What is the battery lifespan?
Blix uses Samsung 48V/14AH batteries, which have an incredible 25,000 mile (500-800 charging cycles) expected lifetime.
With each extra amp hour, there is an increase in life time. Replacement and backup batteries are available. Our replacement batteries start at $599. You can shop for batteries here.
You can ensure your battery has a long and healthy life simply by riding and charging your bike often, and storing it properly:
- Do not leave the battery fully discharged in storage.
- When storing the battery for a long period of time, keep the battery at a charge of between 20-80% to prolong battery life.
- Only use the charger provided with your Blix bike.
- Do not store the battery in extreme temperatures as this will cause irreversible damage to the Lithium-Ion cells.
- Do not allow the battery to fall below a 5% charge.
