Yohannes, Is the battery you are getting for your chair power, or is it for a vent? If if is for the chair then I need to know what make and model chair you have. With that information I can tel you what the proper size battery it has and how to get to the batteries. These chairs are 24 volts and raun 2 12 volt batteries. Usualy they are one of 3 sizes, The large ones are group 24 batteries, the next sizew down is the group 22, followed by the group UM1. If yours is an Invacare Ranger or Storm likw Roy'a they use group 24, A keeper on the back holds in two battery boxes, one behind the other, remove the keeper or lift the bale and slide the boxes out. The wiring is connected to the lid. If you have a different model, let me know and I can help there, I can provide pictures if that will help.

Hey Claire--So happy to know your son is getting NIV. Would you need me to send photos of how we have it set up? As it happens my hubby is a wheelchair repair guy and he made a bracket holder for the vent. When we first got Roy's vent they gave it to us in a huge Plexiglas box that interfered with the chair's ability to recline. Son wrote to company and they sent us a free bracket which hubby installed. The hose first came around son's shoulder but hubby redid it's path to come from below. I'm sure my hubby could help the vendor come up with a plan if they cannot figure it out. I am glad your son has a goal, and hope he enjoys school like we did. ANN.

Your son looks great! My son has the exact same chair. Patrick is 21 and we are in the process of getting a non-invasive system for his chair. Our wheelchair vendor has never dealt with it before. They are looking for a bracket arrangement to hold his bi-pap and figuring a way to power the bi-pap from the wheelchair batteries. Those batteries are heavy enough; should be enough to power the bi-pap too! Pat is in college part-time now. My dream is for him to get a job in graphic design.
Thank you for posting these photos.
