What are Hoverboard Stickers and Where Can I Get My Own?

BUY NOW

If you’re in the know, you are probably already familiar with what a hoverboard is. Hoverboards are like the skateboard’s hulked out sister. And if you ever owned a skateboard, you know just how important “decorating” it with stickers is. Following suit, hoverboards also have stickers, but these are “hulked out” as well.

SO WHAT ARE HOVERBOARD STICKERS?

These stickers are for far more than just show. If you just went out and spent over $300 on your new self balancing scooter, you want to know its going to last and you’re going to make sure it does.

Sure, hoverboards are supposed to bring out your inner wild child, but that doesn’t mean you have to be reckless and allow every little dent and ding to show. You want peace of mind while riding around like a futuristic madman.

Now, a lot of other accessories can protect your hoverboard, too. These include hoverboard backpacks, silicone cases, hoverboard bags, protector guards, rubber protective strips, and scooter bumpers.

But if you’re looking for style along with protection, then these sticker decals are where its at.

AND WHERE CAN I GET MY OWN?

There are several retailers out there selling hoverboard stickers these days, but there is one manufacturer that stands out from the rest. It is called MightySkins.

This retailer understands that hoverboards are already a little bulky. So they’ve minimized the bulk that these stickers add while still providing basic scratch protection to keep your board in tip top shape.

Their product, the Self Balancing Board Skin has a variety of designs called “ultra-inks.” That design is then covered with a clear protective layer which gives your board some extra durability. The material is top grade vinyl made with UV resistant color which means you don’t have to worry about fading.

But there is something even better! You know when you have one shot to put something sticky onto a surface and if you screw up, you have to deal with a crooked design forever or at least until it wears off?

Not with a MightySkins sticker. This company uses a patented repositionable and removable adhesive that allows you to quickly install it and remove it with out any goo left behind.

They’ve really answered all your prayers for a hoverboard sticker, am I right?

Here are a few of their most popular, best selling designs available to you:

  • American Flag
  • Blue Flames
  • Basketball
  • Carbon Fiber
  • Backdraft
  • Neon Splatter
  • Drips
  • Green Flames
  • Bright Smoke
  • Alien Invasion
  • Nebula
  • Lightning Storm
  • Solid Hot Pink
  • Baseball
  • Loud Graffiti
  • Light Waves
  • Grey Camo
  • Black Aztec
  • Bio Glow
  • Abstract Black

These are just the beginning. There are hundreds more.

BUY NOW

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR ME?

Whatever your style, MightySkins has it. And with so many options available, and so many changing moods and interests, its a good thing you can switch out each sticker with ease. And it fits most hoverboard models, including but not limited to the Razor Hovertrax, Swagway T1, Powerboard, Sogo, Leray, and Glyro.

You may be wondering the price. Depending on the design you choose, there are different prices, but they start as low as $19.99 on the MightySkins website or $14.99 on Amazon. Not bad, huh? This means you can even start a little collection and not go totally broke doing it.

And for those of you who like purchasing U.S. made products, you can add MightySkins to your list.

Pros: affordable, protective, no mess left behind, made in the U.S., many designs, no fading

Cons: some people complain that the fit isn’t perfect, doesn’t protect from major damage (but doesn’t claim to, either)

Final Thoughts: If you are looking for minor protection and style all in one, MightySkins is perfect and affordable, too.

WHAT ARE OTHER PEOPLE SAYING?

Jimmy G. gives MightySkins a 4 out of 5 stars. He says, “Worth the money. Remember you are only buying a protective vinyl skin. This is not a big ticket item.”

Kristina H. gives it a 5 out of 5 stars. She says, “It clearly says it’s not a case! It is a sticker!”

WHERE CAN I GET ONE?

At the beginning of this article, you came in wondering, “What are hoverboard stickers and where can I get my own?”

I hope you found your answers above, Check this.AMAZON link for a wide variety of stickers.

HAPPY HOVERING!

HOVERBOARD SAFETY GEAR: STAY INJURY FREE AND SAFE

ELECTRIC SCOOTER SAFETY GEAR: 10 PIECES OF EQUIPMENT TO KEEP YOU FREE FROM INJURIES

Why do you need self balancing scooter safety gear? Just watch these videos and you’ll see. Also be sure to visit the Motorcycle Page from the NTSB. (National Transportation Safety Board) They have the complete rundown on what you need to be safe. If you broke your hoverboard and need to fix it, click on that link. Maybe you just need a replacement battery for your hoverboard. Perhaps you’re looking for some scooter accessories, or you want to customize your hoverboard?

Hopefully you’re still able to focus. I know that it is not a fun thing to have to do, but it does work to save lives.

DO YOU KNOW WHAT SAFETY GEAR YOU NEED FOR A HOVERBOARD?

WIth the festive explosions of the New Year, certain states and cities have begun to implement required safety gear for electronic board riders.

From the CHP website in California :

The new law defines “electronically motorized board” as a wheeled device designed to be stood on and powered by electronic propulsion, going no more than 15 miles per hour.

This will include all of the current generation of hoverboards and self balancing electric scooters. (Yes, that means smart balancing boards, balance wheels, adult scooters, kid scooters, and just about any other combination of words that are equivalent.) In addition:

The electronically motorized boards can only be ridden on a highway with a speed limit of 35 miles per hour or less, or specific designated bikeways. The rider must be at least 16 years old and must wear a bicycle helmet.

WHAT YOU HAVE TO WEAR WHILE RIDING A HOVERBOARD

So, if you’re going to ride your hoverboard in public, (at least in California) you can’t do it on a road that has a speed limit of 35 MPH or greater.

I guess that means no cruising the 101 on it. Also, you need to be wearing a helmet. That’s the required safety gear. I’d also recommend
that you consider getting wrist guards, knee pads, and elbow pads to go with your helmet.

SO WHAT SAFETY GEAR SHOULD YOU GET?

HERE’S MY TOP 3 HELMETS TO WEAR WHILE HOVERBOARDING.

BONESHIELDZ BOMBER ADULT HELMET

First up there’s the BONEShieldz helmet for adults. It says high speed, low drag all over, with special air vents and exhaust diffusers.

TRIPLE 8 BRAINSAVER RUBBER HELMET WITH SWEAT-SAVER LINER

The Triple-8 Brain Saver Helmet, Get One

With a price starting at under $50, this is a excellent choice for a hoverboard helmet for kids. It’s seen thousands of riders through countless miles of skating, blading, scootering, biking, and now hoverboarding. It features a special “Sweatsaver” liner to reduce the odors from being worn.

Bonus Tip: If you decide to get this helmet, be aware that it runs a little tight. Your head is probably bigger than you think. (It’s cause of those brains inside, that’s why you’re reading this, right?) Take a measuring tape and starting at the center of your forehead, measure around your head. That measurement will tell you what size helmet you need to get.

  • XS 20.10 in – 20.50 in (51-52cm)
  • S 20.60 in – 21.30 in (52-54cm)
  • M 21.40 in – 22.00 in (54-56cm)
  • L 22.10 in – 22.90 in (56-58cm)
  • XL 23.00 in – 24.00 in (58-60cm)

The next helmet that I have today is:

GIRO SECTION HELMET – MATTE BLACK

The Giro Scooter Helmet

The perfect multi-sport helmet, you’ll be able to use this helmet across several different vehicles and sports. It’s blend of lightweight materials, traditional styling, and superior engineering give a helmet that “you won’t even realize it’s on.”

This helmet is a low profile fit, with a skull hugging grip.

Some of the sports and places people have used it include:

  • Urban commuting
  • Self balancing scooters
  • dirt jumping
  • trail-riding
  • skate parks
  • and many more.

SO YOU’VE PROTECTED YOUR HEAD WHILE RIDING A HOVERBOARD. WHAT’S NEXT?

Next on the list is the suggested smart balance wheel safety gear. That would be the pads and guards. Luckily, the usually come packaged together so you can sometimes get a good set of gear for a reduced price. Don’t forget that you need to get some proper hoverboard accessories, like carrying cases, chargers, and hoverboard skins.

WHY SHOULD I BUY THIS STUFF, I’M NOT GOING TO FALL?

How many of times have you seen a hoverboard video where “Dad” is trying out Jr’s Swagway that he got for Christmas. How many times did “Dad” wipe out? Chances are if you ride on a hoverboard, you’re going to fall. It’s just a limitation of the design. There’s no restraints to hold you in case you:

  • Hit a bump in the road.
  • Misjudge your momentum while trying to turn
  • Have to deal with a pedestrian suddenly getting in your way?

All of those are extremely likely to happen. It’s only a matter of time till it does. But hey, it’s your life, do what you want.

I’ll only say this:

Ask anyone who’s life has been saved by a helmet this question:

“Was the helmet worth how much it cost to buy it ?”

JBM SPORTS PROTECTIVE GEAR SAFETY PAD SET

The Best Safety Pads for riding a hoverboard

The best selling knee pads on Amazon. (There’s a rather tasteful joke that could be made from that) This combo pack provides protection to your knees, elbows, and wrists. All three joints that are most likely to be injured in a sudden fall. Don’t let yourself become a statistic, get the gear and save your body. Chances are, you’ll be glad that you did.

SHOULD I BUY A HOVERBOARD EXTENDED WARRANTY?

UPDATE: Now that hoverboards have once more returned to Amazon and other online shops, let me say this: If you buy a hoverboard off of Amazon and don’t purchase one of these protection plans, you’re just wasting your hard-earned money. Right now, the $400 Electric Scooter Protection Plan for Amazon hoverboards is only a few dollars about $30. That gives you 2 years of protection for any mechanical defects after the 1 year warranty expires. It’s worth it!

Do you have a hoverboard? A hoverboard protection plan from Squaretrade is probably one of the smartest purchases you could make. These
plans give you extra protection for your hoverboard over and beyond what the manufacturer’s warranty covers. Protect your investment after you buy a self
balancing scooter.

FOR EXAMPLE:

If you had a 30 day hoverboard warranty and you purchased one of these protection plans, on day 31 when your factory warranty had expired, you would now
have Squaretrade covering any issues. How cool is that?

THE HOVERBOARD EXTENDED WARRANTY COVERS:

  • 24 hr a day service. Their support staff will be available when you need them.
  • 100% Parts and Labor. You will not have to pay anything to get your self balancing scooter repaired.
  • FREE shipping to the repair center, and there’s also free shipping back to you.
  • With a few hours of you purchasing the extended warranty, you’ll receive an email with all the information about the warranty.
  • You can cancel the protection plan at any time with 30 days of buying and you’ll get your money back.
  • You can give a hoverboard as a gift to someone and give the warranty as a gift. It’s fully transferable.
Buying a hoverboard extended warranty is one of my top recommended items to purchase

One of the best buys that you can make is to get a hoverboard extended warranty from SquareTrade

A protection plan from Squaretrade is worth the low cost.

SOME OF THE FINE PRINT. IT’S FUNNY HOW THERE’S ALWAYS SOME.

The Squaretrade protection plan only covers items bought at Amazon within the last 30 days. That means that you can buy the scooter now, wait 2 weeks and
then pay the bit extra for the protection plan.

The email that you receive after buying is your official purchase confirmation. Don’t lose it.

The protection plan starts after the end of the manufacturer’s warranty. If you call Squaretrade while it is still under their warranty, you will be
directed to the manufacturer.

The plan is only valid for a single item.

HOW TO BUY A SQUARETRADE PROTECTION PLAN? WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE VARIOUS PLANS?

As you might have noticed, Amazon carries several different Squaretrade plans. How can you tell the difference between the various plans? It’s pretty
straightforward. You will need to buy the protection plan that closest matches the sale price of the hoverboard that you buy.

CONFUSED?

If you buy a Swagway X1 hoverboard for $495. You would then need to buy the Squaretrade protection plan for bike/scooters 450.00-499.00. That’s the extended
warranty for a scooter that costs between $450 and $499. If the Swagway went up in price and was $500, that extended warranty for it wouldn’t be valid. You’d
need to buy the extended warranty for a $500-$599 scooter to cover it.

SHOULD I BUY AN EXTENDED WARRANTY FOR MY HOVERBOARD?

I’m the type of person who will often laugh at the sales person who tries to push some over-priced service plan on to me when I make a purchase. HOWEVER,
hoverboards have already had a sketchy history: major retailers pulling them from shelves, airlines banning them, random fires while they’re charging.

A hoverboard is so much fun and costs so much, that the low price for an EXTRA 2 years of protection is worth it. So much so that I’m giving these an
EDITOR’s CHOICE badge and 5/5 star review rating.

THIS SEEMS APPROPRIATE

THE HOVERBOARD PROTECTION PLANS

These are all two years plans. While you could get a plan that is only for a year, the cost is not substantially more to extend the coverage for a year. It
just makes sense.

FINAL THOUGHTS

Hoverboards are so new that there’s no real idea on just how long you can use one before it is no longer usable. Think about that for a second. It might be
that each one falls apart when it hits mile #34. With a Squaretrade extended warranty you will get full coverage and protection for 2 years AFTER the
manufacturer’s warranty. I highly recommend buying one of these plans for your hoverboard.

A REPLACEMENT CIRCUIT BOARD FOR YOUR HOVERBOARD

HOVERBOARD EXPERTS CLEAR PROTECTIVE FILM PARENT

Buy This Item

Here’s a replacement battery for your self balancing scooter. How will you know that you need to replace your battery?

The battery in your hoverboard is just like the battery that you find in your cell phone. Since it is a lithium ion battery, you shouldn’t need to break the battery in, though I would fully charge it before using it for the first time.

What that entails is fully charging it, and then draining it most of the way and recharging it fully again. If you do that, it will help prolong the life of your battery. Other things to do:

  • Charge your battery often
  • Don’t drain your battery empty, this damages lithium-ion batteries.
  • Avoid letting the battery overheat
  • Try to keep the battery from being damaged

The random fires and exploding hoverboards were most likely caused by the batteries overheating or being damaged. They really don’t like that.

Because of some limitations in the Amazon affiliate program, there aren’t any exact prices listed. This is because the price of the item might change between when the article was published and when the item might be purchased. I’m working on finding a better tool so that I can list the actual current prices, but until then, I will assign it one $ for every $20 in price. Something that’s $20 would be $.

Our hoverboards both support up to 264 lbs (though UL cert. is only for up to 220 lbs).  Therefore, although they’re not the greatest of the bunch, it may still be worth adding our boards into the comparison on that page.  Either just a couple call-to-action blurbs or actually include our products in the comparison.  We could stress that “if you weigh less than 264 lbs, these hoverboards from ScooterEra are the some of the sleekest and highest-quality on the market”.

GOLD REPLACEMENT HOVERBOARD SKIN AND FRAME

You can now show off your baller status with this GOLD CHROME shell for your hoverboard. For as innovative as self-balancing scooters have been, inside they are surprisingly simple. That simplicity is why so many of the different brands seem the same. (That, and the fact that all the companies copied and “borrowed” designs from each other) The steps to replace your hoverboard shell are unscrew all the screws (18 of them). Gently remove the outer casing. Watch out; there are wires connected to the piece of shell that you are removing. Once you have the insides exposed, unscrew the screws along the outside edge INSIDE the hoverboard. These are the screws that are holding the top of the hoverboard shell to your frame.

Now you should have the whole shell unscrewed, gently remove it and reverse these steps to install the new casing. Now, you should have a gold shell for your hoverboard. If you’re the DIY type, and you wanted a gold chrome hoverboard, this might be the best option for you. Especially since many of the hoverboard brands charge a premium for a gold hoverboard.

HOVERBOARD SKINS, SHELLS, AND OTHER PROTECTIONS

You just paid all this money to purchase your hoverboard, and then after riding it for the first time, you saw a ton of scratches on the bottom. Don’t worry; you’re not alone. It seems that this happens with EVERY brand of hoverboard. So, how do you fix the scratches along the bottom of your self-balancing scooter? It’s easy…

There are a few products here offering differing levels of protection for your hoverboard. One of the first are these vinyl hoverboard stickers.

VIDEO: APPLYING A VINYL STICKER TO YOUR HOVERBOARD

While this is a different brand of hoverboard sticker than the ones above (It’s sold in the UK), the concept is the same. To apply a hoverboard decal, you just need some alcohol wipes and a hair dryer.

REPLACEMENT BUMPERS

SELF BALANCING SCOOTER BUMPERS

These are the black rubber bumpers that help to protect your hoverboard from scratches and scrapes. The adhesive that glued them down isn’t a very good one, and they tend to get lost while riding. These are very easy to use. Just peel the old one off, gently scrape and remaining adhesive off. Then using an alcohol wipe clean the area where you are going to stick the new bumper. After it dries, stick your new bumper on, Voila!

PROTECTIVE SILICONE CASE FOR HOVERBOARDS

This is a brand new item that I just found online. It makes sense when you think about it. You can now find a silicone protective case for your hoverboard. If you’ve ever gotten a case for your phone, this is the same concept, only scaled up to fit a hoverboard. The case is stretched over the outside of the hoverboard, and small tabs clasp onto the screw holes on the bottom of the hoverboard. One of the neat things about the way that these are designed is that you get two cases. One for the left, and one for the right. Mix and match to find the perfect style for you.

There is a drawback to this case, though. It does only protect the top of the hoverboard. The bottom will still be scratched during use.

REPLACEMENT A/C ADAPTERS

Replacement chargers. I could write a whole post on them, but these are the things to look for.

  1. Look for the CE or UL logos on them. This means that it has passed certification tests that it should operate as expected. THIS IS IMPORTANT! With hoverboards having the problem of randomly catching on fire, you want to limit over-stressing the battery. A UL-certified charger for a hoverboard will do exactly that.
  2. Don’t buy a cheap one. The more expensive versions have better insulation and components, again so that it charges things more safely.

Also, make sure that the charger is rated at the proper voltage and current. For today’s hoverboards with a 158 WH battery, you should have a 42V 2A power adapter. Your battery might also be called a 36 W 4.4 A battery or 36 W 4400 mA. All of these are terms that describe the same battery.

Hoverboard Accessories

THE COOLEST HOVERBOARD ACCESSORIES

These are a few of the coolest scooter accessories and hoverboard safety gear to go with that new hoverboard that Santa brought you this Christmas. Now that hoverboards have been around for a few months there are beginning to be accessories available. Let’s see what I found.

SELF BALANCING SCOOTER ACCESSORIES: A HOVERBOARD CARRYING CASE

A carrying case for your hoverboard is that nice bit of extra care that will extend the life of your scooter immensely. Yes, it protects it from the elements. And yes, it hides it a bit so would-be thieves might not realize that you have something worth taking.

WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN A HOVERBOARD BAG?

Many of the bags and hoverboard carrying cases that you see on places like Amazon and EBay look exactly the same. There’s a few key points that you have to remember while you are shopping for a good carrying case.

  • Make sure that the bag can fit your hoverboard. Pay attention to these two critical measurements: wheel size and board length. The standard wheel sizes: 6.5″, 8″, and 10″. The board length is the how wide your hoverboard is. You can usually find the information online, or just use a tape measure.
  • Look for extra pockets on your bag, this way you can keep your charger and any other hoverboard accessories you might have.
  • The big difference between the $10 hoverboard carrying cases and the $50 cases? The $50 carrying case is fire resistant. In case of a fire the fire-resistant bag would help to contain any flames.

THERE’S THREE BASIC STYLES OF HOVERBOARD BACKPACKS.

These first bags look like they would be perfect for carrying your hoverboard. And they are, except one huge design flaw. I’m jumping ahead of myself. Let’s think of the different reasons that you would be using a bag for your hoverboard instead of riding it.

  1. You’re a regular commuter that uses your hoverboard to go to work each day. But your commute one day is cut short because your battery died.
  2. You’re riding your hoverboard and it starts to shake uncontrollably, you power cycle it and try riding it again. It still wobbles, I hope it’s not broken.
  3. This sucks, the weather report this morning said no rain today. Where did this hurricane come from?
Don't Buy This Self Balancing Bag

Don’t buy this bag. While it’s not a bad bag, there’s a huge flaw.

Any of these situations could happen at any time you’re riding. If it does, you’re stuck having to carry a 25 lb. lead weight with you. Hopefully it’s not very far. That leads me to the epic design flaw in most hoverboard carrying cases:

Check the Prices On Amazon

Make sure your hoverboard bag comes with some type of shoulder strap!

A Shoulder Strap for A Hoverboard Carrying Case

Don’t buy a hoverboard carrying case without these!

The second style of hoverboard bags have attachment points on either end of the bag so that you can attach a shoulder strap to the bag. This makes it much easier to carry for a long distance.

Check the Price On Amazon

The third type of hoverboard bag has backpack style straps. These let you carry it on one or both shoulder like a regular backpack. You’ll be grateful that you spent the $10 extra the first time you have to carry your hoverboard any type of distance.

the hoverboard backpack is the best way to carry a dead hoverboard

A backpack for a hoverboard is the best way to carry a hoverboard

This next bag is probably the best carrying case that you can get for your hoverboard. While it doesn’t have two straps to wear like a backpack, it does have wheels on the bottom. A handy strap allows you to drag the hoverboard behind you. As my girlfriend said, it’s for when your wheels need wheels. This bag is the perfect choice of a bag for people that would have difficulty carrying a 25 lb. object.

PROTECT YOUR HOVERBOARD FROM THEFT

Sometimes you can’t take your smart balance wheel everywhere you want. Now, there’s a solution, with this hoverboard lock that is available on Amazon. It works the same as a bike lock would. Find an immovable object that you can chain your hoverboard to, and lock it down. Go do what you need to, and when you return, your hoverboard will still be there. Pretty cool.

However, if the circumference of the center portion of your Board exceeds 9.5 inches, please order our Keyed Hoverboard Lock, as that model has a 12 inch loop.
Brand: BestBoardLock

BRING OUT THE NATURAL GLOW WITH A PROTECTIVE SKIN

These caught my attention a few weeks ago, and I can’t wait to order one and just play with it. They now make hoverboard or scooter skins.

They are just a small vinyl wrap that anyone can apply to the clean, dry chassis casing. Then your hoverboard goes from being just another one that everyone seems to have to a classy, and unique hoverboard owner, who seems to just ooze sophistication.

YOU’RE PROBABLY GOING TO WANT A REPLACEMENT CHARGER FOR YOUR HOVERBOARD

If you’re anything like me, you’ll probably need a new charger before you even get done reading this article. In my own case, it’s not that I mistreat my charger and it dies an inglorious death.

No, it’s strange shit that happens to me and my adapters.

I’ll be the type that gives my adapter to a fireman to use so that he can make an emergency defibrillator and zap somebody back to life. Or I’d walk unknowingly through a massive street fight between two ninjas clans.

There I would be at the opposite side of the street clothes in tatters, charger sliced to bits with no idea what just happened. Nobody sees ninjas.

Be careful when getting a replacement charger. Those exploding hoverboards you’ve heard about. It was most likely while the boards were charging.

Get a charger that is the proper voltage and then also the right current and plug sizes.

[content-egg module=Amazon template=item]
That’s all the time I have right now to share some scooter accessories with you. I’ll try to have a bunch more listed soon.

That’s all that I have right now for scooter accessories, but I’m always looking out for more parts and accessories. Speaking of parts, if you need replacement parts for your self-balancing scooter, be sure to visit that link. Or if you are having problems with your hoverboard, check out the repairs page for some ideas on how you can fix your hoverboard.

And now that you’re properly accessorized, let’s look at different ways to customize your hoverboard.

Hoverboard Charger

Hoverboards, also known as self-balancing electric scooters, are quickly becoming one of the popular forms of transport for kids and young adults alike. These two-wheeled inventions are now a common sight on sidewalks, in malls, and in most other places too. If the battery on your hoverboard has run out and you’re in need of a charger, nothing but the best will work.

There are many reasons why you might need a new charger or adapter, including moving to a new country with different power supply specifications, or the very simple, time-honored motive– the dog ate your old one. Whatever the reason, these are the ten best hoverboard battery chargers you can buy.

Warning: Always look at the power requirement of your board before you buy a charger – a large power differential could cause your charger to overheat, become a fire hazard, or even wreak havoc on your board’s internal circuitry.

FANCY BUYING 3-PRONG SELF BALANCING SCOOTER CHARGER

This is one of the best chargers you can get for your hoverboard, simply because it is universal. The adapter is made to fit the charging ports of hoverboards from all manufacturers, as long as they are of the 3-pin kind. The adapter comes with a unique perk – a LED indicator is present on the power brick. This light notifies you when charging has been completed, reducing the risk of your hoverboard overcharging or overheating. It has a year’s warranty too, which can be useful in case of any defects you spot while using it. It charges quickly, efficiently, and safely.

BUY IT ON SWAGTRON!

PHONELEX BATTERY CHARGER FOR SCOOTERS

Versatility is one of the prime benefits of the Phonelex charger for your self-balancing scooter. The company ships the charger with a plug that is designed to fit the sockets in your country. For example, the EU version of this adapter and charger has the standard square-pin design for its plug, whereas the US version has the flat plug pin design. It charges faster and better than most hoverboards’ factory default charger. The power brick is equipped with fuses to protect your board from overcharging, overloading, and short-circuiting. The shorter cable length on this unit is probably the only disadvantage in an otherwise great product!

BUY IT ON SWAGTRON!

BAA SHOP TWO WHEELS MINI SMART SELF BALANCING SCOOTER ADAPTER

BAA Shop has outdone itself with the adapter design on this unit. A common issue buyers of these chargers have is their lack of compatibility with certain hoverboard models. This particular adapter is designed to be universally compatible as long as your board has a 3-pin charging port. It features an indicator light that informs you of the charge status – red for charging and green for fully charged. It has a fast charge time and is quite safe to use. Take care not to overcharge with this one, though, as it can overheat if you leave it connected for too long.

BUY IT ON SWAGTRON!

EVAPLUS 42V 2A POWER ADAPTER POWERFAST 3-PRONG INLINE CONNECTOR

You won’t go wrong with the Evaplus Power Adapter for hoverboards and electric scooters. It has an output of 42V, which means that it won’t work with some models of scooters and boards that have a 24V rating. Remember to identify the power requirement of your hoverboard before you buy any chargers! If you have a 42V model, though, this adapter is universally compatible and allows for fast charging on the go if you can find a wall socket. The adapter tends to heat up during charging but is equipped with overheating, overcharging, overloading, and short-circuit protection. It also has a handy indicator light that glows red or green based on the status of the charge.

BUY IT ON SWAGTRON!

UPLUS HOVER BOARD ADAPTER

This is probably one of the best brands and models of hoverboard scooter adapters that you can get. It is compatible with nearly every 42V model of self-balancing scooter on the market right now, including the notoriously hard-to-find Swagtron series. The charger is very light, weighing just over half a pound, and is small enough to be carried in a scooter case without being bumped around. It charges very fast indeed, taking just two hours to fully juice up a standard board. Most people who experience this charger steer clear of their original manufacturer unit going forward. The “no questions asked” return policy ensures your satisfaction when using it.

BUY IT ON SWAGTRON!

TAGALAN LI-ION BATTERY CHARGER

The Tagalan Battery Charger for hoverboards and scooters is a very high-quality piece of equipment that is a must-have in your inventory. It works with any power supply from 100V to 240V, so you can use it when traveling abroad too. The charger is compatible with all 42V hoverboards but also works with 36V models so you won’t need to worry about damaging those boards with this unit. Full lithium ion battery charges are complete within a couple of hours and it is very safe indeed.

BUY IT ON SWAGTRON!

MAXFIND TWO WHEELS MINI SMART SELF BALANCING SCOOTER UL CHARGER

This compact, versatile charger is compatible with all models of hoverboards that have a 3-pin charging port. It is UL certified for safety and quality and is packed with features including a LED light that indicates the charging status when in operation. This device features a self-adjusting IC inside the power brick to adapt to various scooter requirements.

BUY IT ON SWAGTRON!

WYNESS 100-240V 50/60HZ 42V 2A ELECTRIC SCOOTER BATTERY CHARGER

This is one of the safest chargers you can buy. It comes with polarity protection, short-circuit protection, overloading and overcharging protection, and overheating protection. It also has a LED indicator to tell you when your board is done charging. It charges quickly, safely, and efficiently – what more could you want?

BUY IT ON SWAGTRON!

U-GOFORST 42V 2A 3-PRONG INLINE UNIVERSAL LITHIUM BATTERY POWER CHARGER

As chargers go, this device is one of the most adaptable. It has smart adjustment features built into it so that voltages like 12V, 24V, and 36V can be supplied along with the standard 42V for your hoverboard. The only issue with this charger is that it isn’t universally compatible – only models with special connectors can be charged. It is, however, UL certified for safety and is by far one of the most high-quality chargers you can buy.

BUY IT ON SWAGTRON!

So, there you have it: ten awesome hoverboard chargers you can use for your board, regardless of manufacturer or connector type. Always remember to keep an eye on your charger when charging up – the last thing you need is a damaged board. With these ten great chargers and adapters, though, the chances of your charge going awry are negligible!
