Panasonic’s 26 volt electric bike system ruled the roads up until about 2012. We sold thousands of Kalkhoff Agattu, Tasman, Pro Connect and Sahel fitted with 26V Panasonic packs – a mere 10Ah in the early days, then 18Ah and finally 24Ah.

But not to worry, another German manufacturer has spotted an opportunity in the shape of several hundred thousand electric bike owners across Europe riding Kalkhoff, Raleigh, BH, Flyer and several other brands that rely on these battery packs.
