How to take care of your battery

Similar to chain maintenance, these maintenance tips are part of the regular maintenance of your e-bike and increase the life of your battery.

We made a video with tips & information about how to take care of your battery and how to spot normal battery behaviour:

Here are some of these tips in writing:

  • If you do not use your Ampler e-bike regularly, you have to charge the battery every 5 to 6 weeks, for Generation 2 Bikes, every 4 weeks
  • The battery prefers to be stored at a capacity of 40% - 80%.
  • Store it in a dry place, especially in winter. This does not have to be a specially heated room, but we recommend that you do not store it in places with a temperature below 0° C. Direct sunlight should also be avoided.
  • Put your Generation 2 bike into sleep mode via the app when you are not using it – this way, the GSM/GPS module will stop sending data and the bike will stop self-discharging. Of course, you should only do this when your bike is in a safe place, as it disables the location services.
  • The charging process should always take place in a dry and not too cold environment, but always above at least 0° C. The charger should ideally be stored in your living area.
  • It is advisable to give your Ampler e-bike some time to warm up after a ride in the cold before charging the battery.
  • By the way: The battery and motor power cannot fully develop in the cold. So don't worry about a shorter range on cold winter days, this is due to the cold and is common with lithium-ion batteries. In summer, your Ampler e-bike will regain its full performance.
