Bosch eBike Battery Chargers Fast, Standard and Compact

Hi, Richard here from eBike Sussex. We have had a few customers request info about the Bosch Fast vs Standard vs Compact Chargers for Bosch Electric Bikes. Well here is the low down:

NEW! Fast Charger:

The Fastest

The Fast Charger is currently the fastest eBike charger of any system provider on the market and will recharge the eBike battery in the shortest possible time. After just three hours, the powerful PowerTube 500 or PowerPack 500 are fully recharged. The Fast Charger needs just over one hour to charge a battery to 50% capacity. This makes it the perfect charger for fast recharging while on a trip. The Fast Charger is ideal for eBikes that are often used and frequently charged. The Fast Charger is available in store, please call for details.

  • Voltage: 220–240 V
  • Dimensions: 200 x 90 x 60 mm
  • Charging time: approx. 2 hours for PowerPack 300, approx. 2.5 hours for PowerPack 400, approx. 3 h for PowerTube 500 and for PowerPack 500 with the Bosch Fast Charger

  • Compatible with Performance Line CX, Performance Line, the new Active Line Plus and the new Active Line

Standard Charger:

The All Rounder

The robust and functional 4A Standard Charger is a great all rounder Bosch Charger. The compact design and practical Velcro strap help in storing it conveniently. Like all Bosch Chargers, it works noiselessly and also charges the Bosch PowerTube 500. It is designed for every day use and is a great robust product.

  • Mains voltage: 230 V
  • Size: 190 x 86 x 54 mm
  • Charging time: approx. 4.5 hours for PowerTube 500 and PowerPack 500, approx. 3.5 hours for PowerPack 400, approx. 2.5 hours for PowerPack 300 with the Bosch Standard Charger

Compact Charger:

The Companion

The Compact Charger is the ideal charger for all eBikers who travel a lot. It weighs less than 600 grams and is 40% less bulky than the Standard Charger. The Compact Charger can also be used in the USA, Canada and Australia with mains voltages of 110 to 230 Volts. It is ideal for packing in your back pack for stops on your ride. I personally take my fast charger as it isn’t huge, however if space and weight were an issue I would take a compact charger for convenience.

  • Voltage: 110 – 230 V
  • Size: 160 x 75 x 45 mm
  • Charging time: approx. 7.5 hours for PowerTube 500 and PowerPack 500, approx. 6.5 hours for PowerPack 400, approx. 5.0 hours for PowerPack 300
