  1. You wouldn’t believe what I do and where I go on mine or that the battery is dated as 13 years old this summer. I bought the scooter second hand 3 winters ago. I run it to flat and charge it to full twice or three times over the summer then park it up again over winter. I bought it when the earlier model gave out after much use/abuse, first by my late Mum, then myself. I’m really talking of donkeys’ years of reliable use from a Shoprider Sovereign 4 because the mobility vehicle Mum had before that was a ‘Battricar’, and your local dealer is unlikely to have even heard about those! Yes, I second your top budget choice.
