Protecting Maintaining Your Electric Bike Battery

Purchasing a Bakcou electric bike is an investment, similar to a car, camper, or ATV. Just like with a vehicle purchase, caring for and protecting your electric bike is vital to its function and longevity. One of the most important aspects to maintain on an electric bike is the battery. Bakcou electric bike batteries are composed of lithium-ion cells, optimizing for total weight and energy. These batteries have the best range and longevity compared to other battery options. Bakcou uses them because of their high capacity. While we find them to be the best option for our electric bikes, it’s important to note that they require a certain level of maintenance and protection to maintain their longevity and function to keep you riding.

Battery Life Sweet Spot

The easiest way to maintain your electric bike battery is to keep the charge within the sweet spot of 20-80% charge. When we talk about charging a lithium-ion battery, the two most stressful charging periods are charging from 0-20% and 80-100%. Completely discharging your battery (running it down to 0%) forces your battery to go through the most stressful charge periods. It also decreases the total number of charge cycles in the life of your battery.

bakcou, mule, elite, electric, hunting

We understand that there may be times when you’re pushing your electric bike and the battery to the limit to get the most out of the ride, and these infrequent occasions won’t have a drastic effect on your battery. When you’re able, we recommend partial charges and keeping your battery in the sweet spot to keep the battery’s capacity high. To go along with this, we recommend that users do not store the battery at a full 100% charge and remove their battery from the charger when it reaches a full charge.

Maintaining Core Temperature

Another aspect of protecting your battery is maintaining the correct core temperature. The ideal core temperature for a lithium-ion battery is between 50°F and 75°F. The core temperature is vital when storing your lithium battery. Storage in very high or low temperatures can be detrimental to the life of your battery. Using the lithium-ion battery in less than ideal temperatures can impact your battery life and performance, specifically in harsh, cold temperatures. When you operate at colder temperatures, the temperature of the lithium-ion cells can vary, and there could be some cells at a high temperature and some that stay at a lower temp. The battery management system (BMS) sees this variation in temperatures as an internal issue and shuts the battery off to protect the cells.

At Bakcou, we know that riding your electric bike at cold temperatures is inevitable, especially if you’re using your bike for hunting, so we developed the Thermal Battery Jacket to wrap around your bike battery, like a jacket. The insulated battery jacket has an internal heating element that helps maintain an optimal core temperature of the lithium-ion cells.

Avoid High Temps and Excess Moisture

We do have a few more tips to help maintain the longevity and performance of your electric bike’s lithium-ion battery. While a bit of a no-brainer, Bakcou recommends riders avoid salt and saltwater to avoid chances of corrosion. Along with that, Bakcou recommends that riders avoid submerging their lithium battery in large pools of water. Bakcou electric bikes have a waterproof rating of IP6. We still recommend avoiding deep creek crossings and puddles to avoid drowning the battery. Another tip for protecting your battery includes storing it in a dry, cool place. Some place that it will stay at room temperature as much as possible.

Finally, Bakcou recommends avoiding touching or allowing anything but the bike to touch the connection port on the battery. This helps to avoid damaging it or allowing debris to get in, both of which will affect the connection to the electric bike.

Battery Lifespan

We are frequently asked by Bakcou customers what the lifespan of our lithium-ion electric bike batteries is. And we answer by saying that if you take care of the battery, the battery will take care of you. A well-maintained lithium battery could easily see 800-900 charges in its lifespan. That many charge cycles can add up to years worth of fun, with typical use, from one battery purchase.

While we’re on the subject of batteries, we should probably mention that Bakcou has the largest electric bike battery available on the market. The extended distance 25ah Panasonic Lithium-ion 48v battery is a game changer! Upgrade your battery today to let your Bakcou electric bike take you farther on your next adventure.

Battery is fully charged and after riding across a bumpy field where my thumb fluctuates on the throttle, the power cuts off. The battery indicator is at 80% and drops dramatically to a very low %. I thought I was doing something wrong so I let other experienced riders try it and the same thing happened to them. HELP!

My backou storm will not stay powered on. I push the battery button and it turns off within 2 seconds. The power display only stays on for the same amount of time. I was able to ride it about 20 feet and everything on the bike shut off. The battery had a good charge on it also. Thanks, jim

I need to know how to take the battery off my Storm bike. I engage the key but the battery does not give. Help!

The Top Reasons The Mule is a Game Changer

The torque sensing Bafang Ultra mid-drive motor certainly sets it apart from not to forget the air suspension, hill climbing, small front chain ring and large rear cassette gearing, wide handlebars, locking grips, aggressive wide pedals, large 203 rotors and hydraulic brakes, Maxxis Minion tires with puncture proof lining placed between the tube and tire is what makes it so comfortable, safe, functional, and fun to ride.

The aptly named Mule is the real workhorse of the BAKCOU collection and understandably so. The Mule is for serious hunters that need a high performing machine that works with the rider to compliment the hunt and make you the most proficient hunter you can be by getting farther and faster, stealthy quiet and without leaving a scent trail.

No electric hunting bike can match the Mule on performance, and with both 750W and 1000W options you can get as much power as you need to get your hunt on!

Hunting is one of the greatest pastimes that you can take part in. Not only will the game you hunt provide in part to help conserve the planet. But getting into the wilderness can be a difficult task even for the seasoned professional. Instead of worrying about getting to your next hunting location, why not let the BAKCOU Mule handle the hard work?

This bike was designed to handle just about any terrain and get you where you need to be. Below we are going to take a deeper look at this to see what it has to offer you.

Two Different Power Options

When it comes to the BAKCOU Mule, you will be happy to find that you have lots of options. When it comes to power, the Mule comes in two different sizes. The Mule 750 watt and the Mule 1000 Watt Both of these bikes are powered by a Bafang Ultra mid-drive motor with torque sensor that has been proven to be the alpha male of mid drive motors.

Exclusive to BAKCOU, all Mules are equipped with the 1000 Watt motor and if you choose to purchase the 750 Watt they dial back the 1000 into a 750 Watt. Why is that important?

bakcou, mule, elite, electric, hunting

Well the 1000 Watt has thicker wiring so a larger amount of amps can flow compared to a motor with wiring on a 750 Watt. 750 watt cannot be dialed up to a 1000 Watt, but if the motor was originally a 1000 Watt it can be restored to 1000 Watt in a few seconds directly from the display on the handlebars so you can choose a 750 Mule knowing that you can go on most land legally, then when you want more speed you can reset it to 1000 Watt.

No matter which power option you choose, you get plenty of juice to keep you going for a long time. A 48 volt extended distance battery helps give the Mule that extra push. The Mule has a range of up to 40 miles before having to return home or to base camp for a recharge. This gives hunters the power they need to drive deep into the wilderness where the game is.

Easy To Control

The BAKCOU Mule is one of the easiest to control. It comes standard with an LCD display that helps you keep up with your speed and battery life which is always important to anyone that hunts. The bike also comes with a set of powerful hydraulic 203mm disc breaks that will allow you to quickly stop when you need to.

Most hunting locations you to rough you will always have a smooth ride thanks to this GT MRK air fork suspension. A left handed thumb throttle provides all the power you will need and it makes going up steep hills a breeze!

Built To Last Even In The Elements

As a hunter, the ebike you choose needs to be able to handle a lot of abuse. The trails are rough and you will probably be venturing into regions where there may not even be a beaten path. Thanks to the well designed and well built Mule, you will never have to worry about it giving up on you!

This electric bike comes with a durable aluminum alloy frame that won’t rust or bend to pressure. Dealing with moisture just a part of being out in the you will never have to worry about getting this bike wet. So if you are looking for that can thrive in harsh conditions, the Mule just might be the right one for you!

Carry Lots of Gear

Having the right hunting gear is very important to your success. The more gear you can carry with you, the better your chances of beating the odds and bagging that elusive deer or elk. The Mule can help you carry tons of gear without slowing down! With a load capacity of up to 300 pounds, you will have all the room that you will need.

This is perfect for those hunters who like to take larger game like deer, elk and wild boar. Getting your game back to base camp will be a breeze and you will never have to worry about lugging it out by hand ever again! The ebike trailers that Bakcou also produce are great for hauling your kill.

Several Wonderful Colors To Choose From

The BAKCOU Mule comes in different color schemes. Riders can choose between a matte black, and for those who like to stay hidden while in the wilderness, Special Edition Kuiu Verde 2.0. The latter color pattern is a version of digital that works well in just about any natural environment. A few other colors like desert tan, white and other camo designs too.

The Mule 750/1000 watt electric bike was designed with the hunter in mind. Not only can it quietly get around in the forest, it can go just about anywhere you want to take it!

Another awesome feature is the Walk-Assist Mode. The Mule is really effective on steep terrain, let’s say there’s a steep hill you’d rather be careful on, simply switch it to walk-assist and the bike motor will engage at a speed 3 mph so you can walk alongside the bike and the bike does the heavy lifting.

Durable and fast, this will get you to your destination quickly and will last you for many years to come. So if you are looking for a great hunting bike, you should really check out what the Mule has to offer!
