Best Product for the Price
Posted by: lemon from: on
For $500 you get quite a complete package.
- 6 mile range (comparable to the larger competitors)
- Short charge time (mine fully charged in a little over an hour)
- The size and weight are incredible. This thing is lighter and smaller than anything out there.
- Top speed seems like more than enough for the size of the board
- Brake is almost too good.
- Cool app that measures your distances. You have to manually connect bluetooth everytime you ride though.
- Remote could be better (takes some learning to get used to. its very touchy, and there is a huge dead zone. some users report that it gets stuck in max throttle)
- High speed can get squirly because of the size of the board. Not sure if this is a con since this product isn't trying to necessarily compete with the longboards.
- No reverse
- Speed selector on remote is useless. You have to use the app and connect to bluetooth everytime you want to chance the speed.

Doesn't hold up
Posted by: danvp from: on
I loved my blink board for the first couple months but unfortunately it doesn't seem to hold up well. The bottom casing that holds the battery started breaking around the bolts that hold it on. I contacted support and they sent me a new washer set that holds it down in a different way. This worked for about another month and then it started breaking around the new washers.
I think they need to use a better quality of plastic or more rubber or something to absorb vibrations more so there isn't so much stress around these points. The housing near the belt has started to break as well. I only ride it short distances and don't handle it roughly but riding on roads and sidewalks there is always going to be a lot of hard bumps and vibrations that this board can't seem to handle long term. Unfortunately it only came with a 90 factory warranty so I can't get it fixed again.

BEST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK
Posted by: jesse from: on
I bought my blink board a few monthes ago at my local best buy and I LOVE IT! It is so much fun to ride, I literally go around my neighborhood just to cruise around! I use the board to go from my apartment to my university to go to class. if i need to charge up i stop at the starbucks on campus, hang out for about 30 minutes, get a coffee, catch up on homework and I'm off to home. i tell all of my friends who drive to class to get one because it saves so much time to get to class rather than looking for a parking space and walking from a far garage. i was searching for the right electric skateboard for so long that i thought i was going to have to drop $1000+ on one until i came across the blink board. the fact that i didn't have to wait for shipping and i could just walk in an pick one off the shelf was great! the board holds true to word with the top speed of 15 mph, though i wouldn't mind kicking it up some more, as i am an experienced skateboarder and have a need for speed! the controller is small and light, the three speed modes are great fro teaching friends to ride, and its a blast to ride. the board can power through dirst, sand, over small rocks, and even small patch of grass haha! it brings a huge smile on my face everytime i ride! if you are looking for an economical way to get to work, class, or get to a near by friends house, the blink board is the best mode of transportation that wont cost you an arm an a leg. if you want an electic skateboard, get this one!

I like the simple design and the small board made it easy to carry around. The price is right for a last mile commute tool.

Excellent electric skateboard
Posted by: Fausto from: on
I was a little hesitant after reading some negative reviews, but after owning it for a month I must say this is an excellent electric skateboard. I used it several times a week and the experience has been great so far. It charges quickly, the battery lasts as advertised, the riding experience si very smooth and it goes way faster than I can normally use in the city. So I mostly use it in normal mode, and only switch it up to Pro occasionally. Overall, a great product.
