What should I pay attention to when riding an electric vehicle on a rainy day?


In recent days, the weather is often rainy, and electric vehicles are now a means of transportation for many citizens. When it rains, it really brings a lot of trouble to the people who ride electric vehicles. Sometimes electric vehicles will still be "tempered" and sometimes there will be strikes, telling you a few tricks to pay attention to when riding an electric vehicle in the rain.

Do not wade lightly

Important parts of electric motors, controllers, batteries, etc. are generally waterproofed. Under normal circumstances, it does not matter if they are wet by rain, but this does not mean that electric vehicles can run in water at will. Don't make a fortune when you encounter a place where the water is serious, you should still try to bypass it.

If you must pass through, you should try to choose some pavement with shallow water, and the depth of water should not exceed half of the wheel, because the motor of the electric vehicle is generally located in the middle of the wheel center of the rear wheel. Once the motor gets wet or enters water, it is very likely to cause a series of problems such as the speaker not sounding, the brakes failing, and the controller not working properly.

Dry immediately after rain

When storing an electric vehicle, it is best to remove the battery and place it indoors. After the electric car is exposed to rain, do not rush into the battery to connect the power. This may cause a short circuit. After heavy rain, the electric vehicle can be dried in a ventilated place. Before inserting the battery into the power supply and starting it, the battery and the connection socket should be wiped clean with a rag or paper towel to avoid the situation of power connection.

Chain coup to remove rust

If the electric car chain is rusted after rain, you can first wipe off the rust spots with a cleaning agent for cleaning the kitchen, and then wash it with diesel, so that the rust can be easily removed. In addition, you can also buy some castor seeds, peel off the shell, wrap them with a fine flannel, etc., and use it to wipe the electric car, which can make the wheels and spokes bright and clean, and also play a certain role in rust
