Tips for Electric Bike Charging for Long Battery Life
Many people today purchase a Super73 or C3STROM ASTRO PRO as their moped. Whether you’re taking a leisurely afternoon ride through the park or navigating the morning traffic, you want to be able to ride and enjoy your electric bike. You must have a fully functional electric bike in order to accomplish that. A sleek and durable aluminum alloy frame encloses and protects the battery and other components of the ASTRO PRO. The frame, cozy silicone saddle, puncture-resistant street tires, hydraulic front fork, and optional rear rack all contribute to this ride’s smoothness and sturdiness.
One key component is your electric bike’s battery. The streets are yours to ride thanks to the 1040Wh Samsung battery. Ride all day and through the night with its 78 miles of provided range and fast charging that takes just 4-5 hours. You want to keep it in good shape, so here are five electric bike charging tips meant to help your e-bike battery live a long life.
Tip No. 1: Charge a New Battery for 12 Hours
Take the time to fully charge an electric bike’s battery for up to 12 hours when you first receive one. This prolonged initial charge helps condition the battery right out of the box by ensuring that current is flowing across all of the cells.
Tip No. 2: Regularly charge your e-bike battery
With frequent use and consequently regular charge, the lithium chemistry batteries used on EVELO electric bikes—and really most electric bikes—should last longer.
You don’t typically need to let the battery of your electric bike entirely discharge. Instead, attempt to charge the battery when it has between 30 and 60 percent of its capacity left.
However, some battery experts advise performing a full discharge once every 30 to 40 charges. However, in all other cases, adhere to the 30-to-60% rule.
This should serve as another additional motivation to get out and ride as you need to use your electric bike frequently in order to charge it frequently.
Tip No. 3: Avoid extremes of temperature
An electric bike battery feels the same way about the weather as most electric bike riders do. Moderate temperatures are better.
To prolong an electric bike battery, avoid temperature extremes both in usage and when you are charging the battery.
Like you, the electric battery on the EVELO Delta likes moderate temperatures, especially during charging.
During a charging cycle, the battery should be in an environment that is warmer than freezing and not hotter than 110 degrees Fahrenheit at the extremes. But why go to extremes? It would be better still if the temperature was between about 60 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit during charging.
Tip No. 4: Don’t Overcharge an Electric Bike Battery
Don’t just leave your electric bike battery on the charger for long periods of time — think several days or more. When you do, you can create a situation wherein the battery will discharge leaving it at perhaps 95 percent of capacity. The charger then goes to work, topping off the battery. This cycle of minor d
discharges and topping off continue creating a series of poor charging cycles.
Instead, use a timer on your mobile device to remind you to take the battery off of the charger.
Tip No. 5: Don’t Store an Empty Battery
Sometimes you may need to store your electric bike battery. Perhaps, you’re about to take a trip. Maybe it is too cold outside to ride. Regardless, don’t store the battery empty, rather look for it to have about 40-to-70 percent of its full capacity.
