What range should I achieve on a single battery charge?
Home » What range should I achieve on a single battery charge?
We see wildly exaggerated claims for mileage on electric bikes. Our 36V X 10Ah & 36V X 16Ah batteries produce 360 or 576 watts of power respectively. So you can work out that a 250 watt motor will be driven less than 1.5 hrs by the 10 Ah battery. 360 divided by 250. In a 50/50 pedal assist situation, you might get 3 hrs cycling (with 100% efficiency). In practice we find that the 10Ah battery return up to 30 miles on medium power pedal assist and customers tell us they often achieve in excess of 50 miles with the larger battery. But it always depends on the variables of wind, terrain and rider strength. Volts X Amps = Watts. So a 36 V X 10 Ah battery has 50% more capacity than a 24 V X 10 Ah battery that are fitted to many cheaper electric bikes.
