Hello there,

Before anything, let me tell you a little story about the Go Motorboard. It all started about 5 years ago with the introduction of the 1500X model. This was a real work of art, no doubt about it. It had lots of features and everything about it was so cool and inovative exept for one thing: it had no front suspension.That was the great flaw of the 1500x model. Years passed by and finaly in 2006 they came out with the long awaited 1600X model which transformed overnight into the 2000X model. I was trully impressed by the look of the new design and I bought one after not even a week since they came out. My excitement was soon to be killed by the extra changes made inside the scooter. They have replaced a relatively good lead acid 16volts and 8 AH with a sluggish 14.4volts and 7AH NiMH which not only that is 30% less powerful than the one used on the previous model, but it also lost the regenerative braking charge which was present on the 1500X. I was completly shocked by the move of the company. The 2000X also lost its engine brake which was a great feature on the 1500X because it prolonged the life of the rear tire. However, the real shock came with release of the new 2000XR. Not only that the model is 3 times the price of the first model, but the baterry lasts 3 times less than the 1500X and 2 times less than the battery on the 2000X. I really think that this Company has no sense of reality. Anyway, enough about the negatives! Here is the good news. I did some research and I decided to create a super powerful battery for the 2000X model. I own an electronics store and I also have a Master's Degree in Electronics and Physics. I will make two or three models for this motorboard and you can customize it the way you want it. I only use the best 10000mAH and 12000mAH NiMH available on the market and the new board will be faster and will last at least twice as long. I will also offer a 10 days money back guarantee so if for any reason you think that my battery doesn't do what I promissed you can return it and I will also pay the return shipping for you. I am so confident that you will enjoy the new super power of your sluggish motorboard not because I really want to sell you a product, but because I know the enjoyment and pleasure that a fast and long lasting ride will give you. I haven't decided on a price yet so if you can come up with some suggestions that will be great. I can tell you that I pay about $170 for the parts. Please tell me a fair price that you'll be willing to pay for it. I'm still at a point of market research. I will let you know more about the developments of my idea in about 10 days. Suggestions are welcome. Hope that my new batteries will change the way you look at your Motorboard. Thank you for reading this long message and please contact me with ideas about the price.

Re: A More Powerful Battery For Go Motorboard

Hi,

Your battery sounds great. Can you make one for my 2000X? Is the charger the same as the one supplied with 2000X?
Price of battery in France is 189.00 EURO, about $258.00.
What would be your price? I am in France and it will be possible to ship in France through my UPS account.
What method of payment do you prefer?

Best regards
