Hoverboard Repair FAQ

Why are they called hoverboards if they do not hover?

What most people call “hoverboards” do not actually hover. The popularity of this name took off mostly due to marketing and confusion. Also, “self balancing gyro scooter with 2 wheels” just sounds strange. Real boards which levitate or hover over the ground start out at like $20,000. The scooters are also called mini-Segways, Swagways, gyro boards and many other names.

 

Why do hoverboards catch on fire?

Some hoverboards contain low quality Li-Ion (Lithium Ion) batteries. When these batteries are mass produced and then used in something like a hoverboard or scooter which moves around and is banged around, the cheap batteries short circuit causing heat and / or fire and even explosions. Quality batteries are produced by companies such as Samsung and LG, but not all hoverboard manufacturers use a quality battery cell. Laptops, cell phones, and other electronics have had this same exact problem for over a decade; the problem is not necessarily hoverboards, but hoverboards which use cheap batteries.

 

How long does shipping take?

Scooters may only be shipped via GROUND. We recommend UPS Ground which is fairly quick. We’re right near Raleigh and we get most packages very fast, even via Ground. Additional information:

  • USPS Postal Service no longer allows electric gyro scooters on airplanes. Also see: Li-Ion battery shipping restrictions.
