  1. Excellent reporting on how to maintain your ebike battery. All ebikers realize that of all the components on an ebike, the durability and power of their battery is of upmost importance. Electric Bike Report should start running battery tests to provide new buyers with durability and length of life reports.

  2. Nice battery report. LEVA trained E-Bike Technicians who have the Advanced LEVA Tool and Test Kit have the capability of measuring the capacity of batteries.

  3. The only bummer is cost ,batteries need to be priced much lower or buy reconditioned batteries because when it goes you better have money to buy another, otherwise the e bike is worthless to me this is one bad reason not to buy an e bike but what I hope is cost will drop in the future

  4. Nice report. Thank you. I live in a city that isb80-90% humidity. I have no idea what to do to store my bike’s battery during winter. Any sugestiones? Thanks

  5. At Orbit City Bikes we have 8 years of eBike experience. Your advice is good and should be followed. The best batteries we have seen in operation are Bosch. We have sold Bosch powered eBikes for 7 years and have yet to replace a battery even though it is now our #1 seller. We have replaced numerous batteries from Reention, Hi-Power, and numerous others over the years. A Bosch powered eBike costs considerably more than eBikes with these other batteries and this is just my experience.

  6. WELL GOOD REPORT, NOW I OWN A RAD CITY E-BIKE WITH SAMSUNG CELLS, SINCE 2018 I HAVE RIDDEN BIKE AT LEAST 3 TIMES A WEEK FOR LAST 3 YEARS, IT IS STORED IN A TEMP. CONTROLLED SHED. AS OF TODAY IT STILL HAS PLENTY OF LIFE LEFT IN IT EVEN AFTER 10000 MILES, I NEVER FULLY DEPLETE IT, IT STAYS PLUGGED IN UNTIL NEXT RIDE, I WILL SAY THAT RAD POWER BIKES BUILDS A SOLID ELECTRONIC SET UP ON THIS BIKE, 5 STARS, ITS NOT BOSCH MOTOR BUT A 750 WATT REGENERATIVE MOTOR WHICH I AM SURE IS ONE REASON THAT THE BATTERY IS HOLDING UP WELL, RAD WERE IS MY DIFFERENT COLOR IN THIS BIKE OTHER THAN BLACK THAT IS NOT A STEP THRU, WONT ANOTHER NOW BUT DIFFERENT COLOR. TAKE CARE OF IT AND IT WILL TAKE CARE OF YOU
