    Was a nice toy

    I got this for my son as a Christmas gift. It worked well for 2 months (4 charges). We just tried to get to charge and it seemed to charge but will not run once we unplugged it. >< Huge let down for my son and I (almost $500 total cost). If you want to take a chance and buy one of these get the replacement warranty from Best Buy. We just reordered an other one because I also bought the go cart attachment which would have been an $80 dollar throw away item with out the hoverboard. Best Buy charged me an extra $83 bucks for a new warranty. This turned out to be an expensive gift >< now its up to around $580 bucks and it's not even been used more than 4 times ><. I'm hoping the next one last a lot longer before crapping out. No repair shops in Hawaii so they had to refund my purchase / and only Best Buy can bring it in because of the restrictions on lith batteries on planes / I couldn't even send it in for the manufactures warranty. ><

    Battery life is horrible...

    I purchased 2 of these for my 14yr old twins (along with the seat attachment to make it more like a go-kart). My twins are 95lbs at most so there is no real reason why the battery for both of them only lasts for 10-15 minutes. I made sure they were fully charged both times they took them out to ride, but soon after going outside, they were coming back in because the batteries had died. The specifications state that the battery should last long enough for an 8 mile ride. My kids can barely ride around our cul-de-sac before the battery dies. I'm definitely returning them for a different brand.

    I bought this for my daughter for Christmas and after 2 days a red light came on one of the pedals and it stopped working. She never even took it out of the house. After trouble shooting and trying to recalibrate the balance I gave up and exchanged it only to have the same exact problem with the second one. I returned the second one and decided it was time to try a different brand.

    Works fine, not uniquely special, though.

    I've had a few other hoverboards. This is one of the bigger more trusted brands. I like it. And most brands use the same type of plug as this, so I can mix the chargers around. That's nice. The life of the battery is what I expected. I didn't download the app so the lights do their own thing. I don't care about that, since this board is for the rest of my family, I use my own more heavy-duty board.

    We had to exchange it for a new one because the first one was defective, but Santa hooked us up with Best Buy Customer service and a new one was delivered in under a week. My son loves his hover board. It rides smoothly and is quiet enough that I let him ride inside. Thank you to the gentleman who assisted in the exchange. It was a pleasant customer service experience.

    Poor Quality Control

    One drive didn't work right out of the box. Also wouldn't hold a charge. My guess is that it had been returned to Best Buy once for these problems, and Best Buy just restocked it without verifying it's functionability, but I guess we'll never know. Bottom line is we had an extraordinarily disappointed birthday girl. I expect better from Best Buy, and shame on you Swagtron.

    Great Quality Hoverboard

    This Hoverboard seems to be good quality. My 6 year old son picked it up really quick and can ride it very easily. It is pretty heavy which is good. It has the power button and the charging port on one side. The charging cord has lights to let you know when it is charged. It is supposed to run 7.5MPH which is pretty fast when you're riding it.

    This hover board works great, battery lasts long, and the charging time is not as long as the competition. Great buy if you want your kid to be a little more active or out of the house , away from smart devices ( tablets,computers, phones etc.) My daughter was able to go on her own in less than 15 min.

    This hover board works real good and even has a setting for learning mode. I highly recommend this hover board. The music works good also but the only negative is that its not loud enough for my liking, but that's because I like really loud music. It charges quickly and works for a while.

    The swagtron is amazing! My son is 7 years old and loves it! We’re able to control the speed through a mobile app as well as play music connected through Bluetooth. He is learning more and more each time he rides I would definitely recommend this for younger children/beginners!

    This is a powerful scooter. The best one for beginners cause you can adjust the speed acceleration and steering response so it’s easy to learn. Also you can put an attachment on it and your kids will love it.

    App is horrible

    The app is completely useless for the T588. Tried 3 different phones, and couldn't properly connect to the board. It is by far the worst app I have ever tried to use. I would rate it a 0 based on the app. The board itself is pretty nice and appears to have pretty decent quality.

    I had purchased this hoverboard as a gift for my 7 year old son who is an inexperienced rider. It was quick and easy for him to learn. The adjustable settings allowed for comfortable practice and ease into becoming an experienced rider!

    I bought this for my son for Christmas. He loves it and rides it all the time. It was super easy to learn to balance and ride and maneuvers very easily. My son rides from room to room and this hoverboard has replaced his feet.

    My girlfriend loves it! Music plays decently via Bluetooth. It can take a few minutes to get used to balancing if you’ve never ridden a Hoverboard, but you can adjust the settings for a more beginner mode. Lots of fun!

    My 12 year old great niece asked for a hover board for her birthday. With great grades and a fantastic attitude. It was a great surprise! She mastered it that day and she loves it.

    It was easy for kids to ride and learn. However as an adult, it was very difficult. As soon as my 212 lb stepped on, it was off. Hard for the ones near weight limit. The lights are great. Wod recommend!

    I bought this for my son for Christmas and wish that I would of bought myself one as well. We both love riding it, it is made with high quality material and can hold a substantial amount of weight.

    Battery Doesn’t Last

    I bought this thinking it would be a cool toy to use around the house for the family. Only to use it a couple times and the battery lasting about 10-15 minutes per full charge. Was very disappointed.
