The Rocketskates are electronic powered skates which clip over your shoes, with pressure switches in the heel for speed control and braking. Super agile and great fun they’ll propel you along at up to 10mph. The skates look identical but are split into a lead skate and a follower skate, the strap buckles indicate which is which, the lead skate is marked with a red buckle. The lead skate will set and control the speed, while the follower does just that and matches the speed of the lead skate. We suggest you practice indoors to get the hang of the skates before going outside.How easy are the Rocketskates to charge?
With their in-built lithium ion battery the Rocketskates are easy to charge from mains and can travel up to eight miles on a full charge. Just plug into the mains with the supplied chargers and with just two hours of charging the internal rechargeable batteries will be ready to go again. Download the app on your iOS or Android device to track battery level, distance travelled, set your speed and remote control them through the Bluetooth connection. When you power up your skates with the buttons on the back of the lead skate a blue LED will flash, this means your Bluetooth is active.BATTERY OPERATED RIDE-ON SAFETY ADVICE
