You should always follow the directions given by your EV manufacturer whenever it comes to battery preservation. At Cosbike, we make sure our customers always know what is happening with the batteries of their EVs. Keep the following in mind to get the most out of your electric scooter's Battery life.
Preventative measures for your electric bike's battery
1. First, only charge your electric scooter in optimal conditions.
After a long ride, when the electric bike's battery is already hot, many riders rush to plug it in. It's not a good idea to charge a battery or run a motor while they're still hot. If you want to charge your car, you should never do so until it has cooled down completely.
You should also keep your electric bike away from any chemicals or flammable materials while it is charging. To get the most out of your electric vehicle's charging experience, you should seek out a cool, dry, and clean spot.
2. Don't cram in too much.
Each e-scooter manufacturer determines a maximum load based on tests and then recommends a weight limit for their product. The typical range for an e-bike or e-scooter's load capacity is between 100 and 200 kilogrammes (kg), though this can vary depending on the model. When riding an electric bike or scooter, it's important not to overtax the battery. When a car is loaded down, the weight puts stress on the tyres and the batteries.
3. Don't accelerate at different rates.
An electric bike or car cannot compare to the raw power of a gas-powered bike. Small amounts of accelerator pressure are all that is needed to propel an e-bike in India. As a result, you shouldn't apply sudden or excessive acceleration while driving; doing so would put an unbalanced load on the batteries. Stick to the maximum speed stated in the owner's manual.
4. Achieve and Sustain Optimal Tire Pressure.
Proper tyre inflation is an absolute must if you want your tyres and battery packs to last as long as possible. Inadequate tyre inflation, on the other hand, can cause tension differences in the battery and excessive wear and tear. Tires with too much or too little air pressure increase rolling resistance, which is bad for your electric vehicle's batteries.
5. Fifth, adopt a pricing model based on consumption.
Electric scooters typically have a range of 50 kilometres or so. People who travel short distances (10–20 km) on a daily basis should charge their vehicles once every 2 days. Keep in mind that you can go without charging your batteries every day if they still have more than a third of their capacity left.
A Word from the Wise:
Employees of Cosbike, a significant e-bike producer in India, assert that since the public became aware of fire-related accidents, they have always given their customers advice on how to correctly use and preserve batteries. Keep in mind that just like every battery, every charger has its own set of quirks. The voltage and current of each power adapter are different, so you'll need to know what kind of battery your scooter takes.
Any changes to the charger's settings can have an effect on the battery. Always employ the correct charger as the maker stipulates. The battery could be severely damaged if you use a different or inferior charger, as this could cause the battery to overheat and could even have an effect on the health of the cell.
Electric scooters rely heavily on their batteries, which can be compared to the motherboard that links the more expensive microcontrollers and motors. If your battery packs are in good shape, your electric bike or scooter will perform as well as possible. But a number of additional elements, including temperature and bad road conditions, are also to blame and occasionally affect battery performance.
