The kits are available in 24V, 36V and 48V versions. The most popular operate at 36V with sealed lead acid (SLA) batteries of 7Ah, 12Ah or 20Ah. Most people find the 12Ah to provide the best compromise between performance and weight. We also offer 13 Ah Lithium Ion battery packs which are very lightweight and long lasting. Depending upon conditions, speed, pedal assistance and battery size you can travel from 10-30 miles range with the rechargeable battery pack. Some clients order a second battery pack to double the range.
The twist throttle has a built in battery strength indicator to help you judge the battery condition while riding. The included battery charger has a light indicator to let you know when it is fully recharged. Recharging the battery pack usually takes several hours depending upon how drained they became. The electric kits are street legal in almost all jurisdictions. For battery power the switch must be on and the twist throttle opened. For exercise the rider can pedal at any time whether using the electric motor or not.
