Bosch batteries

The energy carriers

Bosch batteries are an efficient energy provider and the most modern eBike batteries on the market. They combine impressive mileage performance, a long lifetime and low weight with an ergonomic design and simple handling. The high-quality lithium-ion batteries are equipped with a Battery Management System, which recognizes potential sources of error and protects the cells from overload. The DualBattery is perfect for touring, long-distance commuters or cargo bikers. The combination of two Bosch batteries delivers up to 1,000 Watt hours.

The advantage of Bosch rechargeable batteries

 

No memory effect

Bosch batteries with lithium-ion cells can be charged quickly irrespective of your charge level at any time. Interruptions of the charging process do not harm the battery. Complete discharge is not required. 

Extremely low self-discharge

Even after long periods of storage, e.g. over winter, the battery can be used without recharging. This means Bosch rechargeable batteries do not need to be recharged after a long break in use. For longer storage, a charge status of approx. 30 to 60% is recommended. 

Long service life

Bosch batteries are designed for lots of trips, miles and years of service. The intelligent, electronic Bosch Battery Management System (BMS) protects lithium-ion batteries from extreme temperatures, overcharging, and excessive discharge. The BMS checks every cell, extending the life of the rechargeable battery. This makes the time from initial use to the need to replace a Bosch battery very long.

PowerPack 300

The PowerPack 300 provides reliable and long-lasting energy storage without memory effect and with minimal self-discharge. Frame batteries are constructed so that the PowerPack sits close to the centre of your eBike, which provides greater stability. The rack battery variant is used for wheels with a low entry point. Regardless of where the battery is mounted, it can be easily removed and charged at the nearest power socket. The PowerPack 300 is included as a frame or rack battery for all product lines. As a rack battery, PowerPack 300 is available only in combination with Active Line and Active Line Plus.

PowerTube 500

With the PowerTube 500, Bosch offers a rechargeable battery that can be optimally integrated in the bike frame. There are two options for installing the battery, positioning it either vertically or horizontally. Minimalist design opens up new possibilities for integration into the frame for bike manufacturers. The battery is concealed and perfectly protected by the frame. A convenient function means that the battery pops approx. 2 cm out of the frame when unlocked, making it easier to handle. In addition, a safety mechanism prevents the battery from falling out. The battery is also optimally protected by the frame. Recesses in the top surface are suitable for attaching bottle holders or design trims.

Charge times and service life

Refill your energy tank in no time

A charge cycle refers to the full recharging of a battery in a single charging session or several partial charging sessions. The charging time depends on the capacity of the battery and of the charger: with the Standard Charger, the PowerPack 500 and PowerTube 500 require approx. two hours for half a charge, and 4.5 hours to fully charge. Charging with the Fast Charger is quicker, with only 1 hour needed to half-charge the PowerTube 500 and PowerPack 500 – the perfect solution when on the road – and only three hours to fully recharge these battery packs. The service life of Bosch rechargeable batteries is influenced mainly by the type and duration of use. Like every lithium-ion battery, a Bosch rechargeable battery also ages over time, even if you do not use it.

Factors that shorten the service life:

  • Heavy use
  • Storage above 30°C ambient temperature
  • Long-term storage fully charged or fully drained
  • Parking the eBike in direct sunlight

Factors that have a positive impact on service life:

  • Minimal use
  • Storage at a temperature between 0 and 20°C
  • Storage at approx. 30 to 60% charge status
