Hi Mark, I don't use my Edge every day and want to know if I can plug it into a timer. If so, what specs would the timer need (amps and or volts) and how many hours should it charge daily? Thanks, Doug

Jim, the error codes almost certainly relate to the hand control connection, which your provider should be able to resolve. Regarding Bluetooth, you do have incorrect software in the power base and possibly hand control. Your power base should be at

The WHIL, has been around for more than 5 years in the mobility industry. Its use for medical mobility was always questioned as the levers that operate it were not designed for those with adaptive needs. Yes, its nice. It might be helpful to some.

I received two more error's today, but i didn't have my phone to capture the exact messages, just the error codes. They were both in regards to my joystick; Error 110 and Error 34. I had to power my chair off and back on before I could move again.

Thank you for the offer Mark, I appreciate it. I think for now I'm going to stick with w/e batteries NuMotion is using, just to see what their performance is like. So many of my friends use NuMotion and they use me to keep them up to date on change

I took the chair up to Med X Change in St. Charles Missouri for a diagnostic. It appears that the issue is a loose cable in the power base. I'm dropping the chair off to have all the cabling reseated/verified on Monday. The tech (Terry) called into

That's what I had expected from the voltage by not charging it those 2 nights, that the voltage should be slightly higher in the morning, but it ended up going down overnight. I completely understand that the battery gauges aren't exactly accurate,

Dallas, with MK Gels, per MK, there's a 20-cycle break-in period to reach full capacity. So, you're right that up to the first 20 charge cycles, capacity (or range) increases, but after that, the performance is consistent. Thank you.
