Here are some tips to help you extend the life of lithium-ion batteries:
-After use, it is advisable not to charge your battery immediately: let it cool for about twenty minutes.
-Always use a charger suitable for your electric scooter
-Favor small charges and recharge your battery after each important use: do not wait until you have completely drained the battery.
-For long periods of non-use, it's best to keep your battery half-charged.
-Always plug your charger into the electrical outlet BEFORE plugging in your electric scooter, and never leave it charging unattended.
-Do not expose your batteries to temperatures exceeding 45 degrees: the ideal temperature is rather between 5 and 30 ° C.
-Be careful of moisture uptake or water damage when driving in heavy rain.
And to avoid having to worry about the autonomy of your electric scooter, why not equip yourself with two chargers? This will allow you to recharge it at the office during the day, before recharging it when you get home.
Note: only one charger is provided with purchase, order the second separately.
