How to Choose Batteries and Get the Most Out of E Bike Batteries

Electric bike batteries are one of the most important components of an ebike. Here’s a complete guide to choose electric bicycle batteries for electric bikes and how to use your battery in terms of battery life and performance.

As we all know, Lead-acid Batteries (SLA /AGM /GEL) are gradually replaced by Lithium-ion (Li-ion) Batteries. There is a comparison between these two kinds of batteries for you to the right batteries.

Lead-acid batteries:

  1. Sensitive to operation environment
  2. Shorter life than Lithium ion batteries,1/4-1/2 as the latter
  3. Three times larger than lithium batteries
  4. Having much less usable capacity than lithium batteries
  5. Poisonous, pollutant and hard to recycle.

Li-ion batteries:

    1. Safe and tolerant to abuse
    2. NCM:800-1000 times of cycle life; LiFePO4:2000-5000 times;
    3. LTO:20000-30000 times super long life
    4. Compact and light-weight
    5. Capable of 100% DOD cycle
    6. Environment-friendly

Therefore, KOK power is dedicated to the development of lithium ion batteries for ebikes to replace Lead-acid batteries. Nowadays Lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries takes up to 90% of the ebike battery market because of its advantages such as lasting longer and generating more power and lighter weight than other batteries.

KOK power’s ebike batteries are more stable and more immune to problems caused by overcharge, damage or abuse. In general, they seem to be ideal for use in high capacity, low power applications – such as electric bikes.

We have made a market survey and ask the bicycle users about what’s their greatest concern:

“Given the conditions of electric bikes look just like ordinary bikes, I guess that some smart manufacturers will come up with some radically cool ideas. I wouldn’t rush into buying one of these electrical bikes until they prove themselves in terms of battery life.”

The best answer is lithium ion battery with the following characteristics:

  1. Proven safety and range;
  2. Higher energy density;
  3. High performance.

After choosing your favorite e bicycle battery, the question is How to Get the Most out of Lithium Electric Bike Batteries

There is one Golden Rule for using batteries: prolonging the life by avoiding over-discharge. Because, in order to increase performance and lifetime of an ebike lithium battery, it is advisable to reduce deep discharge cycles as much as possible. However, sometimes you may forget whether its time to recharge your your ebike battery. No worries! KOK Power Limited have designed different types of smart batteries with bluetooth 4.0 communications for your choice. With blutooth, you can check the SOC (State of Charge) via your mobile APP anytime to remind yourself to recharge the batteries timely.With KOK Power’s high quality bike batteries with bluetooth system, you can read the following parameters of the lithium batteries: battery pack voltage, battery current draw, battery state of charge, battery state of discharge, battery cycles ,battery temperature, remaining capacity, designed capacity, full capacity, average time to empty, average time to full, series number, communication frequency battery curve.

Another way to prolong the life of your battery is to keep it exercised during winter (or any other time when you are not using it). Ebike batteries from KOK power supply batteries with bluetooth communication, that is, you can check the battery status from phone APP to alert you “it’s time for exercise”, both for your ebike and yourself!

Follows are the creative new style ebike batteries form KOK power:

We have E-bike batteries of rear rack,down tube,integrated,fordable and custom models as follows.

We are manufacturer that can custom any E-bike batteries for you.
