Most rechargeable batteries in consumer electronics and e-bikes or scooters are either non-replaceable or non-repairable, resulting in shorter product lifetimes, increased electronic waste, loss of rare materials, and unnecessary expenditure for consumers.

This report is an initiative of the European Environmental Bureau, the Right to Repair campaign and the Institute for Industrial Environmental Economics at Lund University.

The research comes from surveys and interviews with repairers and recyclers, as well as a thorough literature analysis of the state and opportunities of battery removability. The result is the first extensive research on the topic.
