Please check the battery before every time you’re riding the bike. With each charging cycle, the bike should be able to reach around 35 - 100 miles according to many aspects including the types of the electric bike and road condition. Make sure not to charge your battery under or exceed the standard voltage range marked on the charger. This will not only damage your battery but also can be a threat to your own safety. Too low voltage could cause you too long to charge the battery and too high voltage could melt down the fuse even burn out the battery or even your properties.
