First this Lithium Battery is only a 6 Amp, the old SLA was a 10 Amp. So the lithium at its best runs like a half charged SLA but for a longer time.

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 purchased the lithium battery for Currie in February. The battery does not seem to hold a charge so I contacted the customer service department and I was given a return authorization number and told that I would recieve a prepaid label to send that battery back for service. That was 10 days and two phone calls ago. Tried to contact the customer service for the third time and I was put on hold. I still do not have a shipping label and may not ever get one. I feel their customer service has alot to be desired. They will tell you what you want to hear but they do not follow through. I do like like the bike but the customer service is terrible.

I bought this to replace the pain-in-the-butt, heavy, maintenance hungry SLA battery that is noticeably slowly dieing from the first day you use it. My experience so far (2 months of use) is good and that the speed and distance of my Trailz bike is the same as when my bike and SLA battery were new but the maintenance is now care-free.

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?

I spent a lot of money. The charger burned up in my hand before the second use. I plugged it into a wall socket, and before I could get it to the battery, it smoked and burned me. I can not get through to CURRIE customer service, after 3 attempts. The BBB has been good at helping me in the past. Maybe it is time. DEALING WITH CURRIE WAS INSANE. So I DEALT WITH AMAZON AND IT WAS GREAT. My charger shorted out. No fuse protection. The battery was much much faster and longer lasting for me. Amazon was so great I went on "chat." They sent me a new charger and battery via one day FREE delivery. The charger is inferior. Handle with care. I just got it and the green pilot light is barely visible. It got extremely hot the initial charge, but it completed the charge. Spinal epidural injections kept me grounded today. The battery makes this bike hard to stay off it. I love it. I hope this "Replacement" does the same. Currie does not sell these chargers separately. Nu egg.com has them. I will modify my post after my first ride.

As a currie owner, I am always researching ofr good deals on Lion batteries, so this battery at 60% cost of the $500 battery caught my attention.
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

The lead-acid battery worked ok but this is much lighter and recharges faster. I haven't had it long enough to know how long the life is, which is most important. It needs to be about 3 times the standard battery to justify the price.
