Add-E 250W Kit Video Review

Add-E 250W Kit Video Review The Add-E electric bike kit is exceedingly compact, light weight and easy to remove (for temporary unpowered use) though it does produce more noise than most of the ebike kits I’ve tested. The bottle style battery pack is beautiful, the cap twists to add power at 50 watt increments up to 250 making it legal internationally, limited top speed of 15.5 mph. Lots of optional accessories including a twist or trigger throttle, the included five magnet pedelec disc isn’t super responsive but works well and qualifies as Class 1. Compatible with a wide range of bicycle types but may require extra work to install (completely removing the bottom bracket), solid six month battery warranty.

  1. WEAK

  2. I don’t understand. If the motor is turning the wheels, why do you have to pedal? Do you have to pedal all the time?

  3. Thanks for all your great videos. I’m waiting for my first manufactured ebike to be delivered today. I ordered the Moskow Plus after watching your review.
    Now here is my question ÷)
    What kit (or kits) would you recommend for a Quickie Hand Cycle?
    My wife is disabled, and it would be great if she could join my on some longer rides. We are both in out 50’s, so speed is not a priority.

  4. Seriously stupid price, and totally unnecessary cost compared to buying a whole Ebike, how can this be justified, and it’s slow with no display, frankly it’s worth about £200, it’s laughable!

    I mounted this on a cargo bike (classic trike) and it’s a perfect solution:

  6. pretty pricey considering the quality is meh!

  7. What is it like on wet roads

  8. if somebody is watching this in 2018/2019 – check add-e next – much less noise!

  9. What’s the point of having a speed sensor? To cut the power when a certain speed is reached? Could you just snip that?

  10. Because it spins in contact with the tyre, how much wear is there on the tyre? I remember similar products twenty plus years ago and the rate it wore the tyre was incredible. Wasn’t worth the expense.

  11. Too expensive. 600 euros is the normal price.

  12. This is an absolute rubbish product in every sense (price/performance/coherence/reliability/guarantee etc…) sold by some crooks only on YouTube. Believe-me or spend over 1300 € and buy one and find it out by yourself like I did!

  13. It cost the same as a whole electric bike. Total rip off!!

    what about weather resistance. i live in Michigan we get lots of rain and snow how is this going to hold up to that.

  15. I thought he was being sarcastic with the bottle-battery

  16. The price is ridiculous

    Thank you, well explained and presented video.

  18. wonderful product.

  19. This is a disaster rubbish. Don’t buy it except if you want to test your luck. Or don’t buy it before having tried it. Or spend over 11500 € and buy it if you don’t believe me.

  20. Anyone know of the most inexpensive solution for a e bike add on? Don’t care about looks or weight just need power and range.

  21. 1000 bullshit i’ll just pedal like always

  22. Fucking expensiwe i can get completely new e bike for this money this is rubbish and tax on stupidity

  23. Can changing for wheel? DC as ganeratot

  24. Anyone know where i can buy a throttle for this

  25. 😎👍😎😉

  26. how would this thing work on a MTB if the cadence is not met at that speed when climbing steep incline

  27. The exposed coils of the motor seems like it will get wet in rains and there will be dirt and muck and snow getting stuck inside affecting the performance of the motor.

  28. What does that cost, and where can you buy it ?

  29. Anthony D™Productions April 25, 2021 @ 12:56 am

    Nice video! Thumbs up from me! 👍🏻

  30. Please provide links of the products

  31. Where can i buy it i live in USA

  32. This noise is MENTAL!!!!

  33. hi, is this still available? how can i buy this in Indonesia?

  34. I want to buy this
    Please provide link

  35. give that to your dog

  36. Hernan1205 Paz Zapata April 25, 2021 @ 12:59 am

    cuanto cuesta el accesorio y en donde lo puedo conseguir

  37. trop de bruit

  38. This could be excellent as just booster power for getting up hills. Most people cruise just fine.

  39. It sounds like that turtle humping the boot. If it were in the $250-$350 range I’d buy this and a recumbent for my handicapped brother that doesn’t have a way to the grocery store besides walking. 15mph is probably about all he needs.

    Great video will it work on foldable bikes and on hills?

  41. Bharath Naik L April 25, 2021 @ 1:02 am

    Hi, What is the speed that I get if I add 250w motor to my fat tyre cycle ? Which one is good for fatbike ? 250w or 500w or 1000w ?

  42. how expensive ! Jesus.

  43. Your hand reminds me of Spiderman.., but nothing comes out of yours.. 😀

  44. Jelena Đorđević April 25, 2021 @ 1:08 am

    Thank you.

  45. 250volts may work well for 250w-500w motors so you could use 1amps continuous discharge current on low 2.5 or 5ah capacity battery packs which would keep discharge current on cells low

  46. Where to buy it

  47. what bike is that?

  48. can i use it in my Hercules A500

  49. You have got to be kidding. Put a piece of crap like that on a $1300 bike. will wonders ever cease.
