Battery Pack
Battery Pack

Battery Pack

  • The addition of the power source eliminates the need for wires to be run from the lift to the automobile battery when installed, thus reducing installation time, cost, and complexity
  • All of Pride's power lifts (except the Olympian) have the option of selecting their own 12 volt power supply which easily recharges by plugging the unit into any standard wall outlet. Each charge lasts approximately 150 cycles*
  • Lifts may be wired to the vehicle's power supply upon request.
  • By using the battery pack option, the lifts can be easily transferred from one vehicle to another

*Tested under ideal conditions using 325 lb. Scooter. Cycles per charge may vary depending on various factors such as scooter or power chair weight and climate.
