A fully charged battery, kept at a high temperature can dramatically decrease the life of the battery.
If you’re following step one above, you already know not to fully charge all the time. Sweet!
Now you just need to find a cool spot to leave your battery when you are finished charging!
Certainly don’t leave it in direct sunlight, eek!
But at the same time, try not to leave it in a warm area of your house like a conservatory, sunroom, hot water closet.
Closed, small spaces aren’t usually good either.
Somewhere ventilated, cool and not humid is best.
If the area you live in is always like this – just try your best!
Riding outside in very cold, or very warm temperatures will also affect the performance of your battery.
You may not be able to avoid it. But keep it in mind also!
