I don't ride an e-bike, but I do ride year-round in all conditions. Just today, I was reminded of an newer problem when it comes to bicycle lights and falling snow: it's been my experience that most modern bike lights fail to generate enough waste heat to melt the snow which builds up on the lens. Today I ended up losing the better part of my light's brightness to the snow piling up against the lens.

It's important to remember to swipe a thumb over the lenses of your light(s) every few miles to keep them clear of snow and the light bright. Since I was riding in daylight today, I'm sorry to say I didn't even notice until I returned home and realized that my light's lens was buried beneath a solid 1/2". Fail. I will get it right next time.
