Frequently Asked Questions
Why did I choose JKING?
Our factory has been involved with electric skateboards for years. We have adapted to the growing demand for more power, faster and longer rides, and keep up to date with the latest motors and batteries using our tried and true circuit boards and Bluetooth remotes.
We take pride in our customer service in all of our growing regions and intend to continue to expand or customer support team to provide the best service possible.
Our circuit boards and electrical components are tested under all extreme conditions so we know your boards are built to last using the best and latest technology in the field. The boards are also designed to be modular, so in the unlikely event of a problem, we can ship any part quickly with a clear instructional video on how to replace it, which means your time away from the board is kept to a minimum.
We offer a 180 day warranty from the time of purchase, and we can contact our service team directly if you need to.
We offer local shipping services and local customer service in the US and EU.
JKING has been on the market for a long time, so you can trust that the brand is not going away.
Are my JKING panels waterproof?
The longboard is not waterproof, but has a waterproof rating of IP55.
A quick trip over a small puddle on dry ground will not damage the board, but do not submerge the board in water and stop riding if conditions cause water to accumulate on the road or track. Do not ride in the rain or on any wet ground with water on it, this can lead to a high risk of water damage and possible long term damage to the bearings and deck.
When you accidentally get the board wet, it is important to dry the board with a rag and then use the motor and remote control to spin the wheel for two minutes to remove the excess water. If the board does go through deeper water, you must make sure to remove the case and gently dry any visible water with a towel, then place the board in a warm, dry place and do not charge the board or try to use the board while the battery compartment is at risk of water ingress, which can lead to a high risk of water ingress or even fire in the lithium battery.
Never leave a wet board upside down in a humid environment, as this can cause water to bypass the seals and enter the electronics.
How do I store the board?
If the JKING e-board is not to be used for a long period of time, store the board fully charged and then discharge it at least 50% after a maximum of three months and then fully charged. Repeat the process if the board is to remain unused, or better yet, hand it over to someone who will use it.
What kind of braking system does the JKING board have?
All JKING boards are equipped with a hub motor with regenerative braking. When driving and braking downhill, you actually return some energy to the battery, so you brake downhill and drive longer.
How much weight can JKING carry?
Each of our boards has a specific weight, but typically the maximum load is 260 lbs (120 kg).
We recommend a maximum weight of 245 lbs (100 kg) and below for best performance, as exceeding this weight may affect distance and speed as well as ability on slopes.
Can JKING be used like a normal skateboard without power?
Yes, our skateboards are perfectly suited for propulsion and will ride like a traditional skateboard when not on the throttle or without a battery.
Can the batteries be replaced?
The battery can be replaced and our boards have a battery life of 500 deep cycles. After 300-500 full cycles, the battery will still work, but will only have about 70% of its charge and capacity. New batteries are easy to order and replace. If you need a replacement battery, simply order online at our website: https://jkingboard.com/
Some tips for keeping your battery longer:
- Do not overcharge or leave it on the charger overnight.
- Do not leave it empty for long periods of time.
- It is best to charge it less frequently by filling it up when it is as low as 10%, etc.
- When storing the board without use for several months, keep the battery at 50% or about halfway, not empty or full.
- Do not use water.
- Avoid bumps or large shocks to the battery.
- Do not Use unsupported chargers or high current "fast" chargers not authorized by JKING.
What is the recommended age?
We recommend that users be 14 years of age and older. children under the age of 14 need to be supervised by an adult. Make sure you always wear a helmet and personal protective equipment just in case. Do not ride the board outside of your skill set and always be mindful of your surroundings.

Replace the affected product with a new or functionally equivalent product made from new and/or previously used parts that are equivalent in performance and reliability to the new part.
This warranty does not cover normal wear and tear of consumables (tapes, wheels, and bearings) unless the damage is due to defects in material or workmanship, and unless the damage is due to abuse, accident, modification, unauthorized repair, neglect, abuse, water damage, or other causes that are not defects in material and workmanship.
WARNING: If there is a potential risk of water ingress into the battery before, disconnect the battery from the board immediately and stop charging or using it! Store the battery in a dry, fireproof place to avoid the potential risk of fire. Lithium-ion batteries store and release electrical energy through electrochemical reactions. As electrical energy is drawn/discharged from the battery, lithium ions move from one electrode to the other. The electrodes are submerged in a liquid called an electrolyte, which allows the ions to move, and consists of lithium salts and organic solvents. It is these organic solvents that are the main fire hazard in lithium-ion batteries. In addition, the positively charged electrode (cathode) in the battery contains oxygen if the battery is subjected to specific stresses (e.g., internal short circuit, overheating, etc.). This means that lithium-ion batteries have all the elements needed to self-sustain a fire.
The manufacturer's warranty applies only to new complete skateboards purchased from the JKING website. Skateboards purchased elsewhere (from unauthorized resellers), in used condition, or used are not covered by our standard warranty. We do not offer a warranty on spare parts unless they arrive damaged. jking reserves the right of final interpretation of the above policy details.
