Electric skateboards are a relatively new invention within the last decade or so. They’re more than just a fun spin on skateboards, they’re more like a completely new genre of action sports vehicles. Not only that, but they’re also excellent as a new age means of transportation. Looking for a small model? Try the Swagtron spectra electric skateboard.

Review of the Juiced Electric Skateboard
Smooth & Silent
When most of us think about the sound coming from an electric skateboard, we don’t really get a pleasant visual. There’s always that one neighbor who’s riding around at the most inconvenient times of day, every single day. Some electric skateboards sound like a small freight train, while others sound like a broken dirt bike.
The good news is that the Juiced Board Dual doesn’t sound like either. It’s actually incredibly quiet compared to almost any other electric skateboard or longboard. They use special technology that silences the sound of the motor down to the point where it almost sounds like a regular skateboard. Instead of hearing a loud motor all day, all you’ll hear is the sound of the tires rolling on the ground.
Well, how about the smoothness of the ride? While most electric skateboards and longboards are still having trouble producing a non-bumpy ride, this electric board has a smooth ride. Coasting along with the acceleration and torque, this skateboard has no problem riding like a normal board. They also have special modes that allow you to choose to speed, which you can select based on how comfortable you are with riding on the board. This translates to a smoother ride according to your comfort level and skill of riding their electric skateboard.

Another important feature of any electric skateboard is the wireless remote. Without a remote, there would be nothing to propel you forward to your next destination. Most wireless remotes for electric boards only have a couple function. Usually, they just have accelerated and brake/decelerate. However, the Juiced Board Dual has quite a few more features.
With this wireless remote, you can accelerate and slow down, but with four separate modes. This is kind of a huge reason why the Juiced Boards always stick out from the other brands. They focus on entertaining and listening to all skill levels and riders, which makes for a much more customizable experience.
Instead of just sticking with one or two levels, the whopping four-speed options you’ll have is some of the highest we’ve seen! The truth is, there’s no such thing as a beginner who suddenly becomes an expert. Why would any company think someone could be a beginner rider and then suddenly become ready to use their product at the highest level?
The four modes allow you to gradually increase the acceleration with your comfort level and slowly get the hang of it all. Riding an electric skateboard is probably unlike anything you’ve ever done before, and this brand realizes that. Don’t feel pressured to become an expert, go at your only pace and increase the speed mode whenever it feels right!
The Powerful Motor & Battery
Electric skateboards are nothing without a decent motor and battery. After all, that’s the only thing that propels them. The 2018 Juiced Board Dual has an excellent motor that allows it to reach speeds of 20 miles per hour for up to 6 to 7 miles! It’s the perfect range to get you around town or simply have a little fun around the block, almost like the Blitzart electric skateboard we’ve reviewed.
Battery charging time is generally the area where a lot of electric skateboards and longboards suffer. You’ll see a lot of models ranging from 10 to 12 and sometimes 14 hours to charge all the way. However, the Dual electric board only needs a total of 80 minutes to reach maximum charge! That’s 10 minutes less than just an hour and a half!
Usually a lithium-ion battery, these electric boards last a very long time. Li-ion has been known to have a much quicker charge time and a much longer overall life than any other type of battery. Many brands use lower quality batteries which makes their product cheaper to produce and sell, which might look nice to the buyer at first. However, after only a year or two, they start to go slower, charge slower, and eventually they die off completely.
+ Long-lasting battery.
Using a lithium-ion battery, these electric boards go much further and have a much longer overall life than other brands. Unfortunately, the other brands try to sell for cheaper, which makes you waste your money on a product that dies in a year. Luckily, Juiced Boards uses only the best of the best: Li-ion.
+ Smooth, quiet ride.
These boards are made to be silent when riding, for many reasons. Nobody likes to hear a skateboard that sounds like a dying dirt bike goes up and down the street, so we all know you don’t want to be that neighbor! These electric boards are made to be as quiet as a regular skateboard, which is pretty much completely silent aside from the rolling tires.
+ Long-lasting 6 to 7 miles range.
At 20 miles per hour, you can safely cruise the town without worrying about breaking down. When electric skateboards first came out, they only lasted about 45 minutes or so before slowing to a halt. With a 6 or 7 miles range, you can make it to the store and back without an issue.
+ The wireless remote included with the 2018 Juiced Board Dual have 4-speed modes to allow you to find your comfort zone. When you’re ready to step it up a notch, you can increase your mode safely. Many other brands only have two modes, which is never enough to slowly increase your speed at a comfortable pace.
– Compared to some brands, 6 to 7 miles isn’t too impressive of a range. That being said, it’s still far more than enough to get you from A to B in style. You can also monitor your battery life on the wireless remote. Peace of mind is always a nice feature!
– 20 miles an hour is very impressive, but a few other brands boast speeds up to 31 miles an hour. That being said, those electric boards sometimes have law restrictions in certain areas, while this board doesn’t.
Who is it Suitable For?
This board is suitable for many different types of people. Anyone looking to find a better, more uniquely fun mode of transportation would absolutely love one of these electric boards. They’re fast enough to get you around, but they’re able to navigate foot traffic at a much more controllable pace than a car ever could.

Why We Like It
We really like the 2018 Juiced Board Dual because it’s eco-friendly and efficient. With all the different methods of transportation that send off more gas emissions, we really wanted to find something that was battery-power and efficient. When we first set out on this mission, we instantly knew that electric skateboards were going to be a hit because they send off zero emissions at all!
M1 Electric Skateboard Inboard Technology Battery
One of the cons of this product that we listed was the mileage range being too short. 6 to 7 miles isn’t the most impressive, but it still manages to get the job done. However, if you’re looking to get more longevity from a single charge from your electric board, the M1 Electric Skateboard by Inboard Technology Battery lasts up to 10 miles in range. Getting around town with one of these should be no problem at all.
What’s even better is that fact that these batteries are approved for air travel, which means you can take it wherever you go. Many other batteries aren’t, due to hazardous possibilities. Not only is it awesome that you can bring these batteries on board, but doesn’t the fact that their air travel approved make you feel a little safer riding with one of them? If airplanes are willing to let you bring these batteries are board, they have to be completely safe!
