Frequently Asked Questions

We stock hoverboards in a range of designs and colors as well as additional features such as Bluetooth, LED Lights and more!

It’s a great idea to buy a hoverboard that includes a warranty, 1 year or longer. Just in case you get a defective part, a bad battery, or it just plain stops working. A warranty is a great idea and it protects your investment. All of our top picks come with at least a 1-year warranty. Another feature to look out for is customer support. Look for models that offer a 24-hour response time and free lifetime technical support. Models offering a one-year warranty are great but if you can’t get a hold of anyone and their email response time is several weeks, then you might as well look elsewhere.

Many hoverboards Johannesburg come with Bluetooth speakers with stereo surround sound so that you can easily listen to your music while on the go. Is this a feature that you want? If not, you can save some money by avoiding models with extras like these. Chances are you’ll enjoy surround sound better in the comfort of your home cinema system not out and about. The same goes for models that include apps for your smartphone. These apps can add some really nice features, like surround sound music control, remote control and much more, but if you are not interested, look for models without these features to save money.

First off, hoverboards do not really hover. At least not in 2021. But they are still fun and you might be wondering how you actually ride one. We can help with that too. First, step onto the device with one foot Next, step on with the other foot and position your feet as far apart as comfortable. This will give you the best stance to control your hoverboard. Stand normally. To get going, lean forward or gently shift your weight forward. Only make small shifts in your weight. To turn just lean the appropriate foot forward. Those are the basics and it really is that easy. Whether it is a Segway, a self-balancing scooter or a hoverboard, they all operate the same.

Generally, hoverboards can cost between R1500 to as much as R3500. In our research, we found that you can skip both the R1500 price point as well as the R3500 price point. The sweet spot for hoverboards with quality features is in the R1500 to R2500 price point range. The price of your hoverboard purchase will depend on what features you are looking for. More feature heavy and high-end specs will cost you more.

What is a gyroscope on a hoverboard?

By standard definition, a gyroscope is a spinning wheel or disk. On this wheel, the axis of rotation is able to freely move in any direction or orientation. While any movement is occurring, the axis of rotation will remain unaffected regardless of whether the whole apparatus is moved or tilted.

Hoverboards Johannesburg Buying Guide

The Most Important Features to Consider
  1. Safety Rating – Your number one concern when purchasing a new hoverboard is safety. A few years back, hoverboards were known to catch on fire and since then the industry has done the responsible thing and made them much safer. You would be hard-pressed to find any reports of fire today because of all the efforts to make hover boards safety certified. First and foremost, look for UL 2272 Certification on any hoverboard you buy. UL certified means it has passed all safety tests and has all the safety features you need to ride without problem.
  2. The Correct Tire Size – Tire size is another important consideration when it comes to self balancing scooters. They come in a variety of sizes. Some are smaller and some are larger. Tire size affects not only the stability of the ride but also where you can go with it and what kind of terrain it will be able to handle. If you’re looking to simply sidewalk-surf around the neighborhood, smaller tires will do the trick. If you’re looking to do more and go “off-road”, you’ll want larger tires that will handle more types of terrain better.
  3. Battery Life/Charging Time – Longer battery life is good, but it isn’t everything. For instance, what’s better is a long battery life if your hoverboard only goes 5 MPH. You want to balance a long-lasting battery with speed, performance and charge time. Look for a long battery life that supports an impressive run time and battery indicators in a model that also delivers the speed that you want. Some boards also come with a smart battery management system that monitors and protects the battery.
  4. Mobile Application – Opting for a hoverboard with a dedicated mobile application is also a good decision. The mobile application in some ways can be the hoverboard’s best feature, allowing you to control the unit, check diagnostics, update firmware, customize the flashing lights, adjust the speed, and turn on the anti-theft alarm.
  5. Range – Along with battery life and charge times, the range that your hoverboard delivers on a single charge is one of the top considerations. Look for the range that you can get in order to get the most out of your purchase. A great range with short charging times means less waiting around and more going places. A suitable range is 9-12 miles.
  6. Durable, Lightweight Construction – Like any other vehicle, one of your top concerns should be excellent build quality. You want a tough and rugged frame that will last. Some models even offer scratch resistant materials. Choosing a strong and solid electric scooter or hoverboard means that it will have a longer lifetime in service. A good choice is aluminum alloy. Aluminum alloy is very tough and a suitable material for the body. Another option is carbon fiber. Carbon fiber is one of the most lightweight yet durable materials known to man. Along with a solid construction, you also want a lightweight unit. A lighter electric hoverboard generally means more speed and a better battery capacity. It also makes for a smoother ride.
  7. Motor – Obviously, the more powerful the electric motors, the more your hoverboard can deliver. A 250-watt motor is fine, but a dual motor, each with 250 watts of power, is going to give you much more power. That can equal more speed and better performance overall. The bigger the motor, the better.
  8. Weight Capacity / Carrying Capacity – The maximum weight your hoverboard can handle before performance suffers is also important to consider. Most hoverboards have a weight limit of either 165 pounds or 225 pounds and on a hoverboard, your body weight is used to control movement. So, do your research on max weight before you buy so you won’t be disappointed if you exceed that limit. 
  9. Ease of Use – Most hoverboards only require you to use your feet to control the device. However, there are some options that include knee control, like the Segway miniPRO. We didn’t include options like this on our list because we found it to be harder to control for kids and novices. Look instead for hoverboards that feature different riding modes like training modes. These different learning modes make boards easy to ride for adults, kids and novices.
