Commercially available ebike using power tool battery packs.

Post by Hillhater » Jun 01 2020 11:44pm

Has anyone tried , tested or even seen one of these Ozito ebikes that use their universal powertool battery packs ?
Ozito is a chinese brand that produces a range of (cheap ?) cordless power tools that are retailed through the Bunnings stores in Australia.
Its obviously just a cheap bike with a 250w hub motor, but its the first commercially available tool pack powered on i have seen.
I believe the full retail price is Au$1999.

There are a lot of better bicycles for the money.

You think it’s expansive?
Wait to see how much more is the one with a cord for the same range. :mrgreen:

I don't mind I have a very long cord. Plus batteries are overrated.

Don't like to brag, but I've never had any complaints on the size of my cord.

Love the box it comes in. The specs are OK for a 250 W bike, and I like the idea of using power tool batteries. But the price seems way out of line. My entry level Ancheer is a similar bike, and it only costs around $600-$650 USD, depending on who you get it from. That price included free shipping to my door in the US. This is my second one, and they've proven to be very reliable bikes. I get about 20 MPH after removing the little speed limiter loop wire on the controller.
