If you have or are considering buying an e-bike of any kind, chances are you’re wondering about battery safety and how to maximize performance.

With the recent Lithium Ion battery fires in New York creating political will to ban unlisted, non-certified batteries in e-bikes, electric scooters, and other e-mobility devices, I wanted to talk to an expert on e-bike battery safety.

My guest today is Kunal Kapoor, Senior Manager of Quality and Compliance for Bosch. As one of the leading brands of e-bike drive systems, they know a thing or two about battery design, safety, certification, and performance, so I picked his brain on all the things.

If you’re wondering how to best charge, store, and maximize the life of your e-bike’s battery, this short episode is packed full of useful info.

That was a good podcast. I’ve been having trouble falling asleep lately, I needed something super boring like that to help me drift away. Please choose a more entertaining subject with a more upbeat guest for future podcast.
