With the increasing popularity of electric bicycles, more and more attention has been paid to the problems related to the battery pack of electric bicycles. The correct use and maintenance of the battery pack can prolong the service life of electric bicycles.
The following 6 suggestions shall be taken for the use and maintenance of electric bicycle battery pack:
1. Avoid power loss storage
Power loss state refers to that the battery pack of electric bicycle is not charged in time after use, resulting in insufficient charging and reduced battery pack capacity. The longer the power loss state is idle, the more serious the battery pack is damaged. When the battery pack is idle, it should be charged once a month, which can prolong the service life of the battery pack.
2.Regularly go to the professional battery pack repair organization for inspection
In the process of use, if the continuous mileage of the electric bicycle suddenly decreases by more than ten kilometers in a short time, it is likely that at least one battery in the battery pack has short circuit phenomena such as grid breaking, plate softening, plate active material falling off, etc. At this time, check and repair the professional battery pack repair organization in time.
3. Do not discharge with high current
When starting, carrying people and going uphill, it is best to use the pedal to help the electric bicycle, and try to avoid instantaneous high current discharge. High current discharge is easy to damage the physical properties of the battery plate.
4. Master the charging time
Generally, the battery is charged at night, and the average charging time is about 8 hours. In case of shallow discharge (the driving mileage after charging is very short), the battery pack will be full soon, and overcharge will occur if charging is continued, resulting in heating of the battery pack and reducing the service life of the battery pack. Therefore, it is best to charge the battery once when the discharge depth is 60% - 70%. In actual use, it can be converted into riding mileage. It is necessary to charge according to the actual situation to avoid harmful charging.
5. Prevent high temperature exposure
The environment with too high temperature will increase the internal pressure of the battery pack and force the pressure limiting valve of the battery pack to open automatically, which will lead to the decline of the activity of the battery pack, accelerate the softening of the electrode plate, and cause fatal damage such as heating, bulging and deformation of the shell during charging.
6. When the battery is charged in winter, it should be indoors, and the battery should be warm for two hours before recharging.
If the battery pack can be properly maintained and used according to the above 6 suggestions, it can be used for 3-5 years under normal conditions. However, in addition, it also depends on the mileage you ride every day.
