The post-maintenance of the balance car plays a crucial role in the performance and life of the balance car. How to use the electric balance car battery correctly? The post-maintenance of the balance car is mainly aimed at the lithium battery. For the majority of consumers, how to use the battery correctly and safely has also become a required course.
Tips1 Don’t change the charger casually
Various electric balance car manufacturers generally have individual needs for chargers. Do not replace the charger at will when you are not sure. If the continuation mileage is required to be relatively long, multiple chargers must be equipped for off-site charging, using additional chargers during the day, and using the original chargers at night. Removing 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.
Tips2 Protect the charger
There are instructions on protecting the charger on the instruction manual, but many users do not have the habit of reading the instruction manual. In order to reduce costs, some merchants have equipped chargers without high vibration resistance design. After such chargers are vibrated, their internal potentiometers will drift, causing the entire parameters to drift, resulting in abnormal charging status. It is recommended that you do not usually put the charger in the trunk and basket of the electric bicycle. When it is necessary to move under special circumstances, the charger should also be packed in foam to prevent vibration and bumps. In addition, keep the charger ventilated during charging, otherwise it will not only affect the life of the charger, but also may cause thermal drift to affect the charging state and cause damage to the battery. Therefore, we usually need to do a good job of charger protection.
Tips3 recharge the battery every day
Even if your continuation capability is not long, you can use it for 2 to 3 days on a single charge, but it is recommended that you charge it every day, which will keep the battery in a shallow cycle and prolong the battery life.
Tips4 Recharge in time
After the battery of the electric balance car is discharged, the vulcanization process begins, and obvious vulcanization occurs after 12 hours. Timely charging can remove minor vulcanization. If not charged in time, these vulcanized crystals will accumulate and gradually form coarse crystals. General chargers are powerless to these coarse crystals, and will gradually form a decrease in battery capacity and shorten the battery life. battery life. Therefore, in addition to charging every day, you should also pay attention to charging as soon as possible after use to keep the battery in a full state as much as possible.
Tips5 Regular deep discharge
A regular deep discharge of the battery can also help to “activate” the battery, which can slightly increase the battery’s capacity. The general approach is to perform a full discharge of the battery on a regular basis. The way to fully discharge is to ride to the first undervoltage protection under normal load conditions on a flat road. After fully discharging, fully charge the battery and you will feel that the battery capacity has increased.
Tips6 to develop a good habit of saving electricity
Take advantage of gliding as much as possible. If you enter the taxi ahead of time when you are about to encounter a traffic light, minimize braking. A friend told me that he would rather turn the bay one more time and reduce the braking time, which makes sense. When starting, it is best to add riding assistance, which can not only improve the starting speed, but also reduce the loss of battery power. and lifespan damage.
Tips7 Pay attention to the charging environment
The best ambient temperature for charging is 25°C. At present, 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, the problem of undercharging in winter and overcharging in summer will inevitably occur. Fortunately, most families now have indoor temperature regulation conditions. When charging, it is best to arrange the battery and charger in a ventilated and temperature-regulated environment. A special reminder is that when the battery is in the northern winter and enters a warm room from a low temperature outside, frost and condensation will appear on the surface of the battery. In order to avoid battery leakage caused by frost and condensation, the battery should be charged after the battery temperature rises to close to the room temperature and is dry.
Tips8 make full use of maintenance conditions
Regular manufacturers of electric self-balancing scooters provide battery overhaul and maintenance services, and these services should be fully utilized. Failure to overhaul within the specified time is equivalent to giving up the warranty period of the battery, which is unwilling to be seen by both merchants and consumers. Regular maintenance of the battery can reduce damage to the battery. Repairing the state of charge of the battery can alleviate the failure of “battery lag”. For water loss, replenishing water when the battery capacity is 70% is better than replenishing water when the battery capacity is 40%. It can be seen that battery maintenance is very important, and consumers should make full use of favorable conditions to extend the service life of the battery.
