Batteries sold with 2016 eZee electric bicycles
There is a fire risk associated with the batteries in such a way that they can combust/catch fire while charging.
What to do
If your battery is affected, DO NOT charge it / plug it into the wall.
Please check the serial number on the back of the battery. The battery needs to be removed from the bike for the serial number to be visible.
If your battery is affected, as above, do not charge it. Contact Electric Bike Team to organise a new battery for your bicycle.
There is very little risk associated with discharging the battery (ie riding your e-bike) so you can continue to use the electric bike until the battery is empty and then it should be removed.
