Taking care of the battery is essential for your Mapit to work properly. Here you go some tips to keep your device’s battery level.

Hopping on the motorbike and controlling the routes travelled over the day is really useful. Thanks to Mapit you can track your motorbike’s  exact location and get alerts if someone moves it! In order to take profit of these features you need your Mapit to have a good battery level.

But…do you really know the habits on how to maintain the device’s battery so it works properly?

Mind the temperature!

We recommend the motorbike to be placed somewhere with a temperature between -20ºC and 55ºC. The device needs to keep an adequate temperature since it has a 1800 mAh lithium battery.

In order to avoid unusual download peaks, we should avoid the motorbike to have a long exposure to the sun, specially in the summer months. In between June and August temperatures can surpass 40ºC in many places of our country. So be careful!

The longer you ride, the better!

Try to hit the road often. The device will charge during the route time, not considering the kilometers. In other words, If you ride your motorbike 5 kilometers in 30 minutes, the Mapit device will get the same charge as if it was 20 kilometers in 30 minutes.

The longer in time driven, the higher the charge. Hence, it will will hold the “stand by” mode longer.

Using the motorbike between 2-2.5h a week would be ideal for the Mapit to always keep its battery level at the same level.

Take care the battery level

Last but not least, we recommend the battery to be above 15-20%. In order for the Mapit to work properly (with its features like movement alerts, route tracking or the location service) we recommend the battery level to be above these values.

If you follow these steps, the Mapit’s battery level will hold, so you  will have control over your motorbike without worries.
