Is it the battery quality problem if the battery has serious overdischarge?

Why does the electric motorcycle have only half power after it has been idle for a month at home? Is it caused by improper use? Or is the battery quality 's problem? 

Normally the electric motorcycle battery will automatically discharge 1% to 2% every day, if leaving unused for a long time, it will discharge all the electricity, so the battery will only have half the power after leaving unused a month. Although the electric motorcycle self-discharge is a normal phenomenon, but if we use improperly, it will make the electric motorcycle over-discharge, which is very harmful to the battery. Let's take a look at what causes the battery to overdischarge? 

Let's take a look about the reason of battery self-discharge. 

1. If the storage time is too long, the battery will discharge due to the change of electrical electrolyte after long-term placement. 

2. The electrolyte is impure and contains impurities, so a certain potential difference is formed, which leads to short circuit in the battery and the power is consumed. 

3. When there is a bridge or short circuit outside the battery, the positive and negative poles are connected, the phenomenon of violent discharge will occur. In addition, when the battery shell or top cover position has leakage of electrolyte, will also lead to discharge. 

4. During the use of the battery, if the battery container has leakage, or daily use without attention, resulting in water inside battery container, will also lead to self-discharge of the battery. It can be seen that there are many reasons for the self-discharge of the battery. In the daily use process, we should also pay attention to these situations to avoid excessive discharge of the electric motorcycle battery, so as to affect the battery life. How to prevent the battery from discharging? 

First, improve the maintenance, charge timely

In the maintenance process, pay attention to the cleaning of the battery, often check wehther is damage. In addition, after the use of the battery, if the battery power is found to be less than 30%, it is necessary to charge in time, to avoid excessive use of the battery. 

Second, handle lightly 

The electrolyte in the electric motorcycle battery is very important, so in the process of moving it must be handled lightly, to avoid collision damage to the battery shell, resulting in electrolyte leakage. 

Third,  check the motorcycel frequently, to ensure the use of safety 

In the use of electric motorcycles, lines and various parts will have various faults with the extension of time limit, which will seriously affect the mileage and shorten the service life. Therefore, it is necessary to regularly test various components inside the motorcycle, and replace them in time if they are found to be rusty or oxidized 

Fourth, prevent moisture 

When riding the electric motorcycle, if you do not pay attention to the rainy days, or water on the road surface, the battery container is easy to water, which will result in battery short circuit, causing self-discharge. So in this case, try to avoid wading or direct rain, at the same time regularly check the inner part of battery container, if it is found that there is water clean up directly, so that the battery container remains dry.
