I'm in almost the same exact situation as you Greg...I have a meeting tomorrow 
with my medical supplier to help with trying to get a new chair...mine is over 
7 years old and losing power just like yours...i used to get about 8 miles also 
when I had the jell type batteries my chair originally came with  but they will 
only replace mine with the acid type when the original ones wear out, they said 
due to cost and etc.  I hope I can get a new chair with the jell batteries and 
keep this for a back-up....because my old back up chair is shot.  Dan H**

my chair, to see why the batteries are not holding a charge. I get about 3 to 4 
miles. I use to go 8 miles fine. I do not think he knew his butt from a hole in 
the ground. All his answers were “Charge it longer, needs 12 hours a day” I've 
been in a chair 34 years, never charged it 12 hours a day and I wet 13 miles 
one day. Just got new batteries 2 ½ months ago. He did no real testing other 
than an Amp? Meter. They will replace the batteries, and hope its that. Hope 
its not the chair draining them for some reason. I'd like to get it at least 
running good before I get a new one. I'd like to keep it as my backup. Greg
