How to Ride a Swegway

FAQs: Are Hoverboards allowed on public roads?

Hoverboards are not road legal. Please refrain from using Swegways on public roads and footpaths. You are free to use in private recreational spaces, parks and fields as well as in the home and garden.

FAQs: My Hoverboard is vibrating. Is it broken?

Not necessarily. Hoverboards often need re-calibrating due to the nature of their gyroscopic technology. Juddering or vibrations either whilst riding or after dismount are usually a sign the board needs a re-calibration. Please give us a call if you’re not sure how to do this on 0113 320 2299.

FAQs: How long does the battery last?

All Hoverboards are fitted with a heavy-duty li-ion battery. Your Hoverboard will last for 1-3 hours of continuous use. This of course depends on a few variable such as weight, gradient, terrain etc. The battery light on the Hoverboard will flash red when the battery has only 10% power left. Once the battery warning light is illuminated red, please dismount, turn the board off and charge.

FAQs: How long does charging take?

Your Hoverboard will be fully charged in 2-3 hours. Please do not charge your Hoverboard for more than 3 hours.

The charger will show red light whilst the battery is charging and will illuminate green once a full charge has been given.

If you plan to store a lithium battery for a period of more than 30 days please ensure a full charge is given prior to storage. Another charge may be required after 30 days.

FAQs: How do I know I am purchasing a genuine product?

Beware of self balance boards with non standard plugs. These are counterfeit items and are not manufactured by certified companies. All genuine Hoverboards from swegway-pro.co.uk come boxed with our hologram stickers, certifications and manuals for authenticity.

All of our genuine Hoverboards come with British Standard plugs which complies with BS 1363 and is marked so on the plug. Furthermore, our boards and components are CE and UL certified. All certification documents, certificated and test reports can be produced upon request.
