Plug the device connector (3) of the power cable into the device socket (2) on the charger. Connect the power cable (country-specific) to the mains. Use only the supplied input connection: standard AC power cord ((3) in the diagram) when connecting to the household electrical supply. Switch the battery off and remove it from its holder on the eBike. When doing so, read and observe the operating instructions of the battery. Ensure the battery is placed on clean surfaces only. Avoid getting dirt, e.g. sand or soil, in the charging socket and contacts in particular. Plug the charging connector (5) of the charger into the socket (6) on the battery.

Charging the battery when inserted in the bicycle

  1. Charging connector
  2. Socket for charging connector
  3. Charging socket cover

Switch the battery off. Clean the cover of the charg-ing socket (7). Avoid getting dirt, e.g. sand or soil, in the charging socket and contacts in particular. Lift the cover of the charging socket (7) and plug the charging connector (5) into the charging socket (6).

  • There is a risk of fire due to the charger heating up during charging. Ensure the battery on the bike is completely dry and placed on a fireproof surface before charging. If this is not possible, remove the battery from the holder and charge it in a more suitable location. When doing so, read and observe the operating instructions of the battery.

Charging process
The charging process begins as soon as the charger is connected to the battery or charging socket on the bike and to the mains.
Note: The charging process is only possible when the temperature of the eBike battery is within the permit-ted charging temperature range.
Note: The drive unit is deactivated during the charging process. The battery can be charged with or without the onboard computer. When charging without the onboard computer, the charging progress can be observed via the battery charge indicator. When the onboard computer is connected, a charging notification appears on the display. The state of charge is displayed by the battery charge indicator (8) on the battery and by the bars on the onboard computer. The LEDs on the battery charge indicator (8) will flash during the charging process. Each solid illuminated LED represents approximately 20 % of the charging capacity. The flashing LED indicates the next 20 %currently charging. Once the eBike battery is fully charged, the LEDs extinguish immediately and the onboard computer is switched off. The charging process is terminated. The state of charge can be displayed for 5 seconds by pressing the on/off button (9) on the eBike battery. Disconnect the charger from the mains and the battery from the charger. When the battery is disconnected from the charger, the battery is automatically switched off.
Note:

If you have charged the battery on the bike, carefully close the charging socket (6) with the cover (7) after charging, so that no dirt or water can get in. If the charger is not disconnected from the battery after charging, the charger will switch itself back on after a few hours, check the state of charge of the battery and begin the charging process again if necessary.

Maintenance/cleaning

WARNING

  • Do not open any of the components. Service should only be carried out at an authorized Bosch eBike dealer. Failure to follow the above warning can cause death or serious injury. Refer to your bicycle manual or component manual for all non-Bosch drive system components.
