What do the terms amps, watts and volts mean for my E-bike?

  1. Your e-bike has an electric system that is measured by volts and amps. The voltage is the amount of potential electricity your battery holds.
  2. The amps or current refers to the speed or rate of flow of electricity as it is being drawn from the battery. The higher the current the quicker the battery will be depleted. High current happens when riding with a heavy load, riding uphill, riding on bumpy and grass terrain etc.
  3. The watts is a measure of the output of power that your e-bike can provide. Watts are measured by multiplying the voltage by the current.

Example: A 350 watt system can put out up to about 600 watts at peak but will provide 350 watts of power when riding under normal conditions. The rated power of your e-bike will affect the speed and or torque depending on the configuration.
