The 4 key points to check when buying a children's hoverboard

Point 1: Take into account the child's age and weight

There is no real minimum age to practice the hoverboard.

On the other hand, balance, dexterity, and above all weight are essential . Some children have good balance as early as 5 years old.

However, we estimate that from the age of 10 , the child can have a good command of it in just a few minutes.

But it is the weight that is THE determining criterion . A hoverboard is equipped with sensors located under the pedals. Most hoverboards detect users from a weight of 25-30 kg .

Point 2: Check the autonomy of the hoverboard

This varies according to the models, and will determine the type of use that can be made of the machine (work, leisure, walks, games, etc.).

For example, our model for young children, the Baby , will have a range of 10 km, and will be perfect for toddlers from 2 to 7 years old who already want to learn about 100% electric skiing!

The older ones can opt for our inexpensive hoverboard , the Light, equipped with LEDs and Bluetooth .

How is the autonomy of a hoverboard calculated?

You should know that the autonomy of a hoverboard is calculated according to several criteria:

  • The surface of the ground : The state of the ground has an impact on the autonomy. The more bumpy the ground, the more effort the battery will require.
  • Weight : The heavier the user, the shorter the battery life will be
  • The outside temperature : The recommended temperature range is -10° and 30°C during use, but a hoverboard should not be left in the cold without use, at the risk of strongly affecting the capacities of the battery.
  • Speed ​​and driving style : Driving in jerks tends to reduce range

Point 3: Be vigilant about European hoverboard standards

Compliance with safety standards is also an essential criterion when choosing the hoverboard, as well as the brand that offers it for sale.

Here are the main standards that govern the safety of Hoverboards :

  • UL : mechanical, fire and electric shock hazards. USA standard.
  • CE : European safety standard. It is the main one in France.
  • RoHS : validates the restriction of the use of hazardous substances
  • MSDS : this is the product safety data sheet
  • EMC : on electromagnetic emissions and electrical interference
  • LVD : About Voltage Limits

Point 4: The safety of using the hoverboard
