Batteries

Our lifestyle and e-bike road range of products all use deep discharge battery packs, that are specially designed for high current drain applications. All of the e-bike range and the UM70 have detachable batteries for ease of charging. One of the decisions you make when you buy an electric bike or electric powered motorcycle is what kind of battery you should opt for. Different kinds of batteries have different performance characteristics and costs to own and operate.

How far can an electric bike go on one charge?

Similar to conventionally fuelled cars, EV range depends on a lot of factors: model, weather, terrain and road conditions, and driving style. The range in Urban Mover’s electric bikes can vary from 20 – 60 km from each charge dependant on the model.

Do I have to worry about a battery 'memory' loss?

No. The "memory loss" that you've noticed with batteries for some consumer electronics (laptops, cellular phones, etc.) is usually associated with nickel-cadmium (NiCad) batteries. Electric bike batteries don't have this problem, whether they're lead-acid, nickel-metal-hydride, or lithium-based. You can recharge an EV whenever you want, for however long you want, and it generally won't affect the batteries storage capacity - no matter what charge level they're at when you start.
