Every charge/discharge action slightly reduces the battery’s capacity. When the battery pack decreases to 60% of its original capacity, we classify the pack as having reached the end of its useful life, even though the pack can still function.
Typically, this point is reached when the pack goes through 500-800 full charge cycles. There are, however, ways to increase the number of cycles before the pack reaches the 60% level. This involves the following practices:
Some tips to achieve longer life cycle from your lithium battery pack:
- Avoid charging the battery when above 80% capacity.
- Avoid discharging the battery when below 20% capacity.
- Reduce the charge rate.
- Store the battery at 50% during long periods of inactivity.
- Avoid discharging above the pack's C-Rating.
Our 52V systems can perform these activities through the use of the onboard software and a special programmable charger. These techniques can help extend the battery life well beyond the average lifespan.
The voltage bar on the display is calibrated to the battery pack. It will not be affected by adjusting the low voltage limit.
