Second, mine had a range of 5 miles (with the same weight rider and same path as the SLA with a 10 mile range), but again at half speed. So, you get a half speed and half distance battery.
Third, I sent it back as defective, and they claimed that it was in prefect working order and charged me to ship it back.
I'm pretty sure the SLA batteries are already discontinued and they are just selling them out on the lower priced ebikes until they are gone (why stay with old dead-end technology?). I suspect all bikes by Currie will soon ship with some sort of lithium battery. Lithium is the future and the future is now (finally, I hope). As far as performance goes, I (6 ft tall, 240 lbs on level ground) can get about 6 miles of TAG "Twist-And-Go (that's when you don't pedal at all and essentially have a little motorcycle to cruise around on). With pedaling, I suppose it will last about twice as long.
Recharging only takes about 3 hours or less from completely empty to full. My charger was defective (not staying on) so I called Currie and they sent a replacement out pronto at no charge to me. I love that you don't have to drain the battery before recharging - that was a constant problem with the SLA battery. This is so much better. And the weight, what weight? I only gave the battery 4 stars because the battery is too light (maybe 4 pounds). They should have put twice the lithium in it and doubled the range and it would still be much lighter than the SLA battery. I suspect they may come out with a more robust version in the near future and earn a 5 star rating. Are you listening Currie?
Most of the descriptions were identical except they failed to include the correct voltage/amp data; which was fianlly supplied by customer comment.
I am curious as to whether this bad data is the fault of the seller or the manufacturer.
I was also dismayed that some of the comments that were negative did not state who the culprit was, especially as regards poor customer service

A lot of money but it produces what it says it will. Charges quick, and seems to hold a charge for a long while.Published on May 18, 2013 by Amazon Customer
