What cleaning and maintenance does the pedelec require?
The battery in particular must be treated with some degree of care. We recommend allowing it to cool off after cycling and before charging. Although the latest battery chargers indicate when the battery is fully charged, it is advisable to charge the battery for a little longer as the final phase always takes slightly longer. As a rule of thumb, when the charger first shows a full battery, it is actually only 90% charged.
You should also try to store the battery at room temperature, avoiding extremely cold or hot conditions. It is best to allow the battery to discharge completely on first use as failing to do so can reduce its future performance.
Gepida pedelecs are resistant to rain and wind and can therefore be washed with water. However, some caution is advised when cleaning the battery and electrical system as water penetration can effect battery performance. More detailed information is provided in the owner’s manual that comes with your Gepida pedelec.
