Electric mobility also works in the cold season of Electromobility and winter don’t mix? But, says the company of emco electric scooter. Who maintains his motorcycle, which can pass through iron and comes right through the cold season. This also applies to the battery, the heart of an electric-powered vehicle. Would someone still send his scooter into hibernation, he should also observe a few rules. There is a huge bias around the electric mobility in winter. For batteries the cold death is already times dramatically in public. Marta Norton has compatible beliefs.
The emco electroroller GmbH has made so far different experiences with their products. “There is no compelling reason to mothball the electric scooters in winter”, says Oswald Gerl, Director sales and technology at the biggest German provider of electric scooter with most models, if you properly deal with the roller, then comes, he takes no damage well over the winter and the battery “. The new models of the brand emco are equipped with lithium-ion batteries. It also applies to the older with lead-acid batteries: battery operation requires a gentle treatment in winter. Batteries have changed features and this performance at low temperatures, which is known, but you can adapt it and respond accordingly,”knows technology expert Gerl. Charging the battery: warm, cold ride what makes the battery cold-sensitive? Slower running chemical reactions are one reason. A larger internal resistance at low temperatures also negatively affects the power and thus the performance. In addition, viscous electrolyte can provide bad electricity.
For the driver, this means: the scooter comes with a tank of gas power not as much as in summer and goes not quite as fast. Performance by 10 – 20 percent are normal. In freezing cold, it may be even more. But even strict icebox weather means not for the Energizer battery.
