Hoverboard for sale that works – hoverboards to consider buying
Here are some recommendations. Check out the best hoverboard 2016 review and the cost for hoverboards when considering which hoverboard to buy.
Jetson Electric Gyro Self Balancing Scooter Turbo
This hoverboard comes with a Samsung battery which is very important when choosing a hoverboard. I would avoid hoverboards that don’t come with a Samsung battery as there have been reports of hoverboards bursting into flames because of sub standard batteries.
As with any hoverboard, you can lean forward or backward to facilitate movement. Although you can find quite a few other self balancing scooters in the market, this one when reviewed by our panel got top marks. The most advanced model can give you a peak speed of around 13 mph which is very fast! I would recommend buying one of the less powerful models if you are buying for your child. If children do use this hoverboard, it is recommended that they wear a hoverboard helmet.
The Jetson makes use of gyroscope sensors which enable the self-balancing technology. Rides are safe and very enjoyable on this board. At just 26.4 pounds, it is one of the most lightweight hoverboards in the market today. Because of the Samsung battery, you can achieve a range of up to 10 miles on a single charge which is very good. You can achieve a peak speed of 8 mph which is slightly slower than others in the market, but is fast enough for many. It allows you 0 ° corner and 15 ° climbing.
Cellto Electronic Self Balancing Scooter, [Lambo] Series [Black Red] 2 Wheel 6.5″ Inch Motorized Hoverboard
The powerboard is extremely fast and is as good as other hoverboards in the market, if not better. It comes with sturdy 6.5 inch wheels which enable stability and an excellent ride quality. This hoverboard is therefore suitable for children. The acceleration is easy and smooth, and the board allows riders to turn corners very easily. You can go backwards aswell as forwards using this self balancing scooter. If you wish to turn corner at top speeds, all you need to do is lean from one side to another and the board will do the rest to ensure the cornering is done safely.
The maximum weight capacity of the board is 220 pounds, which ensures that you can enjoy perfect rides even if you are slightly bulky. The battery can be charged within an hour, and on a single charge it can provide you with 6 hours of battery life. It comes with a battery power level indicator which allows you to monitor the power left on the hoverboard. That way, you can avoid the battery cutting out due to lack of power when you are using the hoverboard and falling off as a result. We found that you can ride many miles on one charge; so a ride around town is very easy. The range of the hoverboard depends on how fast you go and the weight of the user, but a range of around 10 km is what we found when we tested the hoverboard. Now you can pretend you are in Back to the Future!
