Of course it matter like everything in life!
Battery is the heart of your e-bike
and of course the most expensive part, if you run out of battery is like having a heart attack, anyhow you can still pedal your bike, but believe me is not fun anymore riding a e-bike when you are short of breath and tired with all the weight that this implied, but luckily for us, battery technology improve significantly in the last years.
Our water bottle batteries are full of power lithium
Blood for your bike! with high consistency, low internal resistance, high energy density with high rate discharge and fast charge performance.
They weight just 3 lbs. and can provide up to 5 years of service life, with an elegant, portable and minimalist design that no many people will notice that you are riding an electric bike.
One of the most common mistakes that many riders made is buying a huge battery, first, look ugly on your bike frame, second, you carrying more weight for no reason, be lighten can save you some money and future headaches, besides will be more effective and enjoyable to ride.
Most people rarely ride more than 30 miles at a time, if you use your bike for commute to work for example, you can ride up to 25 miles one way, then recharge your battery at work and come back home with a full power battery again.
I can remember one of my biking adventures when I went for a 125 miles ride in 5 days, each day we ride 25 miles approximately, but I take with me a huge and heavy back pack full of clothes, shoes and of course bottles of water and snacks for one of my biggest rides, and at the end I literally used just one short and 3 t-shirts in 5 days, don't even ate any of the snacks, from that day finally I learn my lesson: Do not carry more that you really need it!
