The Best Temperature to Charge an Electric Bike

The Best Temperature to Charge an Electric Bike

You may have heard or read about the dangers of e-bicycle batteries. “Don’t charge your battery if it’s frozen!” “Don’t heat up a cold battery using a heater” “Keep it out of direct sunlight”. Those warnings are true and more.

Here, we will explore the ins and outs of electric bike batteries and how hot and cold temperatures can affect performance and battery life. What temperature warnings you should take into account when charging your battery and using your electric bike.

It doesn't like to get too hot or too cold. It likes temperatures around the “just right” range.

This includes charging temperatures between 41°F and 113°F (5°C to 45°C), riding temperatures around 68°F (20°C), and storage temperatures between 41°F (5°C) and 68°F (20°C).

When these temperature ranges are exceeded in extreme cases, the battery chemistry begins to be affected in different ways, from reduced capacity to increased risk of permanent internal damage or fire.
