Different Kind Of Hoverboard Quality
Hoverboard buying guide
A lot of people asked us what the differents are between the quality of the hoverboard. The design of all hoverboards look the same but the inside is different. We set up an checklist with the different kinds of quality.
The follow 3 checkpoints are the most important
1) The Motherboardsystem
2) The Lithium-ion battery
3) The Wheels
4) The Charger
Below we discuss for each part the checkpoints:
1) The motherboardsystem
The motherboardsystem is the computer of the hoverboard, it is the most important part of the hoverboard. The motherboardsystem exists of 1x motherboard and 2x sensorboard. The sensorboards are below the rubber pads where your feets stands on.
There are 3 different kind of quality hoverboards:
1. Hoverboard with Taotao motherboardsystem (best quality)
2. Hoverboard with replica motherboardsystem (low quality)
3. Hoverboard without motherboardsystem and only the sensorboards (very bad quality)
The best quality is of the brand Taotao. Taotao is the original manufacturer of the motherboard, sensorboards, ledlights and indicator lights for the hoverboard. Taotao is the best quality available for the hoverboard. You can recognize Taotao by their green color, serial number and logo in shape of an "V", please see the pictures.
Some Chinese factories tried to copy the Taotao motherboardsystem but failed. The Chinese replica motherboardsystems are of low quality and break down quick. You can recognize the Chinese replica motherboardsystems by their blue, red or yellow color and they don't have any logo or serial number, please check the picture below.
There are also hoverboards without motherboard, this kind is of very bad quality. Some factories save on the quality of parts to offer an lower price. The hoverboards without motherboard have only 2x sensorboard and the balance of this board don't works good because of the missing motherboard.
How do i recognize the difference between an motherboardsystem of Taotao, an replica and witout motherboard?
You can recognize the original Taotao motherboardsystem by their green color, serial number and logo in shape of an "V", please see the picture below. You can recognize the Chinese replica motherboardsystems by their blue or red color and no logo or serial number, please check the picture below. The hoverboards without motherboard don't have the motherboard, please check the picture below.
Notice: Make sure that you buy an hoverboad with the original Taotao motherboardsystem.
2) The lithium-ion battery
There is also different quality for the lithium-ion battery of the hoverboard. There are lithuim-ion batteries with 10pcs cells and 20pcs cells. The 20pcs cells have more capacity so the range per charge is twice as much when compare to an battery with 10pcs cells, please see the picture below. There are lithium-ion batteries of Samsung, LG and Chinese brand. The quality of Samsung and LG batteries is much better than the no brand Chinese batteries.
Notice: Make sure you buy an hoverboard with Samsung or LG battery with 20pcs cells.
3) The wheels
There are wheels with 350W and 250W power for each wiel. Hoverboards with the 350W wheel have total 700W power and the 250W wheel have total 500W power. The 350W has more power so you can speed up faster and climbing is more easier. The difference between the 350W and 250W is huge. The 250W is very weak while driving and drives slow when you compare the 250W with the 350W.
Notice: Make sure you buy an hoverboard with 350W each wheel (total 700W).
4) The charger
There are different quality hoverboard chargers on the market. The good quality hoverboard chargers have a built-in stop function which means that the charger stops giving power when the battery is fully charged. When a charger don't stop with giving power when the battery is fully charged it can cause fire. The good quality chargers also have a UL certification. This is a certification from the test institute called UL. This company test products on safety and when a product is safe they will give it the UL certification. Bad quality hoverboard chargers don't have a built-in stop function and no UL certification. These kind of chargers are dangerous to use.
Notice: Make sure you buy an hoverboard included a charger with built-in stop function and UL certification.
