how to maintain your hoverboard

You've just bought your first Hoverboard and you're wondering how to protect it and keep it looking like new? It's normal and to help you we're going to describe the points to keep in mind as well as our professional advice.

By following our recommendations you will be able to use your hoverboard skateboard for many years without any worries!

Recharge the battery regularly

The most important point in the maintenance of a hoverboard is the management of the battery. Indeed, it is the most important component of your gyropod because without a good battery it is impossible to operate your device.

Since all our hoverboards are equipped with a Samsung smart battery you have one less thing to worry about. These batteries use Lithium-Ion technology which consists of a battery pack in a protective case. But like all batteries, it is necessary to perform full recharge cycles regularly in order to optimize the life span.

It is therefore recommended to fully recharge the battery at least once a month. In addition, it is best to recharge the battery after it has been completely discharged. That is, you should let your hoverboard discharge completely before recharging it.

By following this simple principle your battery will then hold its charge for many years.

Paying attention to your driving

A hoverboard is still a device with electronic components at its heart. It is therefore not recommended to drive it in an extreme manner. Therefore, it is not recommended to go down the stairs or jump off the pavement. A hoverboard is not meant to be used in a skate park to perform acrobatic tricks.

Even though ourall-terrain hoverboards have large wheels and a raised platform to better handle curbs and holes, they are still electric scooters and are sensitive to impact.

Have fun with your hoverboard but bear in mind that heavy impacts will potentially damage the internal components!

Also, be careful when using the device for the first few times, especially if you are still new to hoverboards. This will prevent damage to the body of your device.

Opt for protective accessories

The easiest way to protect the body of your gyropod from scratches and bumps is to invest in a hoverboard cover. These silicone covers work in a similar way to smartphones and absorb shocks.

This greatly limits the possibility of cosmetic damage, scratches or cracks in your hoverboard's shell.

There are protections for all types of hoverboard wheels 6.5", 8", 8.5" or 10".

Comply with sealing standards

All hoverboards are equipped with the IP54 waterproof standard. This means that they are protected against dust and water jets from all directions.

On the other hand, this standard does not warn against immersion in water! So don't go rolling around in big puddles of water If you do, you will damage your battery and the motherboard of the device. Indeed, waterproof does not mean unsinkable!

This is a concept that the youngest among us do not necessarily have in mind and when the machine has passed through a large number of puddles it is already too late to turn back.

Respect the weight limit

Most hoverboards can support a maximum weight of 100 kg to 120 kg. Beyond this weight, there is no guarantee that the device will hold the load over time and you run the risk of breaking your device in half.

Indeed, under the hull, the hoverboard is composed of an aluminium platform and once it is cracked it is too late to repair it. So don't try to ride a hoverboard with two people, it's not designed for that.

If your personal weight is close to the maximum allowable limit, then we advise you to place your feet at the ends of the hoverboard. This will allow you to distribute the weight more evenly over the wheels and thus lighten the central aluminium structure.

Storage of your hoverboard

A final point of vigilance is the storage of your hoverboard. To take care of your hoverboard, you should not leave it to sleep outside. It may seem obvious to say, but hoverboards don't like the cold, and even less so in sub-zero temperatures. So don't store your hoverboard in the garage in the middle of winter for example!

Condensation and frost can damage the battery. It is therefore best to store your hoverboard inside the house at room temperature and away from humidity.
