Are you planning to buy self-balancing scooter better known as Hover board? Even if not immediately, at least you wish to have it the neat future? If yes, this article might help you to understand what you should expect and it will make your choice easy by weighing down your alternatives. But before we start, let’s make a note that, not all hoverboards are same even though they look so.
If you have a plan to buy, these small guide do help you to understand the process a bit more. And you need to have enough knowledge as they are not cheap. Segway or hoverboard comes at heavy price and you must be updated before you spend on it.
It can be categorized into 4 main points which is the basic to know:-
You need hover boards to first decide on what brand you want to buy. Then the next step will be which store will help you buy that brand. It is obvious to go for big brands that could give you quality items. But that would come with a premium price as they add up too many other cost like import duty, advertising cost etc. That make the price 2-4X more than its real price.
So what is the alternative? The best is to buy one which is manufactured in your country. So if you live in Australia, you should buy Australian Hoverboards. Also you should buy from store, who are specialized in selling only Hoverboards.
2. Return terms
You have to read carefully about their return policy. You should not get something which you never wanted; if you get such, you should have an option to use return policy and get refund. Also the return policy should be valid for good period so that you get enough time to check and test the item.
This is often discussed and there is no compromise on this. Make sure that they are not using trash battery brands; not only that their life will be too short but it also put your safety at risk. Search online and look out for the battery used in that product.
Look into the user review if they got any issue with overheating while in charge or when you are riding. Again no compromise here even if you get it for free.
Size is also an important factor to consider when buying hoverboards. If the size is very small or big for your requirement, you won’t feel comfortable riding it and that will take away all the fun.
