    Sounds like something that is complicated because they want to force people to use wheelchair repair people

    That's why you gotta put those pennies in your 401K now, so you can get robbed when you're old.

    Well *I* think it is OBSCENE that batteries for a wheelchair are $359 EACH!!!! Wanna talk about price gauging??? :( It's the same way with skin care products that advertise they are for "diabetics" Look at the labels folks it is the same exact formula. Diabetic skin care foot lotion as compaired to the same brand skin care foot lotions oftentimes show the exact same ingredient lists ... BUT the price for the word "Diabetic" is about $3 or $4 or MORE higher ... it's a RIGGED system .... HUGELY .... LOL ....

    I can see why with batteries that pricey lol

    For real though, that :emoji_poop: is pretty messed up. My dad and I have been trying to resolve my grandma's estate stuff and she barely had any money to cover all the expenses. We've both been pretty bummed out about just how tough it seems to get when you're older.

    You could likely make them for around $100 as long as it doesn't have any funny business with a chip making sure that they are legit batteries but that isn't a good idea unless you know what you are doing.

    I dare say that "making" a Group 24 12v Marine class battery would be a little harder than using the right "chip" LOL ....

    I went off in the comment feedback part of that treadway lab for anyone else that did it. i said it was perfect for getting confessions out of terrorists as well as commenting on the broke ass code and the way the keys were set up. because requesters always value well conceived and articulated feedback from workers lol

    and niloufar has failed me i need that $75 for today so sad!

    I don't actually pay for my prime... but my dad will be happy I guess for the. $9 or w/e it is that I just saved him.

    Hah it sounds like you might know a thing or two about batteries and if you couldn't figure it out it must have been some sort of annoying DRM system.

    If you have a bench power supply you could try to rescue the battery pack or replace some of the cells. (well unless it is a led acid battery or something like that.. in that case you would need to transplant the chip onto another battery most likely lol)

    Ohh that is the batter you are using. I always assume LiPo these days..

    Yeah you are SOL unless you find a way to transplant the DRM chip most likely @rater9

    disclaimer: I barely know what I'm talking about and I'm falling asleep at the keyboard...

    speaking of that.. I'm going to bed later.
