WARNING
DO NOT, under any circumstances, cut or remove the round grounding prong from any plug used with or for Invacare
products. Some devices are equipped with three-prong (grounding) plugs for protection against possible shock hazards.
Where a two-prong wall receptacle is encountered, it is the personal responsibility and obligation of the customer to
contact a qualified electrician and have the two-prong receptacle replaced with a properly grounded three-prong wall
receptacle in accordance with the National Electrical Code. If you must use an extension cord, use only a three-wire
extension cord having the same or higher electrical rating as the device being connected. In addition, Invacare has placed
RED/ORANGE warning tags on some equipment. DO NOT remove these tags.
WARNING
The warranty and performance specifications contained in this manual are based on the use of deep cycle gel cell batteries.
Invacare strongly recommends their use as the power source for this unit.
Carefully read battery/battery charger information prior to installing, servicing or operating your wheelchair.
DANGER
When using an extension cord, use an extension cord having at least 16 AWG (American Wire Gauge) wire and the same
or higher electrical rating as the device being connected. Use of improper extension cord could result in a risk of fire and
electric shock.
