Caring for your BICI electric bike battery this winter

As temperatures continue to drop, the need for proper storage for electric bikes is important to increase its longevity and performance. Batteries are an essential component in electric bikes. Electric bike batteries have an average charge life of 30 miles and a lifespan of up to 1,000 full charges (that is, from a dead to full battery).   Do not store it fully charged or on the charger all winter. Store the battery with a charge level between 40% and 80%. The average battery charge is 30 miles. Store the battery in a location that will not experience extreme temperatures (either hot or cold), such as an insulated garage or in your home. Store the battery in a dry location. Don't leave the battery on the charger for prolonged periods of time. Although most chargers have an auto-off function, you'll want to be sure there aren't any issues and store...

3 WAYS TO PROLONG THE LIFE OF YOUR BICI ELECTRIC BIKE BATTERY

The battery for your electric bike is typically worth about a third of the value of the entire bicycle, so it’s important to find a good quality one and take care of it . No matter what electric bike you buy nowadays, chances are it runs on a lithium-based battery. Believe it or not lithium batteries have been around since 1912 but it’s only been in the last 15 years that they caught on and became economical in consumer applications. There are “lithium-ion” batteries and “lithium polymer” (aka “lithium-ion polymer”) batteries and the difference between them is the type of electrolyte used. Other than that, there isn’t a significant variance: Li-Polymer allows for a slight increase in energy density but is 10-30% more expensive and so manufacturers have yet to decide upon one over the other. There is also a range of lithium chemistries available in different batteries and manufacturers...
