Electric bicycles are a new type of bicycles, which are similar in use to bicycles, but also very different. Today i have compiled a list of "Top Ten Best Ways for the Correct Use and Maintenance of Electric Bicycles" for everyone!
1. Human-electricity linkage saves power and worry.
To take advantage of the multi-function advantages of electric bicycles, the most ideal method is to assist the car to move, electricity to assist the movement, and the linkage of manpower and electricity, which saves both labor and electricity.
2. Ride with pedals first.
Electric bicycles with zero-start function, due to the large current when starting at rest, more energy consumption, and easy damage to the battery, you should ride with pedals first, then electric, and then accelerate at a certain speed. Avoid excessive battery current. Discharge, increase the mileage on a single charge, and help extend battery life.
3. Fully charge.
To charge the battery, you must use the special charger provided with the car. Insert the input plug into the AC socket and the output plug into the battery box. Insert the battery box first and then connect to the AC power. It should not be misplaced. It usually takes 3 to 8 hours to fully charge, one or two more. Hours are better for the battery (but be careful not to overcharge endlessly).
4. Pay attention to return to position after acceleration.
Sometimes the acceleration handle of an electric bicycle cannot be fully returned. This may seem unimportant, but it is very easy to be dangerous when accelerating or decelerating twice. In addition, when the electric vehicle brakes, the power of the motor will be cut off, but when the brake is released, if the acceleration handle is still in the accelerating position at this time, the motor will immediately get current to move forward, which is not conducive to safety.
5. Pay attention to daily security checks.
Do the following maintenance checks before each use of the electric bicycle: 1) Whether the tire pressure is sufficient, which can reduce the friction between the tire and the road; 2) Whether the steering of the handlebar is reliable, and whether the brake is flexible and effective, ensure driving safety; 3) Battery Whether the socket of the box, the plug of the charger is loose, whether the battery box is locked and whether the new button of the light is effective, make sure that the circuit is unblocked.
6. Do not ride hard.
Electric bicycles are not suitable for driving on uneven or steep roads. If you encounter such roads, please drive slowly or get off the bike. At the same time, the standard load of electric bicycles is 80 kg, so when you use electric bicycles daily, avoid carrying heavy objects. When carrying heavy loads, use pedal assistance.
7.more pedals in winter.
When riding in winter, please try to use the pedaling method as the main riding force, which will not only allow your body to be exercised, but also help prolong the service life of the battery. (Because the low temperature reduces the capacity of the battery pack, if the depth of discharge increases, the continuous mileage will be shortened).
8. Avoid rain.
Although the electric bicycle has good rainproof performance, please avoid direct sunlight and rain to prevent the body or rotating parts from rusting. When using in the rainy season or passing through puddles or stagnant water, the water level should not be higher than the center line of the axle to prevent the motor Losses caused by water ingress.
9. Take care of the battery.
The life span of lead-acid batteries used in electric bicycles has a lot to do with the daily maintenance of the batteries. Generally speaking, pay attention to the following points:
1) The lower the depth of discharge of the battery (the shorter the distance) each time the battery is used, the longer the battery's service life, and the good habit of charging at the time of use should be developed at ordinary times, and the battery should always be kept in a state of full charge.
2) When the battery needs to be stored for a long time, it must be charged first and recharged regularly, usually once a month.
3) High-current discharge will damage the battery to a certain extent, so use pedals to help when starting, uphill, loading, and headwind.
4) When charging, use the matching charger and place it in a cool and ventilated place to avoid high temperature and humidity. Never let water enter the charger to prevent electric shock.
10. Ensure that your feet can touch the ground
Finally, we remind you one more point: When using or buying an electric bicycle, you must pay attention to the fact that your feet can touch the ground. Especially for mothers with babies, when riding electric bikes, they must ensure that the seat height is such that the rider's feet can reach the ground. In this way, personal safety can be guaranteed in special circumstances.
