press release

Stuttgart/Reutlingen – Riders of eBikes with Bosch drive systems can look forward to more flexibility in charging their pedelec: The new Charger Adapter by Bosch eBike Systems allows you to charge batteries of the Classic+ Line with the current Charger of the Performance Line and Active Line. Another new accessory is the Travel Charger, by which frequent drivers can charge the Bosch eBike battery while on the go with a car, for example. The compact, lightweight charger is equipped with a plug for 12 V on-board power sockets and cigarette lighters.

Charger Adapter for maximum compatibility
Until now it was necessary to always use the associated Charger to charge batteries from the Bosch eBike Classic+ Line. With the new Charger Adapter, Bosch eBike Systems creates full compatibility with the Classic+ Line batteries for the PowerPack Charger of the current product lines Active Line and Performance Line. The precisely machined connector plug fits precisely into the charging port and provides more flexibility to owners of the predecessor system: This means it is no longer necessary to carry two different chargers on extended eBike tours when pedelecs with Bosch systems of both model generations are ridden – saving space and weight. The Charger Adapter, which is ergonomically designed and manufactured from high-quality plastic, can also be used in conjunction with the new Travel Charger.

Charging made easy: Battery charging on the go
Is the battery charge sufficient or is the battery about to go dead? This is a question many eBike riders ask themselves, especially when they are on the road, far away from the nearest electrical outlet. The Travel Charger from Bosch provides energy replenishment while you are traveling: With the 12-volt plug for on-board power outlets and the practical adapter cap for cigarette lighters, the rechargeable PowerPack can now be charged on the go – whether in the car, RV, or camper van. The compact charger is compatible with all PowerPack batteries of the product lines Active Line and Performance Line, as well as with the batteries of the Classic+ Line (with Charger Adapter).
The Travel Charger is equipped with discharge protection for the car battery, keeping it from being fully discharged. The Travel Charger as well as the Charger Adapter will be available from eBike dealers as a separate accessory from the end of 2014.
