E-bike Battery Charging Experience

Design student should realize that a charger is a $20 component at most for cost of goods, and a famcy plug and user interface is not going to get a bike manufacturer to lose margin on something that few people understand or care about. Just let us know when the battery is done charging, and don't ever be overcharging it.

Perhaps the marketing gimmick that would maximize profit is a 50 cents for a switch and ciruit mod (resistors) to allow the charger to output 100% and 90%. Then the bike seller can advertise that the charger will prolong battery life.
