36V, 12AH “Bottle” Battery
This “water bottle” style of battery mounts to your frame. Most size medium and up frames can accommodate this pack, and smaller frames can often be made to work. The advantage of a frame-mounted pack means that the battery’s weight is both low and centered on the bike – exactly where you want it to be!
This battery uses the latest Panasonic 18650 cylindrical cells, the very same used in the Tesla Model S.
The pack is weatherproof, and includes a light-up battery gauge so that you can track your battery’s charge throughout your ride.
The battery and 100% charger come with a 1-year warranty. In past experience with packs of this type, this battery will reliably last for 2 years, and at the end of that period will still perform at about 70-80% of it’s original capacity. Its total capacity will continue to gradually decline after that point, although it will still likely be a usable pack for 3-4 years with proper care.
Purchase an 80% charger to double the battery’s lifespan to 5+ years!
This battery takes ~6 hours to charge from full discharge with the stock 2-amp aluminum-case charger.
This pack is only compatible with the front and 350-watt mid drive system.
