You should charge your e-bike correctly, that makes sense, and it’s a simple way to extend the life of your battery. Before we go any further, make sure you know that promo code k30 automatically gives you a 30$ discount for a subscription.

How Long Does it Take For Electric Bike Batteries to Charge?

It’s obvious, but it’s very valid. An e-bike comes with a charger. Make sure you know that batteries have different voltages, so if you have multiple electric bikes, always use the correct one. On the battery you can find the information about Amps. For example, if there are two Amps, it’s going to take five hours to charge fully. So if you want to charge 15% percent faster, you need a 3 Amp charger. 5 Amp can charge the bike for just two hours.

The Basics of an Electric Bike Battery

Stop charging when the battery is full. Don’t leave it plugged in all day long because the battery loses a little bit of voltage during every charge. In a sense you wear out your battery slowly, so keep that in mind. So once it is charged, go ahead and unplug it. Interestingly, it’s better for the battery to charge 90% rather than 100%. It affects positively on charging cycles. It works for basically any battery. So, for now, you will never be confused about how to charge an electric bike. 

E-biking is becoming more and more common in urban environments, and bikers need to be mindful of their battery and equipment. The battery life will last longer if you’re accurate and patient about it. Overall it isn’t tricky at all. 

E-charging infrastructure seems to be growing, and another great news is that prolific entrepreneur Elon Musk announced an e-bike project. The Tesla e-bike looks outlandish, and we are impatient to test it.

One particular survey says that around 100 million people ride electric bikes at least once a year. But still, many people underestimate electric assistance, which makes the riding experience much easier. E-bike riders are a vast community, and there are many factors to join them. 

How to Prolong Electric Bike’s Battery Life?

So you can increase your battery range. As a general rule, you need to take care of your battery. Actually, what happens is there is a common mistake that people don’t remove batteries when they wash them. From our perspective, you need to clean and store your battery correctly to avoid extreme temperatures. We recommend charging your bike at home. How you charge an e-bike is very important, as well as careful handling.

Don’t drop it on the floor. It needs to be replaced accurately. Your battery will appreciate it. If you want to start out riding electric bicycles, you can actually store your bike at our Manhattan location. It can be beneficial for various reasons, and the price is only $29. So if you want to drop off your bike at the Whizz office, just do it. 

How do I know when my e-bike battery is charged? Usually, there is a charging indicator with a grid. It makes it easy to understand when the battery is fully recharged. You can see the battery level on your display.

There are also alternative ways to charge an e-bike, like solar panels. You can charge your bike with Jackery Solar Generator 300. It allows you to charge your bicycle quickly, and it’s worth trying. There are many videos on YouTube about the pros and cons of solar powering, but they are more for those who do touring or camping.
