Battery died in 2 months. Support said had to buy another one. Not cool. Wouldn't buy these boards again.
We ordered a battery for the long board we purchased for our son several years ago. The delivery was quick and installation was very easy. We wouldn't hesitate to order products from them.
I had to order this battery as a replacement for the one on my board after only five months of use. I emailed them asking what I could do and never got an answer from customer service so I had to order a new battery on my own. Right now the jury is still out for me on the quality of this board but their customer service department wouldn’t even rank one star
Bought this battery for my custom built pin tail electric skateboard. The battery is small, light weight and sealed. I am able to get about 6 miles riding aggressively. This skateboard has a higher top speed (30mph) so it takes a lot of juice. I went with a Backfire battery because they have always worked for me and lasted. Highly recommend for custom boards.
Bought an extra battery to attach to my g2 black in parallel with my existing battery, I get an additional 25km range and able to use my r2 remotes turbo feature with no worries with ruining my battery. I recommend doing this to your g2 black cheaper way of doubling your range
Is this battery compatible with the lycano electric skateboard?
The battery worked as and the shipping was super fast!
I love my doul battery set up it makes a big difference.
Love the Dual battery setup my right time has extended significantly I've already passed the 500-mile mark in less than two months I'm still rolling
Battery works great no issues here!
It has been under a year since buying this a board from this company and we have already had to completely replace the battery and the remote stopped working all together. And buying a new remote is almost another hundred dollars. We have not been rough on this board at all, it’s been on cement the whole time we have had it. Would not recommend. They don’t last long and are expensive
Going to do a dual battery set up on my g2 black. Backfire has been nothing but awesome to deal with!!!!
My backfire board wasn’t working right. customer service got involved and helped me diagnose my problem. I’m back to riding and happy!! Thank uou
I did a duel battery setup because one battery isn't enough for a 250lb rider. I think it's should be more of a standard with 10s4p instead of 10s2p. But the board and controls are awesome but I only put 20 mi on it so far so will see if it lasts the test of time. The remote could use a battery twice the size also. It should last atleast 5-8 rides. You should also sell the inserts that are used to attach battery to board. I waited a couple weeks to see if the upgraded Samsung battery would be available but no luck. Overall I would give the backfire g2 black! a 7.5 out of 10.
We love our Backfire boards! We have the Backfire G2 and recently purchased the Zealot S. The Zealot S has the smoothest ride of any board we have been on!
It does it's job and is easy to remove, my only gripe is that the enclosure cannot be bought separately and that the cables seem to be too cheaply made as there seems to be no method of dust or water resistance to the battery past the enclosure.
