pair kicked off by making car batteries. After a while they developed and started to make the larger batteries. So, that were suitable for the trucks of that time.

Their main desire though was to produce deep cycle batteries. So, they were more specialised and a good product for the future. The two original partners were later joined in their business by Ray and Dick Godber. Subsequently, a second generation that were to help develop their desire for the deep cycle battery.

In the period of the early 1950s. A company by the name of the Autoette made a small one cylinder petrol driven cart. Capable of doing in the region of 10 mph,(they are now used extensively in a town called Avalon. Where normal cars are banned and there is a speed limit of 20 mph).

The first deep cycle battery was produced in conjunction with Autoette. Producing a battery driven golf cart for a golfer with mobility problems. Thus helping him to get round a golf course. This lead to the revolution of the golf cart. Driven by an electric motor and powered by the now familiar maroon coloured Trojan batteries. 

trojan batteries

The famous maroon colored Trojan batteries

Trojan Batteries Yorkshire

This was the beginning of the deep cycle battery. So, the company went from strength to strength. Designing and making batteries for many other applications. The 1980s saw the company expand into a new location and battery building factory. Just on the outskirts of Georgia Atlanta. In 1992 they added a master stroke by building a new technology centre.  Hence, to enhance the future development of the Trojan battery products. Helping to develop batteries for floor machine, marine applications. Including construction and various industrial applications.

Since then new generations of the family have dedicated their work into making Trojan batteries into the top brands for such things as Leisure and Golf and Utility Vehicles, Floor Machines, Aerial Work Platforms, Commercial trucks, Marine vessels, Recreational Vehicles, Medical Mobility, Neighborhood Electric Vehicles and their latest venture into Renewable Energy systems, due to the high demand for renewable energy storage from solar panels to wind turbines.

Trojan have been responsible for many new battery innovations

In the following years Trojan batteries have been responsible for many new battery initiatives and subsequently won many awards from industry for their achievements. Although Trojan batteries still develop and manufacture their battery and associated products in the USA they now have international offices located in Europe, UAE and Asia.

Trojan batteries are also proud member of the Battery Council International (BCI), the Advanced Lead Acid Battery Consortium and a technical research partner with the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences. Trojan applies rigorous industry battery testing procedures that adhere to BCI and International Electro-technical Commission (IEC) test standards. There is no doubting the stature and the endeavour that this company have and I am proud to be a minute part of such a great companies marketing set-up here in the UK, through our website www.batteriesontheweb.co.uk

Buying Your First Car? Here Are Some Tips

Yorkshire Car drivers-BEWARE of the M62 Speed Camera Gantries

Yorkshire Car drivers BEWARE of M1 and M62 Speed Cameras

So, I am a resident of Kirklees and have been a user of the M62 motorway ever since it was built. In my opinion it has been a great asset to the people of West Yorkshire and Lancashire. In fact I do not know what we would have done. Including, how the roads would have coped without this motorway.

Yorkshire Car drivers

Yorkshire Car drivers be aware Part of the M62 traffic management system in West Yorkshire

The big problem with the motorway, as we all know is the stretches between junction 25 (Brighouse turn off) and junction 27 (Gildersome turn off). Over the years this stretch has many accidents and hold ups, making it one of the major black spots on the UK motorways. It came as great relief to the Yorkshire Car drivers, “including myself”, when it was announced that this section of the M62 was to be upgraded and turned into a controlled system, similar to the one in Birmingham on the M 42 and part of the M 1 Motorway south of Sheffield.

50 MPH Road works

The work began about three years ago and we were all subjected to a 50 mph speed limit and many delays due to accidents and vehicles breaking down. Eventually the work progressed and we started to see the rise of the gantries covered in Motorway Traffic Cameras over the road, which would be used to control the traffic in the various lanes. I could not wait and gradually the work was competed and the speed signs directing us to what speed we should be doing.

 

In my opinion I think the new system is really good and it is nice to see some development on the road system for the Yorkshire Car drivers in the North where I think that in the past we have been heavily neglected by various Governments in all fields of investment. As I drive all around the country I cannot believe the investment that has been poured into the South and places like Wales and Scotland, I truly think that we have been starved of money here in West Yorkshire at the hands of politicians to please other regions of the country.

However we must not complain the car driving population of Yorkshire have now got a new controlled section of the great M62, knowing that we will see less holdups and witness less delays.

Keep your car speed bellow 70 mph?

There is however one thing that we should all watch out for, “DON’T TAKE YOUR CAR ABOVE THE 70 MPH LIMIT”. It is now known that when the gantry lights are off that the speed cameras are still working and have been “flashing” drivers who have been exceeding the speed limit. I am an older driver and rarely take my car over the limit, but there are thousands of Yorkshire Car drivers who think that the limit is now 80 mph. So when you are driving your car on this section of the M62 beware, the speed cameras are there to get you.

Speed Camera gantry signs now in operation ?

As an update I have observed that the gantries are regularly switched onto the white cross over each lane. Signifying the no speed limit signs . The information box on top says “Speed Camera”. In my opinion this is a good developments ! Because I presume that this is a clear signal and any driver exceeding 70 MPH will be flashed and prosecuted. Other gantries will not be be switched on as “Speed Cameras” . So giving a definitive line not to cross ?

According to the Huddersfield Examiner “West Yorkshire Police refused to comment further but the Highways Agency has now confirmed the new £150 m overhead gantry system between Huddersfield and Leeds CAN catch speeding Yorkshire Car drivers, even when it is not being used to slow the traffic”…More Reading…http://www.examiner.co.uk/news/west-yorkshire-news/highways-chiefs-reveal-m62-cameras-6152759

Varta Motorcycle Batteries-“Powersport” and “Funstart” Motorcycle batteries are some of the Best.

Of course Varta Motorcycle Batteries  are made by the excellent Johnson Controls

Varta Motorcycle Batteries

 

Unfortunately, (now sold out to another company) the largest battery company in the World. We all know what can happen if a motor cyclist loses control of his bike. Naturally, it can be serious. Factually, most bikes are fitted with normal free flow lead acid batteries. Which as we know can spill out the acid when the battery is tipped over.

Car companies such as Mazda have been fitting AGM types into their cars for a while now, especially ones that fit inside the car and under the seat. This is of course for safety purposes, so in the case of an accident the battery will not spill out the battery acid, which could make the accident even worse if the acid leaks onto the driver who may be trapped inside the cab.

Varta Motorcycle Batteries have brought out the “power-sports” range of AGM’s , which are also suitable for other powersport vehicles, such as “jet-skis” or motorcycle scrambling and other racing bikes. These provide maximum starting power and longer charge and discharge times. These  are also totally sealed and if an unfortunate event should occur, then there would be no battery acid spillage as the battery is filled with absorbed glass matting and not free flow acid. Below is a list of other benefits from fitting an AGM battery to your motorcycle.

Varta Motorcycle Batteries Battery Terminal Construction

Robust fitment to reduce corrosion and prevent acid leakage, ensuring your battery lasts longer.

Cell Connectors

The connectors join the individual battery cells together, via the plate block, creating a shorter energy path and increasing starting power.

Extra-Strong Casing and Cover Material

Special oil-resistant plastic moulded to remain stable in extreme temperatures.

Specialized Grid Design

Created for optimum conductivity; and high resistance to vibration ; essential when you’re riding off-road.

Varta Motorcycle Batteries “Funstart Batteries”

This is another development from Varta Car Batteries Online and enables a normal lead acid motorcycle battery to be turned into a GEL battery. I have added a video from Varta, that explains how to use this excellent battery product, these batteries are known as “Funstart”. We also supply Varta Motorcycle Batteries

Eric Roberts

Of course we here at Batteriesontheweb try our best to buy the correct motor cycle battery product. As a result we can off one of our best products. The Varta battery brand. Two types are offered. The Varta AGM battery comes totally sealed. Naturally, this battery comes with a one year warranty. Consequently, we also offer a Gel premium quality battery In limited sizes only. All our batteries are sent with a next working day delivery. So, to most UK postcodes. These batteries are not cheap motor bike batteries. So are Varta quality for the first time starting of your motor cycle.

Thomas Edison-An Early nickel-iron Battery was invented by no other than Thomas Edison

Early nickel-iron Batteries from Thomas Edison

Surprisingly, it was only recently when I was doing an article about something else. So that I came across an interesting fact. About the American inventor, no other than Thomas Edison. So, why I should  I have been surprised I did not know ! Because he invented some mind bending things . Of course, that we still use today. Thomas Edison Invention Light Bulb and the communications breakthrough of the first ever phonograph (a type of early record player).batteries,thomas edison

Thomas Edison was working on improvements to another invention. His  telegraph transmitter and he noticed that the tape of the telegraph machine. Could give him human type voices when he ran it at a fast speed.

This set his highly intelligent mind at play which resulted in the genius trying a stylus onto a tin foil cylinder and it played back the tune “Mary had a little lamb”. This discovery was to end up as the first machine to record sound and play it back, in other  words the World’s first type of record player, Batteries UK (although he used cylinders not discs). This made him famous all over the World and the devise was known as the “Phonograph”.

New battery invention !

The part of Thomas Edison Timeline . Of course,that interests me . So is the new type of storage battery that he invented. His invention could have been started off when he noticed that it was a struggle to start the engines in the cars of that period only using a cranking handle. I can remember when I was an apprentice mechanic in the late sixties; when a 12 Volt Battery went flat for some reason we had to use a cranking handle to try start the engine and it was very hard indeed.

More reading…http://inventors.about.com/cs/inventorsalphabet/a/electric_2.htm 

New life for the nickel-iron batteries ;from Stanford University.

Thomas Edison came up with a new type of battery known as the nickel-iron battery and car ownership was open to everyone who could afford a car and not just the strong people who could crank an engine to start by using only muscle power. To bring you to my main point the old Edison invention may now be brought up to date by staff at Stanford University.

The nickel-iron batteries that are used today will be used mainly for storing the Suns energy from the use of wind turbines and solar panels. These modern type batteries have a much greater charging speed, but the scientists and students still, need to work on improvements to time that the batteries can actually store the electricity that is produced. In fact the batteries can be fully charged up in only a couple of minutes and it only takes ½ a minute to discharge its load.

There is still a great deal of work to be done. But this updated type of battery will be expected to be competition. Especially, to the Lithium-Ion batteries presently used on electric car production. The new version of the nickel-iron batteries. Could even be used to accelerate the charge rate to the lithium-ion battery. So, giving it a power boost to generate faster acceleration and regenerative braking.

The World of Solar Power Systems and Solar Storage Batteries. So, has now become a crazy mixed up mix of different peoples. Setting up different ways of storing their renewable energy. There are also many Universities all over the Planet looking for different types of batteries to use for storing the suns energy or the energy created by wind turbines.

Indeed it was only a few days ago that I wrote an article about Stamford University in the USA developing the nickel-iron Solar Storage Batteries, first invented by Thomas Edison and these batteries have been ear marked for the use of Solar Storage Batteries from the sun to store the large amounts of electricity that sun produces.

Many countries in the world do not have access to a grid electric supply. This sort of thing is taken for granted in the western world. But for many

countries, such as parts of Africa. So, an electric supply is just a dream. In these days of the rapid growth in solar energy production,. Hence, the dream is starting to become a reality. It is difficult to believe that over 1.6 billion people do not have any mains electric power supply.

With the solar power revolution. It means that for the first time people will have the doors opened for better lighting. Including, better communications that will lead them to better education. Educated people can become nurses and business men. This will also mean that the people will have better school facilities. Of course,  and more access to clean drinking and bathing water.

All this will be possible because of smart grid technology that we are developing in the western world. New renewable energy sources, such as solar panels and wind turbines and better Solar Storage Batteries systems that are developed by Trojan batteries are all playing a hand that is making the dream of electricity come true to some of these poorer nations.

We think that one of the best  Types of Energy battery storage products at this present time is the Trojan AGM batteries for this purpose.

22 Amp Mobility Batteries saved the day for Child’s Christmas Present

Two new 22 Amp Mobility Batteries saved the day.

Every now and then we get a letter from a customer who needs our help. Sometimes we do not know if they are genuine or just some person trying it on. Last Christmas we learned about

22 Amp Mobility Batteries

22 Amp Mobility Batteries ready to go

a lady in Lancashire called Eileen. I bumped into Eileen when delivering a battery to a customer’s house and she was in the property next door, tending to her friends horse (cleaning the stables out). Eileen looked very short and I noticed that she had no legs.

When Eileen saw the battery signage on my van she came over and told me that she had a wheel chair but could not afford to buy any. This tugged on my heart strings and as soon as I got back to Halifax, I sorted out two new 34 amp Lucas mobility batteries at took them back to Lancashire to give to Eileen as a Christmas present. I had to leave the batteries with the guy next door because Eileen was not at home, but a couple of days later, I received a very nice thank you letter in the form of a Christmas card from Eileen.

Child’s tri-cycle fitted with his new 22 amp mobility batteries

Then a similar thing happened just before this Christmas 2013. We received an e-mail from a guy in Devon who was making a three wheel electric bike for his sons Christmas present.  He had problems with another online company who had sent him the wrong batteries. For some reason the company could not be contacted online or by telephone. I also tried out this company, but could not get any reply.

Mobility batteries sent out to Devon

His son was a very ill young man and so this bike was going to mean the World to him as he needed one with a small electric battery driven engine, his son could not peddle like a healthy child could. The guy was desperate and had no money and asked us for help. I remembered what had happened to Eileen the year before and so decided to give him two 22 Amp Mobility Batteries, which fitted his bike.

The guy in Devon was over the moon and could not thank us enough for our help. His son had a Christmas present that worked thanks to the 22 Amp Mobility Batteries and I was pleased to be able to help someone in distress.
