Blink Lite is ACTON’s newest and most advanced electric skateboard to date. Weighing in at just 7.7lbs., it is now the World’s Lightest Electric Skateboard! Blink Lite is the ideal board for cruising--from coasting down boardwalks to quick rides to the corner store. While retaining its length and LED strip from Blink Board, Blink Lite has a redesigned fishtail shaped deck which maximizes riding comfort and portability. Blink Lite introduces an in-wheel hub motor which is quieter, more efficient, longer lasting, and requires low maintenance. This allows for smooth acceleration, braking, and uninterrupted cruising. The lightweight remote gives riders the ability to control the speed of the board, along with added features that include a reverse function. Blink Lite can get up to top speeds of 10 mph while reaching a range of 5 miles. It also has the option to change its speed settings from beginner, normal, and pro via Bluetooth with the ACTON app. Speed Modes: Beginner/Normal/Pro Charger Input: 110v-240v Deck Material: Canadian Maple Includes: Remote Control Note: Blink Lite can travel 5 miles on a full charge - this range is tested under ideal conditions with average weight, smooth, level surfaces in beginner mode. Heavier weight, hills, and bumpy surfaces with pro mode will reduce the range. Shipping Note: Shipping to Alaska, Hawaii, P.O. Boxes, and APO addresses is not available for this item

I weigh 190 lbs. I think top speed on flat ground has been about 7 mph, but it's hard to say because the acton app is really buggy, especially when trying to switch back and forth between another app like pokemon go. You only need the app to change speed modes. This is easier to push than my penny board when it's off, so don't worry about getting stranded with a dead battery unless you're really lazy. Acceleration from a stop isn't great, but I always push to start anyway and I am too heavy. Pushing to start seems to really help the battery life and my patience, but it's not necessary. There are some gentle slopes in my neighborhood and the brakes really help me stay at a decent speed. Uphill at my weight the motor works as an assist so I can push a reasonable amount instead of hopping off and walking or pushing non stop. It would pull me by itself, slowly. On bumpy older streets it's nice to let the motor do the work instead of constantly pushing. I don't know how other boards work, but the hub motor seems to take a little bit to spin up to speed when you engage it while you're moving. It's not excessive or irritating, and might be the mode I have it in.
Also, I thought it looked so dumb in the picture that I almost bought another board for way more money. It actually looks nice IRL. Why they've plastered that dumb marketing photo all over the web I don't know. It's certainly not helping them.
Through a series of unfortunate events I backed over the board and rear trucks with my 5,000 lb Jeep Wrangler. It's still perfectly fine. Acton makes a great product. Just fix the app already, it makes Pokemon Go think I'm trying to cheat.
-- EDIT --
OK, I found a real bummer besides the short battery life. When your battery runs out and you go for the "free wheeling" kick, there is one little problem. The motor wheel doesn't spin as fast as the other ones, so you can't go straight for more than a few feet. So yes, you can kick it, but no, you don't wanna. Major PITA. In the other hand, if your total commute is under 4 miles, you're fine.
Need to figure out a way to add more batteries to this almost perfect board...
Well, now just after two months of daily usage the motor wheel started to make noises. Mind you, that's just two miles a day for about 70 days. Not very resilient. Two stars deducted.
***EDIT EDIT EDIT***
What do you know. Even though the board presented problems early on, customer service came through and took care of it. So I'm updating back to five stars because good customer service is hard to find these days. And because the board is still fun to ride. Definitely recommend it for short rides or beginners. It's light, small and if you're skinny like me it will take you around town. I now have a bigger/faster one for long rides, but I use this one for errands around town so I don't have to deal with parking spaces. I don't know why the whole world is not riding electric skateboards or electric scooters (for the more feeble)? If you live in a big city they're ideal.

NICE: The LED lights are neat, but remember it's completely cosmetic, it won't light up the path in front of you - not like that's what they...Read more
