Self Charging Electric BikeWhen it comes to transportation, going electric seems to be the trendy thing nowadays. Well, some people are trying to avoid change and still prefer fossil fuel for power. But there is a growing number of people slowly inviting the idea that an electric mode of transport may be the future. Some reason that it can help reduce the air pollution that is slowly destroying the planet. Some prefer the use of a cleaner fuel source like solar power. Even if you doubt ever going full-fledged electric-driven in the future, you can start slowly. You can keep your car and try out this Self Charging Electric Bike when going on short distance trips.

The Self Charging Electric Bike is a convenient means of transport for people commuting short distances. This electric bike features a chainless hybrid drive system. It also comes with a dual winding motor that can go at speeds of up to 16 miles per hour. The pedal system does not directly propel the bike to move. Instead, the pedals attached to the built-in alternator help provide supplemental power to the built-in batteries to make them last longer. The Self Charging Electric Bike can go up to 18 miles on a full charge without pedal assist. But the electric bike can go up to 28 miles when aided by pedaling.

The Self Charging Electric Bike comes with a control unit with sensors that monitor the bikes speed as well as the slope of the terrain. The bike then shifts gears automatically to enable smooth rides based on terrain. What makes this bike convenient is that users can easily fold it to a more compact unit when not in use, just 1/3 of its size. This makes it easier to store and set aside in a spare trunk or room. Users can also charge the electric bike by AC, which takes just 2.5 hours to reach full charge. The Self Charging Electric Bike is available at Hammacher Schlemmer for $3,800.
