Nowadays, electromobility is a big topic in China. Cities like Shanghai and Beijing thrive with electrical mopeds, so-called e-scooters. They offer cheap means of transportation if compared to cars and are more flexible. With a ban of conventional scooters, their numbers are rapidly growing.
As such e-scooters are quite cheap, the battery has become the most expensive component. By understanding and improving battery lifetime of Li-ion cells, the replacement cost can be reduced. By applying a lifetime minimizing operation and charging strategy, the battery can be operated under 'low-aging' conditions and lieftime can be increased.
