How far a foldable electric bike can go on a single charge depends on at least four factors, including the battery, the motor, the amount of pedals and the terrain.In other words, the range of batteries you need depends on the type of ride you’re planning. If the motor power you plan to use is greater than the pedal power,you will use the battery more quickly and therefore require a larger range. If you’re going to pedal a lot and just use the motor assist on a regular basis, you can use a smaller range of batteries.
A foldable electric bike with relatively little pedal assist has a range of more than 40 miles, while the same bike with more pedal assist has a range of nearly 25 miles.Also consider that an e-bike runs on a relatively large rechargeable battery, and if you’re riding your foldable e-bike regularly charging is a habit you can’t forget.
Rechargeable batteries usually take about four hours to fully charge. If possible, choose a bike that is easy to remove and store the battery at room temperature when not in use.For your folding e-bike, look for about 9 or 10AH batteries. Typically, these batteries can provide a conservative range of about 40 miles without adding significant weight or cost.
