If you want to choose an electric skateboard, there are a few things to consider and investigate. You have to decide what your main reason is to buy an electric skateboard. Then decide in the area where you live or you want to bury electric skateboard, how much power you need at least. In the Netherlands everything is very flat, so you do not need a strong frame, but if you want to make your skateboard in southern Europe then you have more power to leave the mountains / mountains behind. Here are some tips to consider when buying an electric skateboard. Electric skateboards have been available for years, but they have often weighed 20-30 kg by heavy batteries. In the past five years lithium batteries have been developed, the weight has been drastically reduced and safety has improved. This makes it easy to operate maneuvers and they are portable. In addition to a safer and lighter board, the batteries now have a greater variety. Always follow the manufacturer's recommendations when charging your plate because the battery has a lifespan.

Today's engines are between 400-2000 watts. A 2000 watts motor usually drives steep slopes and gives it a frightening gear.

Most electric skates use a wireless handheld controller that can be used while driving. Controllers have light indicators so you know the status of your board. For example, what percentage of the battery is charged, or something wrong with the board. The downside is that you still can not see which percentage of the controller, so we recommend loading the frame. We have seen a dead battery multiple times and then his electric skateboard is just a slow and heavy longboard (he goes but it's very difficult). The Zboard and a wheel use their weight and feed of the feet so you do not have to bring a controller. The downside is that you have no idea how full your electric battery is. When a wheel has to stop and the indicators look and count or an application for this.

All boards use longboard wheels. The smaller the number, the softer and more affectionate, the wheel (smoother ride). Higher numbers sometimes mean harder wheels and less grip (a rough ride). Even money, the bigger the wheel, the float the ride. The only exception is the onewheel, which has a large wheelbase that can be driven over hard terrain and even dirt roads.

Not all chargers are equal. Each electric skateboard comes with its own charger and there are no third party chargers that you can buy. So if you buy Yuneec, wait for more than 3 hours until it's fully charged. Why is not it just a normal longboard skateboard?
Even if the price of the electric skateboard decreases, as we hope, why would you not buy long for 50 €, which weighs about 2 kg instead of 7 kg? For some people, a longboard is all they need. But the electric skateboard has a number of great advantages:
Braking: Downhill runs on the hills are easy at the E-Board. Braking with a longboard, however, requires a lot of skill. Even if you drive close to people, an electric plate gives you much more control over your speed and you also have an emergency brake.
Tracking Tracking: If you are on bike paths or roads, you can use a much better electric skateboard to track the flow of other bikes and cars.
Climbing: no explanation required
Faster to your goal: With the Boostted Board you can reach a speed between 24-35 km / h. The longboard is 8-16 km / h.
Cooling: If you drive with warm temperatures, you will be cooled with an electric skateboard instead of welded with a longboard.
These things to consider to choose the best Electric Skateboard. Good luck!
