With many people trying to go green these days to try and do their bit for the environment and companies becoming more aware of the changes that they need to make, we are starting to see a positive shift towards genuine green products and services.
There are also plenty of companies out there who are not genuinely going green but they are trying to use the idea in order to promote what they offer and to exploit the situation, knowing that most customers won’t look deeply enough into things to find out if something is as really good for the environment as claimed.
Individuals can make more of a positive change than they realise and its often where some of the best change is occurring and when you combine this, of the many thousands of people around the world who use their initiative and make things happen then we have a good thing going on.
As mobility scooters are a popular aid within the UK and require charging quite often for regular users and need a charge ready for occasional users it’s worth looking into solar charging your mobility scooter battery.
There is a company in the UK who are supplying solar panels that are suitable for the charging of various 24v batteries, including mobility scooter batteries.
They have 2 different sizes available, the Monocrystalline 24v charging 5 watt solar panel that is priced at £44.99 and there is also the Monocrystalline 24v charging 10 watt solar panel which is priced at £79.99 both of them come with 5 metres of bare ended cabling which should be long enough in most cases for where you choose to situate the solar panel, for example fixing it onto your garage roof (if you have one) may be an ideal spot for the solar panel.
The smaller of the two offers an output rating of 5 watts, while the larger one offers 10 watts, they are waterproof too, something that is important with our ever-changing British weather and they will still emit a charge even in cloudy weather.
No charge controller is required for either of these and they are really well suited to trickle charging and making sure that you always have your mobility scooter battery charged while at the same time being very kind to the environment.
The one shown in the image is the smaller of the two, they are a great way to get year-round charging without costing you too much to get started with solar power.
An affordable and green solution to your mobility scooter battery charging needs.
