Onewheel Pint vs Onewheel Pint X

Onewheel Pint has gotten a real upgrade with the release of the Onewheel Pint X. The new board tackles one of the biggest complaints about the Pint, the lack of range. In short, the Onehweel Pint X is an Onwheel Pint with an upgraded battery allowing for double the range and a slight increase in speed.

Both boards are sold for people looking for a great commuter, rocking pavement, or exploring the street. The Onewheel Pint X takes the possibilities for more adventures, and longer rides, and commutes from work without the need to charge.

More range new battery

The Onewheel Pint X has an upgraded battery pack installed much like the offerings from JW Batteries and ChiBatterySystems. Both companies made the upgrade to be a drop into the stock Onwheel Pint by changing the battery cells from standard 18650 to better cells. The cells are not confirmed, a candidate is high mAh 22650 or the 21700 used in the Onewheel GT. The cost is a more expensive cell, with a slightly larger form factor, and weight.

JW Batteries Pint upgrade

  • The JW batteries upgrade is just about double the stock Pint range to 12-15 miles range
  • 4.2 Amp Hours 228 Watt Hours battery.


  • 12-15+ mile range based on 200 lb rider in ideal conditions 
  • Mod-free design
  • Cell-level fusing
  • Increased cycle life and ability to fast charge

Onewheel Pint X

The Onehweel Pint X did go another way. The larger battery compartment is to enable the 15S-2P battery pack inside the board to double the range. The same pack as the Onewheel XR with 324 Wh inside.

The good thing is that this makes it possible to change the cells of an even better pack. The big question will be if a 15S-2P high-capacity pack will fit inside the already packed battery compartment.

More range is good and something I miss on my Onewheel Pint, thats why it is currently modded with an external battery back from GTMod.

The Pint and Pint X share the same controller. There is a big upgrade inside the box, Future Motion has replaced the metal nut with a plastic holding the power button so no more rattle inside the control box. Some users have reported this on the newer original Pint versions as well.

If you have a Pint you should check this out as it can brick your board. See my post on the metal nut in the control box being loose and how to fix it.


The weight of the Onewheel Pint X is increased when compared to the old board with 4lbs to a total weight of 27lbs. This comes from the upgrade to a better battery. The Onewheel Pint X now weighs the same as the bigger brother Onehweel XR.


The battery upgrades come at a cost, the Onewheel Pint X starts at $1,500, which is $450 more than the normal Onewheel Pint. If you buy a Pint and invest in a better upgrade the total price will be the same with the addition that you have voided your warranty with the upgrade. The Onewheel Pint X is a well-priced product when compared to the aftermarket offerings. Still, Future Motion Inc. is taking a premium and the price should be able to be lower than a Pint with a battery extension as you don’t pay for the stock 18650 cells.


In the Onewheel Pint vs Onewheel Pint X comparison, the Pint X emerges as a significant upgrade, addressing the key concern of limited range in the original Pint. With a doubled range and a slight speed boost, the Pint X offers enhanced possibilities for extended adventures and daily commutes without frequent charging.

The upgraded battery pack in the Pint X, akin to solutions from JW Batteries and ChiBatterySystems, propels its range to 12-18 miles. Future Motion’s modification to the controller eliminates reported issues, contributing to a smoother riding experience. However, this improvement comes at a price, with the Onewheel Pint X starting at $1,400, $350 more than the standard Pint.

While the weight increases to 27lbs due to the upgraded battery, the Pint X positions itself as a compelling option for riders seeking extended range without sacrificing performance. Despite the higher cost, the Pint X offers a comprehensive solution compared to aftermarket upgrades, although users should consider the impact on warranty coverage.

For those exploring top-tier options, it’s worthwhile to also consider the Onewheel GT and its advancements in comparison to the flagship Onewheel XR. Elevate your riding experience with the enhanced capabilities of the Onewheel Pint X, striking a balance between performance and affordability in the electric board market.
