replacing charger plug on mobility scooter
2 replies 91 views
I'm trying to repair a friend's mobility scooter. It needs a new charging socket, which is located behind the driver's feet. The model is the TGA Super Sport trike (manufacturer's website). The socket is a XTR, so it is easy to identify which terminals positive, negative & neutral.
Any advice would be welcome. Do these wires connect directly to the batteries? It has 2x 12v Lead Acid gel batteries. It's difficult to find a qualified mechanic locally.
I find the design very antiquated. I have worked on ebikes before, and they have far simpler electrics. Batteries are always Lithium Ion; and they have an integrated charger socket & fuse. Mobility scooters I feel could be user servicable, but aren't.
