The Ultimate Guide To Choosing Best Electric Skateboard

When you choose your first electric skateboard, which features you should take care of? Quality? Speed? or Looking outside? I think quality is the most important for the electric skateboard. I will show you which features you must pay attention to.



90% of electric skateboards utilize the rechargeable lithium-ion batteries rather than the lead-acid because of its superb lightness. However, you should take note of their lifetime because lithium-ion batteries vary between different manufacturers. On average, they go roughly 1000 cycles.

Battery life is another worth-considering factor, especially for those riders who intend to go on long distances or communicating. Two important things you need to know when choosing the battery are mileage and speed.

For fun, the mileage of 8-13 miles is great while 10 miles and up to suit for transportation. Speed is a preference issue, it’s up to you!



Check the overall wattage of the electric skateboard’s moto that can supply. However, it’s not true that the higher the wattage, the faster. What exactly influences its speed are the gear ratios and the motor controller parameters. Hence, don’t try to pick the highest wattage of all the time. It even gives you some annoyance because of louder operation.

Also, choose between the dual hub and the single motors. If possible, pick the dual one because they are always more powerful than its counterpart.


Wheel quality

The higher the quality of the wheels, the better performance it delivers in terms of feel, ride, acceleration, speed, and handling.

Two major elements influence the overall quality of the wheels are size and hardness.

Soft wheels: Suitable for rough and tough surfaces or terrains as they bring more grip, rolling capacity, and predictable slide.

Harder wheels: Suitable for flat surfaces because they are less grippy. In turns, these wheels roll really fast.


Hill Climbing Ability

Another preference-depending issue! If you want to challenge the nearby hills, consider whether it’s steep or slope to pick the most suitable electric skateboard. While considering, read the description carefully to know and compare the hill grades of the different models. The most powerful motorized skateboard that I have tried ranged up to 35%.


Riding mode

Riding modes vary from product to product but usually within 2-4 options. This is a must-considering feature for beginners for easier starting and immediate riders to graduate to a higher speed.

Riding modes are controlled by wireless remote control so, you also need to check whether it transfers signals well or not.


Above are what I want to tell you when you choose your first electric skateboard. if all these are in quality, just choose it, you will have a good experience when riding on it.

Maxfind FF PlUS

MaxFind’s FF Plus device is another high-performing electric skateboard. It rides the line between being a longboard and a skateboard with a length of just under three feet. This board offers stronger motors than the Max4 Pro, with dual 1200 hub motors providing exceptional torque. This increased power ups the hill climbing potential of the MaxFind FF Plus to 35%. Its top speed of 24 miles per hour is solid, and the highest strength battery option allows riders to go for up to 33 miles without a charge of the battery. This device comes standard with large 165 mm wheels, giving it great off-road and high-speed concrete capabilities. 

Both the Max4 Pro and the FF Plus come equipped with four distinct riding modes, which makes them ideal for riders who are still learning or looking to improve their skills gradually.

Maxfind Max 4 Pro Review – Can it compete?

Maxfind, a Chinese brand that has been around since the beginning of time. A brand that delivers budget boards in nice packages for casual eskaters, but has always been ignored by eskate enthusiasts, as their price vs value proposition was not as high as the other Chinese brands. If you have read my previous takes on Chinese brand, you might have sensed that I hated the brand, that’s because their product and marketing strategies made me feel that they are just preying on the less informed buyers.

Well, that idea of mine has been shaken up with the new lineups that Maxfind introduced awhile ago, and today, we are going to talk about the Maxfind Max 4 Pro.
