Einleitung

Vanmoof make the world's most stylish urban bike with inbuilt solar powered lights. After a few years the light's NiCad batteries won't hold their charge so it's time to replace.

You can buy replacements but Vanmoof won't ship to many countries (like Australia) so you'll need to fix them eventually.

The most difficult part is getting the batteries

Batteries were less than $4 for four, so it's of course much cheaper to fix than replace - and better for the environment.

  1. Buy two, "2/3" AAA NiCad rechargeable batteries. Better still get four so you can replace the batteries in both lights.
