You can choose the right hoverboard

Is your son or daughter asking for a hoverboard for their birthday? Or maybe you are in the market to buy one for yourself. Buying a hoverboard could be a challenging thing especially if you do not know what you are looking for. According to My Self Transport, there are four things to look for when in the market to buy a hoverboard.

The first thing to look for is safety. It is recommended that the hoverboard is UL 2272 licensed. Which means it passes all safety points regarding the battery and the charger system and is not vulnerable to any danger when it comes to riding. There have been several cases of hoverboards catching on fire while riding. The problem lies in the lithium-ion battery. Some manufacturers are notorious for cutting corners and jeopardizing the safety of their customers. Watch out for safety recalls when buying the hoverboard.

The second is looking for buyers with good ratings or reputation. Typically, if the buyer offers you a 30-day money back guarantee, then it is safe to buy from them. You also want to know that the buyer is knowledgeable when it comes to the product. A good way determines that is to carefully inspect their site and see if they are properly equipped with information that you need. Try contacting them and asking any questions that you may have.

The third is looking for hoverboards that ride well on different types of surfaces. Whether it is a rough surface like concrete or gravel or maybe even a surface like grass, you want to make sure that your hoverboard will get you to your destination. It is recommended that you purchase a hoverboard that has large wheels. Specifically, ones that are bigger than the standard 6.5 inches. With that said, it is recommended that you ride on flat surfaces to protect the hoverboard as a whole. 

The fourth and final thing to look for when buying a hoverboard is to make sure that the board that you are going to buy will be able to accommodate the weight of the rider. There are different sized boards that can handle different weight classes. A hoverboard that is 4.5” can handle someone up to 120 lbs. A 6.5” board can handle weight up to 220 lbs. A hoverboard that is 8” can hold someone up to 265 lbs. And a 10” board can hold a maximum load capacity of 330 lbs. Please make sure you are extra careful when choosing your hoverboard.

As you can see, there are several important factors when thinking about buying a new hoverboard. It is great to find a board that looks good or has a nice design on it, but what is more crucial is to find one that is right for you. To ensure the safety and ease of purchasing your new board, it is vital to follow these steps.
