Video | A Guide to Electric Bike Battery Bags and Frame Bags

black e-bike battery bag for frame

Looking for a great solution to carry your electric bicycle battery and extra gear on the road? Battery frame bags are THE SOLUTION to protect your battery, as they allow for the battery to ride suspended from the top tube, as opposed to connected directly on the frame, which may lead to bumping and excessive pressure placed on the lithium cells during an off-road bike ride. But how do you find the right one for your needs?

We’ve gathered our top suggestions, and Bikepacking.com has also compiled a list of the best frame e-bike battery bags. Get one of these versatile accessories, and carry everything you need on your bicycle, and protect your battery at the same time.

Find the Best E-Bike Battery Bag for Your Bike

Certain battery systems are designed for bike frames. At Leeds Bikes, we offer these with our 500 watt electric bike conversion kits and our e-bikes. However, one of our simplest and most popular designs is our 250 Series E-Bike Kit, because it offers multiple solutions for every bicycle. A frame bag is measured using the top tube, as seen below.

Our Favorite Options

Our personal favorite battery frame bags are the Revelate Designs Tangle Frame Bag and the Leeds Exclusive Weatherproof Battery Frame Bag, which are available in our online store. The Tangle e-bike battery bag fits the 250 Series PBJ, 10k, 10k+, 30k, and 30k+ e-bike batteries, but does not fit the Ultra and Ultra+ unless you are using their largest size frame bag. See the review below from bikepackersmagazine.com.

Options From All Over the World

Below, you will find a comprehensive list of battery frame bags that offer various zipper styles, waterproofing solutions, and even custom setups. You can submit cardboard cutouts of your frame, and many of these companies offer custom e-bike battery bags designed just for your bike.
