1.3. How to report an anomaly
Before reporting to the after-sales service, please check the wiring as well as the
charging state of the battery.
If the anomaly remains, send an e-mail to the after-sales service
support@cycloboost.com with the following information :
•
Your name
•
Your invoice number
•
The serial number of your motor, controller of battery
•
The precise description of the failure : how it happened (while cycling, at a
standstill, at the start, while charging the battery, while braking, while
speeding up …)
•
The tests or handlings you made

2 . Getting started with your battery
2.2. Charging the battery
Before the first use, it is very important to charge the battery completely. The
battery you receive is charged up to 80%.
The batteries must be manipulated with caution.
The batteries with no case must be protected and fixed during the use on your vehicle.
You need to plan an initial charge of 2 hours approximately.
The 24v charger gets connected on the waterproof plug located on the side of the
battery.
2.1. Presentation of the battery
The battery is delivered with a set of numbered keys (it is important to know the
number in case you lose it), a sliding rack and a charger.
To remove the battery from the rack, you just need to turn the key a quarter. Then
you can remove the key when you are cycling.
To insert the battery on its rack, you need to hear a CLIC, meaning it has been put in
the right place.
During the charge the light of the charger is
charged.
RED
then gets
GRREN
once
You need about 8h00 to completely charge your battery.
Do not disconnect the charger if the light is still red.
Remember to switch off the battery thanks to the switch located underneath when
you charge it.
3 . Connecting the battery to the bike
2.3. The charge warning lights
On the battery, you also have a gauge equipped with charge warning light : 1 red
and 4 green .
3.1. Preparation pf the power cable
ou can use the Anderson connectors to solder, to prepare your power cable.
During the discharge, the green lights will switch off until there is only the
red one left.
Anderson connectors to put at the end of the power cable of your battery.
On the contrary, during the charge of the battery, the green lights switch on
until they are all on.
Do not pinch the Anderson connectors without special pliers as you could
damage them for good. Prefer to solder them.
IMPORTANT : unplug the cable BEFORE any manipulation.
2.4. Duration of the charge
The charge duration can be calculated as follows :
Charge duration = Capacity of the battery AH / Intensity of the charger A
Example :
•
•
BROWN cable : positive pole, RED Anderson connector
BLUE
cable : negative pole, BLACK Anderson connector
Here is what you should get on the power cable of the battery :
Charger 1,5A and battery 11,5Ah
Duration of the charge = 11,5 / 1,5 = 7,66 hours
This is an idea of the duration as it also depends on the level of discharge of the
battery. You also need to add a balancing phase of the cells which may take 30mn
more.
Advice : to improve the lifetime and performances of the battery, it is better to use
only up to 90% of the battery's capacity.
If you get an autonomy of 50km on your itinerary, it is recommended to only cycle for
45km before each charge.
Be careful to respect the polarity. Use a voltmeter to check the tension before
disconnecting the controller.
3.2. Fixing the battery to the bike frame
4 . Functionning of the warning light of the
throttle
You just need to screw the sliding rack in the space of the flask of water with the
original screws of your bike.
Twist or thumb throttles are equipped with a
warning light with 3 lights :
GREEN
ORANGE
RED
: battery full
: battery half discharged
: battery empty or almost empty
This warning light enables to get an idea of the charge of your battery : it is the same
light whatever the battery type (Lead, Nimh, Nicd, Li-ion, Lifepo4).
Every type of battery has a proper functionning range which is not the same as the
others. This charge warning light is not a reliable element in terms of charge level of
the battery, it just gives an idea.
3.3. Connecting the battery to the electric kit
On your controller, we also advise to put Anderson connectors, you can check the
following guides :
The warning lights of the throttle are calibrated according to the battery you connect.
A 36v throttle will have a functionning range corresponding to a 36v battery, same
thing for a 24v throttle or 48v throttle.
Use guide of the Anderson connectors
Balade Kit 250w/500w
Xtrême Kit 750w/1000w
Magic Pie Kit
It is possible to connect a 36v battery with a 48v throttle, the functionning of the kit
will not be affected because the functionning range of the warning light will not
be adapted.
Now you just need to connect the battery to the controller :
Battery
For more precision, a simple meter with kilometers tote will enable you to know
your autonomy in km.
Controller
In concrete terms, with a 48v throttle and a 24v battery, the RED light will always
be on, even if the battery is full.
On the contrary, with a 24v throttle and a 48v battery, you will have all lights on,
even with an empty battery.
5 . Running in of the battery
IMPORTANT
•
•
make 5 cycles of complete charge/discharge when cycling
• completely empty the battery
• completely charge the battery (a whole night for example)
during the 5 cycles of running in, do not overdo it with the bike because
you would use 1000W. This can damage the future performances of the
battery.
6 . Use advice
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Do not interrupt the charge of the battery
After the running in, to improve the lifespan and performances of the battery,
it is better to use only 90% of the battery's capacity
Do not store the battery in a damp or cold environment (<10°C)
Do not store the battery discharged (put the battery in charge every 3 months
in case of long storage)
Protect the battery and connectors from the rain and from shocks
Plan a long enough cable to avoid tearing it
Disconnect the battery from the controller or cut the power when you do not
use the bike more than half a day
7 . Important recommendations
-
Do not cover the battery during the charge
Do not store nor charge the battery next to inflammable products
Do not immerse the battery
Respect the running in of the batteries
Do not clean with chemical products
Do not open the battery (guarantee not valid if opened)
Do not remove the guarantee labels (guarantee not valid)
Do not leave the battery in the sun
Do not store outside or in a damp environment
