The E Bike Battery for your electric is often worth a third of the total value of the bike. So it’s critical to pick a high-quality one and maintain it properly.
If a battery is adequately care for, it should last three and five years. You can consider three aspects to ensure that your 48V Ebike Battery lasts as long as possible.
- Keep The Battery Cool In The First Place:
The state of the environment has a significant impact on lithium batteries. Leaving one in your car in the blazing sun, for example, will significantly reduce the battery’s lifespan.
Therefore, when not in use, please keep your bike out of direct sunlight for extended periods and store your 18650 Lithium Battery in a cool place, preferably below 20°C (68°F).
- Keep A Partially Charged Battery – But Not Too Low!
Keeping a fully charged battery reduces the amount of capacity that may be recovered. Depending on how long it sits, if the voltage dips below a specific point, it may cause irreversible cell damage.
Therefore, when keeping the battery for an extended period, make sure it is charged between 80% and 40% of its maximum capacity.
- Don’t Fully Discharge Your Battery Regularly:
On those extra-long rides, a full discharge isn’t a problem! It’s OK to top up lithium batteries frequently, and it’s ideal to use them at the top half of their discharge cycle. Moreover, lithium batteries don’t have the memory effect’ that some other battery chemistries do.
