E-bike batteries are batteries used for powering electric bikes. The e-bike batteries are made from lithium-ion cells. This is why they are commonly referred to as Lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries. The e-bike batteries have undergone a major revolution over time. 


This revolution has led to significant improvement in their reliability, safety, efficiency, and power capacity. The latest electric bikes are now using 18650 cells which are welded together to form a complete pack. 


The e-bike Li-ion battery normally has a long lifespan which makes it much preferable. They also tend to have a very quick recharge time. This is what makes the e-bike batteries a darling to many since you can ride for long distances frequently with no worries.

Advantages of using SPP e-bike battery


Lack of memory effect: The SPP e-bike battery has lithium-ion cells that you can charge quite quickly and at any time. The charging of the SPP e-bike battery is not affected by the current charge level. 


Any interruptions you may have during the charging process will not affect or cause any harm to the SPP e-bike battery. You do not have to maintain a complete charge for you to use the SPP lithium-ion battery for your bike.


Very low self-discharge: Using an SPP e-bike battery guarantees little to no self-discharge. With other brands of lithium-ion e-bike batteries, longer periods of storage may mean that you will need to recharge again in order to use them. 


With SPP e-bike batteries, this is something you need not to worry about. Be it in winter or any other break you may take from your ride, once you get back, you pick it from where you left it. 


The SPP e-bike rechargeable batteries will only require a 30% to 60% charge during storage and you will be good to go once you pick it up again.


Long lifespan: SPP electric bicycle battery is made for many miles,  long trips, and to serve you for many years without fault. 


This li ion battery for bike is made with an intelligent system. This system helps the e-bike battery to overcome excessive discharge, high temperatures as well as overcharging


The E-bike Battery Lifespan


One of the many questions that many of our customers tend to ask is how long the SPP e-bike battery is going to serve them. That’s normally a very challenging question. The charge storage capacity of the e-bike will depend on its power. Some of the power capacities for e-bike batteries are:


  • 12V e-bike batteries
  • 36V e-bike batteries
  • 48V e-bike batteries


Another factor that will determine battery charge storage ability for your e-bike battery is your riding habit and your electric bike battery management system. The combined factors can differently dictate how long the battery will take you.


How to take care of your E-bike battery


The lifespan of your SPP high-quality lithium-ion e-bike battery is determined by several factors. The e-bike lithium battery is built to last you for a long period. You however have a great responsibility in ensuring that the lithium battery does actually serve you that much. Some of the ways and means to extend the life of your lithium-ion electric bike battery is:

  • Avoid discharging the e-bike battery below 20 percent (20%)

Extreme discharge on your e-bike battery will make it hard to use it. This also reduces the capacity of the lithium-ion battery for your ebike in the future. Discharging your e-bike battery below 20% will make the lithium battery start oxidizing. 

This is what affects the capacity of the e-bike battery thus impacting the lithium-ion battery life. If you intend to store it for a long time, it's recommended you charge it fully. You should also recharge your e-bike battery once after every 3 months or 90 days. This is especially so during the winter season.   

  • Avoid charging your lithium-ion e-bike battery immediately after the ride.

You should always make sure that your e-bike battery has cooled down before charging it. If you charge a heated lithium-ion battery for your bike, it may not cool down. This leads to a high degradation of the e-bike batteries thus affecting its lifespan.

  • Unless it’s necessary, do not charge the e-bike battery fully.

Whenever you are charging your ebike lithium-ion battery to more than 80% of the battery capacity, its internal resistance increases. The lithium battery will heat up more. This eventually speeds up the degradation process and affects the service life of your e-bike battery.

  • Store your e-bike battery in a cool and dry environment

Do not store the lithium battery for your e-bike under high temperatures or in an extremely cold environment (frost). This kind of environment tends to shorten the life span of your ebike battery life. 

You should never leave your lithium battery at temperatures that are below 0ºC. In the same manner, you should not expose your ebike lithium-ion battery to temperatures beyond 30ºC. When with your electric bike, always avoid parking under direct sunlight for a long time. 

Types of E-bike batteries and their differences

  Choosing a good lithium-ion e-bike battery has a direct impact on the efficiency, distance to clever, and the single charge of your e-bike battery. It is therefore important that you pay attention to what you are buying. You should make sure you get value for the money you invest in the lithium-ion battery for your e-bike.


Different lithium-ion batteries of the same weight and size will work very differently. The type and structure of each Lithium-ion e-bike battery make each e-bike battery different. Some of the characteristics that affect the performance of each battery for e-bikes are:

  • Voltage
  • Weight
  • Capacity
  • Size
  • Battery life
  • Charging time


Voltage: Most of the lithium-ion ebike batteries are rated with a given range of voltage. For example, if you have a 36V electric bike, you will need a lithium-ion battery that can deliver from 30V to 42V. When the 36V lithium-ion e-bike battery is at 42V, it means that it is 100% charged. It can therefore hold its energy to the fullest.

When your 36V e-bike battery is at 30V, it will shut down and stop power provision. Without this, your e-bike battery can suffer permanent damage beyond repair.

The average operating voltage is normally 36V. This is sometimes referred to as the nominal voltage. The Voltage is measured in volts. It describes the speed of the electrons. The more voltage your e-bike battery has, the faster the electrons move. 

Capacity: This is the measure of the energy stored in the e-bike battery. It is the main characteristic of the lithium-ion battery for electric bikes. The unit for capacity is amperes-hour (Ah). The capacity represents the fixed number of amperes that the e-bike battery sustains for one hour.
