Swobbee integrates e-bike batteries from Akku Vision and AES

Swobbee is a provider of manufacturer-independent battery swap stations for various types of small electric vehicles. The Berlin-based company pursues a battery-as-a-service approach to "operate sharing and logistics fleets in a more efficient, sustainable and cost-optimized way". To this end, Swobbee operates "cabinets" across Europe that charge and hold the swap batteries in individual compartments. Anyone who uses compatible, lightweight e-vehicles such as e-cargobikes or e-scooters and has a battery rental contract with Swobbee can drive to these stations at any time of the day and swap their empty batteries for fully charged examples - in "less than 30 seconds", as the provider advertises on its website.

The cooperation with Akku Vision and AES now expands the potential user base. Akku Vision is a manufacturer of high-quality e-bike batteries founded in 2011 in Franconia, which are sold under its own brand E-Bike-Vision. The batteries are compatible with drive systems from Bosch, Yamaha, Panasonic and Gazelle. In addition, Akku Vision has "added OEM-specific projects to its own development and production" this year.

AES is again a manufacturer of lithium iron phosphate batteries based in Glinde near Hamburg. For eight years now, the company has been equipping Deutsche Post's e-bikes with LiFePO4 batteries developed in-house. In addition, AES manufactures both its own and customer-specific battery systems for a wide variety of e-bike and cargo bike applications.
