As an important part of an e-bike, the battery is one of the key components of an e-bike, which determines the range of the vehicle. Declining battery life will result in reduced range and affect the riding experience, so extending battery life is key to maximizing the value and utility of your e-bike.
Ways to extend the battery
Your vehicle's battery will last longer if it is always in good condition. There are a number of ways to help you keep your battery in good condition.
Proper Battery Storage
Store batteries at moderate room temperature. Ambient temperatures that are too hot or too cold will degrade battery chemistry more quickly. It is best to store batteries in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight to avoid overheating. If you need to store the battery for a long period of time, charge it to about 50% and perform a maintenance charge every few months to avoid deep discharges that can damage the life of the battery.
Optimal Charging Habits
Completely draining the battery tends to damage its life, so it needs to be recharged regularly. For short-distance commuters, it's best to charge your electric bike every few days while avoiding overcharging.
Pre-trip inspection and maintenance
Check the battery before each ride for battery charge, swelling, cracks, etc. Replace old batteries with drastically reduced mileage.
Other things to keep in mind
Riding styles such as rapid acceleration and hard braking consume a lot of power, causing e-bikes to consume more battery capacity. In addition, heavier loads increase power consumption and accelerate battery drain.
By taking measures in storage, charging, maintenance and riding style, you can keep your e-bike battery in good condition and get a longer service life.
