Introduction for building an DIY electric skateboard / DIY electric Longboard by Nicolas Nostheide.
This article is addressed to all readers which are interested in building an DIY electric skateboard, but also for all people which just want to know how an electric skateboard basically works.
For the sake of simplicity I wouldn’t like to go into detail too much but you should have a basic knowledge about electronics.
I want to emphasize once more that electric skateboards are not toys. Especially the handling with electronics can be very dangerous.
Introduction: DIY electric skateboard
An electrical skateboard consists of six components besides the actual longboard. The following article will go into each of those six components:
This tutorial will help you to build your own Onewheel DIY portable charger. The DIY portable charger is capable of charging the Onewheel on the go.
In about 20min you are good to go for another session 🙂 With a large lipo you can charge the OW up multiple times.

Sune Pedersen (CTO & Founder) at Faraday Motion who is software engineer started to develop a 3D printed electric skateboard 3 years ago in Copenhagen. His start up is now based in Berlin.
While you can buy complete boards (AKA Hyperboard) the idea is to customise your board. The first production run (50 units) of the Hyperboard is sold out and was mainly to receive feedback from the community.
