Battery Maintenance -Kids Ride On Cars


Protecting your Kids Car Batteries:

    • Batteries usually have sufficient battery life when first connected. Please use your vehicle the first time if it has sufficient battery life and only charge your battery when it is running low.
    • A low battery will reflect on your battery indicator (certain models) or be evident by the vehicle slowing down.
    • Do NOT let the battery deplete entirely as this will damage and reduce your battery lifespan.
    • Do NOT overcharge your battery (more than 8 hours per charge) nor charge an already fully charged battery as this will damage if not destroy your battery.
    • Charge your battery for upto 8 hours per charge after first use. Where applicable, monitor your vehicle battery indicator or charger indicator (turns green) to note when your vehicle is fully charged.
    • When the unit is not in use, please unplug the battery.
    • Please re-charge the battery frequently to ensure the battery cells stays active (at least once a month)
    • Do not drive the vehicle until the battery is completely depleted. To protect the battery, recharge once low.
    • Chargers are not covered by warranty as this is a perishable item and can malfunction due to uncontrollable causes such as accidental damage; power surges; lightning etc.
    • NOTE:Remember to charge the battery after each use. Completely draining the battery may cause permanent damage to the battery. Electronics inside the battery record the charge-discharge condition of the battery; damage caused by over-discharge or under-discharge will not be covered by the warranty (7 day warranty on batteries)


Active management of an unused battery pack:

Once purchased, the customer should be aware that the formation and build up of lead sulphate crystals will occur in a battery that is left standing over a long time period.  This will result in battery failure due to resistance in electron movement.  This is natural degeneration and not due to poor battery manufacture.  The good news is that it is possible to guard against lead sulphate build up through periodic battery charging.  We recommend charging unused batteries once a month.

Should you require to purchase a replacement battery please contact us.
