Las Vegas, Nevada’s company Rechargeable Power Energy North America, LLC, (RPE) has as its major business building or rebuilding custom battery packs. An e-bike owner with a defunct brand, one that no longer has batteries available, or with replacement batteries that are extremely expensive now has an option to keep the machine alive. In some cases RPE can replace weak or faulty cells to extend the life of a pack, or it can fill the existing case with new, tested and proven cells.
Here’s how it works. RPE has the customer run the battery dead, and ship it using ground shipping. If it’s a rebuild/replace then RPE does not need the charger or bike. It can handle any existing e-bike battery. And, in most cases, RPE can add higher amperage than what the user started with. The only additional charge is a flat $50 to build the new battery into an existing case. RPE batteries range from $280 for a 24v 8ah all the way to $750 for a 48v 16ah. With offerings at 8-, 10-, 15-, 16-, and 20 amp hours, RPE can supply additional backup batteries for any motor.
