The key to a long service life of an electric bike is the economical use of power supply resources.
So try to follow these tips for a longer life of your battery:
- Smoothly accelerate the electric bike, don't "tear" the gas at the start. Help the vehicle accelerate by pedaling. Even 2-3 turns reduce the load on the motor wheel. Also, pedaling during acceleration saves battery and increases the duration of autonomous driving.
- Try not to abuse the functionality of the motor.
- Do not connect third-party devices to the battery: phones, tablets, etc. Charge only those accessories that are needed to complete the vehicle.
Choose a soft driving style without choppy movements and sudden braking. Low speeds require less power. Acceleration increases the amount of mechanical work of the motor. And this increases the current consumption of the battery. Measured movement is an increase in the mileage of the electric bike and the user's safety.
Monitor the charge level of the power source, monitor the health of electrical components.
Pay attention to the condition of the tires, and pump them up to the desired pressure. The mileage of the bike on a single charge will be significantly reduced if the tires are flat. Check their wear regularly. Tires in poor condition make the ride more difficult.
Minimize wheel load. The weight of the items being transported must not exceed the e-bike's carrying capacity.
As you move, adopt an athletic cyclist's low, aerodynamic riding position. This will reduce air resistance and facilitate movement speed. This means less stress on the battery.
To summarize, you should always take care of your vehicle, then it will last longer. E-bike owners who take good care of their bike will significantly extend the life of its battery and increase the number of charging cycles.
