An easy way to verify that your scooter’s charging system is functional if you’ve been having trouble with the battery being low. Also check out my battery check video to see if your battery is working properly :
car motorcycle bike battery charger aldi superb charger for the price but sadly this one slipped through quality control! no one put any of the 6 screws into the base! i did not discover this until the mains wires poked out. go and check yours quick, it could be dangerous giving you a shock or shorting out. i asked jtm contracts (ALDI CONTRACTOR?) for the 6 screws but they said send it back for a refund but im reluctant to because i have fitted the generic bike charger connections (optimate/oxford etc) purchased from maplins so it owes me £6 in connections! so i rummaged in my garage for 6 screws. so this is a heads up video i would be curious to hear of any others with same problem? JTM said I’m the first? just to underline… the charger itself is brilliant.
This is a PC board I made so I can charge a 48V seal lead acid battery from any 12VDC source. This design is simple and uses an off-the-shelf audio crossover coil. It charges my battery from a 12V source that gets switched on once the sun goes down. In the morning my batteries are ready to go and it didn’t cost me anything. Energy from the sun. However I can use with and 12V source that can provide 2-3 amps of power. There is a special circuit that will stop the SMPS once the battery level low around 11 volts. Next day the sun comes up and charges the 12V battery.

After the battery charger that does it all? This Century 6 Amp 12-volt battery charger is a fantastic addition to the garage to charge up small lawnmower batteries, bike & car batteries, to the large 4×4 deep cycle battery.

Please read! YouTube user Ciprianwiner wanted to know more about what I use to charge my sealed lead acid battery, so here it is.
The charger is a Numax 1 amp 12v sealed lead acid battery charger. I paid around £20 for it from a local battery specialist (Manbat) where as it would usually cost £35 on-line.
I am not saying that you never charge a sealed lead acid type with a car battery charger but I would advise being careful or using some sort of current limiting as once you have a gassing sealed battery from too much charging current its pretty much downhill from there in terms of capacity.
Usually you can find datasheets online from the battery manufacturers website with all of the charging specs for your specific battery.
Also it is common to see the battery’s voltage read well into the 13v range when it is taken off charge (I have even seen as high as 13.6v stay for a while!). But once you put a load on them it will come back down.
in today video we share amazing idea that How to make 12v bike battery charger at home easy step by step with circuit diagram.
its very easy and cheapest project. i use simple 12v transformer, some diodes and one capacitor. see full video and make it same.
Electric Bikes represent an alternative mode of transport that is both eco friendly, convenient and cost a fraction of the price a fully motorized motorcycle would in this day and age. For those that want all the benefits of a bicycle but would also appreciate the help that a fully rechargeable motor provides such modes of transport, the electric bike is the perfect solution.
What Is An Electric Bike
An electric bike is for all intents and purposes, a regular bicycle with a major difference. All electric bikes have on board a small electric motor that can power the wheels completely on its own. Today, they are popular known as the E-bike. The motor is powered by a rechargeable battery that lasts for a variable amount of time depending on the type of battery, quality of the battery as well as how the E-bike is used.
Speeds of up to fifteen miles per hour are possible but the drain on the battery can be immense. They are very popular in a few specific regions and countries across the globe. The one country that probably has the most electric bikes in use today is China. There are more than a hundred million examples on the roads of China today and its popularity seems to be growing. The other region where its popularity is booming is in Europe. Because of its ever growing popularity, many manufacturers have come into the arena looking to grab a piece of the pie. As such, there are over thirty different E-bike manufacturers around the world today.
There are also a number of benefits that come with using such a bike. In many places, they are not considered automobiles. As such, they aren’t too many stringent regulations placed on such items. Additionally, you may also be able to avoid paying taxes on what would otherwise be classified as an automobile like in the case of a motorcycle or a car. Costs are largely linked to the quality of components used as well as the brand in question. Those with cutting edge technology are likely to cost the most. The cheapest are usually mass market electric bikes that are very common in China in particular. However, cheaper variants are known to be a bit bulky and are made purely for function.
Expensive examples that have cutting edge ion batteries and features like regenerative braking systems are sure to cost a whole lot more compared to entry level bikes. Rarely, there are examples that even come with different gears for convenience.
Getting the Most Out Of An Electric Bike
The lifespan of the battery is directly linked to the length activated for as well as the terrain/slope of the terrain it is used in. This is something you will quickly learn within the first week of owning an electric bike. In the end, battery usage is directly linked to the motors work cycle. The more you use it, the faster the battery loses its charge. Additionally, these motors work the most when you’re going uphill so keep that in mind. To get the most out of your battery, it helps if you know the route you travel through intimately. You can then decide how you want to spend your battery power. Its usually best to mix and match between pure cycling and periods when the bike is motorized.
