Revonte offers OEM's design flexibility
Following Revonte ONE, the smart e-bike drive system with an integrated automatic transmission, Revonte has released the flexible Revonte Akku battery solution for e-bikes. Developed in cooperation with Akku Vision, the two batteries Revonte Akku 5 and Akku 7 provide the most versatile battery solution for e-bike manufacturers. Available in two capacities, 530Wh and 705Wh, both Akkus come with the same housing, allowing OEM partners to easily design their products in the desired specs and price points. For both batteries the same type of frame can be specified.
Besides the matching physical dimensions, the batteries are designed for both vertical and horizontal assemblies with the appropriate attachment points, which further enhances the OEM’s design flexibility. Finally, Revonte provides five different insertion options and locking mechanisms (top-front, top-back, bottom-front, bottom-back and slide-in) without any modifications.
The ease of daily use by the end-user has been considered with a two-step release mechanism, which allows both the locking of the battery securely in the frame and its release with a single movement, using a single hand. The battery can be inserted or extracted simply by pushing or pulling without operating a separate button or latch.
“We are incredibly excited by the battery developments at Revonte, especially the modular ability to add up to four batteries in parallel, both safely and intelligently. It makes specifying the range of our vehicles far simpler for our customers, as typically we want to offer a range from 30 up to 120 km per day”, says Adam Barmby, founder and CEO of the UK micro mobility company EAV. “Revonte Akku simplifies the whole process and also allows us to add features to our vehicles such as regenerative braking, solar charging and the use of the batteries for onboard systems,” he continues.
