Cold Weather Ebike Battery Care

If you are going to be riding your ebike over the winter then there is no need to worry about your battery. Here are some cold weather ebike battery care tips.

Be aware that very cold (or hot) conditions can affect your battery range. Bosch say range can be reduced by up to 30% if used in temperatures below 0 degrees. In the very cold your battery has to work harder so can also decrease its overall lifespan.

When you’ve finished your ride on a cold day you should bring your battery up to room temperature before recharging.

If you aren’t going to be riding then there are some simple steps to keep your battery healthy.

Batteries can cope with low temperatures but the cells prefer to be kept at room temperature between 15-20 degrees. If you keep your Ebike in a shed or garage we advise you take your battery inside.

When not using your battery for a while you want to keep it partially charged. For a Bosch battery we advise leaving it at around 60% which is 3 LEDs on the indicator.

Every few months check the battery and recharge up to 60% if needed. If a battery is left in storage totally flat then damage can be caused to the cells.

A typical E-Bike battery costs between £450 and £700 and is one of the most expensive components on an electric bike. It is definitely worth looking after them.
