BatteryHow do I best preserve my Bikes battery life?
1. Always pedal along with your E-bike. While riding up hills especially you should be assisting your E-bike so the battery isn’t depleted too quickly.
2. Always keep your battery charged. Lithium batteries life cycle can be extended by not depleting your battery fully. Even if you haven’t depleted your battery entirely during your ride we suggest that you charge it.
3. Do not overcharge your battery. Be sure not to leave your battery charging for more than 24 hours at a time.
How do I extend the range of my Bikes E-Bike per charge?
1. Your E-bike will consume much less battery when you begin riding by pedaling and not using the throttle. Stop and go riding with the throttle can limit the range of your E-bike.
2. Always make sure your tires are inflated properly. Riding on low pressure tires will consume more energy.
3. Always pedal up hills. Do not use throttle only when riding up hills.
4. Use your mechanical gears correctly. When you are pedaling make sure to be in the correct gear. Lower your gears while going up hills and raise the gears on flat and downhill terrain.
How long does it take to re-charge the batteries?
On average the recharge time for our batteries is about 4-6 hours.
How many years will my Bikes battery last me?
The average rider can use a lithium battery for 2-3 years before feeling like it needs to be replaced. This depends on riding conditions, the weight of the rider, amount of use and discharge rate over time. Discharging your lithium battery quickly under high current will lower the battery capacity over time.
The Battery can be charged up to 1000 charge cycles. If you fully charge your battery every day you will likely only get 2 years out of it. If you don’t charge your battery every day you will get a longer life out of it.
What do the terms amps, watts and volts mean for my E-bike?
2. The amps or current refers to the speed or rate of flow of electricity as it is being drawn from the battery. The higher the current the quicker the battery will be depleted. High current happens when riding with a heavy load, riding uphill, riding on bumpy and grass terrain etc.
3. The watts is a measure of the output of power that your E-bike can provide. Watts are measured by multiplying the voltage by the current.
Example: A 350 watt system can put out up to about 600 watts at peak but will provide 350 watts of power when riding under normal conditions. The rated power of your E-bike will affect the speed and or torque depending on the configuration.
What is the cycle life of my battery?
All Our Electric Bikes come with a lithium battery. The Lithium-NCM battery has a life cycle of 700 cycles. Over time your battery capacity will diminish. This means that you can charge and discharge the battery completely 700 times at a discharge rate of 0.5C before the capacity depletes to 80% efficiency.
