In order to maximize your range and reduce your maintenance costs, charging your electric motorcycle battery is an important step. Lithium-ion batteries are the most common type of battery for e-bikes, and each pack contains one or more lithium ions. They are also relatively safe to charge, though you should always follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer. The most important thing to remember when charging an electric motorcycle battery is to always connect the charger to the battery pack before plugging it into an electrical outlet. Doing so will prevent electrical arcing, which can burn wood or ignite other things in your home.
Some vendors bend the truth to sell you a battery with the highest range, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try. Just remember to ask the right questions and purchase a battery from a vendor who will give you a range estimate based on your bike, weight, and input. You might also be confused about the differences between Ah and Wh. The better term is Watt Hours, since it’s the power output per unit of time that determines how far your motorcycle battery will travel on a full charge.
If you’re shopping for a new motorcycle battery, don’t buy the first one you see. Some vendors over-promise their range, so beware of that. Instead, choose a vendor that gives you an estimate based on your weight, the bike, and the input. Then, you can decide whether to purchase a battery with an ‘Ah’ or a ‘Wh’ rating. In addition to Ah and Wh, make sure to consider the Watt Hours of the battery. These numbers are important for determining how far an electric bike can go on a full charge.
