A self-balancing electric scooter, the Hoverboard takes its inspiration from one of the highest-grossing trilogies of the ’80s, Back to the Future. Michael J. Fox plays the character of Marty who uses a fictional levitating skateboard without wheels after travelling to the year 2015 to save his future kids from perils.
Coincidently, 2015 was the year the actual hoverboards were made available to the public, though the testing started in 2013. Ever since then, multiple companies have manufactured their versions of the hoverboard. While the hoverboards don’t actually hover, the rides are pure fun and a great way of entertaining yourself.
Many celebrities like Chris Brown, Wiz Khalifa and Justin Bieber have further popularized this smart personal transporter. Manufacturers such as SwagTron, Segway and Halo Rover are the most popular hoverboard brands. Many Chinese companies are also producing good quality hoverboards.
The hoverboard found its way in Pakistan too and its craze swept the entire country. A plethora of fun videos of people riding this device started making rounds on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

With gadgets like these, always ensure safety first. Look for a device that has UL certification label on itself and its batteries. Recommend batteries are between 36V to 42V. Every hoverboard has a weight limit of 220 lbs. If you weigh more than that, then opt for the bigger variety that accommodates weights between 380lbs to 400 lbs.
The tires of the hoverboard should be around 6.5 inches for kids and adults can go for bigger ones. Opt for the tubeless tire variety for maximum benefit. While purchasing a hoverboard, take in consideration its motor too as the latest ones come with 400w dual motor, equalling up to 800 in total motor capacity which is amazing.
