The are certain steps you can take to extend the maximum life of your battery pack, including the following:
- When not riding, keep your batteries at room temperature (60 - 80 degrees Fahrenheit).
- Optimize for partial discharges instead of full discharges. Charging your battery back up after it has reached 20 - 30% capacity is generally better than letting it go all the way to 0% before recharging.
- If you are planning on not using your battery for longer than a month, store it at a ~50% charge. Every 2-3 months thereafter, plug in your battery to ensure that it is maintained at this level and is not completely discharged.
