Vodaphone Develops E-Bike Battery Charge Payment Scheme
Dusseldorf -- Vodaphone, the city of Dusseldorf, Germany, along with Mennekes Electrotechik, Sunnhill Technologies, and Locica have partnered to test an electric bicycle charging scheme that sends a text message to the owner when the battery is fully recharged.
The system works with removable batteries, which the owner places into a small cubical and connects to a charging cable. The electric is paid for through the mobile phone. Initially through the trial period, the electricity will be free.
The German testing organization TUV Rhineland is overseeing the safety aspects of the system.
