Hi I am a 13 year old working on an electric skateboard project, but I need a battery, charger, and motor. It would be very helpful and much appreciated if you could help me figure out witch parts work together and witch dont. Thank you!
If you are planning on buying a factory made electric skateboard truck with motor included then the project would consist primarily of installing the electrical components which make the motor operate.
The batteries, battery charger, and controller that would be used for the project depends upon the Voltage and Wattage of the motor being used. The throttle could be leashed to the skateboard with its wire cable. A simple throttle system could consist of a 6" long 7/8" diameter wood dowel with a thumb throttle attached to it that you hold the assembly in one hand and use your thumb to activate the throttle to control the motors speed. This would allow you to move your arms around to keep balance which is necessary on a skateboard.
If you know how you want to build the skateboard and the type of truck and motor you want to use please let us know so we may further advise on the parts that would be needed for the project.
