Electric Bike Lithium Ion Battery
- Oct 11, 2018-
Lithium Ion batteries are the better of the two electric bike battery options. Lithium Ion batteries are lighter and last a much longer time, around 3-5 years before losing significant capacity. The most common type of lithium ion battery for electric bikes is a LiFePO4 or lithium iron phosphate battery. This is generally the best battery you can get on an electric bike. Although lithium-ion batteries are much lighter and last much longer, they are also much more expensive. LiFePO4 ebike batteries are often more than twice the price of an equivalent power SLA battery. In our professional opinion, a lithium Ion battery is a must have on an electric bike and are well worth the extra cost since they last so much longer.
