Hi, someone knows how to maintenance the battery if I do not use the Mini Pro in winter?

"Battery Pack Maintenance

Do not allow the battery to get colder than -4°F (-20°C) or hotter than 122°F (50°C). Do not charge the
battery when the ambient temperature is less than 32°F (0°C) or greater than 104°F (40°C). Do not discard
or destroy the battery. For more battery information, refer to the sticker on the battery itself, located on the
bottom of the miniPRO. Refer to your local laws and regulations regarding battery recycling and/or disposal.
A well maintained battery can perform well even after many miles of riding. Charge the battery after each
ride and avoid draining the battery completely. When used at room temperature (70°F [22°C]) the battery
range and performance is at its best; whereas using it at temperatures below 32°F (0°C) can decrease
range and performance. Typically, at -4°F (-20°C) range can be half that of the same battery at 70°F (22°C).
Battery range will recover when temperature rises. More details are available in the App.
NOTE
Typically, a fully charged battery should retain charge for 120-180 days in Standby Mode. A low-power
battery should retain charge for 30-60 days in Standby Mode. Remember to charge the battery after each
use. Completely draining the battery may cause permanent damage to the battery. Electronics inside the
battery record the charge-discharge condition of the battery; damage caused by over-discharge or
under-discharge will not be covered by the Limited Warranty.
WARNING
Do not attempt to disassemble the battery. Doing so risks electric shock and/or damage to the vehicle.
WARNING
We strongly recommend against riding when the ambient temperature is below 23°F (-5°C) because low
temperature will limit the maximum power/torque. Doing so could cause personal injury or property
damage due to slips or falls.

12 Maintenance
Cleaning and Storing Your miniPRO

Use a soft, wet cloth to wipe the mainframe clean. Hard to remove dirt can be scrubbed with a toothbrush
and toothpaste, then cleaned with a soft, wet cloth. Scratches on plastic parts can be polished with extra
fine grit abrasive paper.
NOTE
Do not wash your miniPRO with alcohol, gasoline, acetone, or other corrosive/volatile solvents. These
substances may damage the appearance and internal structure of your miniPRO. Do not wash your
miniPRO with a power washer or high pressure hose.
WARNING
Make sure the miniPRO is powered OFF, the charging cable is unplugged, and the rubber cap on the
charge port is tightly sealed before cleaning; otherwise you may expose yourself to electric shock or
damage the electronic components.
Store your miniPRO in a cool, dry place. Do not store it outdoors for extended periods of time. Exposure to
sunlight and temperature extremes (both hot and cold) will accelerate the aging process of the plastic
components and may reduce battery life.
Tire Pressure
Inflate tires to 45–50 psi. Inflate both tires equally.

Hi, someone knows how to maintenance the battery if I do not use the Mini Pro in winter?

According to http://batteryuniversity.com/learn/article/how_to_store_batteries (and most posters here) the battery should be charged to around 40% (1) and not be stored at "elevated temperatures" (>30 degrees celcius)

And also http://batteryuniversity.com/learn/article/how_to_prolong_lithium_based_batteries is interesting.

if you do not need the full range of your mini pro you can noticable increase the battery lifetime by charging just up to 80%. But i'd assume riding the mini at lower charges does not make too much fun... for the batteries it would be about optimal to keep the charge while normal usage below 80% and something above 15-30% (depends of what the app/gauge really shows - especially at lower percentage its not the remaing battery capacity...)

so also fully charging just before riding will prolong the lifetime. (Shorten the time the battery gets stressed by full charge!)

ps.: from time to time the cells in the battery pack need to be balanced (happens for EUCs once the charger shows the green light) for ~one/?some? hours. I assume charging/BMS with the mini works quite the same?

edit:

(1) one should check the battery charge from time to time, since due to self discharge the charge level could drop too low (especially with older batteries) and charge them again to about 40%.

On the tires,they said 30psi maxim inflate and 70kg!!!!!!

As written before, best not fully charge after each use (just to at least something like 40% up to something around 80%) and fully charge before riding. (And be sure to check while longer breaks that the charge of the battery does not get too low!)

As full charge also stresses the battery! Especially when charged full at higher temperatures (room temp) and then

"Store your miniPRO in a cool, dry place."

put to a cool place!

As it seems strictly following the manual leads to higher turnover for the company...

Preparing for weather changes and less riding in the cold.

Ideally, you want to fully charge it just before you want to go out.

This way you get the most power at the start, and once you are done with your trip, the minipro won't be sitting there with a full charge.
