The lifespan of your SWFT battery is measured according to charge cycles, which vary from product to product. The charge cycles indicate how many times the battery can undergo a full charge followed by 80% depletion until it starts to lose capacity. SWFT product battery charge cycles are indicated below:
- VOLT - 600 cycles
- FLEET - 800 cycles
- ZIP - 600 cycles
- MAXX - 500 cycles
A quick tip: Your SWFT e-bike will come partially pre-charged. This is due to transport regulations and safety. Before your first ride, we recommend giving your e-bike battery a full and complete charge. Make sure your battery indicator light on your charger reads green before you disconnect your charger and take your first ride.
To help prolong your battery life, we recommend you charge your battery when the battery level on your display reads at around 25%. We do not recommend letting your battery drain to 0% too often to avoid causing battery strain. Another great way to help extend the battery's lifespan is to avoid over-charging the battery. Make sure to charge your e-bike according to our recommended charge times, and disconnect when the charging indicator turns green to show you that your e-bike battery is fully charged.
