Having mobility issues shouldn’t mean that you can’t enjoy the world. That’s why you got a Pride Mobility PMV650 Wrangler. But part of enjoying your Wrangler is having reliable battery power. At some point, your batteries will die and you’ll have to replace them. To do so can cost up to several hundred dollars, but it doesn’t have to be with the AJC-brand Pride Mobility PMV650 Wrangler Battery.

An intrinsic benefit of the AJC battery is that it is rechargeable, though that isn’t unique to the AJC-brand battery. However, if you’re going to invest in these replacement batteries, you definitely want them to be rechargeable and low-maintenance. With the AJC-brand battery, you have both the rechargeability and the low-maintenance build of a sealed lead acid AGM Technology battery.
One big benefit of the AJC-brand battery for the Wrangler is that it’s IATA/ICAO-compliant. This means there are no restrictions for air transport, opening up the world to you. Instead of having to rent a scooter when traveling, you can easily bring yours along for the ride and explore to your heart’s content.
The AJC-brand battery is also UL-recognized and has a long service life. You won’t have to worry about this battery. Once it’s installed, you are good to go. It also has a very low self-discharge, or the amount of power that drains even from the battery when it’s not in use. It’s estimated that the self-drain percentage of this battery sits around 3% per month as your Wrangler sits unused.
There are still some drawbacks. The battery itself is heavy, sitting at about 65 pounds per battery. However, it’s important to note that the weight of the AJC battery is still better than other brands, including the Pride Mobility-brand replacement.
It’s also expensive. For the AJC-brand battery, you will have to spend about $218 per battery. You also have to buy two batteries for a complete replacement, meaning you’ll spend nearly $450 for a full battery replacement. That being said, the Pride Mobility-brand battery runs about $330 normally, meaning a cool $760 for a full replacement.
Why not buy just one battery at a time? That leads us to another flaw, though one that is more related to the scooter itself than the battery: you have to replace both batteries at the same time to avoid reducing the lifespan of the newer battery. When the new battery works with an older battery, the new battery can become drained faster because of how the batteries work together. And after spending a couple hundred dollars on one of the batteries, you want to keep them for as long as possible.
You also have to use your existing hardware and cables to connect the batteries. It does not come with replacements and so, if your hardware or cables are damaged or worn, you will have to buy those separately. All around, the AJC-brand replacement battery for the Pride Mobility PMV650 Wrangler Scooter is very comparable to other replacement batteries for this brand and model of scooter. While it does have the issues of cost and weight, it’s also rechargeable and very reliable. And if you need a replacement battery, why spend hundreds of dollars more than you need to? You’ll save some big bucks and get the same reliability with the AJC brand.
