From my understanding, this meets the physical requirements of an EAPC, at least if you get the EU version, but it does not bear a label to indicate compliance with the EAPC laws of the UK.
This is my 2nd electric folding bike, my first was a carrera e-city which was unfortunately stolen so I went for a ADO A16 as a cheaper alternative.
A removeable battery is always a massive plus with an electric bike which the ADO A16 has. The assist & hybrid mode on the ADO A16 is good, the battery on the carrera is far better, the battery on the ADO doesn't last as nearly as long as advertised, probably about 50% of the advertised mileage. The suspension on the ADO is very good, the carrera didn't have any suspension. Wasn't impressed with electric scooters London after sales, I had an issue with the programming in the ADO and emailed for assistance = never bothered getting back to me. If you do buy an ADO watch a programming set up video on YouTube as there are no instructions or after care in helping you with the set up/changing settings.
Clever fun little bike but sadly too heavy for me and the gear ratios are way off the mark. The bike settings do not function properly which means I cannot fine-tune it and not get into the + mode for the hills where I live.
Having said all that if it is only to be used for a bit of fun, then go out and buy one and enjoy. It seems to be fairly well maid.
Maybe I’m just unlucky but the reviews say that this bike is capable of well over 20 miles on one charge- IT ISN’T! Maybe in “pedelec mode” No 1 Setting but the electrical assistance in this is practically nil! As soon as you put it in setting No 2 it eats the battery in front of your eyes giving less than 8 miles on a flat surface!
It’s a case of you get what you pay for but don’t believe the hype - it isn’t true! I won’t even mention No 3 setting but suffice it to say “take your phone with you as you will need someone to pick you up down the road. Finally the bike is almost impossible to pedal in 0 mode( no electrical assistance)!
