When should an electric bike be charged?

You can charge your electric bike between uses, so you can always put your electric bike on the charger. You don't have to wait to charge it until the battery is almost empty. However, it is important that you recharge an empty battery as soon as possible.

The battery is charged, now what?

When the battery is fully charged, you don't necessarily have to disconnect the charger from the battery. Your electric bike can stay on the charger. Van Raam's chargers are designed to switch off when the battery is full. Are you planning on not using the battery for a while? Make sure you store the battery in a dry and cool place.

Tips for charging your battery

  1. Charge your battery from time to time, even when you haven't used it for a while. Your battery slowly discharges when you are not using it. This can cause a deep discharge and lead to malfunction.

  2. Only use the Van Raam battery and charger supplied with your bike.

  3. Batteries cannot withstand high or extremely low temperatures. If your battery has become warm during a bike ride, wait to charge it until it cools down.
