We strive to offer batteries produced by South Korean brand-name manufacturers like LG or Samsung. We also accept batteries from reputable Chinese manufacturers if they have been proven over time and have undergone safety testing.
Lithium-ion batteries in the sizes we sell typically have a lifespan of 400-700 charging cycles. Due to the chemistry inherent in the batteries, it is normal that capacity and resultant range of the battery will reduce throughout its lifetime.
There is a lot of technical information on how to prolong battery lifespan - for all the details, have a look at this article.
The most straight forward tips are as follows:
- batteries like it cool - do not let it get too hot while in use, while charging, or during storage
- charge slow if possible. The smaller the battery pack (in Ah) the slower it likes to be charged. If you are concerned about battery life, use the normal 2A chargers coming with our electric scooters.
- don't overcharge - our chargers will turn off automatically when the battery is full but you should still remove them after 24h max.
Li-ion batteries will slowly discharge over time. Don't let your battery run completely empty. If you are storing your scooter for a long time, we recommend checking the charge every 3 months and re-charging if necessary.
Please include battery classification in owners manual, good to show anyone with concerns. UL listing made clear would be really helpful. Maybe something on the scooter itself needed. I had to email and go hunting for this information when it should be clearly stated.
