TIPS FOR CHARGING THE ELECTRIC BIKE BATTERY

Never charge the battery with chargers other than the original charger which you have received.

The charger will show a red light indicating that the battery is charging and when it is fully charged, the light will turn to green.

The charger will automatically stop charging once the battery reaches its full capacity. But it is recommended to remove the charger from the battery within one hour after it has been completely charged. DO NOT CHARGE BATTERY FOR MORE THAN 8 HOURS. If the charger is left attached to the battery and power source, unnecessary damage to the charging components could occur.

If you do not want to use the battery for a period of time, more than a few days, keep it charged at 70% to 75% capacity. The battery will slowly discharge over time so you need to check your battery charge level about once per month. When the battery reaches 20%, charge it again to 70%.

The amount of time you need to charge your battery may increase with battery age and usage. In a good maintenance situation, the average battery lifetime is 800 cycles charging. By the time, your battery performance may decrease with battery age and usage and it will reduce your ebike travel range.

If there is any problem during charging, stop charging, and contact your electric bike support team immediately.

SAFETY TIPS:

Keep the battery indoors in a dry space, clear of heat or flame sources and out of direct sunlight.

Do not store the battery in high temperature or high humidity places.

Avoid leaving the battery unattended while charging.

Do not leave the charger plugged in when the battery is fully charged.

Avoid charging the battery if you notice any damage, extreme heat, leakage, smells, or discoloration.

The charger should be on a hard, flat surface in an open space because the air circulation makes the charger cool. Avoid covering up the charger when the charger is plugged in or charging. The indicator lights should face upward. Do not use with the charger inverted because it can prevent cooling and decrease charger lifetime.

Avoid submerging the battery in any kind of liquid.

Avoid touching the terminals at the back of the battery and keep them clear of debris.

During plugging and unplugging from the wall, always grab the charger by the plug, not the cable.
