We show that the general framework proposed by Kleihaus et al.
(2015) for the study of asymptotically flat vacuum black objects with
equal magnitude angular momenta in
spacetime dimensions (with
) can be extended to the case of Einstein–Maxwell-dilaton (EMd) theory. This framework can describe black holes with spherical horizon topology, the simplest solutions corresponding to a class of electrically charged (dilatonic) Myers–Perry black holes. Balanced charged black objects with
horizon topology can also be studied (with
). Black rings correspond to the case
, while the solutions with
are black ringoids
. The basic properties of EMd solutions are discussed for the special case of a Kaluza–Klein value of the dilaton coupling constant. We argue that all features of these solutions can be derived from those of the vacuum seed configurations.
