Epikgo hoverboards are famous as high-quality hoverboards made of premium materials, very durable and reliable.

    Who manufactures the battery in the Jetson Rover 8?
    Are the tires on the Epikgo inflatable or solid rubber?

    • admin

      The tires on EPIKGO are solid rubber. We are not sure about Jetson Rover V8 battery but its is UL2271 Certified, which means it passed all the tests.

  2. Christopher Martinez

    Can it go through cracked streets, sand, grass, mud, dirt, and snow?

    • admin

      cracked streets yes, dirt yes.
      Grass, snow and sand- Depends how deep the snow (grass or sand) is. One inch yes, 10 inches not really

  3. Jarvas

    So the boards are the same, but the batteries are different? Are any of the UL 2272 batteries better than the others?

    • admin

      Actually, batteries are UL2271 certified, the boards are UL2272 certified. As we know all EPIKGO hoverboards are using LG certified batteries.

      • J

        I spoke to Jetson. They are also using certified LG batteries. Are there any differences between Epikgo, Jetson, and Halo?

    • admin

      Actually, EPIKGO is also there in that table,but the name of the company that distributes Epikgo is ENDLISS TECHNOLOGY INC (Hayward, CA 94544 USA ). That is why certification is under their name

    These are all the same white label product.

    I was able to buy a Kiwano KO-X last November during their $400 promotion. It has a Samsung UL(same as the other 3) listing. After less than 10 hours of riding, my 80 pound daughter managed to crack the right foot pad housing, wide open. She doesn’t know what happened…? I know the Halo Rover claims to be unbreakable… Jeston Rover and Epikgo just say durable off-road. If I don’t hear back from Kiwano, about replacement parts or repair, does anyone know where parts can be ordered for any of these models?

      Hello M. Leif Lindahl,
      I’ve the same problem with my KIWANO KO-X (buy one month ago).
      After less than 5 hours of riding, my 90 pound son has crack the top Platform cover, just on the edge of the foot pad (just near the 2 screws under the top).
      My retailler change it but the problem come back on the new top Platform only after 2 hours of riding ! (Smalls cracks appear always near the 2 screws under the top). KIWANO seems to be the first to offer this type of all-terrain smart scooter but is it really a good product ? Have you find a new part more robust ?
      For the ADMIN, Is the Jetson Rover V8 is better and really “unbreakable” ? Has this problem ever been reported for the Jetson Rover V8 or the EPIKGO ?

      • admin

        So far we didn’t have any complaints about Jetson Rover V8.

  6. Showtan

    Any idea where I can buy replacement body parts for Epikgo Sport ?
    My twin 9yr old boys each have one and the plastics as well and BOTH frames have cracked.
