Suppliers are rolling out smaller, more portable units with foldable frames.
- Service life: Under this measure, China-made electric bikes utilize brushless DC motors. These not only have longer service lives, but emit lower noise.
- Environment-friendly components: Suppliers are adopting Li-ion, -polymer batteries that last up to 500 cycles after a 5hr charging time. Electrical capacity is also equal to that offered by lead-acid variants. NiCd and NiMH-fitted versions are also on hand.
- Portability: Several new models come in foldable frames, besides the mainstream L and diamond shapes. Gaining popularity in the industry are smaller units with 12 to 16in wheels.
