How to Shop for a Hoverboard
You should look at the weight limit of a hoverboard before you buy it. Most can support up to 220 pounds, but some are less. If you are heavier than this, you will need to get a heavy-duty model like the Halo Rover.
The other thing to look at is the range. Take this with a grain of salt because manufacturers tend to be liberal with their estimates, but you can still use this to get a gauge the battery strength. You can also check for things like the max speed.
Some people want speakers and other fancy features on their hoverboards. You can find models that have this. You should always look for a model that has lights on it in case you want to ride it at night.
All hoverboards that are sold on Amazon and major retailers are Ul 2272 certified. This is an independent certification that test the hoverboard to make sure the battery is safe. You should only buy products that have gone through this testing.
Overall, there are some fantastic deals on hoverboards this Black Friday. We expect more models to be released on Amazon tomorrow and the day after. We will keep this post updated with new offers.
