Interested in buying an electric skateboard, but don’t want to spend too much money? Maybe you want to try out an electric skateboard for your commute but don’t want to spend $500 to $1,000 or more right off the bat? Or perhaps interested in the best electric skateboard for a child or pre-teen? We’ve reviewed most of the cheap electric skateboards out there. Keep reading this cheap electric skateboard review to see what AAB thinks are the best cheap electrics and a few runners up.
There are a few popular cheap electric skateboards that we’ve left out of this review. Any electric skateboard that isn’t available for purchase by you today has been left out. A bunch of cheap electric skateboards popped up on Kickstarter and Indiegogo over the years, but many aren’t available yet. Some that are available either didn’t live up to expectations or still have production problems. All of the cheap skateboards we found and reviewed are available now for purchase. Maybe some of those crowd funding projects will turn into really awesome and affordable electric skateboards, but since many have had years of production delays we didn’t bother to review any electric skateboard you couldn’t go buy today.
When buying a cheap electric skateboard, there are a few things to keep in mind. All of the boards we reviewed are available for under $400, and most are closer to $200. You definitely won’t get the same quality level compared to some of the highest rated electric skateboards out there, which can reach $1,500 or more.
Still, there are plenty of reasons to stick with one of the cheaper electric boards we reviewed, besides just the price. After reviewing these boards, we came up with the best cheap electric skateboard for kids, for your commute, and then the best entry level board if you just want to try one out. We also included a couple runners up, so keep reading to check out our full cheap electric skateboard review!
