I am considering buying the E Rider 15. However, I do not have access to an external charging point, so the only option is to remove the battery for every charge.
Does anyone have experience charging the bike in this way?
How long does it take and is it a nuisance?June 29, 2017 at 2:43 pm #3940Tim LulhamParticipant
It’s straightforward to remove the battery – it’s locked under the footplate but the key is the same as the ignition. I keep my bike in the garage and have a charging point, but on occasion I’ve removed the battery and charged it in the office. The only issue is the size and weight of the battery case, so I keep a strong canvass bag in the storage under the seat specifically to transport the battery (and the charger) to my desk. It takes 4-6 hours to fully charge – the same as when you charge it if it’s still in the bike. Overall it’s a bit less convenient, but not a problem. Good luck with the E15. I’m just coming up to 1 year on mine and it’s still going strong. Tim Lulham.

I live in a flat and take my battery out of the bike to recharge. It’s not that heavy to carry and has 2 handles. It takes 5-7 hours to charge from dead or almost dead
