How Long Can the HIMIWAY Electric Bike Battery Last?

Himiway uses a Samsung 48V 17.5AH lithium-ion battery, which the standard American standard is 54.6V 2A charger, the charging time is about 6-9 hours, so how long can this battery be used?

Himiway Electric Bike Battery

Himiway's electric bikes are equipped with high-quality Samsung lithium-ion batteries, and their rated charging capacity is 900 full charge cycles before they need to be replaced.

The first fully charged cycle is from completely discharged to fully charged. If the battery is half discharged and recharged, it is only half of a charging cycle. You can discharge the battery by 50% and then charge it back to 100% twice to equal a full charge cycle. If you only discharge the battery halfway before normal charging, the battery will last twice as long!

That is to say, if you use our electric bicycle every day, each time for a complete charging cycle, then your battery life can reach at least 900 days or 2.5 years. In consideration of battery loss, our battery can be used for at least 2.5-7 years. At the same time, our battery warranty policy is for two years. Please refer to our "Warranty Policy". The battery life will depend on several factors, including how often the owner discharges and recharges the battery. A very heavy user, once a day, runs out and recharges a fully charged battery 7 days a week, then the service life of the battery is about 2.5 years. Temporary users' batteries can be used for 3 to 6 years. Overall, we usually see average battery life of about 5 years.

The phrase "lithium batteries are not worn out but charged incorrectly" makes sense. Proper charging habits and regular maintenance can greatly increase the life of the battery. Frequent overcharging and discharging will greatly damage the battery and shorten its life. It is reasonable to charge once when the battery discharges 50% -70%. And when the charger turns green while charging, it is best to charge for about 1 hour.

It is also very important to use the original charger. Standard chargers and batteries will greatly increase battery life. It is not recommended to use non-original chargers, otherwise, the battery life may be reduced and also result in dangerous situations.
