Stairlifts operate via a battery when in motion, these batteries charge from the mains when parked. The stairlift will continue to operate during a power cut, once it is fully charged. A battery will store enough power to operate approximately 15 trips without being charged.
Therefore your stairlift will operate during a power cut. However, we would recommend that you conserve the battery during this time and it is also advisable to switch off the power after each use.
There is a black on/off switch behind the seat. Turn off to conserve the battery. Please remember to turn this back on when the power returns.
