Protect your Electric Bike and Electric Scooter

Lithium-ion batteries power many portable consumer electronics, electric vehicles, and even store power in energy storage systems. In normal applications, the Li-ion batteries are safe, but if damaged or overheated, they can cause fires.

  • Only use manufacturer-provided or authorized batteries and charging equipment. All equipment should be certified by a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory.
  • Remove the battery or charging device from power once charging is complete to avoid overheating
  • Keep batteries and charge them at room temperature. Issues can occur below 32° F or above 105° F
  • Keep batteries and devices from heat sources or anything that can catch fire
  • Do not store batteries in vehicles or direct sunlight
  • All maintenance on batteries or e-mobility devices should be completed by a qualified professional

Discontinue using devices or batteries that have an unusual odor, change in color, too much heat, change in shape, are leaking, smoking, or not keeping a charge.
