Specs are pretty decent for this, and at $299 it seems like a good buy "At a mere 9.7 lbs Leafboard is the lightest freestyle electric skateboard available today. It reaches speeds of up to 19 mph and has a single-charge range of 11.5 miles."

@kristofertm it's only 299 during fundraiser, then it's 650.

@passingnotes @kristofertm Even $650 is cheaper than similar alternatives. Still puts is well out of my price range, but....

@passingnotes better get 'em while they're hot!

@zefareu Agreed. $650 is still a decent price. My E-Go was about $800, but I like that this one is lighter and more compact. Bringing bigger boards around with you is more of a hassle than I thought.

@kristofertm @passingnotes I think it was sneaky to put the tag line as the fundraising price.

FINALLY! Inexpensive electric skateboards!
David Carpe@passingnotes · Thinker & Layabout
it's going to retail at 650, so how is that super affordable? you just locked out the college market with that price imho

A lot of this makes me skeptical. For example: The specs say it has a 5000mAh battery, but that a full charge of an iPhone 6 Plus will only reduce the range by 1.25 miles. Settings aside how bizarre and unfocused of a feature this is, the iPhone 6 Plus is a 2915mAh battery. That's almost 60% of the battery in the board, yet somehow only going to reduce the range by 10%?

@cyborgnation Math aside - kill that feature. If you're hard core enough to carry around an electric skateboard, you can carry an external battery for your devices. ;)

@larsvedo @cyborgnation I don't think either of you skate or commute - This feature is fantastic. If you dont drive a car you often run out of battery and carrying one is a hassle.

@kieran_daniels @cyborgnation I hear ya, but I've put 1200km on my Boosted Board this year by commuting basically everyday (and lots of weekend trips!). I would "like" that feature, but am more than happy without it for some extra juice.
David@boxcardavid · startup fella, physicistish, techie
@cyborgnation I'm insanely suspicious of this thing as most boards are cheap pieces of shit sourced from Alibaba, but MilliAmpHours is not a complete measurement of energy so it's not necessarily misleading. Electrical energy is measured in Watt-Hours, which is Amps*Volts*Time. For some awful reason phone manufacturers like to quote an incomplete Amps*Time (mAH) and leave out the voltage of the system which is needed to measure total energy storage. Most likely this runs at 12-20volts and so the watt-hours is enough to charge a phone. Also, most likely this thing is vaporware, a scam, or super shitty.

@kieran_daniels @larsvedo Do you even Skate, bro? Actually, I do skate, and I don't drive a car. I agree, commuters do often run out of battery, but carrying an external battery is cheap and way less of a hassle than only being able to charge when i'm not riding and having to constantly consider if I'll have enough range left to warrant charging my phone.
