    Winter or cold weather battery storage

    Anyone have any advice or helpful tips for battery storage for +30 days! Should the battery be completely drained of power? Should it just be shelved to diminish power over time? Should a charge be administered periodically? Any tips would be gratefully appreciated, thanx:rolleyes:.

    Bungees might work well. Don't want to burn the paint. Thanx! The batteries are shrink wrapped together and I do utilize flexible foam sheets inside the sling. Will probably try to secure it to the rear rack. Since riding time here in Ohio is almost at an end. Winter is coming:rolleyes:

    Really like the bike, even from the start, have not had any really long rides(4-10 miles).

This setup was put together in July...

    Sometimes minds think alike. Viewed your pix of your auxiliary battery set up. In order to facilitate the use of the e-motor on my bike I attached a sling type hanger to carry the battery a friend made for me. But it is not as secure as I would like it. There is a lot of play when I ride...
