After hundreds of charges of your scooter's battery eventually it will become old, unusable and will need to be replaced. To be responsible to the environment and to enhance the eco-friendliness of your scooter, you should dispose of the battery properly. Rechargeable batteries contain nickel and cadmium, which can create an environmental hazard if the batteries are thrown away in a landfill or an incinerator. These batteries must be disposed of at a hazardous waste collection site, recycling facility, or an electronics retailer that recycles batteries or a local recycling center. You can you can often drop them off at a local auto parts store, since car batteries contain lead acid, they can’t be disposed of in the trash or tossed in with your recycling. Many retailers, like Home Depot or Auto Zone, will accept dead or used batteries. On average a mobility scooter battery will last about 2 years, so you have some time before having to replace the battery. Enjoy an good riding!
