Battery Testing & Charging Instructions


If you believe that your batteries may be performing poorly, you may bring them into our retail showroom and our technician will run a free diagnostic check on your batteries. Often times, bad batteries are causing your equipment to function improperly.

We are more than happy to test your charger and batteries in our showroom at no charge.

We encourage you to bring your equipment with you if at all possible.

We are more than happy to come to your home and test your charger and batteries. In that case, our standard in-home $60.00 service charge will apply.

Appointments are strongly suggested but not required.

Please call us at 727-375-2102 or toll free 1-866-820-7800 to schedule an appointment.
