#3 Swagtron T1 and T3 Hoverboards
Swagway is now known as Swagtron. It is one of the best known and most media present brand among hoverboards and for sure one of true leaders on the self balancing scooters market. Swagtron pays attention to safety and Swagtron T1 uses certified UL 2271 listed SentryShield battery system that makes the SwagTron T1 the safest hoverboard available today.
Swagtron T1 is a “speed monster” and runs as fast as 8+ mph. So before running it on maximum speed you might need to use one extra option Swagtron T1 has and its called “learning mode”. Learning mode, when it is on won’t give you the possibility of maximum speed. Maybe you should keep this option active before you really learn how to drive hoverboard. Also, there is one downside of this speed. The maximum radius of one fully charged battery is just 12 miles . Recharging of the battery last aproximately one hour.
Also, you may like better Swagtron T3 hoverboard. The main differences between the SwagTron T3 and the Swagtron T1 are high quality Bluetooth speakers, the futuristic stylish new looks, the in-built carry strap, the 5 point battery charge indicator, the Smartphone App, and the Pro Mode for expert riders. But remember, Swagtron T3 costs a bit more (check ) than Swagtron T1.
Hoverzon hoverboards are quality products with reasonable price. They use UL 2272 certified batteries and fireproof exterior casing and sensor pedals. Hoverzon is equipped with dual independent motor and gear stabilization and smart battery management system with 5 levels. LED battery level indicator means always knowing how much power is left. Hoverzon hoverboard comes in black, white, blue, gold, pink and red option.
The Powerboard by Hoverboard is making a comeback with UL2272 certification (it means that this model is in compliance with new strict safety regulations). The main advantage is that Powerboard by Hoverboard is from a US based company. Why this is so important? First, company uses more advanced technology and more quality materials than most of the competition which makes this hoverboard user friendly and much safer. It comes with very affordable price and comes in black, white, red and blue color.
