Do Electric Bikes Recharge When Applying Brakes Or Going Down Hill?

Do electric bikes recharge when applying brakes or going down hill – like a hybrid car’s regenerative braking?

A few models of electric bikes include a feature to recharge the battery, usually while you are braking. In those cases the range of the battery can be extended 5-10%, while adding several hundred dollars to the cost. However, due to the design of the motors to get regeneration, you'll often find that the bike is harder to pedal if you are using the bike with the power off.
