Now that the chillier weather is here and knowing that batteries don’t like the colder weather.

Does anyone know where you can get a neoprene insulated battery cover for the Nevo3 down tube.

Fahrer-Berlin makes good neoprene battery covers:

In practical terms, I stopped using battery covers. As long as you store your e-bike in heated space, riding an e-bike generates heat inside the battery, making it never really cold. I even rode my Vado and Trance E+ during -6 to -8C frost without battery cover and the battery temperature was well above 0 C! More: I even had a short ride at -14 C without really freezing the battery. (Note: My Specialized e-bikes let me measure the temperature of the battery during the ride).

Of course, there is nothing wrong with insulating the battery but that only makes sense if you were about to keep your e-bike outside for, say, one hour and only during severe frost.
