Five tips for electric bicycle battery maintenance
- Sep 18, 2018 -

When riding an electric bicycle, we all hope to ride it faster and farther. It is not convenient to use the electric bicycle at any time. We hope the charging time is shorter. Therefore, electric bicycle battery discharge current is larger, discharge depth is deeper, charge current is larger, charge interval is longer. This quickly damages battery performance and severely affects battery life. Today to give you a brief introduction of the electric bicycle battery in the maintenance of several common sense.

1. It is strictly prohibited to be in the state of loss of electricity

Storage of battery is strictly prohibited in the state of loss. The state of loss of electricity means that the battery is not charged in time after use. When the battery is stored in the state of loss, sulfuric acid salinization is easy to occur. Lead sulfate crystals are attached to the plate, blocking the ion channel, resulting in insufficient charging and decreased battery capacity. The longer the battery is idle, the heavier the battery damage. Therefore, when the battery is idle, it should be replenished once a month, which can better keep the battery healthy.

2. Accurately grasp the charging time

In the process of use, the charging time should be accurately grasped according to the actual situation, and the usual frequency of use and the driving range should be referred to. Also, note the capacity specification provided by the battery manufacturer, as well as the performance of the matching charger and the size of the charging current, and other parameters, such as the charging frequency. Generally, the battery is charged at night, and the average charging time is about 8 hours. In the case of shallow discharge (short driving distance after charging), the battery will soon be full and overcharged, which will lead to water loss, heating and lower battery life. Therefore, the battery is best to charge once when the discharge depth is 60% to 70%, which can be converted into cycling distance when used in practice. Necessary charging should be carried out according to the actual situation to avoid harmful charging. Power new energy recommends using a reliable, multi-protected smart charger with automatic power outages.

3. Check regularly to prevent exposure

In the process of use, if the range of the electric vehicle is suddenly reduced by more than ten kilometers in a short time, it is likely that at least one battery in the battery pack has short circuit phenomenon such as broken grid, plate softening and plate active substance shedding. At this point, the professional battery repair mechanism should be timely to check, repair or configuration. This will relatively extend the battery life and maximize the savings. Electric cars are strictly prohibited from being exposed to the sun. Excessive temperature will increase the internal pressure of the battery and force the battery pressure limiting valve to open automatically. The direct result is to increase the battery's water loss, which will inevitably lead to battery activity decline, accelerating plate softening, shell heating, bulge, deformation and other fatal damage during charging.

4. Avoid instantaneous large current discharge

When the electric vehicle is started, manned and uphill, please use the push of the pedal to avoid the sudden discharge of large current. Large current discharge is likely to lead sulfate crystallization, which will damage the physical properties of the battery plate.

5. Avoid heating of plug when charging

Loose output plug of the charger and oxidation of contact surface will lead to the heating of the charging plug. Too long heating time will lead to short circuit of the charging plug, directly damage the charger and bring unnecessary loss.
