4 Tips to Keep a Healthy Battery in your Electric Skateboard
Go ahead, ride across the state! Just swap in another battery when you run out of juice on the go.
What range can you get?
From our testing data (and we push the boards hard!), we get the following range:
Dual: 8-18 Miles. The range depends on a number of factors like rider weight, terrain etc. The more optimal your conditions, the longer you can ride!
Why is the range longer than other boards?
The Dual comes with a high capacity 144WH lithium battery.
WH = Watt Hours, is a measurement of the total energy in a battery
This is more capacity than popular boards like the Boosted 2 (99WH), Boosted Mini S (99WH), and Inboard (97WH).
Not only does it have more battery capacity, but with less moving parts (NO BELTS = less friction = more efficient), Miles boards can achieve incredible range.
Beware: Many electric skateboard brands (especially the budget ones) don’t even publish their battery capacity. Are they afraid you’ll find out the truth?
How long does it take to charge?
Typically 1-2 hours, slightly longer if completely dead.
Can I get another high capacity battery?
Yes, you can get it here.
Can you change the battery?
Yes, you can swap the battery out in about 5-10 minutes. Just remove the deck lid, turn the battery off, remove the cover, unplug the battery and insert your new battery. This feature is great for those that want a looong ride!
