As the hottest gizmo of 2015, hoverboards are still getting a lot of attentions this season. But finding the right one could be somehow tricky. Here are something you need to know before you dive in.
1.Beware of where you buy from.
Many third-party sellers (such as Amazon, overstock or eBay) have pulled most hoverboard models from their sites at the end of 2015, safety concerns. With this sudden stop of selling, a lot of stock and returned products are still remained in the market. So you will notice a lot of websites are offering ‘clearance sale’ on hoverboards with unbelievable low prices now. But beware of these outdated products, they might be using cheap batteries and not providing y for.warranty. We (smart-balancewheel.com) receive emails from customers who bought their hoverboards from eBay or other knockoff websites which do not provide any customer services afterward even they claim so. Unfortunately, we can provide much help for them because the products they purchased are with inferior quality. In conclusion, you get what you pay for.
2. Pick the hoverboard with improved quality and performance.
If you are ordering online, it is tough to find out when the product was manufactured. But there are big differences in quality and performance for hoverboards made in 2015 comparing to those made recently. To avoid potential fire catching accident, batteries and control system are greatly improved to meet UL standard. Hoverbaords that can be controlled by smartphone APPs were launched recently.
3. Which wheel size hoverboard should I choose?
There are three main wheel sizes to choose from when it comes to buying hoverboard (6.5 inch, 8 inch and 10 inch). With a smaller wheel, it will be easier to carry around because of the size and less weight. However, the smaller wheel limits hoverbaord to areas with wide, smooth and flat surfaces.
The 10 inch wheel wheel, on the other hand, will give you a smoother ride on different kinds of surfaces, even on rough terrain. If you want to do more cool hoverboard tricks or moves, you should go for the smaller wheel size (6.5 inch). If you want to use it mainly as transportation tool, 10 inch will be a better choice. And you can always pick the 8 inch models, which provide a compromised balance in between.
