If you're considering which battery to purchase for your wheelchair, it's also time you consider what battery charger you plan on getting as well. A battery charger for your wheelchair is typically made for a specific battery rating and battery type. If you plan on changing your battery rating or battery type, you'll likely need a new charger as well.
Choose an automatic battery charger so that it will shut off when your battery is completely charged. If you choose a manual one which continues charging even after your battery has reached full capacity, you run the risk of damaging your batteries. If you do decide you'll need more than one type of battery, remember to look for battery charger models which allow you to charge more than one type of battery.
