Always charge your Li-ion battery between 30% and 85% of its full charge capacity for maximum battery longevity. It is suitable for all electronic devices and has been shown to increase battery life.

Avoid charging your battery too much, this includes not letting it discharge too quickly and not charging it with a fast charger, as both increases the risk of your battery losing strength quickly. If you are a professional scooterist, you should use the right charging technique. Make sure the battery temperatures are constant between 32F and 113F.
