Buying Guide, what hoverboard to choose?
Are you unsure about our different Weebot hoverboard models and would you like to know more about the technical specifications?
Here are the 6 points to consider before buying a hoverboard. Then check out our comparison of the best hoverboards on our blog.
The size of the wheels
The size of the wheels on a hoverboard is an essential element. The larger the wheels of the hoverboard, the more stable and comfortable the user will be.
We offer 4 wheel sizes: 6.5 inch (classic and light models), 8 inch (wave models), 8.5 inch (for the top of the range Kiwane models) and 10 inch (4x4 off road models). The 6.5 inch models are mainly reserved for flat roads. If not, you should choose a larger wheel size.
There's nothing more fun than listening to your favourite music while you ride your bluetooth hoverboard! Simply connect to the bluetooth function of a smartphone and the powerful built-in speakers will play your songs in the blink of an eye.
A recognized brand battery
As with all urban mobility products, the central element of a hoverboard is its battery. At Weebot, our hoverboards are equipped with batteries from major specialist brands, such as Samsung or LG. Be careful because if the hoverboard is guaranteed for 2 years, it is not the case of the battery which is guaranteed for 6 months as required in France.
A Hoverboard after sales service in France
Nothing is more frustrating than seeing his hoverboard no longer work. If failures can happen in consumer electronics, the important thing is to have a competent service in France to whom to contact.
Weebot is a French company with a network of physical shops and repair shops in the Paris region and in Lyon.
Unfortunately, this is not the case with most cheap hoverboard sellers. It is crucial to study this point before buying a hoverboard at the best price.
A hoverboard CE standard and 2 year warranty
At Weebot we guarantee every hoverboard for 2 years. This 2 year guarantee is a commitment on our part as well as offering only hoverboards that meet all CE standards at the right price for the best quality.
Hover board Design and Trend
One more last argument to convince you to move to the hoverboard? Look around you in the street! They are already there and we are talking about it more and more in the media. Choose the design of hoverboard you prefer and go on an adventure in electric mode.
Hoverboard with carrying bag
When you buy a hoverboard at the best price from Weebot, you will receive a carrying bag to protect your device from dust, dirt or cold. This will help to keep your gift safe.
4 common questions about the hoverboard
You have made your choice and now you know which cheap hoverboard to buy? But you still have questions about how to use this new cheap gyropod? Here are the top 10 questions asked by Weebot customers before buying a hoverboard at the best price with free delivery.
Autonomy of a Hoverboard ?
The autonomy is indeed one of the most important criteria when buying a hoverboard. The autonomy of a hoverboard will vary from one device to another but on average it is about 20 kilometres.
It will also depend on the weight of the user and the type of terrain you will be riding on.
The heavier the person using the hoverboard, the less battery life the device will have. Weebot hoverboards are equipped with Samsung batteries, which gives them a long battery life.
Speed of a Hoverboard ?
The second most common hoverboard question is speed in urban mobility. As a rule, the speed of an overboard is 10-12 km/h. However, with a fully charged battery it is possible to reach a top speed of 15 km/h. Just like the range of the hoverboard, the speed is sensitive to the type of terrain and the weight of the user.
What weight for a Hoverboard?
It's a legitimate question considering that hoverboards are often intended for children or teenagers. The average weight of a cheap hoverboard like the Weebot Classic is about 12kg.
All-terrain models such as a Kiwane hoverboard are a little heavier because they have bigger wheels. These models weigh around 15 kg. It is often advisable to use a hoverboard carrying bag for added convenience.
Charging time of a Hoverboard ?
Another important question about the price of a cheap hoverboard is the time it takes to recharge the battery. This is fairly easy to answer as all hoverboards take between 1 and 2 hours to fully charge.
How to install a Hoverkart for a Hoverboard?
Step 1: First of all, it is important to calibrate your hoverboard so that it works properly after the hoverkart is installed.
Step 2: Use your fingers to locate the sensors on the hoverboard. These are located on the part where you put your feet on the hoverboard. At this point you should feel a kind of slightly bulging "ball". These are the sensors of the device!
Step 3: Position the metal bars of the Hoverkart on the sensors of the hoverboard
Step 4: Tighten the straps of the hoverkart and secure them to the hoverboard. To prevent your hoverboard from being scratched, we recommend the use of silicone cover to protect it from scratches caused by the metal bars during use.
Are all Hoverboards compatible with the Hoverkart?
Yes, the system is designed in such a way that the cheap hoverkart chassis can be fitted to all models of hoverboards (6.5 inch, 8 inch and 10 inch). The straps can even be attached to curved and off-road hoverboard models. However, please note that hoverboard karts are only suitable for children. You should not weigh more than 55 kg, otherwise the hoverboard sensor system may be damaged.
Hoverboard repair rates
