What Is The Best Way To Store My E-Bike In Winter?
Many e-bike riders take a break from their e-bike during the cold winter months. JOBOBIKE has a few tips for you to ensure that your e-bike is well protected and ready for use again in spring.
The proper storage location for your e-bike is crucial to protect it from the weather and potential damage. Ideally, it should be stored in a dry, well-ventilated space such as a shed, garage, or storage room. Such a storage space protects against moisture, rust, and other damages that can occur due to cold and wet weather. Avoid storing it in places where your e-bike is directly exposed to the elements.
The E-Bike battery is one of the most important components of an e-bike and must be properly handled during storage. It is recommended to remove the battery from the e-bike as cold temperatures can affect its performance. Store the battery in a cool, dry place, but not near flammable materials. A constant temperature between 0 and 20 degrees Celsius is ideal for battery storage. Regularly check the battery's charge level during storage and recharge if necessary.
Battery Charge Level
Before removing the battery for storage, it is advisable to charge it to about 50%. A full or empty charge can lead to faster capacity deterioration. The reason is that the battery is less susceptible to damage from deep discharge or overcharge in a partially discharged state. When charging the battery, make sure it is fully cooled before storage.
Cleaning and Maintenance
Before storing, it is important to thoroughly clean your e-bike to remove dirt, dust, and moisture. Use a mild cleaner and water to clean the frame, wheels, chain, and other components, taking care to keep the battery and motor area dry. After cleaning, treat the chain and other moving parts with lubricant to prevent corrosion and extend the life of the components. Check the tire pressure and ensure it is set according to the manufacturer's specifications. Check the brakes for wear and ensure they are functioning properly. If necessary, replace worn brake pads.
The winter storage of your e-bike requires some preparations to protect it optimally and extend its lifespan. Store your e-bike in a dry and well-ventilated place, remove the battery and store it separately, monitor the battery's charge level, and clean your e-bike thoroughly before storage. By following these tips, you can ensure that your e-bike is well-protected and ready for the next spring.
