BattBoost battery booster

BattBoost, a new product aiming to provide extra power, distance and charge assurance for users of mobility scooters, powerchairs and electric wheelchairs, has been launched.

According to the manufacturer, the patent protected BattBoost can be fitted to powered mobility vehicles safely, quickly and easily in seconds, without tools, and without the need to replace or remove the original mobility vehicle’s batteries.

Incorporating lithium power and specially-designed electronics, BattBoost automatically provides additional power for the mobility vehicle as and when required, significantly increases travel range and usage time, while at the same time maintains optimised charge of the mobility vehicle’s batteries.

With over 20 years’ experience in the mobility industry, inventor Ian Gray says that he developed BattBoost to address head-on the problems that he found to be very frustrating and stressful to the mobility vehicle user.BattBoost on a scooter

Ian commented: “Owning and using a mobility vehicle shouldn’t be a stressful experience, but a positive one, adding freedom to the user’s life.

“However, the many problems that can be caused by the mobility vehicle’s batteries can limit their freedom and cause unnecessary stress for the user, leading in many cases to ‘range anxiety.’”

“BattBoost not only significantly increases the travel range of the mobility vehicle, but also gives the vehicle an extra ‘power boost’ as and when needed, for example on inclines, whilst at the same time maintaining optimised charge of the mobility vehicle’s batteries”.

Ian, who is trained as a physiotherapist, says that his background helped highlight another common problem of users having to remove a heavy battery pack for charging.

He added: “Mobility scooter battery packs are commonly 15-20kg in weight and often very awkward to remove for charging. This can result in the user experiencing physical pain and injury, or even a refusal to purchase a mobility scooter in the first place due to the susceptibility to injury or simply the inability to lift the battery pack”.

“The BattBoost is a quarter the size of a battery pack, weighs less than 2kg, is very easily removable and is usually all that is required to be removed and charged (using the supplied lithium charger), without the need to remove the heavy bulky mobility scooter battery pack for charging”.

“So not only does the BattBoost significantly increase mobility vehicle travel range and usage time, provide an extra power boost when needed, maintain optimised battery charge, it also reduces the susceptibility to injury and increases the possibility of a person considering the purchase of a mobility vehicle in the first place”.

The BattBoost is supplied complete with lithium charger, storage bag, discharge cable, quick-release attachment straps, carry handle and user manual
