36V 6AH SLIM LITHIUM BATTERY PACK

Slim Lithium Battery Packs Have Arrived!

Our customers have been asking for it, and we listened!  We are developing a thin battery pack for the Metroboard Electric Skateboard!  The batteries are just 24 mm thick (about 1/3 the thickness of our standard pack). However, they are wider and longer so will only fit on a longboard with a wheelbase of about 26″ or longer.  We just recently received 5 samples each of a 36V 6AH and a 36V 8AH pack.  The 36V 6AH is roughly the same capacity as our standard lithium pack, and weighs just 3.6 lbs (about 0.8 lbs less than our standard lithium pack, which weighs about 4.4 lbs), and will offer about a 15 mile range.  The 36V 8AH offers about 1/3 more capacity than our standard lithium pack, and weighs just 4.7 lbs (about 0.3 lbs more than our standard lithium pack which weighs about 4.4 lbs), and will offer an incredible 20 mile range! We plan on using a new sleek longboard deck for the slim packs, along…

Factory Tour of Metroboard Electric Skateboard

The videos below show give you an inside view of how we make the Metroboard Electric Skateboard.  Each Metroboard is handcrafted in the USA with a focus on strict quality control and thorough testing to ensure that the customer gets a high quality product that will survive the rigors of daily use, and provide many years of thrill riding! Some examples of our quality control procedures: Every Battery is fully discharged twice at 15 Amps to make sure it’s delivering the nominal capacity, and to weed out any defective packs before they get to the customer. Every Metroboard goes through a 5 minute “flywheel” test to simulate a rider accelerating and braking to make sure the electronics and motor are performing normally. Every Metroboard goes for an actual test ride to make sure there are no vibration related problems that can only be discovered by actually riding a board. These tests add significant time to our manufacturing process, but we do…

Electric Skateboard First Ride

Excitement from getting on an Electric Skateboard for the first time!

Recent Metroboard customer, Gil, from Israel, shows his enthusiasm going for his first Electric Skateboard Ride!  He plans on using his Metroboard 36″ Gravity Midsize with 97 mm Abec-11 Wheels to bridge the transportation gap between his home and train station, and between the train station and work.  He considered getting an electric bike, but wanted something more compact that he could easily tuck under the train seat. The trains in Israel get very crowded, so it was critical that he had a transportation solution that didn’t limit him to the special “bike” train cars that quickly get filled up during rush hour.

How to Build a Vibration Proof Electric Skateboard

Many of our customers use their Metroboard Electric Skateboard as a daily commuting tool, which they count on to get them to work, the train station, to class, etc.  Just like any other transportation device, our customers rely on their Metroboard to get them to their destination safely, predictably, and without worry about their ride breaking down on the way to their destination.  They need an electric skateboard that can handle the daily rigors and abuse of riding on real roads with less than perfect conditions. Electric skateboards, just like regular skateboards, are ridden on less than perfect roads which subject the product to impact and constant road vibrations.  However, unlike regular skateboards, electric skateboards have many delicate components including, electronics, motors, and batteries. Without proper design to protect against vibration and impact, it’s just a matter of time before one or more of these components fail. We have been building and selling the Metroboard Electric Skateboard for over 7…
