What are self-balancing electric scooters (hoverboards)?

 

Self-balancing scooters (also known as hoverboards) are a rapidly growing new transport and leisure trend.

The most popular type of balance scooters – which are also referred to as driftboards and hoverboards – are 2 wheel electric self-balancing scooters.

These are effectively the wheels of a Segway which users balance on, leaning forward to move the scooter and leaning back to apply the brakes.

They can take a little bit of getting used to, but once you have the nack they are incredibly fun to use.

With the growing market for balance scooters, manufacturers are getting more and more inventive with their designs.

Now there are balance scooters which have LED lights attached as well as Bluetooth speakers.

If you are not yet too familiar with self-balancing electric scooters, we have put together a quick and handy guide below to answer some of the most common questions are customers have. You can also watch a useful review that is packed with information:

How fast are hoverboards?

A lot of manufacturers list the top speed of their products as between 15-20 km/h, but this is a slight exaggeration.

Most balance scooters that we have tested have a maximum speed of about 10 km/h.

How long do the batteries last on a hoverboard?

All balance scooters should do approximately 35km on a full charge, and recharging the batteries only takes a few hours.

How heavy are hoverboards?

As they are made from ABS + PC material, which makes them impact-resistant, Anti-shock and scratch-resistant, they are pretty light – weighing it at around 10kg.

How much weight can hoverboards take?

They can bear a load of around 100kg – which is just under 16 stone.

What age are hoverboards suitable for?

Anyone over the age of 10 years old can use a balance scooter, although parents and guardians are urged to use their own judgement before buying one for their children.

Where can I use hoverboards?

Technically balance scooters can only be used on private property – so not on public roads or highways.
