    A New Detachable Battery Debuts

    The PAS C featured a new detachable nickel-cadmium battery in 1995. Lighter than conventional lead batteries, this battery was also less susceptible to changes in ambient temperature, provided more stable current, and had a higher cycle life - which means the number of repeated charges and discharges before performance dropped improved dramatically. Employing this battery also offered users the choice to charge it while it was still mounted on the bicycle or removing it to be brought indoors for charging, thereby improving convenience.
