Hoverboards

Hoverboards

The short history of the toy known as the hoverboard has seen a lot of ups and downs. Initially, the hoverboards were hot social-media darlings with countless celebrities riding on them. Then, some hoverboards literally burned to the ground (along with, in some instances, the houses they were in). As a result, the supply chain was basically cut off in early 2016. Now some types are available again, thanks to certifications designed to ensure that they are safer than before. We researched these self-balancing, two-wheeled scooters for more than 15 hours and rode and tested five for more than 25 hours. If you’re going to buy a hover board, the SwagTron T1 is the best option. It’s the most affordable UL-certified hover board available (an important safety distinction that juxtaposes itself against most of the other brands), and it is as easy to ride as any other self-balancing scooter we have riden.

The SwagTron T1 looks a lot like the Swagway, our previous top model, but it has been tested and certified by UL. This means that the electrical drive, battery, and charging option have been deemed safe. After frequent reports of fires and other battery-related issues, this is an important distinction and a requirement for our consideration. Of the 27 hoverboards that are currently certified, the SwagTron T1 is one of only a handful that can be easily found and purchased in the United States, and it’s also the most affordable.
