How to Improve the Battery Life of An Electric Scooter?
Electric scooters are now a popular commuting tool, and they are already very common as a transportation tool outdoors. In daily use, post-maintenance plays a vital role in the performance and life of electric scooters. We all know that lithium batteries are the core of providing power to electric scooters, and are the key components of electric scooters. During use, excessive wear will inevitably occur, which will reduce its service life, So what can be done to reduce the loss of the battery life?
Charge in time
The battery of an electric scooter will have an obvious vulcanization reaction after 12 hours of use. Charge it in time to remove the vulcanization phenomenon. If it is not charged in time, vulcanized crystals will accumulate and gradually produce coarse crystals, which will affect the battery life of the electric scooter. Failure to charge in time will not only affect the acceleration of vulcanization but also cause a decrease in battery capacity, thereby affecting the travel distance of the electric scooter. Therefore, in addition to daily charging, you should also pay attention to charging as soon as possible after use, so that the battery is in a full state. The electric scooter should be unplugged immediately after it is fully charged. Remember not to charge it overnight. Overcharge or undercharge will consume the battery life.
Protect the batteryElectric scooters need to be stored reasonably when they are placed. Do not place them in a place exposed to sunlight or wind and rain, avoid sunlight exposure, and avoid the rain. After all, it is an electronic product. To ensure its safety performance. At the same time, be careful not to dismantle or assemble and replace the battery at personal will, which may cause a safety accident.
Protect the charger
Many people may only pay attention to the battery but ignore the charger. In fact, whether the charger is able to charge depends on whether it can be fully charged in a certain period of time in a normal environment. Electronic products generally age after a few years of use, and chargers are no exception. If there is a problem with your charger, it will cause the electric scooter battery to be insufficiently charged, or the phenomenon of bulging after the battery is charged. This will naturally affect the battery life, so the charger should be protected and placed in a cool and ventilated place to avoid high temperature and humidity. Do not let water enter the charger to prevent electric shock. And replace the problematic charger in time.
Do not change the charger casuallyEach electric scooter manufacturer generally has individual requirements for chargers. Don't change or disassemble or modify the charger at will when you don't know the model of the charger. If the user requires a long mileage, try to equip multiple chargers for charging in different places, use other self-provided chargers during the day, and use the original charger at night. Also, try not to remove the speed limit of the controller. Although removing the speed limit of the controller can increase the speed of the electric scooter, it will not only reduce the service life of the battery but also reduce the safety level of the electric scooter.
Regular deep discharge
Regular deep discharge is also conducive to the "activation" of the electric scooter battery, which can slightly increase the battery capacity. The common method is to fully discharge the battery of the electric scooter regularly. The complete discharge of the electric scooter refers to the first Undervoltage protection when the bicycle is riding under normal load on a flat road. After the complete discharge is completed, the battery is fully charged again, which will increase the battery capacity. At the same time, it is necessary to ensure that deep discharge is not frequent. Deep discharge has a great loss in battery life. This means that you should not wait until you find that the power on the dashboard is insufficient, or even when it is completely exhausted before you think of charging. If the battery is deeply discharged several times in a row, it is easy to reduce the service life of the battery.
