The battery is the most critical, expensive, and the largest component in an electric car. Depending on how you treat your electric vehicle, such as the options you make about your battery and your battery charging habits directly determines the longevity of your vehicle.
- Keep your battery charge between 20% and 80% whenever possible. Frequent full charge to the battery degrades it more quickly. Leaving the battery at a low charging state for an extended time also is a negative influence on it.
- Extreme temperature is a bad factor for the battery. EV parked in the hot sun for several hours should be strongly avoided. Extreme cold also temporarily reduces the battery range.
- For electric cars, Kia provides a battery warranty of 3 to 10 years. The coverage of Kia’s battery warranty varies, so we recommend to check our warranty page or contact an authorized Kia dealer to find out detailed information of battery warranty.
Technically... batre Lithium, dan NiMh itu optimal operating temp nya di 5 ~ 35 C
klo di luar range tsb, degrade more quickly.
prinsip kerjanya mirip lah ya sama batre laptop atau gadget, yg udah pakai Lithium.
Area high-land spt: Bandung, Malang, Batu, dsb nya ini cocok banget pk EV.
Batre jg bisa lbh awet, dibanding dipakai di kota" di Indonesia yg sejajar dgn ketinggian laut.
Hopefully di masa depan, ada teknologi batre yg lbh robust terhadap extreme temp
(terutama buat di Indonesia, yg rata" ambience temp nya bisa up to 40 C klo terik macet di siang hari)
Jd... issue range, durability anxiety bisa minimal lah, dan lbh menarik.
not just EV powah kickin yooo.
