EVELO Battery Systems

Fully Integrated Frame Batteries

Some EVELO models feature a fully integrated frame battery. These batteries are completely hidden in the frame, and are completely removable for charging both on and off the bike itself.

Integrated frame batteries provide large capacity with minimal weight, and offer a smooth, clean aesthetic.

Rear Rack Batteries

Rear rack batteries still offer some advantages for many riders. Placing the battery in a rear rack over the rear wheel allows our engineers to design the lowest step through frame possible, making it as easy as possible to get on and off of certain models.

This battery configuration is also the go to for battery add-ons, allowing for use of both the in frame battery, and the rear rack battery, effectively doubling the range on applicable models.

eBike Battery Brands

Brand names are the first topic of discussion when it comes to batteries. While everyone is comfortable with household brand names like Samsung and Panasonic, these companies also make lower grade batteries. Li-Ion batteries are graded, generally A-C, which is a generalized guide referencing overall power, capacity, and lifespan.

A grade A cell from a lesser known brand of Li-Ion battery will significantly outperform a Grade C cell from a more popular brand name. This is why you see low cost eBikes and significantly more expensive brands touting the same brand name batteries, but one bicycle is much more expensive. Overall, a reputable eBike brand, A or B rated li-ion cells, and a strong warranty are the safest bet to ensure you’re getting the best bang for your buck.

Longevity & Care

A quality Li-Ion eBike battery should last 4+ years with regular use. Riding your bicycle often, or at least once in a while is your best bet to make sure your battery has a long and happy life.

If you plan to store your bike for an extended period, we recommend fully charging your battery and removing it from the bicycle for long term storage. Top off your charge every 3 months to ensure it stays healthy on the shelf.

Capacity & Specifications

You’ll see a few terms when researching batteries, which will be Voltage, Amp Hours, Watt Hours, and Range. These are the four main factors to consider when comparing different batteries.

With larger batteries come extra weight from the battery itself, as well as the motor for higher power applications. We are also still limited by technology to a degree, as it’s simply not possible to manufacture a 30lb eBike with 100 Miles of range, and won’t be for many decades. Finding an eBike with a good mix of range, speed, and weight is the best choice for most riders.


This is the force at which electricity travels. To use a garden hose as an analogy, this is how far the stream of water sprays out of the hose. For eBikes, 36-48 Volts is the sweet spot for bikes ranging from 350-750 watts. 24 Volt systems are a bit antiquated, and 52V+ systems are generally reserved for higher power or performance applications. We don’t want a trickle, but we also don’t want a fire hose

Amp Hour

This is a rating of how long a battery will last under a one Amp load, or a set amount of resistance. The higher the Amp Hour rating, the longer the battery will last.

Watt Hours

This is voltage multiplied by Amp Hours, which is a representation of the overall capacity of a battery - and is the best way to compare different voltage cells. A 36V 13.4AH battery is 482 Watt Hours, and a 48V 10AH battery is 480 Watt Hours. The 36V battery will offer longer range but lower power and speed, while the 48V battery will have more power and speed, but offer less range, but they both have the same amount of potential energy inside.


Range specifications can also be a tricky subject, as you will see the same size battery rated for vastly different mileage from one company to the next. It may be physically possible to put 100 miles on a 10AH battery, but for most folks it’s just unrealistic. Keep an eye on these numbers as well, as some companies will stretch the truth in order to make their products seem more attractive at a lower price point.

Additional Reading


How often do I need to charge my EVELO eBike?

You can charge your EVELO battery as often as you wish. We recommend charging your battery after every ride, or every few rides if your battery is still near a full charge after your ride. We also recommend cycling the battery completely every few months, which means riding the bike until the battery is almost dead, then giving it a full charge overnight.

Can I still ride the bike after the battery dies?

Absolutely. The display panel on the handlebar will give you plenty of notice once the battery is getting low, so you will have plenty of time to head back home. If you end up with a dead battery out on your ride, you can shift to a lower gear and pedal the bike home just like a regular bike. Range Anxiety is a popular phenomenon, but it's rare for folks to get stuck on a ride with a dead battery.

How does speed affect the range of an eBike?

If you ride at higher speeds, it will diminish the overall range that the battery system will provide. An easy comparison is MPG of a car. If you drive faster, you get less efficiency. The most efficient riding speed for optimal range on an eBike is somewhere between 12-16mph. Higher speeds and heavy throttle use will result in lower mileage. Also pedaling up hills will significantly increase battery range and life.
