Buy a GOOD quality “D” lock AND high tensile chain/cable (loop the cable through your helmet, not the strap) Always use it (even just popping into a shop) always lock your bike TO something immovable lamp-posts, trees and street sign are are good!
Most batteries lock into their racks but, as you have said, you will never stop a determined and resourceful thief, so make yours less appealing than the next one. Also make sure your insurance cover is high enough to cover the replacement cost AND that there are no “stupid” policy restrictions. (Some policies require you to produce the remains of any defeated lock, which is not always possible or reasonable)
We have used folding electric bikes all over the continent never had a problem (so far)
Use any lock when they are in your MH, the locker locks are rubbish!
Its not the destination that matters.
It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, it’s in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with
