    They were Deep-Cycle Gel Cells (Marine Type) as far as I know,the chair is a Jazzy 1100..very reliable even if somewhat heavy 300 lbs!
    The chair itself uses 2 batteries in series...with a range of 24 miles so it says in the literature..ive only taken it 12 at most,what with steady runs up inclines etc.

    What do you mean 1100? Oh, model number? Deep cycle marine batteries are what is recommended in back up power systems like dynamometers and synchronis power supplies. I did not know marine batteries were gel cells. I knew they could not deliver the high cranking amps required of a lead acid battery but knew they were more reliable with a steady current consumption. I always wondered what was the difference between marine batteries and regular lead acid. Maybe that is it.

    I thought is was something to do the problem of jump starting another boat from a boat. You know how there is a heavy ground in the water and it can cause a battery to explode?
