Here's what you already know:
  1. Hoverboards exist.

  2. There are a TON of articles that give you advice on which one to choose.
Here's what you might not know:
  1. Exploding hoverboards? That's a thing of the past. New, stricter safety regulations (known as a UL2272 certification) have kept hoverboard customers from being unwittingly engulfed in flames. Hooray!

  2. Just as there are a ton of articles about which hoverboards are the best, there's also a lot of overlap.

And that's why we've taken the liberty of looking through these articles, so we can cut through the noise and give you the brands that are mentioned over, and over, and over, and over again.

Note: All the boards listed here are UL2272 certified, meaning you can ride them without fear of explosions. All hoverboard images are screenshots from their associated Amazon pages.

The 7 Hoverboards The Internet Can't Stop Recommending (In No Particular Order)

1. Hoverzon S Self Balancing Hoverboard

Hoverzon S Self Balancing Hoverboard

The Hoverboard S Self Balancing Board will run you $399. That gets you a battery that takes 3 hours to fully charge, lasts 4 hours, and reaches a top speed of 8mph. You've also got two speed settings, so beginners can start out easy and slow. Plus, they'll throw in a 1-year warranty. Sweet!

 

2. PowerOnBoard Powerboard 15005

PowerOnBoard Powerboard 15005

At a top speed of 6.2mph, the PowerOnBoard Powerboard is comparatively slower, but similarly priced around $349.99. With its large battery pack, you'll get about 3 hours of usage time between charges.

 

3. Swagtron T1

The Swagtron T1 ALSO costs $349.99, but reaches a top speed of 8mph (like the Hoverboard S Self-Balancing Board), has a 3 hour battery life, AND has LED headlights.

 

4. Razor Hovertrax 2.0 Hoverboard

Razor Hovertrax 2.0 Hoverboard

Like the last two items on the list, the Razor Hovertrax 2.0 costs $348. Like the Swagtron T1, its top speed is just over 8mph. It's quick-charging, and recommended for beginners, but its battery life only lasts 1-2 hours.

 

5. Segway miniPRO

Segway miniPRO

Who doesn't want a mini Segway? The Segway miniPRO blows the other hoverboards out of the water in top speed (10mph!) AND price ($599!). You'll have to decide for yourself if the padded knee bar, anti-theft alarm, customizable lights, and Bluetooth capability are enough added features to make the steep price increase worth it. Also, the battery life lasts about 1.4 hours.

 

6. EPIKGO, Self Balancing Scooter

EPIKGO, Self Balancing Scooter

Also clocking in at $599 and 10mph is the EPIKGO, whose 1 hour battery life is not nearly as appealing as its all-terrain wheels.

 

7. Swagtron T3

Swagtron T3

Finally, we have the Swagtron T3. Like the T1, it reaches top speeds of 8mph and has a 3 hour battery life. However, this model comes with Bluetooth capability, which likely accounts for the price increase to $459.17.
