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.
