Ask Optibike! Can you turn the Optibike upside down without hurting the batteries?

By May 18, 2009 July 7th, 2018 Ask Optibike!

This question came from Derek in Toronto, Canada- Derek owns a 2008 Optibike OB1:

“Can the Optibike be turned upside down to work on?” If so, for how long?

Answer: The Optibike uses sealed lithium ion batteries, so there is no fluid to leak out if the batteries are inverted.  Further, the lithium ion batteries that are used in your Optibike do not require any regular maintenance like a wet cell lead acid battery- meaning that aside from charging (and riding your bike) there is no maintenance that needs to be performed on your battery.

Happy riding Derek- thanks for the question.
