  • What you can do if you need a battery rebuilt (the right way).
  • More information on what classifies a light electric vehicle.
  • What new technologies Patrick predicts will be coming out in the near future and why you need to be on top of this news.

  • The 1 thing Patrick says will increase the range.

  • Why it’s very important to not go for the best deal for a battery online.

  • It is great to hear we have somewhere to go to get our batteries rebuilt. Wow get a fresh, upgraded battery for half the price is awesome. Living in Cheyenne Wyoming we go down to Denver often and know all too well about its crazy traffic. Looking at their bike routs, it does make more sense taking an ebike out for an errand than a car. Or perhaps just finding something new.

  • Good stuff maynard! 😁 still looking for silicon in the future. EBikes are the future and battery manufacturers will boom, size will shrink and power is on the increase.
