So it’s interesting. A couple of days I ordered this koowheel skateboard with dual hub motors both just 250watt. So that makes 500watt in total and only got a 4.4AH battery. Still it claims to go 40km/h and 35km range, 25 grade. I’m still puzzled about this and I’m trying to figure out whether these Chinese engineers behind that board are geniuses or scammers. I mean, that’s almost the performance of a Raptor, right? What if they silently constructed a revolutinary new hub motor with high performance and low battery usage?
Now I don’t know much about this current stuff and how much watt your beloved self-made DIY motors have, but I suspect a whole lot more. Most likely over 1000w and I suspect that makes them eat through the battery alot faster. I know I’m tapping in the dark here, but I think I made some of you a bit nervous and thinking that their stuff could be blown out off the water by some of these pesky Chinese guys, with their “cheap toy boards”.
