TIPS - Do you need to charge it before powering it on?

No need to full cycle your ElecHive

The ElecHive has been charged and discharged for two full cycles before shipping, so there's no need to do it yourself after all.

Many believe that all battery products should be charged to 100% to maximize their usable capacity before they are used, so they imagine it will be the same with ElecHive. Although ElecHive doesn't need that, you can still do it on your own.

It normally comes with 70% capacity. You can first charge it up to 100% power. It is also best to use its charge until 0% is reached to maximize the usable capacity of the battery product.

It was subsequently recharged to 100%. But after those steps, it's OK to use the battery as you wish. But clearly, switching to the 90% capacity option is recommended to extend its capacity.

    Hi ElecHive team, what is your opinion regarding the optimum charging of lithium-ion batteries? I have read in many places on the web that extreme states of charge shorten the lifespan of lithium batteries, and that charging to a maximum of 80% and never letting the charge fall below 40% is optimum for long life. I think this is impractical but I’m wondering if you think there is any truth to this. I think the idea is that both the anode and the cathode actually lose some of their electric potential while fully charged or fully discharged.

    Hi I have noticed on my ElecHive that when I charge it it stays on 21% for 8 hours then jump to 62% or thereabouts for the rest of the charge and goes on charging the battery symbol goes up as you would expect when discharging a battery symbol comes down correctly every match in the screen but on the charging up nothing shows and tell your way over half charging is this a normal feature works fine other than that thanks Andy
