When buying a new hoverboard, you naturally have lots of questions, like “How much should I spend?”. This depends on a number of factors, but don’t worry, we have taken all of the guesswork out of it for you.
Price a Hoverboard For Your Needs
A better question might be, “What is the best price for a hoverboard that fits my needs?” Obviously, you’ll pay extra for a model that has all of the bells and whistles, but if you don’t need all of them, you are paying too much. So you want to find one that suits your needs.
A good hoverboard will be in the $100 to $700 range. Our advice is to spend between $300 and $600. Gadgetreview found this to be the best price range for models that give you the best battery life, short charge times, long range and a good maximum top speed.
Don’t waste your time on anything below that price range since you won’t get any decent options and don’t go above it because you’ll get the same great features, without all of the extra stuff you won’t use.
Look for the best combination of a powerful motor, large capacity battery, long range, and speed. Some other considerations for the price include, LED headlights, speakers, and smartphone apps, to name a few. The more features it has, the more your hoverboard will cost, but like I said, this price point range will get you all of these features. Less at the low end and more at the high end.
For $100 to $200 you’ll get a more basic hoverboard that’s designed for new and veteran riders, but it won’t be anything to write home about. You won’t find many extra features here and specs like speed, range, and the battery will leave a lot to be desired.
$200-$500 Will Get You What You Want
The $200 to $500 range is golden. Here you’ll get more features like apps, Bluetooth, LED headlights and more. You’ll also get a more durable hoverboard that goes faster, charges quicker and is a lot more fun.
Our thought is that only experienced riders need to spend $500 or more for a good hoverboard. You’ll get the best of the best. The fastest speeds, the best durability and all the extras that manufacturers offer. This is more than most of us need, but longtime riders will enjoy the extra options.
