The service life of an e-scooter battery is usually between 500 and 1000 charging cycles. Don't worry, depending on how you use it, your battery will still be functional afterwards, simply with less power than before. In this article we give you tips on how to extend the life of your electric scooter battery. 

Pay attention to the correct storage

It is best to store a lithium-ion battery neither too full nor too empty. Ideally, you store such a battery charged between 10% and 90%. If you aren't using your e-scooter for a long time, for example during the colder winter months, you should still recharge it from time to time. This helps to avoid a deep discharge which can harm the battery. It is also important that you don't store the battery below 41°F. Ideally, the temperature at the storage location is between 50°F and 59°F,
but never over 86°F as exposure to heat can damage the battery as well.  

Use a gentle charging technique

It's better for the battery if you don't charge it to 100%. At the same time, you can extend its service life by making sure that it never becomes completely empty (aka "deep discharge"). Wait about 15 minutes after riding so that the battery can cool down a bit and only afterwards recharge your battery.

Don't go full throttle too often

In the long term, it is advantageous for the life of your battery if you don't ride at maximum speed too often. 

ALWAYS use the dedicated charger

The chargers supplied by the VMAX have the perfectly matched specifications and are tailored to your battery. The battery will neither be undercharged nor overcharged. Avoid using a third-party charger at all costs. This can even damage or shorten the life of the battery. Please reach out to our support >>> if you need support in selecting the right charger. 

Avoid temperatures

Your battery is put under excessive strain when the outside temperatures are very high so we advise to avoid riding during extremely high temperatures. 

Conclusion

As described in this article, factors such as storage, riding style, charging habits and temperature affect the life of your e-scooter battery. Therefore, make sure to follow these instructions to achieve long-term battery power with your e-scooter.
