As an avid Aventon ebike owner, you know that nothing is more frustrating than a dead battery when you’re ready to hit the road. If you’re having trouble getting your battery to charge, there are a few things you can try before throwing in the towel. In this post, we’ll explore some common reasons why your Aventon ebike might not be charging, and what you can do about it.
- Check the Battery Connections
First things first, make sure your battery is properly connected to the charger. Sometimes, the battery can get knocked loose while you’re riding or during transport. Double-check that the charger is securely plugged into the wall and the bike, and that the charging port on the battery is clean and free of debris.
- Look for Obvious Signs of Damage
If you notice any visible damage to your battery or charger, such as cracks, dents, or corrosion, it’s likely that the issue lies with the hardware. Unfortunately, you may need to replace your battery or charger if this is the case. Contact Aventon’s customer service for assistance in getting a replacement.
- Check the Battery Level
If your battery is completely drained, it can take a few minutes for the charger to register that it’s charging. Before assuming that the charger is faulty, leave it plugged in for at least 15 minutes to see if it begins to charge. If it still won’t charge, move on to the next step.
- Verify the Charger
If you’ve ruled out the battery connection and visible damage, the issue may be with the charger. Make sure the charger is properly plugged into the wall and the bike, and check for any visible damage. If your charger has an LED indicator light, check to see if it’s on. If the light isn’t on, try using a different outlet to see if the charger will turn on.
- Check the Battery Temperature
Sometimes, extreme temperatures can affect the performance of your battery. If the battery is too hot or too cold, it may not charge properly. Allow the battery to cool down or warm up before attempting to charge it. Make sure the charging temperature is within the specified range for your battery.
- Perform a Factory Reset
If none of the above steps work, you may need to perform a factory reset on your bike’s computer. This will erase any stored data and reset your bike to its default settings. To perform a factory reset, consult your Aventon ebike owner’s manual or contact Aventon customer support.
A non-charging Aventon ebike battery can be a frustrating issue, but don’t panic! By following these troubleshooting steps, you should be able to get to the bottom of the problem and get back to enjoying your ride in no time. If you still can’t get your battery to charge, contact Aventon’s customer service for further assistance. Happy riding!
