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.

How to select the best electric bike?

On this earth, there would be almost as many vehicles as the adults and majority of them are conventional which require petrol, diesel or gas. Perhaps some young people ride their bicycles.

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.
