The heart of the e-bike, the battery requires quite some attention. Remove the battery pack from the electric bicycle and after turning off the switch on the battery pack, plug in the battery. Take caution when handling heavy batteries.
Unlike phones and laptops, it is never advisable to let the battery discharge completely. Maintaining the battery charge and charging it when there is a 30-50% charge is a healthy idea.
Lithium-ion batteries are the most commonly used in e-bikes. They do not have a memory effect, so there is no concern over losing capacity owing to repeated partial charges. However, they are sensitive to temperature and cold temperatures can drain the battery quickly. If the temperature of your surroundings can get very low, then it is advisable to store the battery in a warm place.
The battery capacity will vary the time needed to be fully charged. Reading the instruction manual can prove beneficial because of the required changes with models. The built-in cut-off in chargers will stop the battery from charging once it is fully charged. However, it is good to not over-rely on the cut-off and overcharges the battery. Also, it is always recommended to use the prescribed battery chargers when charging the battery.
Additionally, for safe rides frequently check and adjust the brakes. Monitor if there are any loose parts or excessive wear in of brake pads and rotors. If you find anything problematic, then a little examination by a professional will not harm you. The wear level mentioned in the specifications of the manual indicates the time to replace brake pads and rotors.
Proper maintenance can keep away huge costs. So do spare some time to pay necessary attention to your e-bikes maintenance needs.
