Hey, Dual model (20 mph top speed, Climbs 20% grade hills, Standard range (7 miles)) retail in USA is $1300 so I'd offer for $1380. I need to check about if it's ok to carry the battery pack in airplane luggage though.
Hi Joel, thanks for your response. I have read also about carrying the electric long board battery pack in the airplane, it seems some of the airplane will allow the passenger to carry it as long as you detach the battery and carry it into the cabin, while the board must be check-in to the luggage.
Please read the following link for further detail and emails inquiries to some of the airlines: http://www.electricskateboardhq.com/travelling-on-flight-with-an-electric-skateboard-read-this/
I was thinking to get the extended battery for the extra miles, but the capacity exceed 160Wh, So I can only opt for Dual with standard battery. Let me know once you heard something from the airlines.
Hi Joel, I've checked it to Boosted customer service as well.=====Hank (Boosted) May 25, 9:35 AM PDT Guidelines for airline treatment of lithium battery-powered electronic devices in passenger baggage are issued by the International Air Transport Association (IATA). IATA’s current guidelines stipulate the following for portable electronic devices brought aboard a passenger aircraft as either checked or carry-on baggage:1. The device must have a watt-hour rating of less than or equal to 100Wh.2. The battery design must have been tested to a test standard referred to as “UN38.3.”Our standard range battery meets both of these requirements and is marked as such, as does the battery on the 1st gen board.Our extended range battery exceeds 100Wh and therefore cannot be taken on a commercial flight.
Although IATA’s guidelines are widely adopted within the airline industry, each airline defines its own regulations. In response to hoverboard safety concerns, a number of airlines have implemented a ban on hoverboards in passenger baggage. Our product is not a hoverboard. Some airlines view our product as falling into the hoverboard category, and others do not. We highly suggest calling the airline prior to travel, especially if you plan to take your board on an international flight.
The optimal way to transport the board is to place the board in the box it came in, and check it in as luggage. Many of our customers have also successfully brought the board on as carry-on and placed it in the overhead bins, in the coat closet, or in other available cabin space with the assistance of a flight attendant. We recommend you remove the lithium battery warning sticker on the box when bringing the board on a passenger plane. It is only required for commercial air cargo transport.
Let me know if you have any questions.Hank Customer Support-Stoke Team
