Tips To Maintain Your E-scooters’ Battery
08.18.2021 | kugooshop | Blog

When we buy an electric scooter, we hope that it can always maintain a brand new look. However, some people do not know how to maintain the electric scooter in daily use, so that the electric scooter needs to be repaired or replaced in a short time after purchase. In addition to our heartache and loss, we are more upset because of our inadequate maintenance.

Here are some tips to maintain your electric scooter:

  • Charge in time

The battery of an electric scooter will have an obvious vulcanization reaction after 12 hours of use. We need to 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, which will affect the travel 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.

  • Protect the charger

 

Many electric scooter riders only pay attention to the maintenance of the battery, but ignore the charger. In fact, the charger also needs our attention. After being used for several years, the batteries of electronic products will experience aging, and the charger is no exception. If your charger has a problem, it will cause the electric scooter battery to be insufficiently charged, which will naturally affect the battery life.

  • Do not change the charger casually

Generally, each electric scooter manufacturer has individual requirements for chargers. Don’t change the charger at will when you don’t know the model. If the mileage is relatively long, try to equip multiple chargers for charging in different places. You can use additional chargers during the day and use the original charger at night. And please do not 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 of the electric scooter.

  • Regular deep discharge

A regular deep discharge is also conducive to the “activation” of the electric scooter battery, which slightly increases the battery capacity. The common method is to fully discharge the battery of the electric scooter on a regular basis. The complete discharge of the electric scooter refers to the first under voltage protection when the bicycle is riding under normal load on a flat road. After the discharge is completed, then fully charged it again, which will increase the battery capacity.

  • Store it in place

As we know, electric scooters are composed of multiple metal parts. When we are not using it, please avoid to store electric scooters in damp places. We should store the electric scooter in a cool and well-ventilated place to prevent the parts of the scooter from being damp and rusty, which will affect the use.

 

  • Regularly check the tires

Electric scooters rely on two wheels to move. If you have already ridden your scooter for a long time, the tires may be wear out. Please do not ignore this , it will affect the normal driving of the electric scooter. We recommend that you check your front and rear tires every one to two months to ensure your safe travel.

  • Regular cleaning

When you ride your electric scooter outdoors, it is inevitable that some sludge or dirt will stick to it, which requires us to clean it regularly. If you do not know how to clean by yourself, or are afraid of improper operation, we recommend that you consult with our after-sales customer service for scientific cleaning. Regular cleaning of your electric scooter will not only make your electric scooter always keep a brand new appearance, but also extend its service life.
