On your eFoil PWR-Foil, you have the option of fitting a Classic, Long Range or Sport battery, but which one should you choose? Before we talk about the two batteries, you should know that they have the same casing. They are the same size and can be installed in the same way. However, they don't have the same power. Inside this waterproof case, you'll find cells that are also waterproof. It is made of robust plastic with watertight connectors and a decompression valve.

Batteries PWR-Foil



The PWR-Foil Classic eFoil battery

This battery is powerful enough to keep you riding for at least 1 hour. Depending on your level and weight, you can even ride for longer. As an example, a good rider will manage to fly for almost 2 hours with this Classic battery. On the other hand, you need to remove the propeller protection, use very low-consumption foil wings and sail in small wave conditions that allow you to be pushed slightly. A classic rider weighing 77 kg will fly for 1h30 on average. The higher you fly above the water, the less battery power you use and the longer you fly.

PWR-Foil's Long Range eFoil battery

The Long Range is similar to the classic, but in a different colour. It's a little heavier, but it will allow you to fly for between 2 and 3 hours, depending on your size! For example, people who only flew for an hour with the Classic battery will fly for 1 hour 45 minutes. A good rider will fly for 3 hours with this Long Range battery. It's the ideal option if you want to go for long rides or use it with your family or friends.

The PWR-Foil eFoil Sport battery

Thanks to this Sport battery, you'll save 30% in weight for a flight time of between 45 and 75 minutes, depending on your weight and experience. It's a battery that will be especially useful for surfing the waves and having a lighter machine. It's the same size as the others, with more powerful but fewer cells inside. These are high-discharge, high-quality lithium-ion cells assembled in France. You'll need 40 minutes for a full charge.



To conclude

If you want to hit the waves, save weight on your machine and sail for the right amount of time, your choice will be the Classic battery. If you want to take your eFoil for long rides, give it a 30-minute spin to friends or family, and if you're a rental company, go for the Long Range. Finally, there's inevitably a price difference between the two, so sometimes it may be more worthwhile to buy two conventional batteries. The advantage is that you can charge one while you're using the other. So you can practice as long as you like. Don't hesitate to contact us if you need more information.
