How to optimize the performance and lifespan of my battery? 🔋📈

All LEGEND eBIKES bicycles operate with Lithium batteries. Like any lithium-ion battery, the battery naturally ages, even when not in use. Over time, it loses capacity.

The charger light will glow green when the charge is complete. Besides recharging, these batteries do not require any other maintenance. To extend the battery's life, do not store the bike in areas where the temperature may drop below 0°C or exceed 50°C. In other words, park the eBike in the shade or in a cool place.

It is advisable to avoid fully draining the battery. Charge the battery before it drops below 30%.

Storage

To store the battery, it is recommended to keep it at around 60% of its capacity. Try not to store the battery fully discharged or fully charged for extended periods. Due to the natural self-discharge rate in lithium-ion cells, you should check the charge level every 2 months or so and, if necessary, charge it for about 30 minutes.

It's very important to remember the following:

  • Store at 60% charge.
  • Store it in a cool and dry place between 10°C and 20°C.
  • Charge it at least every two months.

Not following these steps could void the warranty.

Partial charging and charging cycle

A charging cycle is when you use the full Wh capacity of the battery, whether done all at once or with intermediate recharges. Every time you charge the battery is not a charging cycle.

Do not wait for the battery to fully discharge before recharging it. It is advised to frequently recharge your battery, to enhance its performance.

Avoid

  • Deep discharges with intensive use.
  • Regularly completely depleting the battery.
  • Storage above 30°C ambient temperature.
  • Parking the eBike in direct sunlight.
