Wal-Mart will begin offering rechargeable batteries at select stores starting Jan. 20.
Walmart announced Tuesday that it will begin charging battery packs for the bikes that its customers use in its stores.
The battery packs are designed to recharge your bike, allowing you to take it to the store with you.
The company says it plans to sell up to 4,000 of the new batteries per week at its stores, but the actual number of bikes sold is likely higher.
The batteries can store up to 1,000 charge cycles, and can last up to four hours of continuous use, according to the company.
The company says the battery packs will allow customers to charge their bikes faster and use them less often, especially in the colder months when stores close.
Wal-Mart stores will begin selling the new rechargeable battery packs at stores beginning Jan. 17.
The first stores to sell the new bike-friendly batteries will be in New York, Philadelphia and Boston.
The announcement comes amid mounting concerns over battery-powered cars and other products that use electricity to run on the backs of human beings.
In January, the Department of Transportation said it would require all car manufacturers to disclose all the technology that powers their vehicles.
In June, Tesla Motors Inc. filed a lawsuit against the Federal Communications Commission over the commission’s decision to ban its electric car, the Model S.
