Recently, the self-balancing scooter which is also regarded as the hoverboard has gained so much prominence as a means of transport all over the world. However, as the prominence has increased, complaints about Hoverboard batteries being short-circuited have increased drastically. At the beginning of this development, it was a minor discussion.
However, this particular complaint has increased and hence, facilitated poor purchase of the Self Balancing Scooter limiting the commercial potential of this technology as well as reducing the spread of this ecofriendly means of transportation.
This problem which was once thought to be restricted to particular makes of the product seems to be a general issue at the end of the day. In early 2018, the Consumer Product Safety Commission of the United States (CPSC) declared an official recall of all Hoverboards since the means of transportation have now become a waste of fortune.
I guess you are wondering “How does the call back of Hoverboards imply a waste of fortune?” By implication of the action of the CPSC, half of a Million unit of Hoverboards which had been sold were returned to eight manufacturers for repair and as a result, none was bought. In fact, as a result of the malfunctioning of these transport tools, thanks to the batteries being short circuited, properties worth 2 Million Dollars have been damaged.
Today, this mistake seems to have been corrected and, in the market, today we have Hoverboards guaranteed safe for use. This is a testimony to man’s ability to solve his problems.
Here is a review of Hoverboards for the year 2018 so far. This is more like a directory for a Hoverboard lover who wants to find luxury and ease in transport. This is a top ten ranking of Hoverboards. Be enlightened!

The uniqueness of this hoverboard is found in its padded knee gear. Unlike other hoverboards that are steered with foot pivoted steering, this hoverboard engages the knees also making the hoverboard easier to steer. This equipment like I said is so expensive. It costs $598.99 on amazon.
Still descending the pyramid of hoverboards, we have the fourth position held by another SWATRON product, the SWAGTRON T580.

The 7th spot is occupied by a new name in the count down so far. In this position lies the Razor Hovertrax 2.0 which is also dubbed as the smartest hoverboard. Like the other hoverboards described so far, this hoverboard has a UL2270 certification as well as it is equipped with led headlights and break lights. It has a dual 350w power producing motors. However, this product has an unimpressive 60 minutes duration when fully charged. What a shame as it seems to have crossed from being a means of transportation to become a mere toy.
