Never before has this adage made as much sense to me as it did after I received my package of Powerboard by Hoverboard. 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 Package Contents:
- Main unit (scooter).
- 100-240v AC Charging cable/Plug-In adaptor.
- User Manual.
Powerboard by Hoverboard Features:
1) 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.
2) It weighs at 27 lbs/12kgs approximately, which makes it hefty enough to ride on, yet light enough to be carried around.
3) 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.
4) The recommended speed is around 4mph to 6mph but it can go up to 8mph when fully charged.
5) The little beep sound when approaching high-speed keeps you under check.
6) It takes 6 hours of usage to bring the battery down and only an hour to get it fully charged.
7) The grip patterns of the footrests are effectual in keeping you from slipping.
8) 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.
9) The one year warranty it comes with makes it more trustworthy.
10) I love the fact that it is environment friendly.
11) 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 the 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 a 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!

- Twin motors for extra drift and power.

- An LED lights indicator.
- One lithium-ion battery.
- A charging port.
- I had both my 14-year nephew and my 58-year-old mother try it, and they both have been fighting over it ever since!
- Walking my dog while sailing on my chariot, I finally enjoy the walks as much my dog does.
- The rubber tires of Powerboard by Hoverboard Self Balancing Scooter do not go flat.
- The firm grasp of the wheels gives it a non-slippery mobility on all terrains.
- The absence of inflatable tires makes this scooter more portable.
