You can ride at least 50 kilometers without recharging. The range decreases with more weight on the E-chopper (e.g. a child on the back) and depends on driving behavior and environment (hills etc). You can only charge the E-chopper at the start/end point. Definitely NOT charge at general charging points along the way at coffee or lunch stops since it will break the battery!! A new battery is expensive and you will be charged for it, so please do not try and charge the battery outside of the rental location.
