The most commonly recommend battery pack is a Lithium Iron Phosphorus pack. These are known as LiFePo4. These packs provide a 10 times longer life as measured in re-charges. . They are 1/2 of the weight of other technologies. But LiFePo4 batteries cost 3 to 4 times more per pack and can fail much more quicly than the rated 1500 recharges. Rge lowest cost battery packs are of Sealed Lead Acid type. These are twice as heavy as the LiFePo4 battery packs and they can recharged up to 350 times. But these also cost 1/3rd as much as the LiFePo4 pack. As a cost saving move the SLA battery pack can be budgeted for replacement by throwing as little as 25 cents per recharge into a mason jar. With electrical costs of 2 or 3 cents per recharge, this can be a very low cost transportation alternative. And a lot of fun too. With a 30 mile range as an example, almost any car will cost 1 1/2 gallons of gas to move 30 miles. while the electric bike or trike can do this for 27 cents or less than the equivilent of 1/10th of a gallon of gasoline.
