How often does my battery need to be replaced?

Our Samsung™ and LG™ batteries will last between 800 to 1000 charge cycles. This equates to around 50,000 km total per battery, but on condition that good practices are followed :

- Do not allow the battery to discharge completely (automatic cut-off level);

- Never overcharge the battery (with a maximum of 4 and 6 hours of charge);

- Use only the charger provided by Ride Bike Style to recharge your battery;

- First plug in the socket of your electric bike and then the wall socket of your charger.

 

How to recharge the battery and how long does it take?

RIDE BIKE STYLE electric bikes are supplied with their own Lithium-Ion charger, this charger plugs into any 110V household outlet and then connects to your charging port located under the tank or on the battery.

It takes about 4-6 hours to fully charge the battery.

Only the charger provided with the purchase of your bicycle is appropriate for your bicycle. Do not use another charger, as this may damage your battery and reduce its capacity.

To ensure maximum lifespan, be sure to follow the following guidelines:

- Do not allow the battery to discharge completely (automatic cut-off level);

- Never overcharge the battery (with a maximum of 4 and 6 hours of charge);

How do I take care of my battery for long periods without use?

  • Do not allow the battery to discharge completely: keep the battery between 30% and 70% of its capacity.
  • Never charge the battery up to 100%.
