So I got this chinese E folding bike and its...
Its actually pretty cool. The brakes suck as in make a horrible squealing noise but that can be cured with some different pads and an adjustment. The folding aspect of the bike seems very secure. It locks tight and does not seem to be fragile. The seat is crap but easily changed cheap. Overall, I paid $200 for it new in the box and think its worth that. It does have 3 12v 12ah SLA batteries so its not the nice light lithium type but it works. Here are some pics. BTW, the specs are:
180Watt rear hub motor (not sure if its brushless or not)
36V (12V,12AHx3) SLA battery pack with keyed on off and battery life meter
OMG 69lbs with battery installed
Came with battery charger and tool kit
20 miles assisted pedaling distance (unverified, I have gone about 5 miles unassisted and still had power)
Upgraded the 34tooth 65mm crankset to a 42tooth 70mm crankset I had laying around
Upgraded the folding pedals to aluminum/chromo pedals non folding (might get some better folding pedals later on)

Reason: added specs.
