Never before has this adage made as much sense to me as it did after I received my package of Powerboard by Hoverboard Self Balancing 2 Wheel Electric Scooter. This automobile is an improved version of the hover-board, only more attractive and cost-effective. It has been a remarkable journey for the adventurer in me since the following contents arrived at my doorstep.
Powerboard by HOVERBOARD Contents:
- 1 Main unit (scooter).
- 1 100-240v AC Charging cable/Plug-In adaptor.
- 1 User Manual.
Features Of Powerboard by HOVERBOARD:
- The first quality that appealed to me was the design and the color scheme of this product. The one I ordered is in red and black.
- It weighs at 27 lbs/12kgs approximately, which makes it hefty enough to ride on, yet light enough to be carried around.
- The high-grade built ensures that this scooter won’t fall apart under you, if you happen to take a few tumbles in the beginning.
- The recommended speed is around 4mph to 6mph but it can go up to 8mph when fully charged.
- The little beep sound when approaching high-speed keeps you under check.
- It takes 6 hours of usage to bring the battery down and only an hour to get it fully charged.
- The grip patterns of the foot rests are effectual in keeping you from slipping.
- It may take some time getting used to if you have no previous experience in skateboarding and balancing. I too had no prior experience (unless you consider clumsy falls on a regular basis as experience!) but could ride after an hour of practicing.
- The one year warranty it comes with makes it more trustworthy.
- I love the fact that it is environment friendly.
- The charge voltage required to power it is not high enough to strain any appliances.

Using the Scooter: The Day I Found My Super Gadget
The first thing I noticed about the Powerboard by Hoverboard Self Balancing Scooter was its lustrous outer covering. It was glistening but that was not to be for long as I started using it immediately. It took me an hour to get a hang of it but I have to admit that even the practice sessions were such a delight.
Once adept, I took it everywhere from grocery shopping to my office because I am someone who likes to do my bit when it comes to the environment. It has a built that does not support suspension system but it is not meant for high bumps.
I lived my childhood all over again with this awesome tool that silently carried my 200lbs. The installation of motors is so clever that it is practically noise free. I particularly liked this feature as I hate declaring my arrival from a mile away.
The plastic used is heavy-duty but not scratch free and this I learnt the hard way after bumping into things a few times. The battery life seems consistent, serving up to 6 hours at near top speed of 6mph.
I generally navigate at this speed but you can go faster, which will bring the battery life down but not more than an hour. Overall, it is a very utilitarian product. I am planning to get one more for my kid brother who just won’t leave mine alone!
