Inspection:
Charge the electric skateboard full. And then put it on the test shelves for discharge test. Turn on the skateboard and let it rotate without load at the highest speed until the battery is totally empty. 

Then charge the battery full, discharge it to 60-70% capacity. then test it by rider and inspect the acceleration, deceleration and braking. 

After all, clean the skateboard. Done!
