A new service for electric bikes

Published on 11.02.2022

From now on, you can have the battery of your electric bicycle tested at the ACL Diagnostic Center.

Batteries are subject to an inevitable ageing process caused by daily use, but sometimes also by incorrect storage or simply ageing. When buying or selling a used electric bike, asking about the condition of the battery is one of the most important purchase decisions.
 
The diagnosis also provides information about how much capacity the battery still has.
 
First, our experts carry out a visual inspection of the battery to detect externally visible damage such as knocks to the housing, visible water ingress or signs of corrosion. The next step is to check the condition and function of the charger before determining the amount of energy (capacity Wh - watt hours) of the battery and finally assessing the behavior of the internal resistance of the battery.
 
Once the check is complete, you will receive a detailed measurement report on the current remaining capacity of the battery.
