A sign of an afternoon where someone would love to stay home rather than going out is the one where they see the heat haze. Ofcourse, who likes the afternoon heat? But, little do they know that, apart from their skin, hair and their health being affected from the harsh sun rays, their vehicle also is being affected equally.
Now, talking about the BG C12 electric scooters and their maintenance during those sunny days!, let’s be honest the e- scooter is designed to cater to the needs of Indians, offering excellent paint quality and resilience against strong sun rays. But that doesn’t mean you don’t take extra care of your all-weather proof e-scooter during summers right? Afterall, Indians are all about extra!
As an electric scooter owner, it is crucial to ensure proper maintenance during the days with hot weather. This blog will provide you with four essential tips to help you keep your BG C12 in optimal condition throughout the months with sunny afternoons.
Keep Your Battery Cool:
While your BG C12’s battery will never lose its cool, it’s important you maintain the vehicle’s regulated temperature through easy safety measures.
The BG C12 is equipped with a cooling fan near the battery to regulate its temperature during high temperature climates. However, you should still take precautions to avoid excessive heat buildup. Park your scooter in shaded areas whenever possible to prevent direct exposure to the sun. Additionally, avoid overcharging the battery, as high temperatures can accelerate the aging process and reduce its overall lifespan.
Regularly Inspect Tyre Pressure:
Maintaining the suggested PSI is an important thing during every season, but during sunny days, it’s a crucial thing to maintain the tyre pressure. The high temperatures can cause fluctuations in tire pressure, leading to safety risks and decreased efficiency.
Check the tyre pressure of your BG C12 regularly and ensure it matches the recommended specifications. Adequate tire pressure not only improves the scooter’s performance but also enhances handling and stability.
Clean and Protect the Paint:
Yes, we all have seen gates and doors that are painted and exposed to direct sunlight and also seen the paint bubbles appearing on them. But, good news. This damage is just limited to the gates and doors and good quality vehicles don’t face the same issues.
Although the BG C12 boasts glossy high-quality paint that resists sun damage, it is still essential to clean and protect it from the harmful sun rays. Use a gentle soap and water solution to clean the scooter’s exterior, removing any dirt, dust, or grime that may have accumulated. Apply a protective layer of wax or a specialized coating to safeguard the paint from UV rays and maintain its vibrant appearance.
Plan your trips wisely.
When the temperature reaches up to 40 degrees in some parts of India, it is essential to plan your trips according to the state of charge, the distance to travel and the climatic conditions. Avoid taking journeys if you are unsure about the effect of heat on you and reschedule your journey to the evening or whenever possible.
As a responsible BG C12 electric scooter owner, it is crucial to prioritize maintenance to ensure optimal performance and longevity. By following these four essential tips you can enjoy a trouble-free and enjoyable riding experience throughout the summer season.
Remember, a well-maintained electric scooter is not only more reliable but also more efficient, contributing to a sustainable and eco-friendly mode of transportation.
