I need to be able to charge the battery of an electric scooter. The kind
of scooter people use if they need an aid to mobility. There is no plug in,
only an overhead light, in the room we want to use for charging the scooter.
Is it possible to plug the scooter charger into the light socket with an
adapter screwed into the light socket to acommadate the charger cord? Would
this be an electrical hazard? The charger is 7amps, 24 volts.
No problem. Just get one of these at a hardware store
The model 1406 is probably what you want so you can turn off the light
(with the pull chain) but still charge the scooter.
If the charger has a 3 prong, not 2 prong plug, things get a bit more
difficult. Ask the hardware store for an adapter.
Perhaps some batteries, but millions of chargers from portable phones,
cordless tools, emergency lighting are "in rooms" every day. Is this a
problem with sealed batteries? Do you know what type of batteries the
I would suggest some surface wiring to put an outlet where you need it.
You may also be able to pull power from an outlet on the other side of a
wall to put an outlet in that room. I am guessing that your home is rather
old or there would be outlets in that room. If so you may have a number of
issues with the wiring. It might be a good idea to have a professional take
a look to assure you have a safe reliable system when you are done.
