FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

How long does it take to charge the batteries?

Usually it takes 1 - 2 hours for an 85% charge and up to 3 hours for a full charge.

 

Do your batteries have a “Memory”?

No. We use lead acid batteries and they do not have a memory like other types of batteries. It is recommended however to fully charge the battery (usually over night) every 4 or 5 charges to keep the battery at its peak performance. NI-MH (Nickel-Metal Hydride) batteries are the only ones that have a “memory”.

 

When the battery runs low, will it die right away and I will be stuck out in the field?

No. Let me explain. The batteries we use are Lead Acid batteries and have regeneration abilities if you let them sit for a few minutes. Once the battery dies, then let it sit turned off for about 5 to 7 minutes. By sitting idle, the battery will recharge itself enough to get another mile or so of power. This can be repeated many times to get you back to a charger or on a trailer. Example, if you attempt to start your car and run the battery dead, if you wait about 5 min, you will have what seems like full power for a short time.

 

Do I need to change the oil?

No. Unlike internal combustion engines, no oil is needed for the engine. Electric motors replace the gas engine and use self lubricating bearings.

 

How long will a battery last before it needs to be replaced?

The batteries we use typically can last up to 10 years. Life span is related to the owners charging discipline.

 

How rugged is the battery and electric motor?

Surprisingly rugged. We have found the motors and batteries to be as rugged if not more so than the engines they replace. The batteries we use in most applications are military grade.

 

What is the typical maintenance cost and interval?

Wear parts will need to be replaced such as brushes and bearings at about 500 hours for higher performance units and up to 4000 for the general work units. This equates to several years in most cases. Typical part and labor costs range from $125 to $250.

 

What if I drive through high water?

Even if the unit you have purchased is not rated for submersion, as long as the vehicle is removed from the water it will return to normal operation. Note: If a non-submersible vehicle has been in water, it will require maintenance at your earliest convenience.

 

Will my Electric Vehicle have the same performance as its gas counterpart?

Typically yes. Different vehicles have different attributes.
