Cleaning

Always remove the battery from the bike before cleaning it. Do not get any electrical components wet and do not allow any direct water spray on them.

Occasionally clean and lightly lubricate the plug pins.

Winter storage

Store battery at temperatures between 0 and 20 degrees. If a battery is completely empty this will cause more wear. The ideal charge status for storing the battery is between 30 and 60%.

Storage (general)

Temperatures below -10 degrees and higher than 60 degrees should be avoided.

Winter time

In the winter (particularly when it is below 0 degrees) connect the battery that has been stored at room temperature onto the electric bike shortly before departure. If cycling regularly in the cold it is recommended to use thermal protective covers.

Transport

When transporting the bike, always remove the battery from the bike and transport this safely.

Maintenance

The dealer can check the condition of the battery using a diagnosis device.
