Structure and function of the batteries at Stingray Motors

Electric scooters and electric choppers draw their drive energy from rechargeable batteries. Stingray Motors relies on lithium-ion batteries for high energy density, light weight and optimal driving performance.

Not only the wattage, but also the voltage is crucial for the performance and driving time of a battery. The ampere current, measured by watts divided by volts, plays an important role here.

The capacity of a battery is measured in ampere-hours (Ah), which represents the amount of electricity stored. Higher capacity means longer usage time. Watt hours (Wh) measure the energy that a battery can deliver under certain conditions and are calculated from voltage times capacity.

Average range and structure of the lithium-ion battery

The range of e-scooters varies depending on driving style, rider weight, road surface, temperature and speed. At Stingray Motors we rely on lithium-ion batteries with many small cells that consist of conductive layers, cathode, anode and electrolyte.

Charging and discharging: lithium-ion battery life

When charging, voltage is applied, causing lithium ions to migrate from the anode to the cathode. When discharging, this process reverses and the energy is released. Depending on the treatment, a lithium-ion battery can last between 800 and more than 1200 charging cycles, which corresponds to around 25,000 km.

The aging process occurs gradually and the performance of a battery decreases over time. A charge cycle represents a complete charge and discharge of the battery, and the lifespan depends on the chemical composition.

Stingray Motors is committed to high-quality batteries and transparently informs customers about the structure, function and lifespan of our lithium-ion batteries for a long-lasting e-mobility experience.
