The battery is one of the most expensive components of your e-bike, but unfortunately still a wearing part. While with the right level of maintenance you will be able to use your e-bike for several decades, your battery will have to be replaced a few times during this lifespan, as an e-bike battery is subject to both wear and aging, resulting in a continuously decreasing capacity. This decrease in capacity corresponds to a decreasing distance range for which the battery will be able to support you while cycling. This is the same effect you probably know from your mobile phone or laptop: at a certain point the capacity of the battery is so low that it needs to be replaced.

If you treat your e-bike battery smartly, you can increase the life-span of your battery considerably. Most modern e-bike batteries are Lithiom-Ion-batteries, which are characterised by a high energy density (= large capacity with a low weight) and lack of the memory effect (= the decrease of battery-capacity by unfavourable chosen battery load cycles). Stadtradler has summarised the main points and tips on how to treat your e-bike battery properly.
