eFoil Battery Storage

2022-01-19

Everything you need to know about storing your Lift eFoil lithium ion battery.

It’s winter time, and that means for many of us not in tropical locations or dedicated enough for extensive wetsuit riding, your eFoil might be spending more time in storage than the warmer months. Storing and caring for your eFoil battery during periods of inactivity is simple, but important, so we’ve prepared this guide below.

Storage

Store your eFoil battery in a cool, dry location. The ideal storage state is at 30-50% of charge. This will lead to the longest life for your battery.

Allowable temp: -10 to 40C (14 to 104F)

Ideal storage temp: 5 to 25C (41 to 77F)

Discharge

As with all lithium ion batteries, the Lift eFoil battery will slowly lose charge over time while it is stored. If stored for a long (roughly 9 months to several years) time with use, the battery can become over-discharged and lose the ability to be charged at all. To prevent this, and for the longest life of you battery, the battery should be plugged into a charger and charged until reaches 30-50% every 6 months.

Wake Up

To wake up your battery after a long use, follow normal charging instructions, there are no special changes after a long period of inactivity. Remember to first connect the data connector, and then the twist lock, and then plug the charger into the wall.
