Common Power Wheels Battery Questions

Choosing which Power Wheels model to Power Wheels Batterypurchase for your child is only half the battle. Once you have made your selection, you need a Power Wheels battery and Power Wheels charger to keep it charged, general maintenance and upkeep, and of course to always make sure the vehicle is being used as safely as possible. Your Power Wheels application should be able to run for about 45 minutes to an hour on a charged battery. However, several factors, including terrain, rider weight, gear level, and the wear and tear of the tires all play a role in the lifespan of your Power Wheels battery. We have compiled a few of the more common questions that arise when it comes to Power Wheels batteries.

Which battery do I need?

Power Wheels has done their best to make this fairly simple by color coding their batteries. This way, even if the old part number differs from the new part number, the battery will be the same exact fit as long as the color matches.

Your other option is to check the model number which is usually on a white sticker in the battery compartment. You can shop for the model number that matches up.

Which charger do I need?

Keeping in line with the simplicity of color coding, every battery charger from High-Tech battery Solutions is labeled with what color of battery it will work with, such as our Power Wheels 12V Grey Battery Charger.

How do I charge my battery?

Here is a list that you can follow. It provides the amount of time each battery needs to charge once all the power has been used up.

  • Grey P.W. Battery  –  9.5 Hours (3 hours if using a fast charger)
  • Red P.W. Battery  –  10.5 Hours
  • Blue P.W. Battery  –  13 Hours
  • Green P.W. Battery  –  10.5 Hours

 
How can I tell if I need a new battery?

You will know it’s time for a new Power Wheels battery if any of the following apply:

  • Ride time has been reduced (5- 10 minute range) on a regular basis.
  • The battery hasn’t been used in over a year.
  • The battery has a crack in the case or has bulged out on the sides.
  • The battery has a voltage reading of 10 or under.

There are other signs that your battery might need to be replaced, but these are just a few of the more common indicators.

Investing in a Power Wheels toy will bring hours of fun to your child. Just remember to keep a charger on hand to make sure you can get their vehicle charged up in time for the next ride!
