Disconnect the battery
As Okinawa has some best in class EV Bikes and Scooters like iPraise+, PraisePro, Ridge+ which are High Speed EVs where as R30, and Lite are low-speed EVs, which provides you the functionality of removing your scooter’s battery to charge. For theses model which has #detachable lithium-ion battery, we advise you to disconnect the battery of your vehicle by removing the connections. This will prevent the depletion of the battery of your vehicle in the present scenario when it needs to be parked for multiple days.
Opt for MCB Off mode if your vehicle is equipped with inbuilt battery feature(Lead Acid)
For those owners who has Lead Acid battery scooter like Praise, Ridge, Ridge30, and Raise, has come with a MCB Off mode and as the name suggests, it switches off the vehicle completely. This MCB Off mode is designed to be used for situations when the vehicle has to be parked for a long period of time, say when the owner is out for a vacation or lockdowns like these.
Charge your scooter’s battery/batteries after every 3-4 days
As every battery has a nature of an idle drain so the scooter’s battery has also the same nature, the battery drains significantly even if the vehicle is parked for a prolonged period of time. In order to prevent the battery from running out of charge completely, it is advised to charge the battery/vehicle every 3 to 4 days even when you are not using the vehicle.
Park properly and use cover
Find a proper parking spot for your scooter and but a covered parking is the most recommended one. If you don’t have such setup, use a two-wheeler cover that will help in protecting your vehicle from dust and rains.
