For some a second battery is a must. For others, several years of whooshing precedes replacement. Either which way it can be a bit of a nightmare trying to figure out which battery is which! Each bicycle fits at least one battery, sometimes there are several options: the more capacious a battery is the further it will take you and the heavier and more expensive it will be.
