    While reading an other discussion I had an other thought about this topic.

    Most wheelchair batteries are easily removable. They either slide right out or can be unplugged and removed. In fact years ago we had to routinely remove the lead acid batteries from the chair and double bag them.

    This can still work. Bag the battery, keep it vertical, and tip the chair to your heart’s content. Then you only have to worry about arm rests, foot rests, cup holders, phone holders, cushions……….. Ok so you have lots to worry about, but at least the batteries won’t lay on their sides.
