Lithium-manganese battery life expectancy:
Charge cycles are not the main factor affecting the service life of the lithium- manganese battery. The battery does not have a memory-effect. Generally, a loss of capacity of 4 percent per year can be assumed. Ageing is accelerated if the battery is exposed to high temperatures for long periods and if it is stored fully charged for long periods. Therefore, the battery can be used in very hot conditions, but should be removed from the sun and stored in a cool place when not used. If it is stored for a longer period of time, its charge status should be about 50 percent. If these instructions are followed, your battery will have a life expectancy of some 6-10 years.
Integrated battery specifications:
The battery of the Travel motors have a capacity of 320 Wh Travel 503 and 532 Wh Travel 1003. The batteries are rated 11 Ah at 29.6 V Travel 503 and 18 Ah at 29.6 V Travel 1003.
Charging from solar:
The battery can be solar-charged during use. It comes with a charge connector that accepts 12 V solar chargers with power input of 4 Amps at maximum. See 1132-00
Charging from the on-board power supply:
To charge the battery from an on-board power supply, you will need an 12v Charger lead available separately See 1128-00
