One of the first benefits you’ll notice for the AJC-brand replacement battery for your Pride Mobility SC900 Maxima 3-Wheel Scooter is the price. To buy the name-brand replacement, you could spend as much as $500 for a full replacement. With the AJC-brand replacement, on the other hand, you can buy two batteries for less than $150. Those extra dollars you save could go towards having more experiences with your Pride Mobility SC900 Maxima 3-Wheel Scooter instead of simply getting a battery for it.
Another clear benefit to the AJC-brand replacement battery is the size of it. It’s a couple inches smaller than the Pride Mobility-brand replacement battery. Along with that comes the difference in weight. Per battery, you will notice a difference with the AJC-brand replacement battery being as much as 20 pounds lighter than the Pride Mobility-brand. While this may not seem like it should make so much of a difference, think about how much easier it would be to transport your scooter with as much as 40 pounds less weight to pack around.
Just like the Pride Mobility-brand replacement battery, the AJC-brand replacement battery is rechargeable, being a sealed lead acid battery. It goes without saying, this can be a huge factor when buying a battery so it’s worth mentioning.
There are still a few drawbacks to the AJC-brand replacement battery. One of the biggest downsides is the capacity. The Pride Mobility-brand replacement battery has a capacity of 55Ah, while the AJC-brand battery has a capacity of 35Ah. While this won’t affect how much power you have, it will affect how long you have power, meaning it won’t hold a charge as long as the Pride Mobility-brand replacement battery, something that you should definitely take into consideration if you use your Pride Mobility SC900 Maxima 3-Wheel Scooter for longer periods of time.
Another unfortunate factor is that with the AJC-brand replacement battery you have to use your existing hardware and cables. They only send the battery, so you will need to keep your hardware and cables in good condition or you’ll have to separately buy replacements for those.
As far as replacement batteries go, your Pride Mobility SC900 Maxima 3-Wheel Scooter would do well with the AJC-brand replacement battery. The biggest considerations would be the cost and the capacity. While you pay significantly less for the AJC-brand batteries, you will have a shorter amount of usable power and that could cut your day short if you have to keep recharging. But for the price, it’s worth having at least as a backup battery.
