Maintaining your Electric Skateboard
Important Safety information
1. Inspect outer carton for damage and report any to your freight carrier or dealer.
2. Open carton and inspect for internal damage, report any to your freight carrier or dealer.
3. Remove your new Electric Skateboard, remote controller and charger.
Before riding your new Electric Skateboard, please be sure you fully understand how the model you have purchased operates.
The electric Skateboard’s wireless remote uses a unique 3G high frequency radio signal (Bluetooth) for short distance communication, and a one on one coding function between the remote control and the PCB switchboard minimized the possibility of signal interferences. Signal interference may occur under a strong magnetic field. Use caution and check your ride area for signal interference before use.
The Electric Skateboard Troubleshooting If you take off and refit the battery, and the power light is not on, please check the battery to see if it has adequate power and is fixed properly. If they are ok, that means the self-protection has started. There is nothing wrong with the skateboard. When the battery terminals touch the control box terminals, the capacitor on the PCB of controller will be charged by the battery immediately and a momentary short-circuit occurs, so the self-protection kicks in. Just remove the battery and refit. (You may have to repeat this several times). Try not to take off the lithium battery frequently when the skateboard is in service, because when frequently removed and then refitted, the battery is heavy on the terminals. The terminals can be burnt out easily and an electric arc could be generated at the connection section to melt the conductor terminals, which can lead to damage to the battery or controller.
Lithium battery has a double protection system: a. Current-limiting protection. When the current value reaches the set level, the protection system will kick in for the protection of the electronics and will stop all power from your board.
b. Short-circuit protection. In case a short circuit in the controller, motor or battery occurs, protection system will be started for self-protection and power will stop. c. In most cases removing the battery pack and fitting will reset your board and restart it.
Pistol Grip Remote Controller
1. The Pistol Grip Remote Controller regulates the speed of the board. Pulling back on the lever will accelerate the board. Releasing the lever will return it to the neutral position. Pushing forward on the lever will brake.
2. After standing on board, pull the power lever. Your Electric Skateboard will start slowly and build speed as you hold the lever back.
3. To decrease speed, let the lever go. This will slowly decrease your speed. To slow quicker, push the lever forward to brake. Maximum speed and stopping distance depends on your weight and riding surface.
4. Know your limits. Start slowly and keep your speed down until you have mastered controlling your ELECTRIC SKATEBOARD.
5. Read the section titled: “Riding your Electric Skateboard before attempting to ride”.

How to fit a new control box
Flip the board over and connect all wires, then turn on the power, First of all, you need to press the small button(control box reset button), depicted on the picture, on the controller PCB and put the drive wheel on your left side. By standing next to it after turning on the board, you should see the drive wheel turning counter-clockwise. If it is not turning in the direction, press the button again to see if the drive wheel runs counter-clockwise. Make sure the drive wheel runs counter-clockwise before your sync.
Riding Your Electric Skateboard
BEFORE YOU RIDE
Be sure that you are thoroughly familiar with all of the features and controls discussed in the previous sections. All safety equipments should be worn, even when riding for short distances or durations. Make sure that the area in which you plan to ride is paved, level, free of obstacles, and not crowded.
You are able to climb abroad a powerful motorized skateboard. If you have doubts about your ability to ride, DO NOT RIDE IT! Know your limits and ride within them. Even if you are an expert skateboarder, give yourself time to learn the Electric Skateboard and ride conservatively, especially the first few times. Remember, the Electric Skateboard is silent and others will not hear you coming. Give yourself adequate time and distance to stop and avoid obstacles and others.
Make sure the switch to the ELECTRIC SKATEBOARD is “ON” and the switch on the hand controller is “OFF”. Step onto the skateboard and assume normal skateboard stance. Keeping your fingers off the power lever, turn the switch on the top of the controller to the “ON” position. Pull the lever or tap the first finger button for a moment to start the board. Start off slowly by pulling the lever back or remaining in the first tap speed until you become comfortable and are in control of the speed.
Uphill and Downhill Riding
The ELECTRIC SKATEBOARD is far superior to an ordinary skateboard in uphill and downhill riding. On an uphill run, you will find that you need in keep your weight over the rear wheels to keep them from slipping. If the hill is too steep, the board will bog down and continued use may overheat the motor. Stop, step off and walk the steep hills. This board will take lighter riders up hills faster and will slow down as the rider’s weight increases. Take advantage of the reverse and place the driving wheel in front when you are riding uphill. The power board runs more efficient uphill when the driving wheel is in the front. On downhill runs, the motor remains engaged at all times. Providing same drag or button to slow. You also have hill breaking control. Frequent minor speed corrections with the brakes are preferable to letting your speed build and then breaking suddenly. KNOW YOUR LIMITS AND RIDE WITHIN THEM!
NEVER RIDE DOWN HILLS THAT ARE TOO STEEP TO MAINTAIN SAFE TO YOUR ELECTRIC SKATEBOARD. NEVER RIDE DOWN HILLS THAT REQUIRE CONSTANT BREAKING, AS THAT CAN DAMAGE THE BOARD’S ELECTRONICS.
Turning your Electric Skateboard
The Electric Skateboard turns like any other skateboard. Apply pressure to the deck with your heels or toes and the board will turn in that direction. More pressure will result in tighter turns. IF the hands of experienced rider, the ELECTRIC SKATEBOARD is capable of making a complete 180 in a 10” radius Do not try to make turns at full speed. Always SLOW DOWN
