How to Improve The Range Of Your E-Bike

So, you’ve grown attached to your electric bike and have been using it more than you thought. But, wouldn’t it be great if the charge could go on for just that little bit more? Good news! There are a number of simple things you can do to improve your e-bike’s range, be it simple riding behavioral changes or techniques, or smaller technical tweaks. Read on for tips that will help improve the mileage of your e-bike.

1. EASE UP ON THE THROTTLE

Though it may be fun to start off at full speed, each time you accelerate you are using a lot more energy than when you’re cruising. So, instead of going full throttle when you want to accelerate, try to ease into the throttle and accelerate a bit slower. By taking a few seconds longer to increase your speed, you keep the amount of power used by your battery much lower. This not only leaves more energy in the battery for a longer ride, it also helps keep the battery cooler, which lets it use that same energy more efficiently. Increased battery efficiency means increase range.

2. USE THE GEARS/ PEDALS ALONG WITH THE ACCELERATOR

Acceleration takes up the biggest chunk of battery power on an e-bicycle, if you pedal for even a few seconds as you accelerate,or use your gears (if you have) in combination with pedaling, you can cut your energy usage during that phase by as much as half. This in turn translates to energy saved, especially when riding in a lot of stop and go traffic.

3. FULLY CHARGED BATTERY

Perhaps the most obvious, but make sure your battery is fully charged. Sometimes it is easy to forget about charging your battery after a long day on the bike.

4. KEEP YOUR TIRES WELL INFLATED

Keeping your tire pressure up will impact the amount of energy required to keep the bicycle in motion - battery and your own energy, too. Stick within the recommended PSI range inscribed on the side walls of the tire. Low tire pressure can make your electric bike feel sluggish and over-inflated tires can lead to a rough ride and increased puncture susceptibility.

5. A WELL-MAINTAINED BIKE IS A LONG-LASTING BIKE

Follow a well-structured maintenance plan that is specific to e-bicycles to help improve the range of your e-bike. This includes proper battery care as well as overall maintenance.

Conclusion

Following these simple tips should help improve the mileage of your electric bike without tearing a hole in your pocket. However, if you have the budget for it and really want to improve/increase your ebike’s range, there is nothing like a second battery (especially for e-bicycles whose battery pack is detachable).
