ELECTRIC FOLDING BICYCLE COMPARISON


Sorry, guys this is nearly 2 years out of date, and needs to be redone.
Over the last 2 years many more brands have appeared on the market,
but these are basically similar, with small variations.
One significantly different is a 26" folding electric mountain bike available from 
Value-e-Bikes

several Australian electric bike shops

Notes
1. Suppliers quote the battery manufacturer's stated "life" of the battery.
This is usually "up to" 800 charges for Li-ion and 2000 charges for LFP,
(where LFP is Lithium Iron Phosphate, or LiFePO4)
In actual usual use you should expect much less, tho LFP should be twice.
2. Suppliers also often quote the bicycle maker's stated range and speed,
without verifying these under typical use, and so these are optimistic.
