Re: Expert battery advice needed - Aixam Mega City

Hello, I have found Leoch Deep Cycle Battery 12v 75Ah - LPC12-75 which is a virtual direct replacement for the existing batteries. I got 5 from a mobility scooter company on ebay for a very good price and 7 from the Battery Company at a reasonable price. In total, the average cost including VAT and ...

Re: Expert battery advice needed - Aixam Mega City

Hi Greg, Thanks for your thoughts. The inbuilt charger on the Aixam only looks at the terminal voltage of each of the 12, 12V batteries, not at individual cells so a new charger looks required.

Re: Expert battery advice needed - Aixam Mega City

Hi Carl, well I have received 2 Megapulse units and installed them in my car. It was suprisingly easy, I didnt have to take the whole floor coverings out. I just removed the seats and there is a cover with 3 nuts on it covering each battery bank. The Megapulse units fitted snugly between 2 batteries...

Re: Expert battery advice needed - Aixam Mega City

Hello Carl, I have been sent a reply from Megapulse suggesting that 2 x 24V units are used as shown on the diagram. I have 2 thoughts, is there room to place them on top of the batteries, I reckon the units are 2 1/2" - 3" thick. Also, How easy is it to remove the seats and floor pan ? hav...

Hello, I have had a Mega City + for 3 1/2 years and apart from 2 warranty exchange chargers has performed fine. ( both times the chargers failed because of their cooling fans ) The batteries are showing signs of age and am considering installing one of the Megapulse FAB-MK4 conditioning devices as s...
