1. Charge in time every day
Even if the battery life you need is not long, it can be used for 2-3 days on a single charge, but it is still recommended that you charge it every day and keep the battery in a shallow cycle state, which will extend the battery life. Battery life. Battery life. Some early mobile phone users believe that they should wait until the battery is basically used up before recharging the battery. This view is wrong. The memory effect of lead-acid batteries is not so strong. Under normal circumstances, when the power supply is discharged, the battery life will be more affected. In most chargers, when the indicator light changes to indicate overflow, the battery power may be 97% to 99%. Although only 1% to 3% of battery power is insufficient, the impact on battery life is almost negligible, but it will also form an accumulation of insufficient charge. Therefore, after the battery is flooded with water to change the lamp, it is still possible to continue to float as much as possible, which is also conducive to inhibiting battery vulcanization. After the battery of the electric balance car is discharged, the vulcanization process begins. After 12 hours, significant vulcanization occurred. Charge in time to eliminate slight vulcanization. If the material is not added in time, these sulfide crystals will accumulate and gradually form coarse crystals. Generally, the charger does not have these coarse crystals, which will gradually reduce the battery capacity and shorten the battery life. Therefore, in addition to daily charging, you should also pay attention to charging as soon as possible after use, so that the battery is as full as possible.
2. Don't change the charger casually
The chargers of various electric balance scooter manufacturers generally have individual requirements. Do not change the charger at will when you are not sure. If the cruising range is relatively long, you have to equip multiple chargers for remote charging, use another charger during the day, and use the original charger at night. Canceling the speed limit of the controller can increase the speed of some cars, but in addition to reducing the safety of the car, it will also reduce the service life of the battery.
3. Protect the charger
There are instructions for protecting the charger in the general operating instructions. Many users do not have the habit of reading the manual, and often think of looking for the manual after a problem occurs. It is often too late, so it is necessary to read the instructions first. In order to reduce costs, current chargers are basically not designed for high vibration resistance, so chargers are generally not placed in the trunk and basket of electric bicycles. If you must move the charger, wrap the charger with foam to prevent vibration. After many chargers undergo vibration, their internal potentiometers will drift, causing the entire parameters to drift, leading to abnormal charging status. In addition, it should be noted that the charger should be ventilated when charging, otherwise it will not only affect the life of the charger, but also may cause thermal drift and affect the charging state. This will damage the battery. Therefore, it is very important to protect the charger.
4. Pay attention to the charging environment
The best ambient temperature for charging is 25°C. Nowadays, most chargers do not have an automatic control system that adapts to the ambient temperature, so most chargers are designed according to the ambient temperature of 25°C, so charging at 25°C is better. Otherwise, it is inevitable that there will be problems of undercharging in winter and overcharging in summer. When the ambient temperature is really 25°C, it is relatively low, so there will inevitably be the problem of overcharging in summer and undercharging in winter. Fortunately, most households nowadays have the conditions for indoor temperature adjustment. In this way, when charging, it is best to arrange the battery and charger in a ventilated and temperature-adjustable environment. It is particularly reminded that the battery is in winter, when the outdoor low temperature state enters a warm indoor, frost and condensation will appear on the surface of the battery. In order to prevent battery leakage caused by frost and condensation, the battery should be charged after the battery temperature rises to close to the indoor temperature and is dry.
5. Develop some good habits to save electricity
Try to use glide. When going downhill, try to take advantage of the power cut in advance and taxi. When you are about to encounter a traffic light, please enter the glide as early as possible to minimize braking. A friend told me that he would rather make an extra turn than brake. This makes sense. It is best to add riding assistance when starting, not only can increase the starting speed, but also reduce the loss of battery power and life.
6. Make full use of maintenance conditions
Many electric balance scooter dealers can provide battery inspection and repair services, and these services should be fully utilized. Some brands of electric balance scooter recommend overhauling the battery. For example, regular maintenance of the battery can reduce damage to the battery. Repairing the state of charge of the battery can alleviate the "battery backward" failure, which is easy for dealers with repair capabilities. For water loss, the water replenishment effect when the battery capacity is 70% is better than that when the battery capacity is 40%. Even some brands of products also propose that if the battery is not overhauled within the prescribed time, it is equivalent to giving up the battery warranty. Let consumers suffer losses that should not have occurred. Therefore, consumers should make full use of battery overhaul conditions to extend the service life of new batteries.
