What is an Ebike Battery Voltage?
The voltage of an e-bike battery is a measure of the electrical potential difference between the positive and negative terminals of the battery. It is usually expressed in volts (V) and determines the amount of power that the battery can provide to the motor of the e-bike. The voltage of an e-bike battery can range from as low as 24V to as high as 72V and plays a significant role in the range and performance of the electric bicycle. A higher voltage battery will generally have a longer range and provide more power to the motor, while a lower voltage battery may have a shorter range and struggle to power the motor effectively.
How Long Does an Ebike Battery Last? | GreenMotion E-Bikes
There are a few ways to determine the voltage of your e-bike battery:
- Check the manufacturer’s specifications: The voltage of your e-bike battery should be listed in the manufacturer’s specifications or documentation that came with the bike.
- Check the battery itself: The voltage of the battery may be printed on the battery itself or on the label attached to it.
- Check the battery charger: The voltage of the battery is often also listed on the battery charger, as the charger is designed to work with a specific voltage range.
- Measure the voltage with a multimeter: If you have a multimeter, you can measure the voltage of the battery by connecting the multimeter to the battery terminals.
It is important to know the voltage of your e-bike battery as it can impact the range and performance of the bike.
Voltage Chart for different types of ebike batteries
The voltage of an e-bike battery is an important factor that determines its range and performance. The voltage of an e-bike battery is usually expressed in volts (V) and can range from as low as 24V to as high as 72V. Here is a rough guide to the voltage range of different types of e-bike batteries:
- 24V e-bike batteries: These are low voltage batteries that are typically used in entry-level or children’s electric bikes. They have a shorter range and may struggle to power the motor effectively, but they are often more affordable and have a longer lifespan.
- 36V e-bike batteries: These are mid-range voltage batteries that are commonly used in mid-level electric bikes. They have a longer range and can provide more power to the motor than 24V batteries, but they may not be suitable for high-performance or high-speed e-bikes.
- 48V e-bike batteries: These are high voltage batteries that are often used in high-performance or high-speed electric bikes. They have a longer range and can provide more power to the motor than lower voltage batteries, but they may also be more expensive and have a shorter lifespan.
- 60V and 72V e-bike batteries: These are very high voltage batteries that are typically used in high-performance or off-road electric bikes. They have a very long range and can provide a lot of power to the motor, but they are also the most expensive and have the shortest lifespan of all the options.
It is important to choose the right voltage for your e-bike battery to ensure that it meets your performance and range needs. A higher voltage battery may be more expensive, but it may also provide a longer range and more power to the motor. On the other hand, a lower voltage battery may be more affordable, but it may have a shorter range and struggle to power the motor effectively.

Lead-Acid Battery Voltages
Using a voltmeter, one can easily check the voltage of the motorcycle battery in various situations.
When the motorcycle is completely Off (ignition key out), the lead-acid battery voltages are (measured at 77°F/25°C):
Note: these are average values since some batteries may have slightly different values, depending on the type (Calcium Enhanced AGM, Enhanced Flooded, and similar). Gel-cell batteries have voltages between Flooded and AGM, but this is also model dependent. check the documentation that came with the battery for exact voltages, although they are not always provided.
But, if the battery reads above 12.7V while the motorcycle is Off completely, the battery is (almost) fully charged and ready to go.
If the battery reads ~12.3V, there is a good chance that the newish battery will be able to crank the engine, but.
In order to prolong the lifetime of the lead-acid batteries, it is recommended to keep them charged in the 80-100% SOC range.
Lithium Battery Voltages
Most motorcycle lithium batteries feature a nominal voltage of 12.8V.
Since lithium batteries feature BMS that monitors the battery voltage/charge, if the voltage drops below a certain level, the BMS disconnects the battery in order to protect it from the over-discharge condition.
The actual cutoff voltage depends on the battery model and must be found in the battery’s documentation. it usually ranges between 10.0-11.5 volts.
Lithium Battery Reset Button
Some lithium motorcycle batteries come with a reset button. when the actual voltage drops below a certain level, BMS cutoffs the battery.
However, the battery still holds enough charge for one or a few possible cranking attempts. the user has to press the reset button, after which BMS connects the battery for one (or more) final cranking attempts.
And when the engine starts, the motorcycle alternator, in combination with the charge controller, recharges the battery.
Battery Voltages With The Engine On
When the engine is On but idle, the charging current is low, if any. To verify that everything is alright with the charging system, rev up the engine to 2000 RPM and check the voltage.
E-Bike Battery Basics
If the voltage is between 13.5 and 14.5 volts, the battery is being properly charged.
If the cranking was slow and lazy, and the voltage is nonetheless in the 14 volts range (at 2000 RPM), that means that the charging system is able to increase the voltage, but the battery is not able to accept charge well.
If the battery successfully started the engine, but the voltage is around or slightly below 12.5V even when the engine is at 2000 RPM, the motorcycle’s charging system is not working as it should.
How To Charge The Motorcycle Battery
If the motorcycle battery is discharged, for various reasons, it may be recharged by riding a bike for at least 60-120 minutes or by using an advanced battery charger.
Such battery chargers analyze the battery first and only then charge it according to its condition.
Lead-acid batteries should be charged with currents in the 0.10-0.15C range, while lithium batteries can be recharged using stronger currents, usually around 0.5C.
This means that most lead-acid motorcycle batteries can be recharged using 1-3 Amps Smart lead-acid battery chargers, while lithium motorcycle batteries can be recharged using 3-10 Amps Smart lithium battery chargers.
Long Story Short: By monitoring the voltage of the motorcycle battery, one can tell the condition of the battery and the condition of the motorcycle charging system.
A good AGM motorcycle battery can easily last 2-4 years, while a good lithium motorcycle battery can last around 5-7 years.
The biggest killers of properly maintained motorcycle batteries are extreme temperatures and mechanical impacts and vibrations.
So, park the motorcycle in the garage during winter and summer and ride safely.
What is the life of a motorcycle battery?
When taken good care of, Lithium batteries can last 5-7 years.A conventional battery such as a Lead-acid battery, and an AGM battery, on the other hand, will last 2-4 and 3-5 years, respectively, with good care.
You want to pay attention to your batteries because you rely a lot on them.
Imagine being in a remote place, far away from the city, with no motor mechanics nearby and suddenly having a dead battery on your hands!
No one wants that. But you must be mindful and take good care of the battery to avoid such situations.
Here’s what you should keep in mind to take good care of your battery.
Take care of your motorcycle battery in cold weather.
While a Lithium battery takes the most hit, Lead Acid batteries fare slightly better in nasty cold conditions.
If you know that your motorcycle will sit in the winter and you will not be riding much, it’s best to remove the battery and store it in a warm place.
If you do, however, want to keep the battery in the motorcycle, consider using a Battery Tender. A Battery Tender, like its name suggests, tends to the battery. It is essentially a battery charger that maintains the charge on the battery when it is not in use.
Using your motorcycle regularly to maintain the battery
A battery performs best and lasts the longest when it is regularly used.If you ride your motorcycle for 30mins on average every day, then this keeps the battery charged and in use. This will increase the overall life of the battery as well.
However, suppose 30 mins are all you ride in 2 weeks or so. In that case, you will need to support the battery with a Smart charger or else risk degrading the life of your battery.
Topping up the distilled water on the Lead Acid Batteries of your motorcycle
Lead-acid battery maintenance requires topping up distilled water regularly. A good rule of thumb is to inspect your Lead Acid battery at least once every two months. You should inspect even sooner in the summer months or when you ride more often. The more the battery is in use the faster the electrolyte depletes.
If the level of distilled water goes down below the specified markers and is not topped up immediately, it can lead to a degradation of the lead battery plates permanently and cause a fall in the battery power. The fall in the overall output of the battery will be permanent and even if fully charged the battery will never be able to achieve the original output.
Charging your motorcycle battery correctly.
Lead-acid batteries, AGM batteries, and Gel batteries can be charged using a trickle charger. Trickle chargers simply keep pumping a small charge constantly and need monitoring. The important thing to note about using a trickle charger is that the rating needs to be similar to the voltage of the battery. So for 12-volt batteries, it is best to use a charger with a 12V rating and keep the current supply to about 1/10 of the capacity of the battery. So for a 0.9Ah battery charging it with a current of about 0.1 with a 12V charger should be good.
It is never a good idea to charge a motorcycle battery with a charger with a very high voltage capacity, such as a 24V charger! This could fry and permanently damage your battery.
Trickle chargers are manual chargers that can overcharge a battery if not monitored. You can use a floating charger or a Smart charger instead. Floating chargers such as a Battery Tender keep charging till it achieves a full state of charge, after which it will cut off automatically. It will remain cut off till such time as the voltage remains steady. It will start charging again if it detects a drop in voltage reading.
What to do if your motorcycle battery is flat?
If you have a flat battery on your hands, try to switch ON the kill switch and turn the ignition ON. But DO NOT crank the ignition key — DO NOT try to start the bike.
If the console powers on when you turn the key to the ignition point, there is a good chance you will be able to bump or jump-start the bike.
Push the motorcycle downhill if possible and once it picks up some speed, try and engage the first gear or the 2nd gear. This should crank the motorcycle on! This might require some good physical labor. See if you can enlist the help of another person to help push the motorcycle. Both my superbikes weigh more than 450 pounds! I know what’s it like to be up against something so heavy. Get help!
If you happen to have jumper cables on hand, you could try to use another motorcycle battery or a car battery to jump start.
Make sure the car is turned off when you do this.
Attach the positive cable of the jumper wire to the positive terminal of the supplying battery and the positive terminal of your motorcycle battery. Attach the negative cable to the negative terminal of the supplying battery and the other end of the jumper cable to a metal part of your motorcycle, away from your battery and preferably on a non-painted part of the framework.
Here’s a great video to follow on how to jump-start your motorcycle and avoid common mistakes.
How many volts are Harley Davidson batteries and what about other superbikes and supersports?
Harley Davidson batteries are typically 12V batteries. They used to run 6Volt H3 batteries before 1965.
In 1965 Harley-Davidson came out with the FL Electra-Glide, which featured an electric starter with a 12-volt battery. Ever since Harley Davidson has been using 12V batteries.
Superbikes and sports bikes also use 12volt batteries.

How to Check The Battery Voltage
Our previous sections have briefly mentioned how to monitor the voltage readings to confirm when to charge and discharge the bike. Here, let’s discuss in detail how to do that:
With Battery Tester
Step 1. Turn off the headlights and ignition, then open the car hood to find the battery
Step 2. Set up the digital voltmeter to DCV or DC. If the device has a voltage range, set it at 20V
Step 3. Connect each probe to its appropriate battery terminal (positive cable – positive terminal; negative cable – negative terminal) and check the reading.
Without Battery Tester
Do it the traditional way: ask a friend to start the car in Park mode with brakes on. Observe the headlights: do they look dimmer as your engine starts? If yes, chances are the battery suffers from insufficient charges.
What to Do If The Motorcycles Battery is Flat or Dead?
As we already discussed, replacements are your only choice; a flat battery is beyond saving!
But what if the battery dies/ goes flat in the middle of an empty road, and you don’t want to call a towing service? Consider jump-starting the vehicle using starter packs, bump starts (for downhill roads), or another car/motorbike if its owner is willing to lend you a helping hand.
What Is The Life of A Motorbike Battery? How to Extend Its Lifespan
Is 12.4V Okay for Motorcycle Batteries?
Yes; your battery is still more than 50% full.
Is 11.9V Good?
No. While this bad battery isn’t dead yet (and you should thank it for that!), its less-than-50% capacity requires charges immediately.
