Boosted 2nd Generation Dual+ Electric Skateboard

Use: Commuting to and from work (2 miles each way) and to travel with to commute to and from hotels!

First let’s do a little house keeping

1.) For those who complain about range. First, boosted boards have a much higher wattage motor than other boards.. this is how they achieve their speed and how they are able to climb hills.. But, the standard battery is just under the TSA limit of being able to be carried on a plane.. Keep in mind, boosted does offer a higher capacity battery but legally, it can’t be carried on planes. Since I use this for travel, I need the standard battery. Just charge whenever you see an outlet that’s open! Simple!

2.) I never skateboarded in my life when I got one of these.. By day two I was traveling over 10MPH without any issues.. day one was a piece of cake as well but I took it slow to learn.. Basically, you don’t have to be a skateboarder or longboarder to use this!

Pros
1.) Plenty of Speed
2.) Easy to use and learn
3.) Two battery sizes available. That that is TSA air travel friendly and one thats not, but gets a long range.
4.) Saves Money – Yes these are pricy but think about one trip that requires Uber, Cabs, or whatever.. how much do you spend? Exactly, these end up saving money and saving it very quickly..
5.) Most parts are standard so can be changed easily BUT boosted does use some of the best parts out there (again, making this board a good value) so upgrades shouldn’t be needed.
6.) Charges Faily quickly so easy to charge while at work or whatnot.. can be charged at any outlet. I have charged mine in coffee shops while I wait, donut shops, fast food joints that are setup for laptop charging and more.. if you charge anywhere you can, you shouldn’t need to worry about running out of juice.. mines never been dead
7.) Fairly easy to manually push if you are out of juice
8.) Although not recommended, accidentally hitting water or running into puddles has never bothered mine.. I try not to use it on days where they are calling for rain but have been caught in a few storms or pop-up showers.. never had any issues
9.) Great quality board.. has just enough give to make it comfortable, but strong enough not to worry about it breaking

Overall: Simple to use, easy to learn, great distance, and very high quality!

GOAL ZERO NOMAD 100 Solar Panel

I really enjoy this panel! Very durable and wonderful output

Example: One day I was cleaning my panel inside.. I noticed the “power light” was on.. I measured it’s output and I was receiving 13 Watts inside my apartment from the sun shining through the windows! Outside on a good day I average about 45 – 50watts and it has peaked at 62 Watts.

Tips: Remember, a 100watt solar panel will probably never hit 100watts! Atmosphere, weather conditions, time of day, and even the length of your cord all affect the output of a panel.. a good panel, you can expect about 50% of it’s output on average.

Pros
1.) Durable!
2.) Works well with Goal Zero Yetis
3.) Excellent Output
4.) Long cable (about 6ft)
5.) Extension Cables available (keep in mind, the Goal Zero brand cables lose about 1% output per ft)

Cons
1.) Price – However, I own several 80 – 100 Watt panels and the Goal Zero is built better than any of them! Plus, it is full of technology and great American support.. A lot of my other panels have Chinese support and while there is nothing wrong with that, I simply can’t pick up a phone and call.. With Goal Zero you can

Overall: Great Panel, I highly recommend it

Tips
1.) This is designed to charge battery generators or other power packs.. Works much better if you do! I can charge my Yeti 150 fully in about 4 hours with this
