It's a free photohosting site which allows you to post high res. photos on forums. Once you've signed up you import your photos to the site then copy and paste them onto the forum.  You may have heard of Photobucket which everyone used to use but who then stopped allowing postin g unless you paid them - most people went to Imgur although there are others available.

Yes all connectors fine, had it out again for a few hours with no problems so will just keep an eye.

Everything else spot on, goes really well especially newly charge at around 28V

Hi Richard
Unless I know the scooter I used for the donor has newish batteries I change them as a matter of course.

I get Lucas 34ah on eBay works out just short of 80 delivered. Scooters have intelligent chargers so If they are left on charge when not in use there is no
reason the batteries should not last years.

On my original red build the batteries were about 8 years old and still going strong.

I've used the Lucas ones on both of mine but haven't owned them long enough to report on longevity - never heard of re-conditioned batteries - I suppose they'd be OK as long as they come with a warranty?

After a few months of running the land rover, the battery situation hasnt improved (still only getting 40 mins out of 30Ah).  I have read reviews of these batteries, and it seems other people have been experiencing the same capacity issues.

i am planning on replacing them - i have found a few;
These ==> https://www.tayna.co.uk/mobility-batteries/offers/plc26-12-pair/
Powerline seem to get good reviews,
or pay a bit more and get some Lucas ones https://www.tayna.co.uk/mobility-batteries/offers/lsla20-12-pair/

Or i have found on ebay for £70, a pair of reconditioned Lucas 50Ah batteries, but i am a bit concerned because they are reconditioned?

thanks

Rich
