Mistake 1: High temperature exposure charging

The hot climate will not only cause heat stroke, but also heat stroke in electric vehicles. In the hot summer, if the electric vehicle is charged in the sun, the probability of battery scrap will be very high, and it is very easy to cause fire.

The correct approach: try to choose to charge in a dry, ventilated, and no direct sunlight environment to avoid high temperature or humidity.

Mistake 2: Charging immediately after driving

Because of the lack of maintenance knowledge, many users charge the battery immediately after it is used up during use, so that it can be used again. This is very dangerous. The temperature of an electric vehicle is very high after driving in summer. At this time, if it is directly charged, the temperature of the battery will continue to increase, even exceeding the critical point, and eventually spontaneous combustion.

Correct approach: It is recommended to stop the electric vehicle for one to two hours after driving, and then charge it after the battery cools down.

Mistake 3: Overcharging

In summer, many electric vehicle users often charge overnight for convenience. The charging time often exceeds 12 hours, and sometimes they even forget to cut off the power and charge for more than 20 hours. This will inevitably cause great damage to the battery. Repeated charging for a long time can easily cause the battery to deform due to overcharging.

Correct approach: For general electric vehicles, the best charging time in summer is 6-8 hours.

Mistake 4: The battery is over discharged

After the battery is discharged to the termination voltage, continuing to discharge is called overdischarge. When riding, users of electric vehicles should pay attention not to over-discharge the battery. Over-discharge can easily cause serious battery loss, which will greatly shorten its service life.

Correct method: When using the battery, avoid deep discharge as much as possible, and do shallow discharge and frequent charging. Generally, it is best to charge once when the battery discharge depth is 50%.


Mistake 5: Mixing chargers

Different batteries are matched with different chargers. Mixed use will cause short circuit or insufficient charging of the battery. Especially in the hot summer, using the charger indiscriminately will be more harmful to the battery and easily cause fire.

Correct way: You should use the original charger to charge the electric scooter. Do not put the charger on the scooter when charging, and it is forbidden to cover it and keep the air circulating.

Mistake 6: Reverse the order of plugging and unplugging

Reversing the sequence of plugging and unplugging will cause the battery voltage to be unstable, which will cause certain damage to the battery for a long time and shorten its service life.

Correct way: When charging, you should pull out the plug correctly. When charging, first plug in the scooter plug and then connect to the power source. When it is finished, first disconnect the power source and then unplug the scooter plug to ensure battery voltage stability.

Mistake 7: Carry the charger with the scooter

Some electric scooter users like to carry the charger with the scooter for the convenience of charging. Everyone knows that the electronic components on the charger main board are easily unsoldered due to long-term turbulence, resulting in poor contact, unstable current during charging and failure of the protection function, resulting in battery damage.

Correct approach: The charger should be stored in a fixed place.

The charging method determines the battery life to a large extent. Generally speaking, the correct charging method can make the battery last for at least 1 year. Charging Man reminds everyone that the summer weather is hot, for the battery and for the safety of your life, you must pay attention to the charging details and don't charge it randomly!

When it comes to batteries, everyone naturally thinks of battery life. The battery life of electric vehicles has always been one of the main topics of concern to electric vehicle users. Breaking through the limitations of traditional electric vehicle charging, a new model for electric vehicle battery life has emerged on the market, replacing "charging" with "replacement". Electric vehicle users no longer have to worry about short battery life and poor battery life. The emergence of the power station mode will greatly solve the problem of charging pain points for electric vehicle users and become the mainstream trend of electric vehicle battery life in the future.
