All Raleigh electric bikes use lithium ion batteries, these are very popular among technologies and are often found in laptops and phones. They offer many advantages:

  • They are lighter than many other rechargeable batteries of a similar size.

  • They are great at holding their charge, a lithium ion battery pack only loses about 5% of its charge per month in comparison to 20% loss for NiMH batteries.

  • They have no memory effect. You don't need to completely discharge the battery before recharging.

  • They are able to handle hundreds of charge and discharge cycles.

Lithium ion batteries contain lithium ion cells, they may be cylindrical batteries that look very similar to regular AA batteries.
