LiFePO4 Electric Bike Battery Maintenance And Storage
(1).Before first use, the battery should be fully charged, after 3-5 times fully charged and discharged, the battery can have max capacity. The First charging should be 24 hours to make sure all cell is fully charged.
(2).Timely charging can greatly extend the battery lifecycles, after discharging, the battery should be charged in time, and keep the battery in normal capacity, long time in low voltage will greatly reduce the lifecycles.
(3).The battery should be charged in ventilation and dry condition, avoid approaching fire, it's better to get the battery off the E-bike when charging.
(4).The Optimum working condition is 15-40. Beyond this temperature may affect the battery performance.
(5).Do not connect the positive pole and the negative pole directly, may short circuit and cause danger.
(6).Do not use organic impregnate to clean the battery, if on fire, do not use CO2 (carbon dioxide) fire extinguisher, But use CCl4 fire extinguisher.
(7).If the battery packs have some problem, please deliver to the manufacture or the authorized technician; please do not uninstall it by yourself.
(8).Do not put your E-bike in insulations in hot summer.
(9).When temperature is higher than 40, the battery lifecycles may reduce and the BMS may shut down the battery output for protection. Therefore, the battery should be avoiding insulation in summer.
(10).When temperature is below -10,the battery lifecycles will also reduce, and the battery can only keep about 70% capacity, therefore, your E-bike may cover less miles in winter, it's normal.
(11).The battery should be placed indoor in winter, so does charging.
Note For Charging:
(1).Must use the charger provided by the manufacture or manufacture authorized charger.
(2).Charger the battery with proper charger, the lamp turn red when charging, when the indication lamp turn green, this shows that the battery is full charged, 2-3 hours extra charging will be better.
(3).Do not connect the charger with the battery with AC power for long time when it's fully charged.
(4).Do not connect the charger with AC power without battery for a long time.
(5).Please charge the battery in dry, ventilated and no fire condition, do not uninstall the battery.
(6).Do not have any thing easily catch fire within 1.5 meters when charging.
(7).Do not charge near things easily catch fire or explode.
(8).It's better to get the battery out of the E-bike when charging, to release the heat.
(9).When charging, put the charger beyond children's touch, avoid danger.
Note For Discharging:
(1).Try to avoid high discharge current, too high current may reduce the lifecycles.
(2).Please accelerate slowly, avoid sharply accelerate when start the motor.
(3).Do not start from quiescence at brae, when toughly operation, better to pedal.
(4).When start in low temperature, it's better to pedal to start and keep the battery indoor.
(5).Go uphill, go on the bridge or run against the wind, better to pedal to support.
(6).Put the battery gently.
(7).When run in rain, avoid the water in the battery, BMS and motor, avoid short circuit.
(8).Take the battery off the E-bike or cut off the power when do not use it, avoid the loading discharge from the battery, strictly prohibit to storage the battery in low voltage.
Note For Storage:
(1).The batteries shall be storied within environmental condition of 0~30 not less than 75% relative humidity. And don't dispose near the fire and expose in the sunlight.
(2).When in mass storage, it's better to keep 50% capacity, better to keep the battery no more than one year.
(3).In order to avoid over discharge, it's better to charge the battery in 3 months, charge it for 2 hours a time.
(4).For mass storage, take measures to avoid fire, keep each battery a distance or put some material to prevent it catching fire.
Note For Transport:
(1).The battery can packed and transported in a box. During the transportation, the battery should avoiding vibration and shock and extrusion. And don't dispose near the fire and expose in the sunlight. The battery can transport by auto, train, ship and airplane.
(2).The battery should be kept with positive pole up, and have a sticker show "UP", do not upend, and do not put the battery in disorder.
(3).On the transport must be gentle, do not throw down or hit something.
(4).Do not put heavy things on the battery when transport.
(5).Do not transport with things easily catch fire or explode or metal, may cause danger.
(6).On the packing should have some caution for fire and water.
(7).On the transport the battery should keep 50% capacity, when arrives, fully charge the battery.LiFePO4 Electric Bike Battery Maintenance And Storage
