If you’re considering joining the ebike community but are wondering about the specifics of battery charging, look no further. Our team has compiled this handy list of ebike battery charging tips so that you can make an informed decision.
One of the most remarkable features of our bikes is that our batteries are removable. This removability makes ebike charging convenient and easy: all you need to bring to the wall socket is the battery.
Charging an Electric Bike Battery: First-Time Tips
The first time you charge your ebike’s battery is a special case. You’ll need to follow different steps than you would otherwise to ensure you get the most out of your purchase.
Since all Super73 electric bikes feature lithium-ion batteries, every bike’s first-time charging procedure is identical. Those lithium-ion cells require conditioning on their very first charge, so it’s important that you leave your battery on the charger for six to eight hours the very first time.
After that, no worries. Your battery can accept partial charges with no problems after its initial, first-charge conditioning. That means, if you’re in a hurry and need to get moving, as long as you’ve taken care to follow this procedure the first time, you’re good.
How Do I Know When My Ebike Battery Is Charged?
We made it as simple as red and green. When the battery is charging, the charge indicator light is red, and when it’s charged, the charge indicator light is green. Once it’s green, grab it and go.
How Long Do Ebike Batteries Last?
Your Super73 electric bike battery will have a long and productive life provided you look after it properly. Since your battery likes normal room temperature the same way you do, it’s best to use it and charge it at around 20 degrees °C. Treat it as you treat yourself — if you’re feeling comfortable, it’s doing fine too. We recommend that you don’t use or charge it at temperatures above 36 degrees °C or below freezing.
When it comes to range, expectations vary by model. Every Super73 bike should give you about 40 km of range (except the Super73-ZG), but the actual range depends on:
How you ride
How much you weigh
How flat the terrain is
How fast you’re riding
If you’re using ECO Pedal Assist mode, you could extend that range to 80 or even 120 km, depending on the model and other variables.
How Much Does It Cost to Charge an Ebike?
Costs will vary depending on the electricity market rates by country, but let’s put it this way: it can’t be much, and besides, riding your Super73 ebike on a beautiful day is a lot more fun and liberating than getting around in a car.
Battery Dos And Don’ts
Like any cutting-edge technology, your battery will work long and hard if you’re careful about how you use it. There are certain things you don’t want to do:
Don’t use a damaged battery
Don’t use a battery that has been submerged in liquid
Don’t charge a battery longer than 48 hours
Don’t store your battery in a fully-discharged state longer than 24 hours
Don’t expose your battery to extreme heat, sunlight, or electrical shock
Don’t ever ship your battery, as this is illegal without federally-mandated labeling
Don’t dispose of your battery in the trash or even in conventional recycling
Lithium-ion batteries are super high-tech, but they are also technically hazardous materials when it comes to proper disposal and shipping. It’s essential to observe all laws and regulations about how to handle them when they’re spent.
To get the most out of your Super73’s battery, definitely do:
Try to recharge your battery at the end of each ride for longevity
Charge or use your battery at least every 90 days
Charge at room temperature
Store your battery somewhere above freezing and below about 37 degrees °C
Recycle properly with authorized providers
By following these simple steps, you can enjoy your Super73 ebike for years to come.
