Electric bicycles are an increasingly common sight in cities throughout the world. Whether it’s some other portable electronic device or your electric bike, being alert and aware of how to treat the battery and what to do if there is a problem is advisable.
Once you have bought your e-bike, it is crucial that you take the necessary steps to ensure that it continues to run at its optimum level. In recent years I’ve heard about a few incidents of electric bike shops burning down due to damaged batteries and chargers. These shops often perform maintenance/repair work on ebikes that not only increases the cost of the bicycle but also endanger the safety of their own.
The very first thing I want to say is this: Did you know that battery powered hand tools, laptops and even cell phones have burned down a number of homes and businesses? And yet to most people these products seem completely safe, even after being dropped or damaged they hold up well and never have an issue. While it is true that lithium batteries, commonly used in ebikes today, can catch fire… it is VERY rare for them to do so, for several reasons.
