How to maximise your ORA charge?
- Maintain your charge - try to charge up regularly as this helps improve the battery health and its lifespan
- Avoid rapid charging - if you don’t need to charge up quickly, opt for slow charging to improve the battery health
- Maintain your car - ensuring your car is properly maintained and free from unnecessary weight like pumping up your tyres
- Reduce the accessory use - cutting the use of the air-con and heated seats will give you the most out of your battery
- Avoid extreme cold and heat - on average, the best temperature to drive in is around 21 to 22 degrees. When possible, avoid driving in cold and hot weather
- Avoid erratic driving - don’t brake at the last minute and accelerate too quickly - drive as smoothly as possible for the best results
- Set the climate - whilst charging up your Funky Cat, set your climate to make the most of the charge
Some are harder than others like driving at the optimum temperatures as you need to drive when you need to drive but making an effort when you can will help maximise your charge
