Other instruments on board include a watt analyzer, four voltage meters, two booster switches and an emergency switch.

To increase its solar power capturing capacity of eBike in the future, the inventor plans to add Fluorinate Ethylene Propylene film and for the look uplift he is also planning to add some extra light features.
