Key features to note when buying a hoverboard
There are a few features you’ll want to make note of when choosing the best model for you. When looking, keep in mind that most hoverboards will state a recommended age range. For regular hoverboards, the recommended age range is often 13+ years old; though, some are specifically designed with additional safety features to be suitable for younger children.
For safety, the latest hoverboards need to be UL certified. That means the hoverboard you purchase follows industry safety standards as set out by Underwriter Laboratories (UL). You’ll find a UL certificate within the packaging of your new device.
Hoverboards have a range of charge times, so if you need to get back on the road quickly you’ll want to choose a model with a shorter charging time. You’ll find hoverboards that take a half-hour to charge and some models that take up to six hours to charge.
