Electric skateboards as an eco-friendly transportation, they are a great way to daily commuting and have fun. It is crucial to properly maintain the battery if you want to keep your electric skateboard rolling. It is key to ensuring the performance and extending the lifespan of electric skateboards. In this blog, we will share some guides on how to maintain the battery.
• Charge Smart, Charge Right
Most electric skateboards are equipped with lithium-ion batteries, overcharging or over-draining the battery would shorten the battery lifespan. So you should charge the battery regularly but not overcharged. Once the battery is fully charged, remove the plug in the battery, and don't leave it in the battery for extended periods, as this is possibly bad for the battery's lifespan and would put unnecessary power on the battery. Additionally, please always use the charger provided by the manufacturer to ensure compatibility and prevent damage to the battery.
• Store Safely and Properly
Especially during the winter, if you are not planning to ride the electric skateboard, you should store it in a cool and dry environment, away from direct sunlight and extreme temperatures. Besides, we recommend maintaining the power level of the battery between 40-60% when storing it for an extended duration. Regularly check the battery's charge during storage to ensure it doesn't drop too low or exceed the recommended level we mentioned. Avoid exposing your electric skateboard to extreme temperatures, as both extreme heat and cold can negatively affect battery performance.
• Regularly Check and Clean
Regularly check the battery and its connections for any signs of damage or wear. If you notice there are any loose connections or visible damage to the battery, please stop to use it to prevent further issues.
• Avoid Rain and Water
Don't ride the electric skateboard on a heavy rainy day. The rain or water would damage the battery and cause a short circuit if you didn't dry the electric components completely before riding. Even though some electric skateboards are advertised as waterproof in the market, to prevent any unexpected accident from occurring, that would be better if you don't ride it on a rainy day. If the board is still wet from the rain accidentally, please completely dry the electric skateboard and other electric components promptly. When cleaning the battery, use a soft, dry cloth to wipe away any dirt or grime gently.
In conclusion, the battery is the life force of your electric skateboard, and with proper care and maintenance, you can extend its lifespan and keep your rides smooth and enjoyable.
