If you’ve recently purchased an electric bike conversion kit and are in need of a battery, then the ModWheel 48V 11.6AH Li-ion E-Bike Battery - Panasonic Cells offers high efficiency and excellent quality. Light, sturdy, and offering the latest in e-bike battery technology, the ModWheel 48V 11.6AH Li-ion E-Bike Battery - Panasonic Cells is an ideal inclusion.
Many of the older electric bicycles originally came with SLA (or sealed lead-acid) batteries. While this technology was tried and true, these batteries were known for being oversized, clunky and quite heavy. This presents a problem when riding an electric bicycle, as excess weight slows you down and limits the travel range achievable from a single battery charge. While sealed lead-acid batteries were fairly cheap to purchase, they only lasted for an average of 100-200 recharges, so riders had to replace them every few months. These are just a few of the reasons why so many riders have chosen to make the switch to lithium-ion batteries.
Lithium-ion batteries are renowned for being small and for not weighing much. While many are housed in aluminum casings, the ModWheel 48V 11.6AH Li-ion E-Bike Battery - Panasonic Cells is actually contained in a durable plastic case. This means that the battery is lighter than ever and won’t overheat, even when used continuously on long rides. Weighing in at just 6.5 lbs., you’ll hardly even notice that the battery is there.
Unlike the quick-to-die sealed lead-acid batteries, the ModWheel 48V 11.6AH Li-ion E-Bike Battery - Panasonic Cells has an expected lifespan of over 800 charging cycles, so riders can expect years of use before a replacement will be required. The battery has an LED light so you can easily observe if the battery is switched on or off, plus a locking key for added security when parking in a public place.
This 48 volt, 11.6 amp hour battery takes just 5 hours to achieve a full recharge, and riders can expect to travel approximately 14 miles on a single charge (although this does depend on the size of the e-bike motor). This battery is compatible with 48 volt, 750 watt electric bike motors, as well as with the larger 48 volt, 1000 watt motors.

Finally found it! I have been looking for a replacement battery for a wheel kit i got from a friend for a while. I have been all over the place online and calling into shops with no avail. Extremely sad and down on my luck i found bikeberry while searching around some bike forums. I decided to give the customer support a call and man was i impressed! They were extremely courteous and answered all my questions accurately. They helped me find out what exactly was the issue and what would be the best replacement for my kit. Just a few weeks ago i finally received my battery in the mail. The battery was well packaged and protected in styrofoam. Without hesitation i grabbed the power connection and attempted to connect it to my kit. AND IT WORKED!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH BIKEBERRY.com! I am back to riding my eco friendly bike up and down the beach.
