Keeping Your TK1 Folding Electric Trike in Top Shape

This sleek and compact three-wheeler offers unbeatable stability, powerful electric pedal assist, and a host of convenient features. To keep your TK1 performing at its peak for years to come, follow these simple maintenance tips.

Battery Care

The lithium battery pack is the heart of your electric trike. Proper battery care and charging habits will ensure maximum range and longevity:

  • Charge the battery after every ride using the supplied smart charger. Lithium batteries perform best with regular charging cycles as recommended by Battery University.
  • Store the battery in a cool, dry place between 50-77°F if storing long-term. Avoid extreme heat or freezing temperatures.
  • Unplug once fully charged to avoid overcharging and overheating the cells.

    Handlebar and Brake Inspection

    Regularly inspect the handlebars, brake levers, and cables for any signs of wear, damage or need for adjustment. Catching small issues early prevents bigger safety problems down the road.
    • Check brake pads routinely and replace if worn down.
    • Ensure brake cables have no fraying, kinks or rust that could impede braking performance.
    • Tighten any loose handlebar or brake hardware.

    Tires, Chain, Lights and Folding Mechanism

    Your TK1's tires, chain, lights, and unique folding mechanism all require routine checks before riding:

    • Keep tires properly inflated per the recommended PSI range on the sidewall and check for wear or damage.
    • Clean and lubricate the chain regularly with a bike-specific lube for smooth, quiet shifting.
    • Test headlights, taillights, and turn signals before nighttime rides as recommended by NHTSA.
    • Wipe down the folding joints and hinges. Apply a small amount of lightweight lubricant to ensure smooth folding.
          With just a few simple maintenance steps, your Mooncool TK1 Folding Electric Trike will keep you cruising comfortably and safely for countless urban and outdoor adventures. Happy riding from the Mooncool crew!
