Log9 InstaCharging battery packs leverage the tech firm's cell-to-pack competency to develop batteries that provide faster charging, lower battery degradation and longer battery life. These batteries will be deployed in the market via outright sales and Battery-as-a-Service (BASS) business models. The latter will benefit commercial fleet operators with nominal monthly rates.

All the electric two-wheelers in Hero Electric's portfolio offer easily removable batteries, offering customers the convenience of charging their portable batteries at workplace or in apartments. However, to allow the bikes to run continuously for longer hours with a minimal interruption, especially in delivery operations, the rapid charging batteries have been integrated in scooters. “It is for such customers that we now offer bikes with the Log9 batteries that can be fast charged while the driver is having his cup of tea," said Sohinder Gill, CEO, Hero Electric.
