The VergeBoosted has just announced the second generation of its popular (and pricey) electric skateboard. The new version looks almost exactly the same as the original, but it offers swappable batteries (including longer-range options), a better Bluetooth connection with the remote, and a water-resistant build.
Business InsiderOne thing is for sure, electric skateboards are cooler and way more fun than those ridiculous hoverboards. I spent some time with the new second generation electric skateboard from one of the biggest names in the business, Boosted Board, and I'm not looking forward to returning it.
The VergeAs the niche category of electric skateboards has taken off, the ones from Boosted have consistently been the best. Sure, there are boards that are smaller, or cheaper, or both. Others offer more range than Boosted's paltry 6-8 miles. But those other boards come with big tradeoffs in size or ease of use.
