How to maintain an electric car battery?

Precautions for maintenance of electric vehicle batteries:

1. Correctly arrange the charging time.

 Generally, the battery charging time is about 10 hours. Please avoid overcharging. When preparing for a long-distance trip, arrange for charging on the way to avoid insufficient power during driving, which will cause the battery to over-discharge and seriously shorten its life.

2. Protect the portable EV charger

If the charger is jolted and vibrated for a long time, its internal potentiometer may move, resulting in inaccurate parameters and abnormal charging. Therefore, it is recommended to bring a portable charger and protect it with soft packaging. Don't shake it too much. When charging, pay attention to the ventilation of the charger.

3. Frequent charging.

 can not be idle for a long time without charging, this is conducive to the shallow cycle of the battery and prolong the battery life. Perform a deep discharge on the battery regularly to activate the battery.

4. Shortage of electricity when stored strictly. 

When the battery is stored in the state of power loss, sulfation is prone to occur. The lead sulfate crystalline material adheres to the electrode plate, which will block the ion channel, and the car will be insufficiently charged and the battery capacity will decrease. The longer the idle time is, the more serious the battery damage is. Therefore, when the battery is not in use, it should be replenished once a month to better maintain the battery health.

5. Avoid high current discharge. 

When an electric vehicle starts, carries people, and goes uphill, try to avoid slamming and accelerating, resulting in instantaneous large current discharge. High-current discharge can easily lead to lead sulfate crystals, thereby destroying the physical properties of the battery plates.

6. Prevent exposure in the sun and extreme cold.

 If an electric car explodes in the sun for a long time, it will increase the internal pressure of the battery and cause the battery to lose water, causing the battery to deteriorate and accelerate the aging. And if it is an extremely cold temperature, it will also adversely affect the activity of the battery.

AC charging point design suggestion

  AC charging point design suggestion The following considerations should be considered when designing an AC charging point:   1. Charging power: current and voltage information. 2. Communication protocol 3. Protection level: Whether the angle between the cable of the charging pile and the pile body and the angle of the hanging ev plug conform to the drainage principle. 4. Dimensions: The outline dimensions of the ev plug fully conform to the latest national standard dimensions. 5. The charging ev plug homing structure. 6. If there is no one to guard, the ev plug homing detection and ev plug locking device should also be considered, and cannot be touched at will. 7. The service life of the cable. 8. Whether the material of the ev plug can be used outdoors. 9. The outer diameter of the charging cable.   From the above precautions, we see that the material of the AC EV plug is required to be used outdoors, then the material is required to have the following characteristics: weather resis

Why does the capacity of lithium batteries decrease in low-temperature environments?

 Why does the capacity of lithium batteries decrease in low-temperature environments? According to reports, the discharge capacity of lithium-ion batteries at -20 ℃ is only about 31.5% of that at room temperature. The working temperature of traditional lithium batteries is between -20~+55 ℃. Among numerous environmental factors, temperature has the greatest impact on the performance of lithium batteries. The electrolyte used in lithium batteries, as an organic liquid, like grease, can become viscous or even coagulate at low temperatures. At this point, the activity of conductive lithium salts inside is greatly restricted, resulting in low charging efficiency, which can lead to slow charging, insufficient charging, and discharge of lithium batteries at low temperatures.Lithium batteries are limited in their use in low-temperature environments, as their discharge capacity may severely decline and they cannot be charged at low temperatures. During low-temperature charging, the insertion o

Will high energy density of lithium batteries affect safety?

 Will high energy density of lithium batteries affect safety? What is battery energy density? Since energy density is called density, it is the same concept as our junior high school physics, which represents the amount of electricity stored in a battery per unit volume/mass. That is to say, if the energy density of the battery is high, in order to achieve the same capacity, it is possible to carry fewer batteries and reduce the weight of the battery; Alternatively, with the same weight, bring more batteries to increase the battery capacity. What is energy density related to? The energy density of a battery is basically determined by the positive and negative electrodes of the battery, but only the active materials of the positive and negative electrodes cannot guarantee that the battery can generate electricity. There must be many non active substances, such as conductive aids, adhesives between active powders, isolation films, foil for the negative and positive electrodes, insulation
