Usually, electric bicycle batteries have a life time, which is often referred to as the service life, and according to the manufacturer's regulations, most electric bicycle batteries can be used for a set number of years, but according to Urbike's survey data, many electric bicycle batteries are not used for the manufacturer's specified years, many are halfway to the end of the life. So, what exactly are the behaviors that lead to the short life of electric bicycle batteries?
High-quality electric bike dealer Urbike pointed out that although some big brands of electric bike batteries do not need frequent maintenance, but maintenance can extend their service life, but many users of maintenance this point is not in mind, and even many behaviors have hurt the battery, and ultimately lead to the battery short life . And their behavior includes the following.
1. Overcharge, fast charging
Overcharging, we all know that overcharging is bad for any electrical appliances, but even so, there are still many users who do not pay attention to the electric car battery charging, resulting in the battery eventually overcharged, and overcharged more times, it affects the conversion of the battery, and ultimately affect the life of the battery.
Many young people forget to charge their batteries because they always use the charger they carry with them when they need it, and then use it again, and then charge it again, over and over again, causing great damage to the e-bike battery. The most direct manifestation of this is that the capacity of the battery is reduced. The capacity of many batteries is very good, and they generally last more than a year and a half, but the speed charging will make this life greatly reduced, so they will be scrapped in less than a year. And even the better high-end battery can be used for two and a half to three years, if the frequent speed charging, it will also reduce the life.
Therefore, it is also recommended that users must not fast-charge, overcharge, otherwise even the high-end brand electric bicycle battery can not use the manufacturer set years.
2. Not charging when idle
Many users think that I don't need to charge the battery because I don't use my electric bike, so when do I use it, when do I charge it again. This idea is wrong. Even if the electric bicycle battery is not used, there will be a phenomenon of running electricity when it is idle, so the newly bought battery power is not full, even if it is full, it is also full, the principle of which is this.
If the battery has not been charged, but the battery itself consumes electricity, although the amount is small, but over time will also have an impact on the electrode chemicals, and thus endanger the life of the electric bike battery.
For example, if a fully charged battery can run at least 40 km, if it is left uncharged, the capacity of the battery will slowly decrease and it will not be able to run the initial 40 km, and may only run 38 or 36 km.
Therefore, it is recommended that even if the user does not use the battery should be charged once a month or every other month, which can form a kind of protection for the battery, but also to make the battery life is stable, will not be shortened.
