WATTT??? OK. How `bout Plan B:They will eventually feature free charging stations for e-bikes...
A series of generic "standard" sized batteries, with a series of Pack SWAP (solar) stations. So, ebikers pull up, (checks station does have available packs, at least one fully recharged) deposit one spent - or near so - battery, get one "freshie", near fully recharged pack (recharged by one "state of the art" BMS cell by cell system) to drop into ebike battery plug/slot/wattEVer. Total time spent to "recharge"? Maybe one minute.
Plan A at this point seems to involves Ebiker standing around and twiddling their thumbs. Shuffling their feet. Etc. While pack takes "forever" to recharge.
So. Plan A? Or Plan B?
EDIT: Alle Leute hier aus Deutschland?
EDIT (again. sorry): Price of Admission to this new Club/wattEVer? Buy one brand new "generic" pack.
