Frequent braking easily damages the battery? Electric car maintenance skills
Electric vehicles have become a frequently used means of transportation in people's lives, but many consumers do not understand the skills and maintenance methods of electric vehicles after purchasing them. Problems began to appear soon after the use of electric vehicles, and it was too late to pay attention.
1. Frequent braking
Frequent braking will inevitably be accompanied by frequent start-ups, which will cause frequent high-current discharge of the battery, and power failure will have a negative impact on its life. Pay attention to safety when driving, drive at an appropriate speed, and try to avoid frequent braking.
2. Tire pressure, smoothness of rim rotation
"Tire pressure" is actually what we usually say about insufficient air. Although these two factors seem to be irrelevant, the tires are not fully inflated, which will increase the resistance of the electric car to move forward, which will force the motor to exert greater force and consume limited electricity in vain. Before each ride, check whether the tires are fully inflated and whether the rim rotates smoothly. A small test can make your car easier to operate.
3. Use in different road conditions
Electric bicycles are not suitable for driving on poor or steep roads. If there are more uphills on the way to work, we will find that the mileage on a charge will be much less than on a flat highway. When starting, going uphill, carrying a heavy load or driving against the wind, please use the manpower to assist the riding. This will not only guarantee your battery and motor, but also extend the service life.
4. Use in rainy weather
Avoid excessive sun and rain. The driving speed in winter should be reduced appropriately. The braking distance should be increased to prevent sideslip and U-turn, so as not to endanger personal safety. Although the electric bicycle has good waterproof performance, when passing through water pools, stagnant water, etc., the height of the wading should not be higher than the hub to prevent water from entering the motor and causing damage; do not wash with high-pressure water jets to prevent electronic components and wiring from being flooded Cause damage.
If a flooding accident occurs accidentally, please turn off the power immediately, remove the battery, and go to the store for inspection as soon as possible. Before overhauling, never use electric drive again.
Be a "little nurse" for electric vehicles
In addition to normal use, daily maintenance is also very important. Good daily maintenance will help extend the service life of electric vehicles. For example: often carry out some surface dust removal and cleaning work, regularly add lubricants to the front and rear axles, chains, flywheels and brake cables, etc., and regularly ask professional repair centers for maintenance.
