The battery ought to give at least one hour of riding time which is plenty for me. Charging it every day is a good thing, but running it until it cuts out is quite bad for the battery. Lithium ion batteries like to be run and charged regularly, but they can be damaged by being run until they cut out too often. I don’t pedal much myself. I find that the bike goes along nicely on the throttle and I only pedal to help it a bit up hill if it is slowing down.
