19-MPH Skateboard Is An Electric Dream Come True
Hammacher Schlemmer has a wide, wide variety of wares. It carries everything from cups to 3D webcams, so it's no surprise to hear that it also carries electric skateboards that even Marty McFly would be jealous of. The newest gizmo to grace the company's electronic storefront is the 19-MPH Skateboard, which is exactly what you'd think: a motorized skateboard that travels at up to 19 mph.
The board is powered by a 36-Volt battery and it hosts a 600-watt motor; it's capable of hitting its top speed in just 4 seconds, and it can supposedly head up hills and over terrain without issue. Both acceleration and braking are handled via a remote wireless trigger, and the battery provides a range of up to 10 miles from a four-hour charge. It weighs 40 pounds, and it has 4"-diameter solid urethane wheel; it's 10.5" wide and is built from a maple veneer wood. It'll handle loads up to 225 lbs., and it's a surefire way to make any dream come true this Christmas. It's available now for $599.95, and we hear insurance is exceptionally cheap.
