HOW FAR CAN I GO?
The most common question we hear is, “How far can I go?” The short answer is: “Far enough!”
Generally speaking, any Pedego battery should last longer than you want to ride. Your fanny will probably quit long before your battery does!
With that said, this can be a tough question because there isn’t one “standard” way to estimate range. So we’ll go over some simple math that can help you predict the range of any electric bike.
All batteries have both a voltage and amp-hour rating. If you multiply the two together, you get watt-hours. Watt-hours is an objective measurement of the actual amount of energy stored in any battery.
Volts x Amp-Hours = Watt-Hour
Estimating your actual range is a little more tricky because there are so many variables. On average, you can expect to use between 12-24 watt-hours per mile. This number fluctuates so much because of differences in terrain, rider weight, weather, speed, and most importantly how much you pedal.
When comparing different brands of electric bikes, it's wise to use watt-hours instead of estimated range.
