So you’ve got the latest Segway as the hottest Christmas present this year? You’re super-excited to ride it, except that you are unsure if you’ll be able to stop without landing straight on your face. After all, besides the astounding hoverboard tricks that you have been watching on Youtube, there are also many videos for epic hoverboard fails! You wouldn’t want to make yourself a part of one of those, right? Don’t worry, you won’t. As long as you know some basics and pay attention during the initial practices, you are good to go. Read the entire article to understand how to master your hoverboard and not just ride it safely but also to stop and dismount safely.

Before You Start

We understand that you are excited and are really in the mood to start riding right away but you need to slow down. There are some basic steps that you will need to follow before you even set foot on the hoverboard. They will ensure a safe and smooth ride so make sure you follow each one before getting onto your hoverboard:

How to Stop on a Hoverboard


* Make sure that your hoverboard is fully charged before you start. If you haven’t charged it, connect it to the charger and leave it for 2 to 3 hours to let it charge completely.* The area where you choose to ride should be a clear, open and smooth one where it won’t hurt too much in case you do fall.* Wear your safety gear including a helmet, elbow pads and knee pads.* Stand next to a wall so that you have something to hold on to for support.* If your hoverboard supports a beginner mode, switch it on so that it’s safer to ride.

Stepping onto the Hoverboard

So you’re all set and ready to start riding. The key to a safe and confident ride on your hoverboard is the correct first step. Once you have mounted correctly, you will establish a good balance and control over the hoverboard to ride it smoothly. Here is how you go about it:

Stepping onto the Hoverboards

* Station the dominant foot of yours on the foot pad of your hoverboard first.* Now station the other foot in the same way on the foot pad without bending your knees and stand straight on the hoverboard. Avoid applying too much pressure on the hoverboard with either of the feet otherwise you are going to lose balance.* Lean slightly forward to start moving in the forward direction. Do so very slowly so that you don’t lose control of your hoverboard.

Turning on your Hoverboard

Once you have stepped onto the hoverboard and can move smoothly in a straight line, turning isn’t hard either.

* To turn right, press on the hoverboard with your left toes.* To turn left, press on the hoverboard using your right toes.

Turning on your Hoverboard

If you press only lightly, the turn is going to have a larger radius. If you press harder using your toes, you will take a sharp turn. If you want an even sharper turn, you may want to press down with the toes of one foot and heels of the other foot. Holding on to this exact position, pressing down with the toes of one foot and pressing down with the heels of the other, you will start to spin. Spinning is a trick every rider wishes to master and loves to show off.

Stopping a Hoverboard

Now it’s time for the most important thing that you need to perfect: stopping and dismounting from your hoverboard. It’s not hard, just like the rest of the steps involved in riding a hoverboard and you’ll be able to perfect it soon, with a little practice.

* Lean back slowly and carefully and your self-balancing electric scooter will start to slow down.* Don’t lean too much or you’ll start moving in the backward direction and may even fall off the hoverboard.* Once your hoverboard comes to a stop, you can step off it.* Step off from the back, by first placing your nondominant foot on the floor and then the dominant foot.

Stopping a Hoverboard

Note: Dismounting on the front side of your hoverboard is the biggest mistake that most amateur riders make. You may accidentally lean forward and may cause the hoverboard to move and lose balance. This may result in a fall.

Practice is all it takes to perfect your skills. First, remember to pay attention to the basics and learn how to ride in a straight line and take turns. Once you are good at those, you can start learning new tricks. You may fall a few times, but that’s entirely normal. Everybody falls at least once while learning how to ride it but that shouldn’t hold you back from using your hoverboard. In no time, you will be a pro at it and will be helping your friends who have just started out.


Learn How To Ride a Hoverboard

If you find cycling or motorbiking old school and are in for some new kind of adventure, you should consider trying out a hoverboard. Not only is it the new, trendy two-wheeled vehicle in town, but it also forms a cheap and eco-friendly means of commuting from one place to another.

Do you know how to ride a hoverboard? Even if you are new with hoverboards, you should know that perfecting this skill isn’t that big of a deal, mostly because the advanced technologies incorporated into the device keeps it balanced on its own. 

So it’s pretty straightforward to get the hang of it but you will need a little bit of guidance and some practice to get started on your own. Keep reading and you’ll learn how to ride a hoverboard in almost no time.

Hoverboard Safety

Hoverboard Safety While RidingLike they say, safety first! Just like any other vehicle, there are certain safety considerations that you need to be careful about if you wish to have an enjoyable ride and return home safely along with your investment.

* Many hoverboard models will not include an instruction manual, especially the inexpensive ones. However, in case you are lucky enough to receive one with the purchase of your cheap hoverboard, make sure you read it before stepping onto your hoverboard.

* You must be equipped with all the essential safety gear before you start riding your hoverboard. This is especially important if you are a beginner and not too confident with the vehicle. These essential items which include a helmet, elbow pads, knee pads, and wrist-guards will protect the rider against injuries even if they do experience a fall.

Steps for Riding a Hoverboard

Once you are certain about your safety during the ride, let’s head on to the more interesting bit or the action. Now that you have your safety gear on, you are ready to step onto the hoverboard.

Preliminary Steps

* Before stepping foot onto the hoverboard, you need to make sure that it is fully charged and ready for action. This step will normally take about 2 hours, so be patient.

* Turn on the hoverboard by flipping on the power switch which is usually at the back side of the hoverboard.

* Many hoverboards offer different riding modes for their operation. If your hoverboard also comes with a mode selection option, choose the beginner mode for yourself before stepping on it.

Stepping onto the Hoverboard

* Once your hoverboard is turned on and you have selected the right mode for riding, you need to place the hoverboard in front of you, on a level surface. Placing it next to a wall will help since you will be able to grab it in case you need some help with balancing.* Now place one foot onto the hoverboard and balance yourself in the position. Try to place your foot as close to the wheels as possible as doing so will make it easier to balance the board during the entire ride.* Now place your second foot onto the hoverboard, close to the other wheel. Many hoverboards will include an indication next to the battery gauge which will notify you of the right time to place the second foot onto the hoverboard. When the light next to the battery gauge turns green, you may place the second foot onto the hoverboard.

Maneuvering the Hoverboard

* Maneuvering the HoverboardSo once you are standing upright onto the hoverboard and have balanced yourself, it’s time to start moving. To move forward, simply lean forward and apply pressure on the board using your toes. To move backward, you will only need to lean backward.* Now you need to practice your turns. If you wish to make a left turn, you need to apply pressure on the board using only your right toes. Similarly, for taking a right turn, you just need to apply pressure using your left toes.

Stepping off the Hoverboard

There are certain tricks that you may follow to prevent yourself from falling while stepping off the hoverboard.

* Try to shift your entire weight onto your dominant foot so that you can first take off the foot that is less dominant.* Step off the device from the back side rather than the front. Stepping off from the front end may cause you to accidentally apply pressure using your toes which may create movement in the hoverboard and result in you falling off it. Stepping off the back will prevent such a thing from happening.

Congratulations! That’s all you need to know to get started with your self-balancing scooter. Of course, there is a lot more that you will learn through practice and time. Spinning is a popular hoverboard trick but you’ll need at least a few days of practice before you can try it out. First, make sure you have gained confidence in straight line riding and turns. Once you have perfected these basic skills, you can go ahead and try out cool, new hoverboard tricks to impress your friends. 


How to Make a Hoverboard at Home

Are you a hoverboard lover or just an inquisitive engineer who is looking for new ways to test your skills? No matter what the answer is, you have been thinking about building yourself a customized hoverboard, haven’t you? Isn’t this exactly the reason why you have landed on this very page. Well, we are here to tell you that you can bring your dream to reality. We will offer you with a complete guide on how to build yourself a hoverboard that will make you look at least just as cool as those who are riding a store-bought one. So are you ready to get your hands dirty? Let’s dive in.

What will you need?

Of course, there are a couple of inexpensive essentials that you will need to gather if you want to make a hoverboard. Once you get a hold of all these things, the rest of the work is quite simple. You will just need to put everything together to turn it into an authentic hoverboard. Just make sure that you find the right products and put them in place correctly and you will make yourself a gadget that provides almost the same functionality as the hoverboard you will get from the market in hundreds of dollars. So here is what you will need:

* One 0.25-inch sheet of plywood* One 0.5-inch sheet of plywood* One battery of 12 volts and 12 amps* Glue for wood* Two scooter motors, 24 volts each* A block of wood, 2” by 2”* Screws* Rubber wheels with a diameter of 1 inch* Two 12 inch wheels* Epoxy

Steps to build your own hoverboard at home

So now you have all the components with you. It’s about time you put them all together. Your job is simple. You just need to follow a few basic steps and you will have before you a brand new hoverboard to go cruising on.

Step 1:

Draw the frame of the hoverboard on the 0.25-inch sheet of plywood and cut it out. Now use this frame to trace out an identical shape on the same 0.25-inch sheet of plywood so that you have two identical pieces of plywood. Also, trace the same shape on the thicker sheet of plywood (0.5-inch sheet) to get another piece, thicker than the ones before. Now you should have three identical pieces of plywood for the frame. 

Step 2:

Now place the battery on top of one of the thinner pieces of plywood and trace out the boundaries. Remove the battery and cut out along the traced lines to include a slot on your hoverboard where the battery will be fitted. 

Step 3:

Now take the 2” by 2” piece of wood and cut out the length that is exactly the same measurement as the width of the plywood pieces. Now use a drill to make holes in the center of each of the ends of the wooden piece. These holes should be just big enough to hold the axle of the 12-inch wheels that you have with you.

Step 4:

To the same holes that you have drilled in the wood in step 3, add epoxy and mix it for at least a minute. Now insert the axle of the 12-inch wheels that you are using and screw them on tightly. Now let this structure rest for a day so that the epoxy stabilizes and the structure is hardened in its place.

Step 5:

After a day of rest, take the attached wood and axle and mount it onto the piece of plywood that has space for battery cut out on it. Use glue for putting these two structures together. You will also need to cut out two additional pieces of 2” by 2” wood and attach them onto the same piece of plywood, perpendicular to the direction of the first 2” by 2” piece.

Step 6:

Now using suitable lengths of 2” by 2” pieces of wood, make a compartment for the battery onto one of the other two pieces of cut out plywood. Now place this structure on the ground with the battery on top. Glue this onto the previously build structure.

Step 7:

Now you have to attach another piece of 2” by 2” wood such that it extends out the back side of the frame. Using the same procedure that you followed in step 3, attach the small 1” wheel such that it touches the ground. This serves as the balancing wheel on your hoverboard.

Step 8:

Now you need to attach something to the axle of both motors so that it produces friction against the motion of the wheels. You can use small rubber wheels or tape to achieve this purpose. Also, build mounting brackets for the motor which offers enough space to hold the axles. These mounting brackets will be attached to the perpendicular pieces of wood that are already a part of the structure. Attach the motor onto the mounting bracket with tape. Finally, connect the motors with the battery in parallel and include separate switches in both the circuits for separate control of the motors.

Step 9:

Now attach the thicker piece of the cutout plywood on top to cover your hoverboard and use screws to secure it. To give the structure a little more stability, connect the motor bracket with the axle of the wheels using a few elastic bands.


So you see how simple it is to enjoy a self-created self balancing scooter? It barely takes two days and that too because you have to wait for the epoxy to harden overnight. Once you have built and enjoyed your own hoverboard, you may even wish to upgrade to a more advanced model. You can find some excellent hoverboards from reputable brands at affordable prices. You may want to try these out for a change and find out what a thrilling experience it will be to ride one.


How to Charge a Hoverboard

So have you recently purchased a new hoverboard? Do you have a bunch of questions on how to charge a hoverboard? A hoverboard is an exciting, new way to get to places; no doubt about that. Equally true is the fact that it needs to be taken care of to ensure safe and efficient performance as well as a long life. An important part of its care and maintenance is proper charging of the device. Read the entire post and you will learn all about charging this new device.

Instructions on How to Charge a Hoverboard

Charging your hoverboard is simple once you understand the color coding of the battery light. Follow these steps and you will make sure that the device is correctly charged each time the batteries are out.

* What’s most important when preparing to charge your hoverboard is that you should be using a suitable charger with it. The best selection is the original hoverboard charger that comes with your hoverboard but if you are using a different charger, do make sure that it matches with the voltage requirements of your hoverboard.* Make sure that the hoverboard is powered off before you begin charging it. If it is not off, press the power button to turn it off.* Now align the charging port with the pin of the charging cable and insert it carefully into the port. Make sure that they are properly aligned otherwise the hoverboard will not charge.* In most cases, the charging adapter will include a charging light. This light should turn solid red when you plug in the charger and turn it on.* Now simply let the device charge for as long as it takes. Be patient since this is going to take a long time. It will normally take about two hours to charge the hoverboard completely but the exact charging time will depend on the exact model of your hoverboard.* The charging light will turn solid green when the hoverboard charging is complete. This green light is an indication that your hoverboard is now fully charged and you may unplug it from the wall socket.* Once you spot a green light on the charger, simply turn off the plug and remove the charger from the wall socket. Also remove the charging plug from the charging port of the hoverboard. It is not at all recommended that you leave the hoverboard charging for longer than the required amount since many hoverboards aren’t designed to sustain overcharging.* So that’s all! Your hoverboard is now fully charged and ready for many hours of fun. All you have to do now is to store the charger somewhere safe and take the hoverboard out for a spin.

The above, however, are only general instructions for charging a hoverboard which will hold true for most models. If your hoverboard comes with an instruction manual, it is best that you read it carefully and entirely before using and charging the hoverboard.

How Long does it Take to Charge a Hoverboard?

The best hoverboard brands are the ones that can offer a smaller charging time. However, even for these top quality models of hoverboards, it is hard to find one with a charging time lower than 2 hours. The usual charging time that you will find for most good quality hoverboards is around 2 to 3 hours. A hoverboard that is bigger in size will naturally take longer to charge as compared to the smaller hoverboards.

Check the user manual or the specifications to learn the exact charging time and then remember to check the charging status at the end of this specified charging duration. If you find a green light to indicate that the hoverboard has charged completely, no need to keep it charging for any longer than that. Unplug the hoverboard instantly to prevent overcharging. As is the case with most Smartphones, overcharging the hoverboard can reduce the hoverboard battery life.

How Long can you Use a Hoverboard after a Full Charge?

This is another important question that will pop up in your mind when using a hoverboard. You should at least have a rough idea as to how long will your hoverboard work after a full charge so that you may return home or to a power outlet in time for a recharge. However, the answer to this question varies according to the brand of the hoverboard that you are using. Of course, high end hoverboards will offer a much longer battery time as compared to inferior quality hoverboards. The inferior quality hoverboards may only function for about 2 hours after a full charge while the superior quality ones will offer battery times as high as 6 hours. Most of the hoverboards will come with a battery light which will start to flash as an indication that the batteries are about to die and you will need to recharge the device soon.

So now you know exactly how to charge your hoverboard and have also found answers to all other related queries. Hopefully, after all the useful information you have gathered here, you will have no trouble keeping your hoverboard charged and in good shape for a long long time.

How Fast does a Hoverboard go?

The hoverboard trend started out quite recently, first among teanagers and then quickly gained popularity among all age groups. If you are a strong hoverboard lover, you would understand the need for speed when you are on the road. It is for this reason that the question ‘How fast does a hoverboard go?’ is so very important for most of us.

A speedy hoverboard also makes a faster commute to work which is just what you need on days that you’re late. Different models of hoverboards will feature different top speeds depending upon many different factors. Here, you will find out everything there is to know about top speeds of different hoverboard models and the factors that will affect it.

Factors that Affect the Speed of a Hoverboard

The top speed of the hoverboard is a major consideration when selecting any particular model. However the speed at which your hoverboard will go will not only depend on the construction and quality of your hoverboard but will also depend on a number of external factors. Below is a list of all those factors that can affect the top speed of your hoverboard either directly or indirectly.


Brand of the hoverboard that you have selected is the first and foremost factor that will determine the top speed that it offers. In general, the high end hoverboard brands offer a much higher top speed as compared to the lower end brands. This is because they will include better quality parts, stronger motor and good batteries. Even if these good quality hoverboards are designed for use by beginners as well, they will limit the top speed in the beginner mode so that the beginner users may learn to ride it safely.

Wheel Size

hoverboard Wheel SizeJust like all the other features, wheel size is also an important factor that affects the speed of a hoverboard. The reason is that the wheel size determines the kind of ride that a hoverboard offers and the manufacturers will set the top speed accordingly. Most of the mid ranged hoverboards are designed with 6.5 inch wheels which usually offer a top speed of around 6 to 8 mph. Such a top speed is although sufficient for beginners and kids, it may not suit the advanced riders.

On the other hand, if you are purchasing hoverboard for kids under the age of 10, you may want to consider one with 4.5 inch wheels as it will be simpler to ride and will limit the top speed to under 6 mph so that its safer for the kids. The more advanced models such as those with 8 inch or 10 inch wheels will generally offer a more generous top speed, well beyond 10 mph. You may even find some high end models with 13 to 14 mph top speed.

Power of the Electric Motor

An electric motor is attached to each of the wheels of the hoverboard. The power to rotate the wheels come from these motors. Naturally, the stronger the motors, the faster will they be able to rotate the wheels. If you wish for a speedy ride, make sure to select a hoverboard with stronger motors so that the device is capable of attaining a higher top speed. 

Battery Life

Battery LifeAnother important factor that affects the hoverboard speed is, unfortunately, also the one that most customers will fail to take notice of. The battery life of your hoverboard will determine the length of time through which it can sustain this top speed. A hoverboard that will only give the stated top speed for half an hour and then start to slow down due to low charge is no good. You need a hoverboard which can retain the stated top speed for at least 2 to 3 hours before it starts to slow down.To ensure this you need a hoverboard that has a strong battery life.

Rider Weight

Naturally, a heavier rider will go slower on the same model of hoverboard that can take a lighter rider at a higher speed. You should also consider the weight limit that your hoverboard offers. If you are heavier than the stated weight limit, you should select a different model since this particular hoverboard will neither take you at the stated top speed nor be safe for you to ride on.


The surface on which you ride is, of course, another major factor which will affect your speed. A flat smooth surface will offer a much higher speed and with less effort than what you would expect on an inclined or rough terrain. Rough surfaces offer a greater degree of friction and reduce your speed while riding.

Which Brands Offer Higher Top Speeds?

The fastest hoverboards are the ones that come from the most reputable and high end brands. Swagtron is one of the most well known names that will appear when looking for hoverboards and is also known for producing some of the fastest hoverboards. Swagtron T6 and Swagtron T1 are some of the fastest hoverboards available in the market. Besides Swagtron, the pricier models of Gotrax and Genesis will also offer higher top speeds.


Although speed thrills, it must be handled with care if you want to ensure a safe experience. Investing in a good hoverboard today will not only offer a speedy journey but will also guarantee that you return home safely. The newer models will include different riding modes which will limit the top speed according to your skill level. Beginners will enjoy a safe and simpler riding experience with a lower top speed while the experienced riders can take pleasure in a trilling, speedy ride.


How does a Hoverboard or Self Balancing Scooter Work?

While cruising down the streets on your favorite hoverboard, have you ever stopped to think what makes it work? So how does a hoverboard or self balancing scooter work? This post will offer a simplified insight into its functionality and operation. After reading this piece, you will find out what is inside these magical devices that make them work and how it functions the way it does. Without further ado, let’s just head on to the technical stuff.

Components Inside a Hoverboard

What seems like a simple device on the outside is quite complex if you take a peek inside. The following are the components that you will find inside your hoverboard:

[responsive_video type=’youtube’ hide_related=’1′ hide_logo=’1′ hide_controls=’0′ hide_title=’1′ hide_fullscreen=’1′ autoplay=’0′][/responsive_video]


A steel frame with a pivot at the center*  Dual motors Logic board Two wheels Two gyroscopes Two IR sensors Two speed sensors Charging port Power switch Batteries Plastic shell LED lights Pressure pads

How does a Hoverboard detect Movement?

Now that you have the complete list of components that are inside the hoverboard, let’s also understand how they work together and produce movement according to your requirements. It is the movement of your body that will translate into the movement of the board. So what makes it all happen. It’s the pairs of gyroscopes and speed sensors that will work together to detect your movement and convert it into the movement of the hoverboard.How does a Hoverboard detect Movement

The pair of gyroscopes will read and understand the distribution of weight on the pressure pads and convey it to the logic board to convert it into the movement of the wheels. Together with the gyroscopes, the speed sensors will read the degree of tilt on the pressure pads that you produce using your toes or your heels and decide upon the speed at which the wheels will go.

How does a Hoverboard detect Movement 2

The pressure pads on the hoverboard are just as important as the sensors in detecting motion. Each of your feet will be placed on a pressure pad and each pressure pad will have two switches placed below it. When your body leans forward, the forward switch, under the pressure pad, is pushed down which triggers a forwards motion of the hoverboard. Similarly, when you lean backward, the backward switch is pushed down which will motion the hoverboard to move in the backward direction.

What makes a Hoverboard Move?

What makes a Hoverboard MoveThe logic board is the brain of your hoverboard. It’s where all the processing work takes place. It takes input from the gyroscope and speed sensors and decides upon the amount of acceleration, deceleration or turn that the hoverboard will take. The information that the logic board processes is then conveyed to the motors to make suitable adjustments and produce the requested movement. The logic board is also capable of limiting the speed of the hoverboard such as when you are riding in beginner mode. It can also lock the motors if you have selected the ‘locked’ mode.

These movements of the hoverboard will give you a balanced and customized ride depending on your skill level and other requirements. The power to run the motors comes from the preinstalled battery pack. You may also purchase it separately if the original batteries have worn out.

How do the Hoverboard Lights Work?

Your hoverboard will also include many lights. Not all of these lights are simply for aesthetics. Yes, some hoverboards have lights all around the wheels to make you look cool on the road but the ones on the front are headlights. These front lights are there to guide you in the dark. In addition to front lights, you will also find status lights which will tell you the status of the battery and whether the hoverboard is on or not.


So now you understand all the secrets behind these trendy gadgets. The next time you step onto the hoverboard you will know exactly what goes on inside the beautiful plastic body and the chain of actions that are triggered simply by a slight tilt of your body. Learning about the smart mechanism of these gadgets will undoubtedly develop complete confidence in the amazing technology of self-balancing. Since these hoverboards do much of the balancing work on their own, it shouldn’t be hard to master at all. In fact, most riders only take a few hours to learn the basics.

Hoverboard Carry Bag Buyer’s Guide

So you have seen how a hoverboard carry bag benefits you by protecting your investment and making transportation easier? Check out these buying tips before picking out the hoverboard carry bag to order online.


What good is a hoverboard carry bag that does not even fit your hoverboard inside it? Do check the dimensions of the hoverboard carry bag before you place your order. Make sure that it is large enough to fit your hoverboard inside it. It shouldn’t, however, be so big that it is unable to hold your hoverboard securely. The standard size available for a hoverboard carry bag is suitable for a hoverboard with 6.5” wheels. If you have a bigger hoverboard with 8” or 10” wheels, you will need a bigger carrying bag. Just make sure that you order the right size so you won’t have to return or exchange it later.

Carrying Straps:

Carrying StrapsSome people are more comfortable carrying a backpack while others are more comfortable while carrying shoulder bags. What suits you more? Since you will find both varieties when you look for a hoverboard carry bag, it’s worth considering which variety might suit you better. It is simply a matter of personal preference; some may find one type suitable over the other. To see what type of carry it offers, you will just need to take a look at the type of straps that are offered. Is there a long shoulder strap or two straps that will help you carry it like a backpack?

One more thing that you need to be careful about when considering the straps is the padding offered. Adequate padding of the shoulder straps or back straps will allow more comfort while carrying your hoverboard. Since a typical hoverboard can weigh over 30 lbs, you need to look for ways that may allow you to carry it more comfortably.


Popular materials used in the construction of hoverboard carry bags are Condura, Nylon and Polyester. Make sure that the material is tough and will not show wear and tear quite so easily. If the material is nylon, it will mostly likely be treated with PVC or silicone to strengthen it and give it additional capabilities of waterproofing. Besides being water resistant, a hoverboard carry bag must also be fire-resistant and shock proof. See the specifications of the hoverboard carry bag which you plan on purchasing to see if it offers all of these capabilities.

A fire proof material of your hoverboard carry bag is especially helpful to ensure the safety of the user and surroundings when the hoverboard is being charged. Although the hoverboards available these days are completely safe from any fire possibilities, it shouldn’t hurt to be extra careful since there have been fire incidents in the past linked to charging of the hoverboard. Simply keep your hoverboard inside the fireproof hoverboard carry bag all the while that it is being charged so that you know it’s safe.

Shock-proofing of the material is equally important in keeping your hoverboard safe from any damage in case you accidentally dropped the carrying bag with your hoverboard on a hard surface. If the hoverboard is inside a shockproof carrying bag when it experiences an accidental fall, it will not show any signs of cracks, scratches or electrical malfunctions.

Charger Pouch:

Although it is a seemingly insignificant detail, the charger pouch matters a lot when it comes to choosing your hoverboard carrying case. Avoid picking a hoverboard carry bag which offers an open pocket for storing the charger. By open pocket we mean that it will not have any Velcro strap or zipper to secure the contents. You may even lose the hoverboard charger if it falls out of the charger pouch. Make sure that the charger pouch of the hoverboard carry bag comes with some proper mechanism to secure the hoverboard charger in place and prevent it from being lost. Some models of carrying bags will offer an inside pocket for holding the charger. These varieties are even more secure as far as the chargers are concerned.


Always look for a dual zipper for the main pocket that will carry your hoverboard. A dual zipper will make it easier and quicker to access your hoverboard. Also see that the zipper moves smoothly over the slider without any obstructions and without requiring any effort from the user.

Style and Color:

Hoverboard carry bags are available in different styles and colors which do not have any impact on its quality or performance but will surely affect how cool you look while carrying the bag. You may select something that matches your taste so that you enjoy carrying it on your back and showing it off to friends. However, you may want to avoid picking light colors since they will need to be cleaned more often and begin showing signs of aging sooner than you think.


If you already have a best hoverboard, do not waste anymore time in ensuring your hoverboard’s security and bring home the hoverboard carry bag. Once you do, you will find it much simpler to carry your hoverboard around with you all day and store it when you want to give it a rest.

How to choose the right hoverboard charger?

When choosing a hoverboard charger, price is the last thing that you should consider. Buying a cheap, low quality hoverboard charger is going to cost you a lot more since it is going to die down pretty soon and you’ll be off shopping again. However, the most expensive of the hoverboard chargers in the market does not necessarily mean it’s the best one. There are certain other factors, besides the price, which you need to look out for when buying a hoverboard charger.


When you purchase a hoverboard charger, make sure you check the power ratings mentioned in the specifications as well as those for the voltage and current. These ratings will determine how much power and voltage that hoverboard charger is capable of delivering to the hoverboard that you are going to connect to it. The power rating of the hoverboard charger which you select for purchase should accurately match with the power rating on the batteries of your hoverboard. In case you purchase a hoverboard charger whose rating does not match with that of the hoverboard in question, the charging times for the hoverboard will suffer. You will need to wait a lot longer for your hoverboard to charge than you normally would.


It is best to buy a genuine hoverboard charger from a reputable manufacturer. Check if the hoverboard charger which you choose to purchase complies with all of the international standards. A hoverboard charger that is certified for all the required international standards will definitely function much better than other hoverboard chargers that are present in the market. Also since most of the hoverboard-related accidents in the past have been associated with the charging of its batteries, buying a certified hoverboard charger will ensure the safety of the hoverboard, the hoverboard charger and also the user. A slightly higher cost that you were reluctant to pay initially will soon pay off with your safety and that of your equipment.

Warranty and Support:

Of course, when you are paying good money to buy a quality hoverboard charger, you need to make sure that it comes with a reliable warranty and the company offers good customer support in case of a problem. You can read customer reviews for the hoverboard charger that you are planning to buy to see if the company responds well to the problems.

How to Charge your Hoverboard

Charging a hoverboard may seem like the simplest task to perform, however there might be minor details which you may not be paying attention to. This is exactly why we thought it best to include a couple of important tips which you may practice each time you plug in your hoverboard for charge. Here is what you do:

* The most important part when charging your hoverboard is to get the right hoverboard charger. Make sure that the hoverboard charger which you have with you features the exact voltage and power output which your hoverboard requires.Once you have made sure that you have the right hoverboard charger, you can plug it in a suitable power socket. You will find an indicator light on the hoverboard charger. This led should turn green when you connect it to the power socket and turn on the switch.Now you will need to connect the hoverboard charger to your hoverboard. Find the correct charger port on the body of your hoverboard. This is where you will plug in the hoverboard charger. Now the color of the led on the hoverboard charger should turn to red since the hoverboard that is connected to it is low on charge.Now leave it for a while until the hoverboard is fully charged. Once the hoverboard is completely charged, the led on the hoverboard charger will turn green which indicates a full charge. Now you should first turn the switch of the power socket off and remove the hoverboard charger from the socket. Now disconnect the hoverboard from the hoverboard charger.

That’s all that needs to be done as far as charging your hoverboard is concerned. Once it has been fully charged using your hoverboard charger, your ride is ready for some action!

How long does it take to Charge a hoverboard?

Hoverboard battery full chargeThat’s a big question especially if you have just bought a new hoverboard and cannot stand to leave it alone even for a little while. Well, the answer to the question varies with the size, quality, and model of the hoverboard which you pick out for yourself.

Normally, you will find the charging times mentioned with the specifications of the hoverboard. The Swegway, for example, takes around 3 hours to charge completely. You will need to leave this particular hoverboard plugged in to the hoverboard charger for at least 2 to 3 hours if you want it to charge completely. Most brands and models of hoverboards will take more or less the same time to charge completely.

Of course the change of color of the led that is present on the hoverboard charger will indicate when it is time to unplug your hoverboard. As already pointed out, the color of this led should change from red to green before you can unplug the hoverboard charger and start using your ride again.

Avoid Overcharging

avoid overchargingAs it is recommended for Smartphones and all other electronic devices that you use on a regular basis, you should not overcharge your hoverboard. Leaving it plugged in with the hoverboard charger overnight is a common mistake which most users make out of negligence. If you own a hoverboard and want it alive and well for a long time, be smart enough to avoid such a mistake. Leaving the hoverboard charger plugged in longer than it should be can seriously damage the battery life of the hoverboard. It can also affect the durability of the hoverboard charger and of course not in a positive way!Overcharging on a regular basis will weaken the batteries of the hoverboard and you will soon notice that the batteries will run for a smaller duration that they initially used to when you first bought the hoverboard. When this happens, your hoverboard will be spending more time being plugged in to be charged rather than being ridden like it was supposed to. Our motive isn’t to scare you; it is only to equip you with the knowledge that helps you enjoy your hoverboard to the fullest and keeps your hoverboard charger functioning to its utmost for a longer time.

How long does a full charge last?

Again, you need to take a look at the specifications of your self balance scooter to get the exact answer to how long you will be able to ride your hoverboard before you need to charge it again. However, for a good quality hoverboard with batteries which are still functioning at their very best, it should take at least around 6 hours before the batteries require a recharge. If however, you have a low quality hoverboard or the batteries have become weak for some reason such as frequent overcharging, they can even last around 2 hours before they require a recharge.

When do you need to plug in the hoverboard charger?

hoverboard battery dyingSo how can I tell if my hoverboard needs to be charged? After you have been riding your hoverboard for a while, the batteries will start to lose their charge and soon your hoverboard will come to a halt. So there must be an indication which tells you that your ride is about to come to a halt so that you know when to head back home and plug it in with the hoverboard charger.

Why do you need a hoverboard Skin and Case?

A hoverboard is a major investment. If you managed to purchase something expensive such as this, a hoverboard skin shouldn’t be hard to manage at all. Hoverboard skins are very cheap if you compare them to an actual hoverboard. Also, everyone would want some kind of protection for their valuable investments, isn’t that right?

Here is a list of all the important reasons why you would want to consider purchasing a hoverboard case for coating your precious two-wheeled ride:


First and foremost, or you can say the most important reason for purchasing a hoverboard skin is the protection of the hoverboard. Besides the dents and scratches that the body of your hoverboard can experience during the rides, it is also exposed to the dirt and dust of the environment. In case this dust reaches the inside of the hoverboard body, it may even damage the internal electronics. You wouldn’t want anything of the sort to happen to your hoverboard, would you?

A typical hoverboard is not cheap at all. You would want to protect your investment from any damage and take all the necessary measures which would increase its life. If you want your hoverboard to last long, a hoverboard skin is your best bet.

A hoverboard skin will protect your vehicle from any damage and will also act as a barrier against any dust or dirt that the hoverboard is exposed to. By doing so, a hoverboard case makes sure that the hoverboard lasts long and that too in full shape and utmost performance.


Not every hoverboard is waterproof. In case the model of hoverboard which you own is not waterproof, it could seriously damage the gadget in case of a sudden downpour or an accidental encounter with a puddle.

Although hoverboard skins aren’t completely waterproof, they will minimize the damage that may occur upon an unexpected encounter with water. For this reason, a hoverboard skin becomes an absolute necessity especially for a hoverboard model which is not made with waterproof material.


hoverboard Skin and Case stylesOf course, we cannot overlook the fact that a hoverboard skin gives your old hoverboard a stylish new makeover. Wouldn’t you want your hoverboard to make you stand out among your friends? If so, you will definitely love what a cool new hoverboard skin can do to the vehicle.

Although the hoverboard model itself which you choose for yourself might not be available in tons of varieties when it comes to the design and colors, there are hundreds of hoverboard skins to choose from for each model of hoverboard. Each one will be available in a unique style and color.

Whether you like dull colors and vintage designs or you’re up for some bright, catchy looks, you will easily find something you’ll love on your hoverboard. Out of the hundreds of designs, there is a perfect hoverboard skin for everyone based on their personality and preferences.

Hoverboard Case and Skin Buyer’s Guide

Before purchasing anything new, especially the ones you don’t know much about, it’s better to gather some insight into the product. You should know which features to consider while buying a hoverboard skin. Keeping in mind all of the most important features, you will be able to pick the best one out of the lot.


All self-balancing scooters are not built using the same design. They come in a variety of different shapes and sizes. It is important to check if the hoverboard skin which you are about to buy is compatible with the hoverboard model which you are using currently. In case the hoverboard skin is not compatible with your hoverboard, it will completely be a waste of your time and money since you won’t be able to use it on your hoverboard at all. For this reason, this is the very first and the most important feature you need to check before you even think about buying that particular hoverboard skin.

Simply read the specifications of the hoverboard skin which you plan on selecting and it will tell you which models of hoverboard it’s going to work with. In case the specifications aren’t available for the hoverboard case which you are going to buy or do not clearly specify the models, you can always ask the retailer if it’s suitable for the hoverboard model that you are purchasing it for. Once you have made absolutely certain that this hoverboard skin will fit your model of hoverboard, you can go ahead and start considering some more features.


One of the main reasons for covering your hoverboard with a hoverboard skin is to protect its body from any damage. For this reason, the material that the hoverboard case is made out of should be strong enough to endure any damage without relaying it to the hoverboard body. Any dents or scratches that you experience on your rides should be limited to the hoverboard skin. Your actual hoverboard should not show any signs of damage. After all, this is what you employed a hoverboard skin for in the first place.

So it’s very important that you purchase a hoverboard skin and case that is made of a strong material. Most of the hoverboard skins that you will find in the market are made of vinyl. Vinyl is a good choice for hoverboard skin material. However, you still need to pay a little attention and try to prevent any dents or scratches from occurring otherwise you will need to get a new hoverboard skin soon.

Wheel Cover:

Also make sure that the hoverboard skin that you purchase comes included with a matching cover for the wheel guards. Not only will it protect the wheels, it will also give a complete, fresh look to your hoverboard. Also, if you’re purchasing the hoverboard skin for your kid, he or she will love the fact that it comes with a matching covering for the wheel guards. Imagine how cool they would look riding a brand new hoverboard, because who would know it’s the same old one.

How to install a Hoverboard Skin?

Installing a hoverboard skin on your hoverboard is very simple. It requires no professional assistance and will only take you a few minutes. It will not even require any professional tools to get the job done. Simply follow the steps and your hoverboard will have a classy makeover in minutes:

Clean your Vehicle:

The first thing which needs to be done is for you to clean the hoverboard properly so that any dust or dirt does not get trapped beneath the hoverboard case. Simply wipe all the parts using a damp cloth paying special attention while cleaning the wheel guards since these are the places which gather the most dirt while the vehicle is out on the road. Dry the hoverboard completely before beginning to apply the hoverboard skin on it.

Identify Locations:

The hoverboard skin might exist in multiple pieces instead of a single unit that covers the entire body of the hoverboard. In case it exists in more than one piece, identify where every piece will go before you start applying it.

Apply it:

Now it’s time to start applying each piece on the correct location one by one. The largest piece will go on the top surface of your hoverboard. Carefully and slowly lay the vinyl skin over the top of the hoverboard starting from one end and moving all the way to the other. Once you are done, gently move your hand across the hoverboard skin and remove any wrinkles that may appear on it.You will also find matching skins for the sides of the hoverboard as well as the wheel guards. There may also be smaller pieces inside the hoverboard skin packing which will cover any smaller spaces of your hoverboard which are left exposed after coating it with the larger pieces. Don’t worry since the sizes and shapes of these smaller pieces of the skin will easily let you know where each one fits.

Remove Bubbles:

After you have applied all the pieces of the hoverboard skin at their correct locations, it is time to smooth them out. A special tool known as the vinyl applicator tool is available for this purpose but you may even use your credit card to do so. Smooth out the surface using the card and then wipe off the entire hoverboard using a dry cloth. You are done!

Why should you choose Hoverboard for Kids?

Let’s face it; kids of this generation would prefer spending hours with their Smartphone or laptop than to go outside for even a short while to breathe in some fresh air. At the same time, it’s also important to realize that some sort of outdoor activity on a regular basis is absolutely essential for your kid’s health. Solution: with an activity as engaging as riding one of the latest hoverboard for kids, you won’t be forcing your kid to ‘go out and play’. It will in fact be the other way round, but thankfully you’ll know that they’ll return home to recharge their hoverboards.

Hoverboard for kids are designed primarily for kids. All their design aspects will be such that it makes them easier and entertaining to ride for kids. How is that possible? Let’s take a look:

Firstly, they are small which makes them easier to maneuver and easier to carry if they are not riding it. What also makes them easier to ride unlike the professional hoverboards is the fact that they have a lower speed limit. Most of them will only support speeds under 10 mph which makes them incredibly safe for kids. Since hoverboard for kids are designed for first timers, they are generally much easier to learn how to ride than a hoverboard that’s designed for adults. Most of them will also feature a learning mode to help you learn the sport in merely minutes. What’s left after that is just perfecting it, learning new tricks and having fun!

Kids Hoverboard Reviews

#1. YHR Hoverboard

YHR HoverboardThis is not only among the cheapest hoverboards that you can purchase for yourself or for your kid but also one of the strongest. As compared to the usual 250 watts motors installed in the entry-level hoverboards, this one comes with a dual 300 watts motor. The higher the wattage of the motors translate into more riding power which implies that the hoverboard can climb inclined slopes with over 30 degrees of inclines, cover a maximum range of over 15 km and attain the highest speed of 9.3 mph. All of these specifications are considerably higher than what you get with a basic hoverboard model of comparable or higher price. Additionally, the hoverboard is absolutely safe to ride since it comes with UL2272 certification and meets the highest quality and safety standards.

The charger is included in the package using which you can charge the UL certified batteries of the hoverboard within 1 to 2 hours. Additionally, the hoverboard includes LED lights on the front, top and around the wheels of the vehicle to add more coolness to your ride and also to make it more functional for nighttime riding. There is also a battery indicator next to the non-slip foot pads which help you keep an eye on the battery life while you ride. The product itself weighs only 20 pounds and is designed to accommodate all riders between 25 lbs and 220 lbs. You will also find a convenient carrying bag in the package for safe and simple transportation of the hoverboard when it cannot be ridden.


The only drawback worth noting for this inexpensive model of hoverboard is the absence of Bluetooth speakers. If listening to music is one of your priorities while riding on your hoverboard, you will need to look for a different model.

#2. Tomoloo Q2C Self-Balancing Scooter

Tomoloo Q2C Self-Balancing ScooterHere is yet another model from Tomoloo since it is so popular among kids and adults in terms of price as well as performance. Q2C is not just a high performance hoverboard but also among the safest ones on the market since it comes with UL2272 certification, non-slip foot pads and tons of other safety features to help you enjoy a safe experience.

Additionally, the hoverboard is built in compliance with all the high standards and is temperature resistant to prevent any damage to the device from overcharging or other potential dangers.

Of course, like any other high-quality hoverboard, you will also find built-in speakers in the design which connect to your phone via Bluetooth and let you enjoy music in supreme sound quality.


Although the hoverboard gives an incredible riding experience, it is only designed for flat surfaces. You won’t find the model suitable for off-road cruising.

#3. Swagtron Hoverboard for Kids

Swagtron T5Swagtron is among the top hoverboard manufacturing companies and is known for creating the most powerful and high-performance boards in the industry. The model T5 is an entry level hoverboard created by Swagtron especially for kids and beginner riders. The best thing about the hoverboard is that although it comes at a fairly low price when compared to the other Swagtron models, it presents all the quality features that a high-end hoverboard should offer. Weighing only 19 lbs, it can support over 275 lbs of rider weight. Safety is one of the top priorities of Swagtron for which they have ensured that all their products including this one comes with UL2272 certification to guarantee a safe riding experience for the kids. The high-quality aluminum wheels are equipped with 7” tires for superior traction and an effortless ride on smooth surfaces.

The footpads are specially designed for smaller feet of the kids while the waterproof housing ensures that you can ride through puddles without posing any danger to your board. Although the motor is powerful at 250 watts, the top speed is purposefully kept at 8 mph for a safe riding experience for beginners. The hoverboard also includes a learning mode for beginners to learn the sport safely. You can climb inclined surfaces with up to 15 degrees of incline using the board and cover maximum range of 14 miles on flat surface after a full charge. A full charge will usually only take about 2 hours to complete.


The lower top speed of the hoverboard may not suit the expert riders. Also, the smaller wheels of the hoverboard make it unsuitable for off-road riding. You also need to be aware that the hoverboard is a basic model and does not have any Bluetooth speakers.

The 6.5” wheels are rather small which makes the hoverboard suitable only for city riding. Off-road cruising isn’t possible with this entry level hoverboard. Also, a top speed of 10 MPH is a bit higher than what would be preferred for safe riding of kids.
