    Guess Lithium-Ion batteries are sealed with oil coolant?

    Re: Electric standup coming to market?

    agreed , some more info would be helpful, but i would guess there would be some secret development R&D stuff involved so they are probably keeping their formula to themselves, i would guess induction type motor and LIFE battery , possibly oil/liquid cooled battery pack looking at the discharge rate ,maybe even using the motor cooling water to serve battery and motor to save on weight ??? so many un answered questions to speculate on

    I am wondering about this too, especially for the electric surfboards that are already on the market. In saltwater it is not a big issue as the salt water conducts electricity much better than the human body does. You would have to complete the circuit from the hot lead to the grounded body of water you are in. In freshwater that is not the case. It takes a surprisingly small amount of current to kill a person as the current prefers to travel through the human body in freshwater. Just being near a minor leak can kill.

    Re: Electric standup coming to market?

    Free Form Factory has changed the specs on it to show:

    65 minutes max running time
    72 minutes fastest charging time
    380 pounds
    45 MPH top speed
    75 peak HP
    106 ft-lbs peak torque
    $17900

    That power rating is much better than the original 46 horsepower. And since it's an electric motor it should have a very flat powerband.

    Saltwater intrusion WILL kill it, I don't know what y'all think they are making this stuff out of but half a gallon of sea water and put it up for the nih is all it would take I think
