First Time Charging We recommend charging the battery for 6-8 hours on the first charge. This will help condition the lithium-ion cells for optimal performance. Atom Alpha’s Battery Atom Alpha’s battery is designed to be charged while mounted and not recommended to be removed without proper skills, training, and tools. Atom Alpha’s battery pack is also not designed to be swappable as it increases risk of electric shock, premature degradation of battery lifecycle and performance, and potential dirt getting stuck in the connections. Charging the Bike When the charging process starts, the charger LED turns red. Once the battery is charged, the LED turns green. Remove the charger cable from the battery charging port. Remember to put the protective cap back onto the battery charging port after charging to protect it from dirt and moisture. Unplug the charger from the socket. Always make sure there is plenty of ventilation and a dry, fireproof environment for the charger and follow these operating instructions. Do not leave the battery connected to the active charger for more than 8 hours. Do not leave the charger connected to a socket for more than 48 hours. Charge the battery and use Atom Alpha at least once every 30 days. Do not store Atom Alpha for more than 24 hours with an empty battery. This prevents a deep discharge with irreparable consequences from occurring. Do not use the charger if the charger, main cable or connector cable have any visible signs of damage. After being charged, if the battery remains connected to the charger, it will turn on and off again in short spurts of green light. This is not a defect. It simply indicates that individual battery cells are being slowly charged. Nevertheless, make sure that the battery is not connected to the charger for more than 48 hours.
