All modern Acorn / Brooks Stairlifts operate on batteries they no longer need to be connected to the mains supply with trailing cables / Flex’s the batteries are stored located inside the Stairlift carriage and are charged when the stairlift is parked at the top or bottom of the staircase

The charging process is via copper charging strips located at the top and bottom of the stairlift rail; a small charger unit is plugged into a convenient 240V outlet socket at the top or bottom of the stairs when the stairlift is parked at the bottom or top of the stairs the Stairlift will automatically charge via the trickle charger unit

The stairlift will still work even in the event of a power cut /outage and one should get at least 12 full runs up and down the stairs without needing to charge allowing ample time for the power to be reinstated

Battery operated Acorn / Brooks Stairlifts are easy to maintain and less troublesome than the old outdated system of cables and trailing flexes that were notorious for breaking and a labour intensive job to repair

Stairlifts operate on sealed lead acid batteries 12V 7ah x 2 wired in series to give an output of 24V to drive the DC Motor
