US battery startup Appear has launched a high-performance, fast charging graphene-based battery packs for electric bikes and scooters.

The company is scaling production at Partner Foxconn to 10 million batteries per month.

The packs can be fully charged in less than 60 minutes with 3C fast charging and have a longer life than traditional Li-Ion batteries with 1000 cycles and the company is developing a version with a lifetime of 2000 cycles. The batteries also have higher discharge capacity up to 15C which enables electric bikes to have rapid acceleration, steep climb/higher torque and race mode in sport bikes.

Appear battery packs are also certified and validated by Foxconn.
