What Online Reviewers Say
The first one (yellow) was so popular, we bought an extra battery… A few weeks later we had to buy a second one (blue). The grandkids LOVE these things! Excellent build quality and very easy to use. Our three year old grandson can easily control the swim board. The kids can tow grownups in their floaties. It was the hit of the summer! It would be great if a storage bag/case were available…
I have a disability ergo limited energy. I plan to take this electric kickboard with the next time we go to Castaway Cay. I can finally go on that snorkeling trail without fear that I'll run out of energy partway through! I am looking forward to it.
Everything looks good and works well. Brilliant device.
While the manufacturer says for 12 years or older, the size weight and power output make it very suitable for kids younger that 12, provided they wear a PFD and are adult supervised. Also, we added a paddleboard style leash. The battery lasts about thirty minutes which is ok because is forces the boys to take breaks while recharging, and sets defined intervals for them to take turns.
My 5 year old can't swim on his own yet, so we've been using the kid's pool floaties that are a vest with inflated arm floats. Unfortunately, when we want to play with other toys that move like a water scooter we have, someone has to remain stationary with him. What is great about this kickboard is that it lets him hang on and scoot around on his own. Grabbing onto the sides and using the controls is super simple and he had no problem immediately picking it up. Another nice thing for a younger one is that it isn't super fast, so he doesn't have any fear about using it like he does with some other motorized toys we've gotten him in the past. It seems to float well, and is perfect for use in a pool, though we've yet to try it on a lake I think it would be fine there in the kind of water you'd allow your child into.
My only wish is that this had the same battery pack as our larger water scooter from the same manufacturer, and while it isn't a big deal, which would have been a really nice bonus. Otherwise, it has plenty of power for what it is, and when the battery dies, it is still a perfectly functional kickboard.
I’m a regular lap swimmer and sometimes use a foam kickboard, but I ordered this electric kickboard by Asiwo to use at the lake for fun.
This came partially charged and I charged it up, which took a couple hours or so. The charger uses a proprietary plug and a transformer block. The LED light changes from red to green indicating charged. The battery fits inside a sealed housing.
Control is simple and easy. Right hand inputs increase the prop speed and left hand inputs decrease the speed. If you release one side, the power to the motor stops. This is designed for ages 12+.
Weight capacity is 265lbs. Battery life depends on speed and weight. Lighter weight + lower speed = longer performance.
I’ll be using this at the pool I swim at to see how well it can pull me. I’m a big guy, so I don’t think it will be very fast.
This is something that’d be nice for kids in a pool party, may have some application as a kick board, with and without power and might be useful for snorkeling, although I’ve not used it for that.
The device seems well made and durable. The owners manual instructs that you should charge the battery monthly!? Also, don’t leave the battery in the kickboard.
I will report back if there are any issues with this, but so far I like it and it works pretty well.
