Comfortable and Convenient – Charge your AMPERE Electric Scooter Battery at home with ease

For a very long time, the concerns of range anxiety have been associated with electric vehicles or EVs. Fears around being stranded by an exhausted battery with no power source is one of the major reason why people are hesitant about electric vehicles. Range anxiety has been a common barrier for consumers around the world. One of the biggest myths about driving electric vehicles is unexpectedly running out of power, with no chance of a recharge to get back home.

India is still in a nascent stage of adapting to electric vehicles. The number of charging stations and facilities is small but growing. With a higher demand for electric vehicles, automobile manufacturers & various other players are now investing in making charging stations accessible to consumers. But, thanks to innovation in battery technology, electric vehicles can now be charged at home or office, all you need is a normal power source. Ampere electric harnessed this technology almost a decade ago and is playing a critical role in providing clean & affordable electric vehicles that mobilize thousands of smart EV users every day in the area of personal transportation. The batteries on Ampere e-bikes come with long warranty so that you can enjoy a seamless ownership experience. And it goes without saying, they are completely safe. Each bike and battery is tested fully and certified for quality and safety standards before dispatch. Now, you are empowered to recharge at home without having to worry about rising petrol prices or long queues at filling stations!

Interestingly, according to a report by MoveInSync, Indians travel less than 35 kms every day. So given that range has been one of the biggest hindrances for electric vehicles, it is certainly not a big issue as it once seemed. For covering shorter journeys, electric vehicles can, in fact, be the best option for getting around– you can commute and drive in an urban area to cover lower distances.
There are a number of scenarios wherein charging your electric vehicle at home can prove to be very helpful. If you use an ICE vehicle, driving to a petrol pump to only find a big line of other drivers waiting to fuel up can be a common affair. But, with Ampere e-bikes, all you need is a socket, electricity and the bike charger to recharge your bike. In simple words these e-scooters can be charged anywhere – office, residential complexes, shopping complexes or at any upcoming charging station. Life is more easy with such simple charging process & all those prudent buyers who understand this tend to make huge savings from the economic efficiency of Ampere electric vehicles.

Manish Naik, an Ampere customer for over a year now recently shared his experience. Before buying he too had fears around battery charging & running out of charge on his way to an important meeting or getting stranded in the middle of nowhere. Now he joins thousands of customers who charge these vehicles easily at their convenience. In fact, the extra hour he saves up on recharging every other day has given him more time to pursue his hobbies! Naina Rawat , another Ampere customer can’t stop raving about her new Ampere Reo. Being able to recharge her bike overnight at home has made her day-to-day life easier to manage.

Since residential charging is inexpensive and convenient, most drivers prefer to do their charging at home. Every residence has this electric supply which can be very easily extended to parking lot. Today the electric scooter is much like any other gadget at home. You buy & create an easy charge point near the area of installation or usage. In a full battery charge done in couple of hours one spends hardly few units & hence overall expenditures to run the vehicle is significantly lesser than the cost of the petrol filled in any IC vehicle. This allows the driver to make the most of easily available residential electricity rates. And since electricity rates tend to be more stable than non-renewable fuel alternatives like petrol or diesel, batteries can be charged at home, saving money and time. The new Ampere vehicles are designed with new dashboard to share real time basis with users the battery health & enable us to determine the distance one can go very easily.

A survey conducted by Feedback Consulting found that 78% of CNG car users spend up to 30 minutes to recharge their cars every day during peak hours. The survey found that 78% of these CNG car users would prefer a re-charging solution in the comfort of their homes at night. One crucial advantage which electric vehicles have over conventional vehicles is that the fuel source here (electricity) is available at their home or offices and one need not always have to go out and get it from a public fuel retaining center, revealed the study.
Making a move from a conventional ICE to an electric vehicle requires a paradigm shift in the way we recharge. Think of it as opportunity charging when out and plugging in to completely charge when at home. So, now you can recharge your vehicle from the comfort of your home or office, without having to wait in line and with little to no interference to your daily schedule.

 

With this small recharge at your convenience, one can really go uninterrupted & live life to fullest.

Fun fact: Charging an electric vehicle is similar to charging a mobile phone. You power it during the day if you need to and give it a full charge overnight at home.

Things to remember:

  • Keep a track of your EV’s range. It’s better to know nearest charging points in and around your daily commute which can be used if you forget charging this at night. So, if you fear running out of juice, you can easily power up on the go. Remember, electric vehicles never suddenly run out of charge. They will give constant reminders of the remaining estimated range. Ampere electric is coming up with charging points across the widespread after sales network in the country.
  • It is recommended to not charge the battery when it is half discharged and keep this option only in case of emergencies. This could deteriorate the lifespan and performance of the battery overtime.
  • Avoid overcharging your batteries since this too can affect performance. Lead Acid battery should not be charged for more than 10 hours and Li-Ion battery should not be charged for more than 8 hours.
  • Check out the warranty of the battery in the Ampere vehicles. The stylish new entrant Zeal come with 3 years of warranty so that you can enjoy a seamless bike ownership experience.
