The battery is an essential component of an e-bike as it plays a crucial role in determining the bike's performance. When choosing bike batteries, consider the following factors:
The most important factor to consider when choosing an e-bike battery is its capacity, as a higher capacity means a faster and longer ride. If you plan to go on long off-road rides or conquer bigger hills, a high-capacity battery is a must.
Very very very imply put: Voltage determines speed, Amp hours decides range, and Amp hours (ah) x Voltage (v) = Watt hours (Wh)
What's the capacity of standard e-bikes? 300 ~ 500Wh is what people generally have but A1 has a capacity of 1920Wh for the Pro version and 960Wh for the Standard version. Massive!
2. Water Resistance
If you live in a rainy area or enjoy riding over puddles and streams, water resistance should be a factor in your purchase decision. The A1 battery is IPX7 waterproof, meaning it can withstand being soaked in 3-feet deep water for 30 minutes.
3. Battery Management System
A Battery Management System (BMS) is critical for battery safety and health. With BMS, A1's battery enjoys prolonged battery life and safe and efficient charging & discharging. Additionally, the BMS can monitor critical parameters such as battery temperature and communicate the information to the ASYNC App.
Convenience is also a factor to consider when choosing an e-bike battery. The A1 battery allows for easy removal and charging. The battery, with a capacity, is heavier than standard batteries you find on the market, but a handle on top of the battery makes it easier to lift and move.
In A Nutshell
The higher your battery's capacity, the more riding options you have, and the more relaxed you feel. A1's visual appeal is not achieved by sacrificing its performance. Whether you are a city commuter who is lazy to charge your bike or an off-road adventurer who enjoys the thrill of conquering hills and traversing streams, A1's performance will suffice.
