Not following the proper recommended charging sequence may lead to charging problems. Incorrect charging may result in a battery failing to charge and in extreme cases can result in a damaged and irreparable battery. Batteries damaged through misuse are not covered under warranty.
Following the correct charging sequence will ensure best performance. The proper charging sequence is explained in the Gocycle Owner’s Manual. An updated version is included below for reference.
|When fully charged, unplug the charger and return the battery to Sleep Mode.
DO NOT LEAVE THE BATTERY ON CHARGE FOR MORE THAN 24 HOURS.
*Gocycle motor must be activated for long enough to reduce the battery level by at least 1 LED
Open the rubber charging port cover, as shown.
While holding open the rubber charging port cover, insert the charging lead as shown.
The charger light will turn orange to indicate charging.
Returning the Battery to Sleep Mode
BEST PRACTICE: The Gocycle will use power when stationary and in Operation Mode, or if left on charge after charging has completed. This will drain the battery. Best practice is to enter Sleep Mode to conserve battery—when not in use and the battery is fully charged.
NOTE: the battery will never enter Sleep Mode if the charger is plugged in. To enter Sleep Mode, first disconnect the charger.
