Greenhouse emissions are greatly responsible for global warming. The good news is that we all can contribute to reducing harmful emissions. One of the most effective ways to do it is by switching from driving a car to riding an electric bike.
When you ride your ebike, you don’t burn fossil fuel. As a result, your carbon footprint reduces, and you contribute to saving our planet. Yeah, we can be superheroes. Delfast takes its mission to stop climate change seriously. For this reason, we have created an e-bike with the biggest riding range, the eco-friendly Delfast TOP 3.0.
The battery is one of the vital components of an electric bike. Whether the e-bike has pedal-assist mode only or throttle, the battery provides the energy to power the electric motor of the vehicle. The battery also adds weight to electric bikes. . There are several types of batteries :

However, none of the above parameters alone characterizes completely the performance of a battery. Therefore, we usually use two additional parameters:
You should take good care of your e-bike’s battery since multiple factors can impact its life and performance. The type of terrain, inclination, riding style, and tire pressure all play a role. Avoid direct blows to the battery, and always handle it with care when you remove or mount it. You should keep your battery charged even if you don’t plan on using your electric bike for a long time. Also, don’t charge your battery under freezing temperatures, and overheat it during summer rides. For more information on taking proper care of your e-bike battery, you can read our battery maintenance guide.
