A while back we here at e-bikeshop secured the sole rights to import the Bosch eBike Battery Pack cover into the UK for the Berlin manufacturers Fahrer. We have kept it quiet but are now too excited so had to blab about it. We have new stock arriving in Jan 2014 of the Bosch Classic+ Battery. The new 2104 Bosch Performance & Active Line covers will be arriving in mid Feb 2014.The Bosch PowerPack cover is designed to hide the battery away and keep it protected from the elements. It also keeps the PowerPack within the best temperature range for the battery to operate in cold winter conditions. Conversely in the summer it can help protect the battery from direct sunlight which can also heat up to temperatures outside of its preferred zone.
The winter can have a huge affect on the battery. In fact in sub zero conditions you can loose 25% of the batteries range operating outside of its optimum temperature. The Bosch battery cover can help protect the battery from these conditions and wind chill.It also helps to keep your battery clean in all conditions, you can remove the battery without removing the cover which is a real bonus, meaning it can stay on there all of the time. The 4.5mm thick neoprene cover prevents the battery getting scratched and allows some cushioning to knocks. The Fahrer battery cover really hugs the battery tight and is secured to the battery to prevent it moving around.This Bosch PowerPack cover is available in 3 versions as follows and can be ordered from our website -
The Classic + For Frame mounted Batteries 2012, 2013+ model years :Its really neat and has cut outs so you can still see the battery level indicator LED's and have access to the power button. The cover itself does not get in the way of the key operation at all.
The Rack Style Battery for model years 2012, 2013, 2014+ : This offers the same features as the frame style but takes a new shape for Bosch batteries mounted on the pannier rack, often found on ladies electric bikes or step through frame styles.
The Performance & Active Line for the 2014 system : Offering a revised shape for the new style battery this cover slips over smoothly and has a velcro tab at the bottom to stop it sliding about. All of the above covers fit both the 300Wh & 400Wh Bosch eBike batteries.At a recent meeting with Bosch, although not their own product, Bosch themselves highly recommended this product for their PowerPack's pointing out all of the benefits above.They are available for pre order, we have the Classic & Rack mount covers arriving in Jan 2014. The Active & Performance LIne Battery Covers are in production as we speak and will follow in Feb 2014. Please visit the e-bikeshop online shop to buy or to view more details.
