How to take care of your battery?
Updated: Jun 12, 2022
All our electric bikes and conversion kits use lithium- ion batteries and require care and handling to deliver you the best possible performance and long life for years.
Charging your battery
Use only the supplied charger and first plug it into the battery with the On/Off button in Off mode, and then plug it directly into the wall outlet, avoid extension cords and power strips.
The charger red light indicates that your battery is in the recharging process and as soon as the light turns green indicates that your battery is fully charged and ready to roll.
Do not overcharge it
Green light means is time to disconnect, this process can take around 3-4 hours, and it is a good idea to set your cellphone alarm to ensure you don't forget to unplug your battery.
Unplug the charger from the wall and then unplug the charger from the battery.
Avoid extreme temperatures
You should charge and store your battery inside a climate-controlled environment, especially if you park your bike outside or store your bike in a very cold garage or in a very hot shed.
Extreme cold or hot temperatures can permanently damage e-bike batteries.
Always make sure the battery and charger are on non-flammable, dry surfaces away from sources of heat, humidity, and flammable materials.
Do not cover the battery or charger during charging.
Transporting your bike
If you take your bike out in a bike rack, inside your car, or in a truck bed, remember to remove your battery from your bike frame.
All our bikes and kits are water resistant but not 100% waterproof, water can damage electrical components, be sure to cover with a plastic bag while you transport your bike on rainy days, it is a good idea to always carry a folded bag in your tool bag or carrier bag
for an emergency ride back home during rain.
When you aren't riding...
If you do not use your bike for longer periods of time, let's say if you're not riding during the winter, it's important to keep your battery inside and you should charge it before storing it.
It is a good practice to recharge your battery a minimum of once a month when is not in use.
Doing this can help ensure the battery is ready and healthy when you resume riding in the Spring.
