Caring For Your SONDORS Battery

 

Your battery is indeed one of the most important aspects of your SONDORS, yet often battery care is overlooked.  Although SONDORS are engineered for durability on the streets, beaches and trails, your SONDORS requires the same level of care you would devote to any of your high-quality electronic devices.

 

STEP ONE: Connecting the charger to battery to power supply

• Ensure battery is powered “OFF” – check the battery’s rocker power switch to verify it is in the “OFF” position

• Check to make sure the charger is not plugged into the surge protector (interrupter) strip

• First, plug the charger into the battery

• Second, plug the charger into surge protector strip

• Third, plug the surge protector strip to the household power outlet

STEP TWO: LED Indicator

• The single LED on the charger will be green momentarily indicating power has been connected

• The LED will change from green to red indicating charging is in progress

• The LED will change from red back to green to indicate the charging cycle is

completed

STEP THREE: Charging is complete

• First, unplug the surge protector from the household power supply

• Second, unplug the charger from the surge protector strip

• Third, unplug the charger from the battery

When to Charge Your SONDORS Battery

• Charging when battery is at 70%+ discharge is optimum to help extend the life of the battery

• If the battery is not in use for an extended period of time, perform a maintenance charge on the battery, repeating the above steps, every 2-3 months

How to Store Your SONDORS Battery

• Store the battery in a cool, dry location until ready to ride

• Store the battery on its own – off of the charger and out of the bike

SONDORS Tip #1: The battery should always remain in the “OFF” position unless the bike is in operation

SONDORS Tip #2: Do NOT over-charge the battery. Charging cycles will vary depending upon usage. The majority of charging cycles take 2-3 hours, and should not exceed 6 hours to complete. Set an alarm to help you remember to check the battery. Do NOT leave battery plugged in overnight

SONDORS Tip #3: Do NOT expose the battery to fire, water or moisture. Do NOT dismantle the battery. Do NOT make physical alterations or crush the battery

These are some simple guidelines to follow when caring for your SONDORS battery which will help protect it from damage, boost longevity and keep you enjoying the ride on your SONDORS!
