Electric scooter - battery maintenance

18. Februar 2019 09:13:04 CET

The Xplorer electric scooters come with Samsung lithium-ion batteries that can last long enough if you maintain them properly. The average life of such batteries is 500-1000 cycles (one cycle includes fully charge and battery discharge). After 500-1000 charging the battery loses about 30% of capacity, after which it should be replaced. How long will the battery last for your electrical scooter? It depends only on you. Below you can find a couple of tips on battery maintenance.

1. Lithium batteries should not be charged to 100% after every ride as it was the case with lead acid batteries.

2. Charge the battery to 100% only if you plan to use it in next 24-28 hours, anything longer than that will damage the battery (over time).

3. Do not over-discharge the battery (below 10-15%). If the battery's voltage is too low, it will permanently lose a tiny bit of its capacity which directly affects battery's performance.

4. To extend the battery life to its maximum you should charge it to 80-90% percent.

5. Do not expose the battery to extreme temperatures (below -5 °C and above 50°C).

6. If you plan to store your e-scooter for extended periods of time, charge the battery between 60-80% and every month check the battery level and charge if needed to avoid over-discharge and damage.
