HYBRID BATTERY SERVICING AND CONDITIONING
In this video, I will be talking about how to extend the life of your hybrid battery at a professional level.
Hi, This is kaveen from Lucid Technologies. In a previous video titled “how to extend the life of your hybrid battery” I have explained 11 steps that you can take to extend the life of your hybrid battery without any professional help. However, in most cases, when using the vehicle in countries that are subjected to harsh climatic and driving conditions such as Sri Lanka, professional help is also needed.
The hybrid battery maintenance is a two part procedure that we recommend you do every year or 50,000km, whichever comes first.
The Hybrid battery service is the first part of this procedure and it involves the following steps.
Step 1:Cleaning the battery cooling fan and the gap between each battery module so that the battery cooling system will operate at its peak.
Step 2: removing any corrosion on the copper contacts between the battery module terminals so that they can get charged and discharged at the required rate.
Step 3: Fixing any issues that exist in the electronic components of the battery assembly.
The battery service alone will not extend the life of your hybrid battery. Now this brings us to the second part of the maintenance procedure. That is: The battery modules themselves need to be conditioned in order to restore their health percentage to an acceptable level of over 90%. We at Lucid technologies achieve this by taking each of the battery modules through a charging and discharging cyclic process under very strict control parameters using a proprietary computer based battery conditioning system.
Imagine going to the gym to improve your strength and if you don’t exercise enough, your muscle strength will not improve up to its full potential whereas if you overly exert yourself, you will get injured. Similarly, if the battery modules are not cycled using precision software and hardware, they could either not improve to the required level or deteriorate even further.
At Lucid Technologies, we assume responsibility for your hybrid battery after performing this maintenance procedure by providing an official 1 year warranty on your entire battery pack.
Please note that the health level can only be restored to 90% or more, using the conditioning technology, if the existing health level is at 60% in the least. Anything below that needs to be replaced. If you have the misfortune of getting any warning indicators on the dashboard that are related to a faulty hybrid battery, you would have to spend a lot of money on either rebuilding or replacing it. Therefore, performing this maintenance on time, will help you to save money.
