VanMoof S3 & X3’s have an integrated battery (504W capacity) that can’t be removed for charging. To charge your bike, follow these simple steps:
Plug the included charger into a power outlet and connect the other end to your bike, on the underside of the top tube.
The battery will automatically stop charging when it reaches full capacity.
A full charge takes about four hours. You can reach 50% charge in 80 minutes.
Don’t have a power outlet nearby, or need some extra range for your rides? We’re happy to introduce VanMoof’s first PowerBank.
Note: For protection, VanMoof batteries will not charge below 0 °C / 32 °F. If it’s cold outside, it’s always better to park your bike inside for a couple of hours and start charging at room temperature (between 15-25Cº). Charge you bike indoors, in a well-ventilated dry location (moisture and extreme temperature fluctuations can affect the charging process).
Try to avoid fully charging and fully discharging when it’s not necessary. The optimal battery percentage is between 10% and 90%.
Pro tip: Use your Turbo Boost thoughtfully. Pressing that button non-stop is demanding on your battery.
