Three points to know about charging lithium batteries in electric vehicles:
Lithium batteries are the first choice for battery upgrades in electric vehicles. After lithium batteries have been widely used in portable communication tools such as mobile phones, their green and environmental quality has been recognized. This kind of battery that does not use water and does not contain any heavy metals in the production process uses carbon and lithium salts as the main raw materials, and all the exhaust gas produced is recycled and reused; no solid pollution is produced, and the impact on the environment is minimized. The lithium battery is less than 3 kg, which is much lighter than the 15 kg lead-acid battery; in terms of performance, the lithium battery also performs better. It can be charged and discharged normally from -20°C to 55°C, and its life is the life of an electric vehicle lead-acid battery. 3 to 4 times. It is predicted that lithium battery electric vehicles will become popular in the next 3 to 5 years. It's just that the high price of electric self-lithium batteries is still daunting for consumers. I believe that with the maturity of the production technology of lithium batteries in a few years, they will surely enter the people's homes at a reasonable price.
Lithium batteries for electric vehicles will be widely used, so how to charge lithium batteries for electric vehicles correctly during use? The following three points are explained in detail:
1. Place the power supply:
The battery pack has some remaining power before leaving the factory, and it can also be used for short-distance riding after the electric vehicle is sold. After the first ride, the battery must be charged for the first time. It is recommended that the first charge should be a little longer (8-12 hours). The battery pack should be charged in time after use and not stored at a loss. If the battery has not been used for more than two months, the battery pack needs to be fully charged. If the battery pack is stored for more than 5 months, a charge-discharge cycle is required. Use the battery regularly, and charge the battery pack regularly during normal use and long-term storage, which can ensure the best practical effect of the battery pack and prolong its service life.
2. Normal charging:
The method of charging the battery pack normally is as follows:
First connect the charger and the battery pack to be charged, and then connect the charger power plug to the 220V AC power supply. (This connection sequence will avoid the generation of sparks when plugging and unplugging the charging plug.) When the power is turned on, the charger displays a red indicator light indicating that the battery pack is charging normally, and it can be charged normally for 6-8 hours.
3. Note for charger:
In order to ensure the charging safety of the battery pack and guarantee the service life of the battery pack, the battery pack uses the supporting lithium battery charger. If the charger is lost or damaged, please buy it from the corresponding dealer. Do not use lead-acid chargers or other forms of chargers for charging.
