Sortable Comparison Table for the Best Electric Skateboards

The electric skateboard comparison table is sortable, just click on the arrows in the top row. The electric skateboard models are arranged according to alphabetical order. You can press Ctrl-F to search for the board you are looking for. Please note that it is pretty difficult (at least for me) to build an comprehensive table which works neatly on mobile phones. You will get the best user experience if you view it on a desktop.

Best Electric Skateboard evaluating Criteria

How to choose which electric skateboards are the best.

Best electric skateboard Models

I did a lot of research (several weeks) regarding the most popular eboards. I just list reputable electric skateboard companies. I created a table with an in my personal opinion the best electric skateboard models. If you miss e-boards or believe that I should add other boards a well, please let me know in the comment section below.

Price

Electric skateboards cost from $200 to several thousand dollars. The most popular e-boards cost between $400 and $5.000. The price varies from model to model. The big difference in price is determined by various factors like different brands, e-board parts, and customer service. Please note that the prices can vary. The companies constantly change prices and make special sales offers. Therefore check the prices on the manufacturer’s website before you buy an eboard. If you want to know more about the cost determining factors of eboards check out my article.

Top Speed

In today’s world where time has become a precious commodity, being able to move around fast and easily has become essential. Electric skateboards are an innovative solution to this dilemma – they are light, small, portable, and fast. To top it all off, they are a lot of fun to ride. When we want to buy an electric skateboard the question of speed is crucial. If we are spending a relevant amount of money on an eboard we want to make sure that is is fast. 

On average electric skateboards can travel from 18 to 28 mph (29 – 45 km/h). There a few models on the market which can even exceed 40 mph (65 km/h). The top speed differs from model to model and is determined by various factors, like motor power, riders weight, terrain, and even wheel size. If you want to know more about the top speed of electric skateboards, check out my article.

Range

For daily commutes or long trips, the range of an electric skateboard is crucial. So, how far can an electric skateboard go? Depending on the model, electric skateboards can go up to 12-20 miles on average without charging. However, these advertised range claims are stated by the manufacturers and it doesn’t necessarily mean that the e-boards will last that many miles. The range of electric skateboards is determined by a lot of factors. The most important one is the battery size. Factors that impact the range also are: driver’s weight, average speed, uphills and downhills, the motor power, average wheel size, wind, and outside temperature.

What determines an eboards range? Can I increase the range of my board, if yes, how? If you want to know more about these topics check out my article here.

Weight

When buying an electric skateboard one of the main question is how much they weigh. These boards are fitted with an electric motor and a battery which reduces human efforts tremendously but also add additional weight.

A typical electric skateboard weighs from 15 to 28 pounds (6,8 to 12,8 kg). The weight of e-skateboards varies and depends on the size of the battery, motor, deck, trucks and wheels. If you are got curious about the determining factors on eboards weight or you want to know how you can reduce the weight check out my article here.

Battery Size

Battery size is clearly the most important factor when it comes to range. The bigger the battery the more range you get. The Battery Size is in fact a pretty good indicator of electric skateboard range. Electric skateboard companies do not necessarily tell the truth when stating the range of their models, they have no incentive to be very honest about their models’ ranges. Most of them will exaggerate their numbers to boost sales. Some eboards riders came up with a good rule of thumb which 5 miles per 100Wh. Do not only pay attention to the range of an electric skateboard but also the battery´s capacity measured in Wh.

Air Travel friendliness

I think we all love our electric skateboards and some of us dream to take our boards on travels with us. To experience a foreign city or even country with our eboard would just be awesome! But there is one big problem! Safety! The problem is the big Lithium-ion battery. If damaged, short-circuited, heated, or sometimes because of bad design, these batteries may catch fire and explode. This is a pretty serious and dangerous situation and of course, should be avoided during flights. Electric skateboards with a battery capacity of less than 160 Wh you should be able to take them on a plane. But airlines have the last word and can still say no and some of them unfortunately do. It is not allowed to transport any batteries with capacities more than 160 Wh on planes. Battery sizes between 100 and 160 Wh will need approval from the airlines and they are only permitted as carry-on baggage. Due to the big battery capacities, the majority of eboards are not made for air travels. If you want to know the best way to travel with your electric skateboard check out my article on air travel.

So if you read “Yes” on my chart or Drag and Drop Tool then it means the battery size is less than 100 Wh. If I have written “Maybe” then the battery size is between 100 and 160 Wh. And if I stated “No (Yes)” then the battery size is changeable and at least one configuration (often the travel battery) is smaller than 160 Wh.

Recharge Time

Some of us wonder how long does it usually take to charge an electric skateboard? It is an important question when it comes down to buying an eboard. It can determine which model we decide. But how long does it take to charge an electric skateboard? On average it takes 2 to 5 hours to fully charge an electric skateboard. Charging time is dependent on the battery size and the power output of the charger. Therefore charging time differs a lot from model to model.

Hill Climb Ability

If you are living up or down a hill, or if your work way is tied to going up or downhill. Then an electric skateboard could be your perfect commute solution. But not every eboard is made for going uphill constantly. Therefore you want to be sure that the board meets the required specs for going up. Key factors to consider when riding with an electric skateboard uphill are: Gradient percentage, riders weight, motor power, torque, battery power output.

Water Resistance / IP Rating

I’m wondering are electric skateboards actually waterproof? Well it depends, the majority of electric skateboards is not waterproof. But some of the boards are water-resistant. Water-resistant means that electric skateboards won’t let water in easily. So if you drive on a wet road your board should not break. But if you skate over puddles or even submerge your board into the water there is a high likelihood that water will get to electric parts.

We can judge the water resistance by “IP rating”. However, it is a little more complicated than that. The IP rating is optional and costs money. So not every brand will have IP ratings even if their boards met the standards. I ordered the models in my comparison chart in the following categories:

No official information/ IP rating from the manufacturer or brand
IP 54 definition: (Dust protected) (Spraying water)
IP 55 definition: (Dust protected) (Splashing of water)
IP 65 definition: (Dust tight) (Splashing of water)

But riding an electric skateboard on wet roads is not necessarily a good idea. The pavement is very slippery when it’s wet. Making turns can be very dangerous. Accelerating and braking should be also done with caution when riding on wet streets because the chance that your board slips away is high. If you’re a beginner, avoid riding in the rain or wet conditions. More experienced riders might take the chance, wear your helmet, be careful and follow the tips written in my article.

Max Load – Max Weight Limit

When we want to buy an electric skateboard it is important to know whether or not the e-board will support the rider’s weight. On average electric skateboards have weight limits from 200 to 330 lbs (90 to 150 kg). The maximum riders weights are determined by structural factors of the electric skateboard. Especially the deck defines the maximum capacity that electric skateboards can carry. There are various reasons why the weight limit on your electric skateboard is vital to consider:

  • Safety reasons (especially braking)
  • Performance
  • Range
  • Lifespan
