Powerboard hoverboard two wheel self balancing scooter review

Pros

The Powerboard two wheel self balancing scooter is made HoverBoard, a trusted American company based in the USA.  You can order the Powerboard from Amazon, it's also carried by a few other retailors. They deliver a high quality product with fast shipping and a battery that meets stringent safety standards. It's now UL 2272 certified, meaning the battery has met stringent safety requirements. The Powerboard hoverboard has a top speed of 8mph, about the same speed as the Razor Hovertrax at 6mph. It can be fully charged in under 60 minutes and has a battery life of up to 6 hours, making it ideal for long commutes. The charge rate and battery life really separate the Powerboard from its competitors, which have much longer charge times of around 3 hours and significantly shorter battery lives. An LED indicator displays the remaining battery charge to the rider. The Powerboard hover board also comes with a 1 year warranty and USA based customer support.

Cons

The price of the Powerboard is more expensive than some other brands on the market, such as the Hover X. You may pay more for the Powerboard, but you are paying for a high quality board with better battery life and a solid warranty. Faces similar issues as other 7-inch wheel hoverboards, it will be difficult to ride on rough terrains. If you are looking for a hoverboard that can handle rough terrains, check out the StreetSaw. They make a model with 10 inch wheels that can handle just about any surface. It also isn't very water resistant, so use a carrying case in rough weather conditions.

My Experience

Ordered my Powerboard from Amazon and it arrived 3 days later, one of the many benefits of buying from a USA based seller. The board was everything I expected right out of the box! I immediately noticed the high quality of the materials used, show more

something I can't say for some of the cheaper brands out there.  I ordered the black color, it has a very sleek look to it. The first thing I did was read the instruction manual, and per the instructions I then plugged it in to charge before turning it on. You should do this with any hoverboard to ensure that you don't damage the battery. The battery life and charge time are phenomenal, exactly as advertised. This is a reason in and of itself to buy a Powerboard, I spend much less time charging and more time cruising around on my board. Overall this is is a great hoverboard, easily one of the best I've tested! I've been using it for a little over a month now and haven't had any problems with the board.

  1. Hi,
    Just ordered a Powerboard for my son. I saw on your website that you gave it the best rating. Was wondering, is this hoverboard fire safe?

    1. Hi Paula,
      While I can’t guarantee that any hoverboard is 100% safe, I can recommend the hoverboards that are still available for sale on Amazon and the Powerboard is one of the. These hoverboards have passed stringent safety guidelines and you can be reasonably certain that they are fire safe. If you’re looking for more info check out my post on Hoverboard fire safety.

  2. This is why you need to actually take into account choosing the
