We are lucky - a lot of companies have been hit with 83%.

MOT – For Safety of Electric Bikes Only

If it’s that time of year when many of us are retrieving our bikes from the garage or shed, and realising that they’re going to need some attention before being ridden again. Where a long winter of neglect, cold weather and damp conditions has played havoc with the cables, the tyres, chain, battery and charger.

Then it's time to arrange for your electric bike to have a full MOT by us:

enquiries@fakenhamelectricbikes.co.uk

We check to see if there are signs of rust & there are curious noises when you turn the crank.

The charge for a full MOT is only £75.00 in many cases including parts and VAT!!!

This can be carried out at our own workshop by our qualified engineers.

Not only will you know if your electric bike is safe to use on the public roads, also if your electric bike is economically worth repairing and if you are better off replacing with a new electric bike, saving you time and money, take a look at our offers on our web site.

About Batteries

A 10A battery should yield around 30 miles with some pedalling or 15 miles if you just use the throttle alone (not advised)

A 15A battery should yield around 45 to 60 miles with some pedalling and around 25 to 30 miles if you just use the throttle alone (not advised)

A 17A battery should yield around 50 to 80 miles with some pedalling and around 30 to 40 miles if you just use the throttle alone (not advised)

All modern Lithium batteries can last 2-3 years and can be recharged up to 800 times

The above figures are highly variable due to the following factors:

  • The terrain you’re cycling on
  • How much you pedal
  • The weight of the rider
  • Battery kept in best condition
  • Managing the power settings

Remember:

- The more you use your bike, the stronger is the battery.
- Charge it for 15 minutes evey month if you are not riding the bike.

Maintenance of batteries:
In a lithium-ion battery, Lithium ions move from the positive electrode to the negative electrode when charging and vice versa when you ride your bike. In theory such a mechanism should work forever, but in practice, your battery will age with time and repeated charging cycles. To get the best out of your battery, follow the recommendations below

- Use your battery regularly. Ride your bike as often as you can.
- Don't charge up after every short trips, wait for the battery to go down a bit, best time to charge is when the battery is half full.
- Grease the battery contacts and sliding rails if you have a rack battery.
- Avoid extreme temperatures. Your battery will work between 0oC and 60oC but it's best to keep it at room temperature, between 15oC and 25oC.
- Avoid shocks, very bumpy roads and pot holes.
- Avoid humidity.

Your battery contains a lot of electronic components besides the Lithium-ion cells, humidity will oxydize the copper on the circuit board like it would your copper pipes. Keep your battery dry. If you ride in the rain, give your battery a wipe when you come home.
If you cannot ride your bike in the winter months:
a) If your battery has an on/off switch, switch it off in winter months.
b) Every 2 months, switch it on and check the battery level.
If still full, give it 10 minutes top up charge.
If one LED has gone off, give it a 30 minutes top up charge.
