My daughter just got this for her 10th birthday. She LOVES it. It came fully charged and ready to go. She rides it continuously and says it is nice and smooth. Battery life is good, and charges up in about 3 hours if it\'s completely dead. Very happy with this Hoverboard. =)
My 8 yr old son bought this with money he saved. He loves it. It seems to be very good quality. They kids have had a lot of fun riding around the house. He is able to ride it for about an hour before it needs to be recharged. It doesn\'t take long to recharge. We do keep the battery unplugged when not being charged and only charge it when we are nearby.
Well so far we\'ve only had this thing for about a week and it\'s been great! It belongs to my 10 year old, but everyone in the house loves it. My 4 year old rides around on it on his knees, and it\'s quite hilarious. With that being said, it\'s not very easy for fingers to get caught between the wheels and plastic. Although, that\'s not to say it would be impossible, so still use caution. I\'m not exactly sure how many hours they\'re getting out of a full charge, but I do know is at the very least 3 hours. It\'s not loud and doesn\'t scruff up my floors, so I allow it in the house.
I immediately charged the Hoverboard after opening my package.
After waiting for 20 minutes, i detached the power cord from the power board.
There is a silver button besides the charging button. Pressed the silver button and the unit is immediately ON.
I placed both my feet on the pressure pads.
This unit is sensitive. I can move forward or backward or turn around by changing the pressure with my feet.
If i want to move forward, i will press the overboard with ball of my foot.
If i want to move backward, put more pressure using my heels
If i want to turn right, i put more pressure with my left foot.
Getting off, i have to make sure that i am properly balance then i step off on the back side of Hoverboard.
It took me awhile to secure my footing but I had SO MUCH FUN when i learned how to maneuver it.
I received this product at a discount in exchange of my honest review.
