Buying ride-on car batteries

But you’ll need to ensure the dimensions are suitable for the battery fitment in your specific model.  It's not only batteries that need replacing.

Looking after your new replacement ride on car battery

When you get your new battery for your child’s electric ride on car, there are a few things to know about keeping it in tip-top shape. 
  • Keep the battery out of direct sunlight and high temperatures: It’s best to charge your electric ride-on cars in a shaded area like a garage. High heat can damage the toy battery. 
  • Unplug the battery when not in use for long durations: If you’re off on an extended holiday and know that your kids won't be using their electric car for a while, unplug the battery from the car to avoid corrosion.
  • Over over or undercharging: Unless your kids use their ride-on car every day, there is no need to keep the battery on 100% power. Let the battery run down, then charge it up before using it again. Over or undercharging can significantly reduce the ride-on car battery life. For guidance, stick to the exact battery charging times outlined in this guide - How Long Does It Take to Charge a Kid’s Electric Car? 
The great thing about batteries for ride on cars is that they last pretty long. Each will have its own running duration, so check what will work best for your kids.  Are they going on a 30-minute ride around the garden? Or off on a three-hour adventure with their friends? The voltage and size of the battery will determine how much time a single charge will take. If your little one spends hours on their ride on car, the battery is likely not the only thing needing a replacement. We also offer a range of spare ride on car parts to keep the car looking and working like new! It’s important to note the type of vehicle your kid has. A ride on car is different from a quad bike, so be sure to replace the correct battery.
