Charging your Rhino battery is really easy.
Step-by-step battery charging guide
First, you'll need to remove it from the bike. To remove your battery:
Insert your battery key and turn to the left in the key hole so it is an "unlocked position"
Find the handle underneath the battery pack
Gently pull the battery out using the handle while the key is in the "unlocked position"
- Find a safe, dry area away from direct sunlight, dirt, or debris to charge the battery (preferably inside)
- Plug the battery into the charger (the charging plug is covered by a protective cover as per the picture below)
- Make sure the power switch on the battery is turned on
- Plug the charger into an appropriate power outlet, ensuring the charging cord does not create a trip hazard. You will see one or more of the bars on the battery light up in red to show the battery is charging
- Charge for the appropriate amount of time. The battery is fully charged when all 4 bars on the battery are green. Charging a battery from empty to fully charged, typically takes 3-7 hours. Never charge the battery for more than 24 hours at a time
- Once fully charged, unplug the charger from the power outlet, then unplug the battery from the charger
- Gently reinsert the battery into your bike. It will lock automatically
