    << How often to Recharge >>

    I was told by the Currie Customer Service (Chatsworth, California) that “To maximize the life of a Sealed Lead Acid (SLA) battery, you should drain it completed for three times first, then recharge it overnight after each subsequent ride”. It was a bad advice; it made my battery die after first drain.

    Then I bought a new battery from Amazon. Now I follow the instruction from manufacture — Charge it fully before first use; then recharge it to full after each subsequent ride (regardless long or short) whenever possible. It also cautioned, if recharging overnight, always unplug in the morning, never leaving the battery in overcharging state for more than 24 hours. This will shorten the life of the battery.

    An environmental website regarding SLA batteries for eBikes has indicated that we had better not consume more than 50% of battery’s capacity before recharging; this will greatly extend its life. Conversely, using 80, 90 and 100% of the capacity will greatly reduce the number of allowable charge cycles.

    << Connection Sequence >>

    I was also reminded by an authorized dealer of eZip bikes in Pasadena, CA that when recharging, always connect charger cable to the battery first; then plug charger to the wall outlet. After recharging, always unplug first, then disconnect charger from battery. This sequence will avoid unexpected damage to the charger and the battery.

    One of my concerns in riding an eBike was “getting caught” away from home with a dead battery. Further, knowing the distances offered as expected range on the eBikes assumed someone slightly less voluminous than me – that’s a mild mannered way of stating I am somewhat rotund. So, it just made sense to have a second battery. This allows me to travel 1 battery’s distance away from home, knowing I have a like amount of reserve energy to make it back. Fact is, since using the eBike, I’ve rarely had to use the second battery to make it home. No surprises with the eBike or the batteries – both work well, and I’m using the older SLA type of battery.m

  3. The unit is sturdy enough to accommodate two riders
    at once. In 2004, only 40,000 electric two wheelers were sold in China and
    by 2010, the count has surpassed the 100 million mark.
