Nov 17,2022 | DFShop

In the process of using electric bicycle batteries, you will encounter a variety of problems, and many people will have questions about the problems mentioned in the instructions for use, so what are the problems that confuse users? What are the answers to these questions? Here's a look at the professional electric bike service provider DFShop for you to sort out the 3 common problems and solutions to the use of electric bicycle batteries.



1. Why should I charge the battery before using it for the first time?

A: Although the battery of the electric bicycle is charged when it is first used, it does not mean that it can be used directly. Because all batteries will be shelved for one to two months after leaving the factory. During this time, some reactions will occur inside the battery, consuming part of the electrical energy and thus not reaching the required rated capacity.


2. How to deal with long term unused e-bike batteries?

A: Sometimes, for some reasons, e-bikes are set aside for a long time. In this case, it is advisable to take the battery down and put it in a cool and dry place at the same time. Before placing it, it is best to fully charge the battery and then charge it at least once a month to prevent the e-bike battery from running out of power. And frequent charging can also prevent the aging of the e-bike battery as well as short circuiting and damage to the battery.

And when you need to use it again, you need to use it after a full charge, so as to reduce the damage to the battery.


3. Is it better to charge frequently or wait for all the electricity to be used up before charging?

A: The less you discharge, the more you charge, which means more cycles, which is harmful to the life of the battery. If you want to use ten years, only eight times a year, then you only need to charge and discharge eighty times, which is good for the battery, but in fact this is not possible, most of the batteries used in more than 300 cycles, so excessive and frequent charging of the battery damage is very large.

In addition, because of the price and technology, many charging devices on the market are mismatched, that is, they cannot be matched with the original battery, so charging will lead to more failures and poor reliability, and excessive frequent charging will reduce the life of the battery.


Nowadays, most of the medium and high quality electric bicycles are equipped with lithium batteries, which have the advantages of long service life, strong power, environmental protection and no pollution, and are also safer. So when consumers buy electric bikes, try to choose electric bikes with lithium batteries.

The battery is the most important part of the electric bicycle, without the battery can not be as easy as imagined, so in the use of the process must love the battery, so as to save more expenses, so that the electric bicycle better for our service.
