Not with a 90 day 'electronics' warranty. It would be great to be able to buy a battery + charger locally with a good warranty. That's worth a few bucks (or loons) to me.

Hey, that's better than the 0 day warranty you usually get from nameyourebikebatterysupplier.com

I like the fact that this is becoming mainstream. Maybe people will eventually stop asking if pedaling charges the bike. :roll:

It might be OK, but obviously they don't know anything about the specs.
It says charger voltage 48V but its a 36v battery, which would normally charge to about 42v.
Maybe it got lost in the translation?

I'd guess a maximum discharge current of about 20A.
