Nio, Farizon, XEV and e.Go: Battery replacement in electric cars is known, even if in this country so far only from theory. But the battery swapping concept is also used in e-bikes, and it is already in practice. The system is offered by the Berlin company Swobbee.

Batteries from GreenPack, Okai, Torrot and Kumpan, which are used in numerous electric cargo bikes, e-scooters and e-kick scooters, can be exchanged at the "Swobbee Sharing Points". In the future, the startup will also be cooperating with the battery manufacturer Akku Vision, which can now also be used to swap e-bike batteries.

The manufacturer based in Franconia has been producing replacement batteries for e-bikes since 2011. The batteries are sold under the own brand E-Bike-Vision and are compatible with the drive systems from Bosch, Yamaha, Panasonic and Gazelle.

According to its own statements, Swobbee is the only manufacturer-independent provider of battery exchange stations for small electric vehicles. Swobbee is pursuing a Battery-as-a-Service (BaaS) approach and is primarily aimed at sharing and logistics fleets.

But the service is also suitable for private individuals. A year ago, Aral set up such a Swobbee station for private individuals at a "Mobility Hub" in Berlin’s Holzmarktstrasse (our cover picture), as the mineral oil company announced at the time.

There is not only a 320 kW fast charger for electric cars, but also e-kick scooters and e-bikes that can be rented – and an automatic battery changer for your own e-bikes, cargo bikes and other small electric vehicles. This means that empty batteries can be exchanged for full ones within 30 seconds. The map on Swobbee.io currently has 23 locations of such changing machines; 13 of them are in Berlin.

The following video shows how replacing the battery works:

Swobbee co-founder Tobias Breyer is delighted with the new cooperation partner: "This expands Swobbee’s range of applications again, which makes it more attractive for fleet operators and other users. This is another big step towards our goal of making Swobbee the central petrol station for micromobility and to set up a dense network of charging and changing stations in urban areas. "
