Proper maintenance of the battery will maximize the lifespan and capacity.
Even with proper care, rechargeable batteries do not last forever. Every time the battery is discharged and subsequently recharged, its relative capacity decreases by a small percentage. You can maximize the life of your battery by following the instructions below:
- Batteries should be fully charged immediately when you receive your brand new bike. The recommended charging time is 6 hours for a 100% charge.
- Make it a habit to recharge at the end of each ride, so your bike will always be ready to go again.
- Charge the battery and use the bike at least once every 90 days.
- Observe operating conditions between 40°F - 85°F (4°C - 30°C).
- Even if it can withstand storage temperatures of 23°F - 104°F (-10°C - 40°C), you can optimize its shelf life by storing it at room temperature 65°-75°f (18° - 23°C).
- Do not leave your battery exposed to high temperatures or direct sunlight for long
periods of time (for example, on the back of a car in direct sunlight).
- The rated output capacity of a battery is measured at 77° Fahrenheit or 25° Celsius. Any variation in temperature will alter the performance of the battery. High temperatures will reduce the overall battery life
- Lithium-ion batteries do not a memory. Partial discharge or charge cycles will not harm the battery's capacity or performance.
- Please ensure that the contacts are always clean and do not insert metal objects.
- Always make sure to turn the bike OFF after use
- Be friendly to the environment and recycle your old batteries at your local battery recycling center. Please check your local waste management regulations.
Do not open the battery. There is a risk of short circuit. Opening the battery will void the warranty. Protect the battery against mechanical damage, heat (in case of prolonged exposure to sunlight), fire, and immersion in water. There is a risk of explosion. In case of damage and improper use of the battery, vapors may emanate. Keep children away from the battery.
