1Are Electronic Vehicles (EVs) street legal? Do I need a license or registration?
Classified as an Electric Assisted Bicycle, you don't need a license or registration to ride them but must abide by the rules of the road and bicycle laws. See the M.A.C. Laws section of this website for full set of rules and regulations.
2Can you ride your EV in the rain or snow?
Yes you can ride your EV in the rain but refrain from riding in heavy rainfall unless absolutely necessary. Do not ride in deep water that could submerge your wheels above the axle. The rear axle is where the wiring goes into your motor so you should not get water inside.
3I don’t ride in winter, what should I do with the batteries?
If you prevent the batteries from remaining empty for longer periods of time, they will last much longer. So be sure to charge your batteries at least once per month. Do not let your batteries freeze or overcharge. It will damage them.
4How can I get best performance from the batteries?
To condition your new batteries you should charge them and drain them 5-10x. Do not overcharge more than 8 hours or over discharge. Batteries also should not be frozen or else they will be damaged. If you ride a lot, we recommend charging wherever you go whenever possible.
5How often do I have to charge the batteries?
Like your mobile device, the full charge will get you furthest. You can charge at any time but the batteries can be recharged even if they aren’t completely empty, so you can recharge your batteries whenever it is convenient for you. As stated above, if you ride a lot, we recommend charging wherever you go whenever possible. But like your mobile device, the battery does not have to be full charged in order to use.
6How long does it take to fully charge the batteries?
That is dependent on the battery's current charge level. Completely empty batteries will take 6-8 hours to charge with a standard charger. Chargers will stop charging when the battery is fully charged. Do not charge more than 8-10 hours or it will damage the batteries.
