A motor case (31) in which a stationary portion (35) is fixed, and a gear case (41) in which a gear mechanism (sd) is accommodated are made of aluminium, most heat generated from the stationary portion (35) at the time of actuation of a brushless wiper motor (20) can be directly dissipated outside from the motor case (31). That is, compared with conventional technique, heat transmitted to the motor case (31) can be efficiently dissipated outside, and the motor case (31) does not reach high temperature.
Battery assembly for fitting a battery pack to a frame of a cycle
A battery assembly 51 for fitting a battery pack 52 to a frame of a cycle 2 comprises a battery holder 54 for fitting to the frame, and a connector portion 55 which forms an electrical connection between the battery pack 52 and wiring 90 for connecting to at least one other component of the cycle when the battery pack is held by the holder 54. The connector portion 55 is slideable in a linear direction with respect to the battery holder between an open position which provides clearance of the battery pack to be inserted into the holder and a closed position in which the connection is formed.
