This product is discontinued. Please visit our self balance scooter comparison page for alternative options.

The Powerboard by Hoverboard is from a US based company. It is equipped with an advanced self balancing technology that makes it easier and safer to use compared to other scooters in the market. The biggest selling point of the Powerboard is its 6 hour battery life.

We took a look at the Powerboard by Hoverboard in closer detail to see if it is really worth its price tag.

SPECIFICATIONS AND FEATURES

The Powerboard by Hoverboard isn’t hugely affordable by any means. However, it is considered as one of the best hoverboards in the market.

The Powerboard by Hoverboard has a maximum speed of 8 kilometers per hour. It has a very sturdy and durable build which is evidenced by its 30lbs weight. It is quite heavy but its manufacturers were kind enough to include a carry-on bag in the package thus making it easier for users to transport it.

The battery life of the Powerboard is like no other. A single charge can last up to 6 hours of use. If used sparingly, it can last for days before running out of juice. That’s something that can really benefit those who are looking for a board they can use for a short commute to the bus stop on their daily commute to work without needing to charge it again at the end of the day. But how long do I need to charge it, you ask? Just under 1 hour!

The Powerboard by Hoverboard is built for both kid and adult use. It’s foot panel is wide enough for adult feet and is covered with an anti-slip matting to prevent kids from slipping and losing their balance. The maximum capacity of this self balancing scooter is 220 lbs.

THE GOOD

Because it is sold by a USA company, the user will benefit from fast shipping. Delivery will be made as fast as possible to reach the destination.

Even with a max speed of 8kph, this excellent balancing scooter is better and safer than others. It allows smooth and simple acceleration and enables the user to drift corners with ease. The user simply leans forward for forward motion and backwards to reverse direction. It also allows one to lean side to side to master cornering at high speeds.

Additionally, this magnificent balancing scooter is easy to ride. In just less than 5 minutes, one can begin to ride around. Most people master it in as little as 30 seconds. Riding it is very enjoyable . It comes in different colors such as black, white, red, blue. Most importantly, it is 100% new and of great quality.

Last but not least, it comes with one year warranty as well as US customer support. If at any point the buyer finds issues with powered board, he/she is advised to contact the manufacturer’s customer service department.

THE BAD

Being such an amazing and popular product, it is not surprising that the Powerboard by Hoverboard is being imitated by different companies and being sold as the real thing. This has caused quite a stir among online buyers because the fakes are look exactly the same in pictures thus making it hard to tell whether or not they are actually buying the real thing.

Fake Powerboards are not built as sturdy at the original board. They are only likely to last a month or so. Furthermore, there have been reports that those who purchased fake Powerboards (thinking they were getting an authentic one) experienced heating problems when their device was charging. Others reported that their board stopped working altogether after being charged.

The manufacturers of the authentic Powerboard have been fielding complaint after complaint from people who purchased their boards online from unauthorized distributors. Naturally, if the product being complained about is a fake, they will not issue a refund.

However, they are doing their best to stop the production of fake Powerboards. Interested buyers should also be careful in purchasing their boards especially if they’re going to buy online. Only purchase from authorized Powerboard by Hoverboard dealers to avoid getting a fake item.

THE VERDICT

The Powerboard by Hoverboard is a great, easy to use, and durable product. We highly recommend it for those looking for a quality self balancing scooter and isn’t afraid to pay the price. However, we cannot stress enough the importance of buying only from authorized retailers because almost all of the problems reported in customer reviews in online marketplaces pertain to fake Powerboards and not authentic ones.
