Area 13 - Electric Bikes that are out of this world.

Battery Q & A | EP 107

Posted by on

Hello, everybody! Welcome back to another episode of the Area 13 Podcast. I remember to say it correctly, but we always cover all sorts of things about electric bikes in the podcast. That's entirely what the podcast is for. 

I decided to do something a little bit different today. Thank you if you're joining me on YouTube live, that means you can ask me questions and I'm going to answer them as we go. So once again, I am Kyle, The Owner of Area 13. 

This is the Area 13 Ebikes Podcast.

In today’s episode you’ll learn more about: 

  • Batteries and how to properly take care of your battery.
  • What are the different types of batteries that are used and why you should treat them differently.
  • What is the BMS and why is that important? 
  • Should you charge to 100%?
  • When should you discharge a battery?
  • How to join in on the LIVE Q & A
  • At what percentage should a battery be charged for long term storage?
  • How long do lithium batteries last?
  • Where are we at with the solar panel charging device and how that would work in practice. 
  • What other questions did viewers have that you’ll want to hear.
  • And so much more! 

Thank you for listening to the Area 13 Ebikes Podcast. If you're listening to this after the live, once again, I'm Kyle, The Owner of Area 13.

  • I have a rad runner e bike. I think it is a 2020 model year. the battery seems to be losing the length of time it can be used before needing recharging. I was thinking of buying another battery to carry along with me and exchanging it with the first battery instead of hooking them up with the item you sell to use them at the same time. what do you think ?

  • Why does my 21ah battery shut off at 47% but when I use the 14ah it goes all the way to 7%? on my Biktrix Juggernaut Ultra 1000 I bought from you.
