I got to spend some time with the President of Raleigh Electric discussing ebikes recently and he spoke to me about battery care. I thought the points he made were super interesting… specifically avoiding hot environments, charging regularly and the way that batteries are setup with a battery management system… that can all have an impact on how reliable and long lasting the pack will be. If you’ve got an electric bicycle and want to maximize the life of the battery follow these important tips from an expert. Also, be careful with your battery because there have been fires due to batteries (even with the small cell phone batteries as we saw with the Samsun Note S6 I believe).
