Removing & Replacing the Battery Pack

 

The 2nd generation Boosted board comes with either a standard or extended range battery that is user-replaceable. 1st generation battery packs are not user-replaceable.

Tools Required 
4mm hex key 
Set of Boosted connector tools 

Video instructions here.

1. Remove the battery pack from your board. Using a 4mm hex tool, remove the 6 battery pack screws and wing plates holding the battery pack to the deck. Place them aside.

2. Lift the battery pack off the board. If present, unclip the the battery pack connector from around the metal wire connectors. Let it hang to the side.

3. Place the two plastic connector tools on either side of the metal connectors, making sure to fit the metal connector snugly into the curve of the tools. The ridge on the inside of the tools should sit along the outside of the metal rings, and the flat sides of the tools with the Boosted logos should be facing each other. WARNING: Do not use pliers to tighten or loosen the connectors as they will easily damage the threaded metal rings.

4. Now, squeeze the handles together and rotate the tools in opposite directions, until the metal wire connector comes loose. Remove the tools and then using your fingers undo to metal connectors until separated.

5. Under good lighting, check both sides of the battery connectors to make sure that there is no dust, debris, discoloration, wear, abrasion, or damage. If there is evidence of damage or deterioration, please call or contact us.

8. Place the two plastic connector tools on either side of the metal connectors, making sure to fit the metal connector snugly into the curve of the tools. The ridge on the inside of the tools should sit along the outside of the metal rings, and the flat sides of the tools with the Boosted logos should be facing each other. Now, squeeze the handles together and rotate the tools in opposite directions tightening until the connector is very snug. This could take a few rotations.

9. If present, you may remove the battery connector clip by snipping the zip tie that holds it to the wire.

10. Place the battery pack back onto the board.

11. Using the 6 bolts and wing plates from before, reattach the battery, making sure you’re not pinching anything. Make sure the battery sits flat against the deck before tightening all the screws. When you reattach, start with the middle bolt on both sides, in order to keep the battery from tilting to one side.

12. Power the board and remote back on. If you see a yellow light, that indicates the battery is not properly connected.

Boosted Plus and Boosted Stealth both ship with extended range batteries that are user-replaceable. Boosted Mini S is only compatible with the standard range battery pack. Boosted Mini X is only compatible with the extended range battery pack.
