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.
