Don’t forget to remove from charging

Due to this, the battery capacity starts decreasing rapidly. Although after the advent of new technologies, the feature of auto cut has started coming in the vehicles, but still it damages the cells of the battery.
Be careful while charging
Experts say that the vehicle should always be removed from charging immediately after the charge is complete, this not only reduces the life of the battery, but also overcharging increases the chances of the battery bloating and catching fire. This is also likely to be the reason behind the incident that took place during the charging of the scooter in Secunderabad.
