■ Withstand frequent and instantaneous high current shocks
This is because, in the rental scenario, the delivery staff usually does not care about the swappable battery. external physical damage of swappable battery is very common, such as falling on the ground, collision with other hard objects, because it is not their private property. Therefore, the battery needs to be manufactured with a stronger case to protect it.
The second is swappable battery need to withstand frequent instantaneous high current impact. Takeout delivery staffs, for example, often have to speed up and slow down for short periods of time when riding motorcycles, especially when they are accelerating to catch orders, pedalling down steep hills, etc., rather than being as smooth as cars (which are smoother, because in part power batteries have more capacity). This situation is reflected in the battery, that is, every time you step on the accelerator, the battery discharge rate is very easy to reach the limit, obviously will greatly affect the battery life.
21.How do you choose a swappable battery manufacturer? What are TYCORUN ENERGY’s strengths?
① As motorcycle battery is power battery, the first point needed to pay attention is the safety of power battery
② The power battery is very demanding for the PACK technology, and the power battery in the battery swapping station is even more demanding. The battery in the battery swap station is used by many people, and the usage habits and methods are different, so the product quality requirements are higher.
③ Swappable batteries requires at least three-level waterproof IP65, TYCORUN ENERGYbatteries are IP66 waterproof, and the swap cabinet is also rain proof for 24-hour.

⑤ Electric motorcycle battery swap station system is a high investment project, the battery part is the highest cost in the whole system, so the battery need to be cost-effective. It is important to find a professional lithium battery production factory to ensure the cost performance of the battery and technical professionalism.
⑥ For a complete motorcycle battery swap station solution, the fewer suppliers the operator can cooperate with, the better. It is the best if the suppliers are the same one. Because the core three parts of the battery swap station: battery swap cabinet, battery and software platform system need to be connected to the protocol, if any supplier does not cooperate or has no sense of responsibility, the whole project will be affected. TYCORUN ENERGY is able to provide a full range of battery swap services, ensuring customers do not have to worry about protocol or supplier coordination issues.
