battery operated cycles

Postby engee » Fri, 16 Jan 2009 12:29 pm

New here and have been seeing lots of battery operated cycles for transport.Thinking of buying one but some say the battery is short lived and will have to buy a new one and these cycles are a bit expensive ....look forward to hearing more abt this.
Many thanx.

what's your definition of short lived? how long the charge will last or the lifetime of the battery? generally, in a hot country, rechargeble battery wont last as long when compare to a colder country.

batteries are expensive if they are not the common type. best use human powered. :)

Yeah, but the problem with those is that they have to registered just like a normal motorbike/scooter. Electric bicycles don't as they are limited to just 200 watts of power.
