Pedego Tech Tips: Battery Functions

Posted by Angela S on

Pedego Battery Sleep Functions

A Pedego battery is in sleep mode when you are unable to power up your bike and do not receive any information from the state of charge indicator. Sleep mode helps prolong the life of your battery and help protect the battery during storage. To wake up the Pedego battery, plug the battery into a Pedego charger. The charge port is on the bottom side of the battery. Open the dust cover and insert the charging port. 


How to Charge Your Pedego Battery

To charge your Pedego battery, first insert the AC cord in the back of your Pedego charger. Next, Pedego recommends using a surge protector or power strip when charging your Pedego battery. Next, power on the surge protector or power strip. Open the dust cover and insert the charging tip into the battery. Depending on the depletion of the battery, the charging time will vary. Once the battery is fully charge, you can remove the charging tip. Pedego recommends turning off the surge protector or power strip after the battery is fully charged.


How to Set Up Pedego Issued Voltmeter

When you receive your Pedego-issued Cen-Tech voltmeter. The first step will be opening the package. Inside will be the voltmeter, manual, and positive and negative leads. Next, unzip the tie and separate the two leads. The negative lead will enter the comport at the bottom of the voltmeter. The positive lead will enter the middle port of the voltmeter. Next, the correct function will be 200 DC V, which will be two clicks to the left. Power on the voltmeter and you will be able to test the voltage of your battery pack.


How to Check Pedego Battery Voltage at Discharge Port

To test the voltage of your Pedego battery, first make sure your voltmeter is at 200 DC V. Next, insert the negative lead (black wire) into the negative portion of the terminal (the inbound side). Next, insert the positive lead (red wire) into the positive terminal of the battery. Power the battery on and power on the voltmeter. This will display the voltage of your battery.


How to Check 36V Battery Voltage at Charge Port

To test the charge port voltage of your 36V battery pack, first open the dust cover on the underside of the battery. Next, power on the battery pack. Then, grab the positive and negative leads of the voltmeter. The positive will enter through the middle of the port and the negative lead (black) will be pressed against the sidewall of the port. Turn on the voltmeter to display the current voltage.


How to Check 48V Pedego Battery Voltage at Charge Port

To test the charge port voltage of your 48V battery pack, first open up the dust cover. Next, take the positive (red) and negative (black) leads from your voltmeter and place them in your charge port. The positive lead will enter terminal 1 and the negative lead will enter terminal 2. The terminals are indicated on the charge port. Turn on your battery and then turn on the voltmeter to display your current voltage.
