Bosch e-bike battery wintering
Bosch e-bike battery
If you own a bosch e-bike system, it is very important for you follow customer instruction in order to optimize battery capacity. Battery life is mainly driven by how long you use your system, but also how you use it. You have to know that lithium-ion battery get older when they are not used.
That is why it is absolutly required to make a specific winterning if you plan not to use it for a long time.
Limiting life factors
- Ecessive use (load and unload made to fast)
- Stroring at a temperature higher that 30°C
- Storage loaded or unloaded at a temperature lower than 0°C
- Stored at direct sun exposition (parking for exemple)
Improve battery life factors
- Reasonnable usage
- Storage at a temperature between 0°C and 20°C
- Load between 30% and 60% of maximum load.
- Parking far from direct sun exposure.
So even if some battery life factors a common sens, some are more difficult to optimize without any specific tools. That is why we propose to you a specific wintering package that will:
- Make a complet diagnostic of your battery
- Make a preparation for storing
In case of error, test result is directly sent to Bosch customer support.
Then we optimize Bosch battery in order to allow a long time storage that will minimize capacity loss.
Thus, we check with our specific bosch battery tool if you battery use is compliant with normal product life, which is function of:
- Cycle quantity done since the purchase
- Age of the battery
Storage status during winter
As soon as your battery is loaded compliantly with customer instruction, you just have to store it in a dry area between 0°C and 20°C. Our advice is to store the battery out bike connector, in order to protect connectors.
Back to standard use
To use agin your bosch battery, you just have to fully load it, as for standard use.
