Top Precautions to Follow While Dealing with Your E-Bike's Lithium-Ion Batteries

  • Strictly avoid overcharging the battery. Disconnect them from the power source immediately as the charge hits 100%. Ideally, you shouldn't recharge brand-new batteries beyond 95%.
  • Do not keep the detachable electric scooter battery at 5% power for an incredibly long time.
  • Do not recharge the detachable battery for more than 2-3 hours straight, and avoid charging overnight.
  • Refrain from charging the batteries for at least an hour after operating the vehicle.
  • Avoid shorting the connectors or opening the casing. Inside, there are no serviceable components, and altering them would void your warranty. Also, ensure that nothing is soldered directly to the terminals.
  • Avoid dumping, striking, or puncturing the Li-ion batteries.
  • Never use a lead-acid charger for charging purposes. 
  • Avoid submerging the removable battery in any liquid substance. 
  • Never wash the electric scooter without detaching the batteries.
  • Refrain from charging in humid conditions.
  • If you find that the battery housing is damaged or water has penetrated inside, disconnect and keep it isolated as soon as possible and contact your supplier.
