The Skate Scooter that does not use battery to power (video)

Move away, electric skate scooter, there is a new kid in town. Although it may not be the sleekest around, it has a single advantage. You can recharge it with a single cartridge.


In fact I think you can say reload instead of recharge since it has nothing to charge. There is no battery. Only a propane driven engine. By using a 16.4 oz propane canister, you can easily replace it when it is empty. Here is the video.

The project is currently on Kickstarter. I believe it is ready for International supporters. I don’t think the propane canister is popular in Singapore. I don’t remember I have seen it before. If you know, do let me know.

But before you jump into this, you have to know that it is a 25cc 4 stroke engine and it might cause some noise. And also, you will need to pull to start the engine. Not very impressive in my opinion. I wonder what maintenance is needed on the engine.
