How long does it take to charge the Battery?
Miracle Mobility recommends you change your battery for 14 hours as soon as you get it out of the packaging. The factory will “pre-charge” your battery before shipping. After the initial 14 hours charge it should only take about 6-8 hours to recharge a depleted battery. The charger has a red LED light to indicate it is charging and a green LED light to indicate the battery cells are fully charged. If you are charging the battery and notice that the LED light on the charger changes from Red (charging) to Green (full charge), please Do Not disconnect the charger yet. Let the charge cycle through all of the cells to ensure the battery has all cells fully charged. When the battery is fully charged, you will notice the LED light on the charger remains Green for an extended period of time. Miracle Mobility recommends you keep your battery at an 80% charge level. It is safe to charge your battery for a full 8 hours. The Battery Management System will prevent any overcharging from happening.
