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 excessive temperatures, overcharging, and deep 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.

Charge times and service life

Lifelines

The charging time depends on the capacity of the battery and of the charger: With the Standard Charger, one hour for half a charge, while the PowerPack 400 requires around 1.5 hours and the PowerPack 500 about two hours. An empty PowerPack 400 is fully charged in just 3.5 hours. A PowerPack 500 need 4.5 hours. A charge cycle refers to full charge in a single charging session or several partial charging sessions. 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 86 F 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 68 F
  • Storage at approx. 30 to 60% charge status
