How should you maintain and take care of your electric skateboard?

In this blog post, we are sharing some of the top tips to keep your electric skateboard in the best condition possible.

Battery

Being probably the most expensive component of an electric skateboard, you want to keep the battery running as long as possible.

To protect the battery, please try to use your electric skateboard between the temperature of 10-30℃; otherwise, the battery will age quickly under extremely high or low temperature, resulting in lower battery capacity.

The range will be shortened if the battery life continues to decrease.

Charging

Electric skateboards are usually not fully charged when being shipping out; it is safer for transportation this way and you should fully charge it first before using the board.

The lithium battery has no memory and can be charged at any time. In order to maximize the battery life, please fully charge the battery in time after each use.

If the battery is charged after being completely drained, it will cause excessive discharge of the lithium battery and this will shorten the battery life significantly.

It is strictly forbidden to charge the lithium battery that has been over-discharged (not being able to be charged anymore)! Over-discharged battery is a potential safety hazard. Please dispose of the battery.

If you are not using the electric skateboard for a long time, store it in a cool, dry room and fully charge the battery, keep at least 80% of the power, and at least charge the board at least once every 20 days.

Cleaning

Make sure the electric skateboard is turned off first, unplug the charging cable, and close the charging port.

Wipe the outer casing or deck of the electric skateboard with a slightly damp cloth, taking care not to allow water to get inside the housing of the charging port or ESC so it won't do any damage to the electric skateboard.

Maintenance

Please check the front and back truck regularly and tighten the bolt if it becomes too loose.

A looser truck will be better at turning and carving, though it would give you speed wobbles when riding at high speed; we recommend tightening your back truck more so you can get a more stable ride while still maintaining the smooth turning experience.

The amount the wheels tilt back and forth depends on how tight the trucks are. If you have a board (or a friend's board) that you like, test the tightness on them and try to replicate it in your own board. The amount they wobble right and left relates to how tight they are.

The bolt controls the tightness of the trucks. It points directly to the ground when you're skating, and is found between the wheels.

Your can tighten it with a skate tool or a wrench too.

Turn it clockwise to tighten the trucks, getting tighter turning. Turn it counter-clockwise to loosen the trucks, getting a softer turning feel.

If you start to hear a squeaky sound when riding, please apply a few lubricant on the bushing and pivot cup to reduce the friction.

Please check the front wheels and PU sleeves on each side of the skateboard regularly to see if there is any serious wear and tear and whether there is abnormal noise and wheels being stuck.

Contact an authorized seller to replace damaged or worn wheels and PU sleeves promptly.

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.

Electric skateboards can be very expensive. Some even crack the $1000+ mark. Many riders think they need to spend this much for a quality board, but the Maxfind Max2 Pro shows that isn’t the case. For a very reasonable price, it offers power, range, and great construction.

You can choose between two styles - a single motor edition or dual-motor edition. Let’s take a closer look at the features of both, so you can decide which one works best for you.
