ACTON BLINK S (Electric Skateboard) Finally Arrived!

ACTON BLINK S electric skateboard that I ordered on Indiegogo finally arrived today!

The Acton Blink S finally arrived at my doorstep today.

It’s been three months since the original shipment date of December but it was well worth the wait.

Here it is!

It’s pretty heavy.

I had to pay taxes of 1700 yen upon delivery so shipping cost was around 10,000 yen ($79 to the shipping agent).

Shippiing was $150 on INDIEGOGO so I was able to save around $50.

Let’s open it up shall we!

Because I was a INDIEGOGO backer, it came with a backpack an extra charger.

The backpack is actually pretty good.

It’s got a lot of pockets so it can work as an everyday backpack.

It holds the ACTON BLINK S nicely too.

You can strap the board onto the Peak Design Everyday Backpack too.

But the ACTON BLINK S is quite heavy and I’m worried that the thin straps of the Everyday Backpack will break so I won’t be doing this.

A light board like the Penny Board shouldn’t be a problem.

The board itself looks really nice.

The build quality is amazing.

The wheels are super huge at 83mm.

The board is larger than a Penny Board and is a smaller than a regular skateboard.

Let’s power her on!

Once you turn on the power, the lights on the side light up.

You can’t turn off the side lights.

When you turn on the remote, the lights in the front/rear light up.

You can turn the front/rear lights on and off using the app.

You’ll use the app to switch between the different modes (beginner, normal, pro) so you should download the app.

The board comes preset on pro mode.


Recharge the ACTON BLINK S

One thing that’s awesome about the ACTON BLINK S is that it stands up!

It won’t take up that much space.

The board came 85% charged.

The remote uses two triple A batteries, which comes included.

You can go skating right out of the box.


Rode the ACTON BLINK S (just a little)

It was raining today and I still wasn’t feeling well so I tried out the board inside my apartment building.

It is fast!

The brakes are on the strong side so I almost fell forward!

Definitely have to get used to it.

March 27, 2017 update

I rode the board a little more today and the brakes aren’t so abrupt as yesterday.

Maybe the brakes need some “break in”.

Nonetheless, this is going to be fun!

I really want to get better soon so I can take it outside!
