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.

What is a gyroscope on a hoverboard?
