The Hailong E-Bike Battery is a small footprint 48w 10amh battery that is proving to be a good option for versatility with commuting, errands and touring. It is small in size and when on the rear rack of the bicycle, looks like a small tool type of bag and not a bulky E-Bike Battery. Most commuting and errand trips are less than 20 miles so "hauling around" a huge heavy battery is not needed for most riding needs. I find it is better to use a small battery and when additional distance of touring is needed, just put another identical battery in a pannier and swap them out when needed.
I often take a Jackery charging device when touring. With this I can charge the small devices (Garmin, Varia, iPhone, speaker) while on the go or at stops. The Jackery is very well build and fits in the bottom of a pannier. It can be charged quickly at rest stops using with AC. It can be charged with a solar panel.
The small Hailong E-Bike Battery pull less than 100w when charging! So the Jackery can be used to charge the E-Bike battery and that is a big plus with touring. If needed, with the Jackery 160. you can add a few more miles to a spare Hailong Battery while you are riding.
The Jackery can also be solar charging while charging the e-bike battery during those sunny water break stops! (see picture below - showing 33w of solar going into Jackery & 95w going into a Hailong E-Bike battery)
Having a Jackery is a good option to be able to add power to the e-Bike when your are away from the grid... or just use to have a "solar powered" e-bike.
