Electric Scooter Battery Care and Maintenance

 


 

Electric scooter and electric bicycle batteries can last 2-3 years or more if they are properly cared for and maintained.

 

To get the longest life out of your electric scooter or electric bicycle batteries recharge them after every ride, even very small rides. After short rides you can recharge the batteries immediately, however after long rides it is best to wait around 30 minutes to let the batteries cool down before recharging them. Leaving an electric scooter or electric bicycle battery pack in a partially discharged state for more than a few hours of time may cause internal oxidation of the batteries which lowers the useful lifespan of the batter pack.

 

When replacing electric scooter and electric bicycle batteries replace all of the batteries at the same time and with the same brand of batteries. If different brands of batteries are mixed together the different battery chemistries may cause internal oxidation of the batteries and lower the lifespan of the battery pack.

 

When an electric scooter or electric bike is in storage recharge the batteries at least every 3 months. If they are not recharged at least every 3 months the batteries will internally oxidize causing a shortened battery lifespan and a lower mileage range for the electric scooter or electric bike.

 

Do not throw your old electric scooter or bicycle batteries in the trash. Drop off your old used scooter batteries at a local recycling center that accepts used car batteries or at any auto parts store that accepts used batteries for proper disposal. When you recycle your electric scooter batteries they will be made into brand new batteries again. for an interactive online map with over 30,000 battery drop-off locations in the USA and Canada visit: www.Call2Recycle.com

Electric Scooter Parts offers free online electric scooter battery care and maintenance instructions to help prolong the life of your battery pack. Proper battery care and maintenance will give your electric scooter or bikes battery pack extra life and will help save money in the long run. Did you know that if you let an electric scooter battery sit unattended for over 6 months it may permanently damage the battery due to self-discharging? And did you also know that if you forget to recharge an electric scooter battery on a daily basis after driving the scooter that the batteries lifespan will be significantly decreased? It's all true. Compared to gas powered vehicles electric vehicles require a completely different set of maintenance procedures to keep them alive and running. Everyone is of course used to owning gas powered vehicles which can be parked and walked away from for an extended period of time without causing any damage. Electric vehicles are a completely different animal altogether though. To keep their battery packs in good shape they need to be recharged after every ride, which is an extra procedure that most people are not used to and often fail to perform on a regular basis. Our electric scooter battery care and maintenance guides are designed to help people get the most life out of their electric scooter or electric bicycle's battery pack.
