How to improve the battery life of your eBike

For any electric bike, battery is like a fuel tank and it needs to be refilled (recharged) again and again. So if you ride an electric bike from YObykes, you need to know how to maintain your bike and how you can improve its battery life in order to always enjoy the smooth ride.

Before you ride it for the first time, it is necessary to charge the battery for 6-8 hours using the supplied charger. Before you plug the charger into a wall power socket in order to charge the battery, first remove the protective cover from the charging socket and then plug in the charger into the charging socket. A complete charging generally requires around 6 to 8 hours.

An indicator light is provided on the charger body of the electric bikes offered by YObykes. When it’s being charged, it will turn red and when the battery is fully charged, it will turn green. Our electric bikes are powered by four 12V, 12Ah or 12V, 20Ah, 24Ah, 33Ah & 40Ah batteries wired in a series to provide 48 volts. And all batteries charge simultaneously.

Tips to improve battery life
* Charge your electric bike if it has not been used for 3-4 weeks or more
* Always charge the battery in dry and ventilated place to clear the gases emitted from the batteries
* Ensure that the power switch is OFF when you are charging your bike
* Battery should not be stored in discharged condition for any length of time
* Always use the charger provided by YObykes
* Don’t expose the battery to heat, fire or water
* Don’t try to dismantle the charger or the battery
* Don’t expose the battery to extremely high or low temperatures
* Stop charging if any burning smell or overheating is observed

If you keep in mind these tips, you can definitely improve the battery life of your electric bike.

5 Ways to keep up your battery scooter’s performance

Whether you have planned to buy an electric bike or you already own one, you would always want that your bike runs well, right? Well, we would also want that you have the best experience of riding it. That is why we, at YObykes, have come up with some tips that would help you increase the range of your electric bike and enhance its overall performance. Have a look, please!

1. Avoid overloading

Check the pay load capacity of your scooter. It is the carrying capacity of a vehicle which is normally measured in weight. It includes the riders and whatever you are carrying along with you on that scooter. This capacity changes from scooter to scooter. So first of all, check its pay load capacity and make sure that it doesn’t exceed the limit.

2. Don’t often change its speed

While you are riding your electric scooter, don’t suddenly change its speed. You should not suddenly pick up its speed to maximum when it has just been started. And vice versa, you should also avoid unnecessary and frequent braking unless it’s required in case of traffic jam.

3. Start your electric scooter gradually

YObykes come with a key start facility. You just have to turn the key and it will start but you need to take care that you don’t start it at full acceleration. A racing start may quickly drain its battery. So avoid fast acceleration while initiating it.

4. Maintain proper pressure in tires

This is essential! If you want your electric bike to run well, you have to make sure that its tires have proper pressure. If they are under-inflated, their rolling resistance will increase. As a result, their energy might be wasted and you wouldn’t want this, would you?

5. Save its energy

Whenever it is not in use, keep a practice of turning it off. Whenever you stop at traffic signals or road crossings or anywhere to attend a call, turn off your electric scooter. This would prevent draining its battery charge, save the energy and enhance its overall performance.

Above tips would not only just increase the range of your electric scooter but will also give you an uninterrupted and enjoyable ride.

Understand your requirements

One might need a two-wheeler for a daily transportation of hardly 4-5 kilometers. Other might need it to travel almost about 15 kilometers every day. If your requirement is to cover long distances, then battery capacity is the main thing to be considered. If you are in the delivery business, the load carrying capacity of your vehicle is also to be checked.

Design and structure

The best electric bike is the one which is easy and convenient to ride. And a convenient riding experience depends majorly on the design and structure of that bike. These electric scooters hold battery and motor as the major components which make these electric scooters light in weight. You also make sure that the one you are going to buy, is light-weight and easily manageable.

Sufficient storage space

For whatever use you’re going to buy an electric bike, check whether its storage space is sufficient to store your essentials while riding. If you are a student, you would need it to keep your stationeries and if you are a housewife, you would need it to keep your groceries. Keep in mind that if you don’t have enough scope for putting your essentials, you may face the inconvenience.
