There are two types of electric vehicle batteries, AGM and GEL. Both are suitable for an electric scooter such as Pride or Shoprider, it just depends on what your needs are. A GEL Battery works best for a regular user, you use your scooter every day, all year round or take a longer journey. A Gel battery has a deeper depth of discharge and a greater cycle life than an AGM, they also work better in a range of temperatures so if you are out all day in the summer heat, your battery will power on no worries. The bigger the battery, the more power and you will have. If you have a larger or high-powered scooter with lights and a faster speed setting or a carry heavy shopping bags, then you will need a bigger battery or an EX increased capacity battery. All Haze electric vehicle batteries must be charged after use and left to fully charge.
