Can I use a 16000mah powerbank for electric skateboard?

Dear people,

I have a powerbank with 16000 mAh can i use it for an e-skateboard? It has 3 usb outputs en one micro conector (like the charge con of samsungs).

This is rowed on the powerbank.

Capacity:16000mAh, 3,7V/48Wh(MAX) Input5V=1a(max) Output1:DC5V=1A(max). Output2:DC5V=1A(max) Output3:DC5V=2A(max)

No your output current is to low!

Tarzan thank you for your reply,

Do you know where i can buy the right products for a electric skateboard that can go 30 kmph?

Yes! But it’s not that easy for you. I suggest you to do some research first, cause you aren’t in the topic that’s clear.

A all in one solutions comes from Enertion and TorqueBoards will offer one soon.

You can go with Lipos too, but therefor you need some knowledge first.

You would need a battery with at least 22.2v and would recommend 5000mah. I use the venom fly 22.2v 5400mah. Hope I could help!

He actually is offering it right now on pre-order. Should be in by the end of the month! Hop on the pre-order train with me @Tony!

I changed the title & category, putting the question in the title allows people to easily find this later.


there are battery packs meant for lighting LED torchlights & hand phones , gadgets stuffs . and there are battery packs meant for electric personal vehicles , scooters , electric bicycle/motorcycle and the GRAND DADDY of them all . Tesla Model S Battery pack , USED 3,500miles on it @only US $19,950.00 .

i once have that same idea . i have 3 packs of 12V Li ion packs . it will not work . packs that are MEANT for lighter duty ? packs that are MEANT for heavy duty ? lived in two separate world altogether .

it was purchased together with LED strips at an extravagantly overpriced price tags in singapore stores . this one is cheaper on the web . lessons learnt . no longer buying at local SHARK INFESTED stores !,searchweb201602_5_10034_507_10020_10001_10002_10017_10010_10005_10011_10006_10021_10003_10004_10022_10009_10008_10018_10019,searchweb201603_7&btsid=f81fe47e-2ade-48d4-adc9-01f3ef50fd33,searchweb201602_5_10034_507_10020_9912_10001_10002_10017_10010_10005_10011_10006_10021_10003_10004_10022_10009_10008_10018_10019,searchweb201603_7&btsid=dd2136aa-fc04-48b7-bad7-3413f11ddfa3
