    Mwihoko Secondary teacher builds electric motorcycle using laptop batteries

    Published on

    Mwihoko Mixed Secondary School physics teacher Paul Waweru of Kiambu, Kenya, developed a rechargeable electric motorcycle using old laptop batteries.

    After spending a substantial amount of money on a motorcycle that promptly stopped working, Waweru got the idea to improve upon it.

    Waweru disassembled obsolete laptop batteries and utilized the material to develop the accumulators, using various principles from physics.

    When completely charged, the new batteries can go more than 50 kilometers.

    It’s great that his electric motorcycle can be charged with solar power since this encourages the use of renewable energy and helps protect the environment.

    The demand for his electric motorcycles has increased, and potential purchasers have begun making inquiries.

    Waweru plans to ramp up output to meet rising demand, which would aid in alleviating fuel shortages in the nation.
