Van Raam E bike batteries

Van Raam has three different types of e-bike batteries that all use lithium-ion and are also all made in the Netherlands. Why does Van Raam has three different types of batteries? This is because all types of bikes are different and therefore also need different batteries. So how many kilometers an e bike battery lasts depends on the batterie model.

The two-wheeled tandems Kivo and Twinny, the low-entry bike  Balance as well as the wheelchair bikes, the rickshaw bike Chat and the T-bikes Viktor and Viktoria have a slim lithium-ion battery.
The Van Raam tricycles are all equipped with a Cube lithium-ion battery. The heavy-ion battery can also be selected, the difference between the cube batteries is that the heavy-ion battery has a higher capacity. Learn more about the technical data on the page of the pedal support.

The range of the batteries, i.e. how many kilometers an e-bike battery holds, depends on many different factors. Therefore, only a royal assessment of the range can be given. The most important factors that determine how many kilometers a battery lasts are the capacity of the battery and the bike type.

Furthermore, the power you use yourself when pedaling and the selected level of support also has an affect on the range of your battery. We have explained some factors further below.

On the basis of the LED lights on the display you can see an indication whether the battery is fully charged (all lights are on), it is already about half empty (half of the lights are on) or almost empty.

Condition of the tires

For example, if you have not properly inflated your tires, cycling will be much more difficult. So make sure that you have inflated the tires correctly! Then you also have a smaller chance of getting a flat tire and the tires last longer, which is also better for the environment. The recommended tire pressure is usually on the side of the outer tires.

Sustainable bike gearshifting

Unfortunately, one does not always have an influence on the situation, as in the points described above. However, if you want to get as far as possible with your electric bike with a full battery, it is important to switch your bike gears in a sustainable and logical manner. So at a traffic light, switch back to first gear so that you can just start driving again.
