Battery

Should I drain the battery before charging?

KBO Bikes use Samsung and Panasonic Lithium-ion batteries. A Li-ion battery can be charged at any time you want. Therefore, your KBO electric bike battery does not have to be completely discharged before it is recharged. 

When your battery completely runs out of juice, you had better recharge it. Even if you want to store the battery away, don't let it drain completely because the battery still needs some energy that will wear down. And if keeping the battery drain for a long time,  it may not be recharged again anymore. The best way is to keep it around that 75 percent range.
