    For those who took the time to assist me with the problems regarding my
    scooter (if the situation with the acid-free batteries is recalled), I
    would like to report that during all this time, the batteries were
    never the problem.

    Becoming increasingly perplexed over the situation when the "light
    indicator" always showed a full battery, and yet, when trying to run
    the scooter, noticing the "battery low" indicator, I had a friend of
    mine look at it. It turns out that the problem (all this time) was due
    to a "crust," and rusted fuse holder. Once this was replaced, the
    scooter has ran fine; in fact, it runs extremely well with the first
    set of batteries I bought.

    Nothing is really lost, however, as I now own a number (4) sets of
    batteries.

    I am sending this to the group only as a follow-up with regard to this
    situation as well as a thanks to those who did chime in and assist me.

    Great. Oh, well -- it usually turns out the one thing that's causing
    the problem doesn't show up until the last thing you look at. ;-)

    Good luck again, and hoping things start looking up for you soon.

    Cheers

  3. Don't let the spare batteries sit around unused. Swap them around every
    month or so, so they all get even use. Unused "secondary" (rechargeable)
    batteries deteriorate, and you don't want to waste the money you've
    spent.
