Lithium Ion batteries require regular care and maintenance and correct use procedures to ensure that they last the full duration of their expected lifetime.
All of our batteries have been charged to 65%-70% capacity when they leave the factory according to safety requirements.
1. Battery Care while in use
- Do not charge/discharge the batteries when it is 5℃ or below.
Lithium Batteries contain a gel that is damaged in freezing temperatures if current is drawn. In larger electric vehicles, this is avoided by integrated heating systems, which these motorcycles do not contain.
This is solved by removing the battery and storing it inside on colder days, as the battery will be warm when put back in the bike.
- Do not charge/discharge the batteries above a temperature of 45℃ or above Heat is damaging to lithium cells, and storing/use of the batteries when they are 45℃ and above can result in significant cell damage
2. Battery care when the bike is not in use:
During long durations of not riding such as winter or external circumstances, batteries still need to be maintained and stored properly.
- If the batteries are out of the bike they need to be charged for at least 4 hours every 2 months.
- If the batteries are in the bike and connected, and the circuit breaker is on, they need to be charged at least 2 hours every 15 days. This is due to monitoring systems such as alarms, bluetooth and motion detection gradually drawing electricity over very prolonged periods of time
3. Do not over discharge the battery:
It is not recommended to drain the battery below 20% too often. Although the battery has the capacity and is designed to function across the entire range of available battery power, draining the battery below 20% on a consistent basis degrades the overall health of the battery and reduces lifetime.
4. Always charge the battery after each ride.
