Chargeboard is a longboard meant to solve the ever present problem of running out of battery after a day out in the sun. When you ride your Chargeboard, you’ll store power in a battery, and then you can use that to charge your smartphone, or whatever you need to tip up, using the phone dock (for iPhone 4/4s currently) or the USB 2 port. There’s even speakers and a 3,5 mm jack if you want to pump some tunes.
So how does it work?
Pretty easy to be honest. The two dynamo’s in the in the rear axles generate 6V each, this electricity is then converted back to a 5V current and gets stored in to a powerbox. So when you’re finished cruising, plug your iphone in the dock and your phone gets charged! In the meanwhile you can listen to some of your favorite tracks.
There are Chargeboards, as well as Chargeboard kits for upgrading your current longboard, among the perks.
