    I would only advise going for one with a lithium battery!

    What, and have it catch fire when you ride up too steep a hill?

    The older much heavier lead acid batteries are huge, your limited to how much capacity you can place on a nimble bike frame.. you probably wouldn't even get up the hill. You get more range out of a lithium battery.

    Besides, how common are these fires your talking about?

    Just use the correct rated charger that comes with it and you'll be fine. Don't overcharge and don't put a nail through it, happy days.

    No problem, I've tried two electric bikes with both batteries. The lithium one performed a lot better and was much lighter

    I was joking, based on the propensity of hoverboards to catch fire.

    Oh sorry, I have a terrible sense of humour :rolleyes:

    Hoverboards are really kicking up steam atm about fires, there's alot of fakes and cheap manufacturers about trying to make a quick buck!
