I think it might be glued, or, connected by delicate latches. When you order a new battery, you should order the battery cover at the same time. It is not guaranteed you can get the cover in your wife's bike colour, though. Bear in mind, you can still use the old battery until it gets down to, say, 70% health. Rotating batteries will help their longevity. (I am a "spare battery" man, and typically carry the spare in a pannier on my long rides).Kinda curious about something...does anyone know when we upgrade the battery down the road if the face plate on the new battery is transferable to the new battery? I see some screws but the lbs said it's "glued" but his opinions about things seemed questionable....She loves the color of her bike and I'd like to keep it all one color instead of a black battery on there looking obvious.
As far as her Como she has complained that sometimes it's too easy. It's 95% flats where we live so I think the 100/100 setting is all she would need for the occasional hill. Since her bike is so heavy plus she has a storage bag on the back she needs the bailout 100/100. But other than that I need to dial back these other setting IMO.
Full power Como and Vado are different from SL e-bikes. Of course, your wife has to have the emergency 100/100 setting for big hills (I'm doing the same on my "big" Vado).
