In this review of the Skque I1 hoverboard, we’ll look at the pros and cons of this self-balancing scooter.
Pros of the Skque I1
The Skque I1 self balancing scooter is out with a improved UL 2272 certification. This Underwriters Laboratory standard means this hoverboard’s battery won’t heat up to the point your hoverboard catches fire. That was a problem with the first generation of hoverboards, though not specifically for Skque.
This new and improved hoverboard model offers even better automatic balancing than the first generation.
The upper load this self balancing scooter can support is 264 pounds; some of its rivals max out at 220 pounds.
It has a fast charging time of one to two hours. The hoverboard comes with a wall charger.
The original version of this hoverboard costs around $300. If you buy the upgraded version with Bluetooth, you’re paying around $400 for the unit. The Skque I1 with both Bluetooth and LED lights costs over $400 on sale and even more if it is not being discounted. One of the benefits of the Skque hoverboard is that it is still one of the cheapest hoverboards compared to many of its rivals.
The two independently moving wheels give it a zero turning radius and significant maneuverability.
This hoverboard is easy to use, since it has a smooth ride. It also accelerates smoothly and slows without tipping you over.
Cons of the Skque I1
Its top speed is 10 kilometers or 6.2 miles per hour; many rivals can sustain 8 miles per hour, though you have to pay up to a thousand dollars to get a scooter that can maintain ten miles per hour.
The six and a half inch diameter wheels are the right size for riding around the house or on sidewalks; don’t take this unit “off road” or even “off the pavement”.
While the Skque I1 hoverboard comes in a variety of colors, not all colors are available in the more expensive versions. Its standard sized pads allow you to affix any designs you’d like.
It has a range of eleven to fifteen miles per hour. The more hills and tricks you take it on, the shorter the range.
Since this hoverboard is made in the United States, the limited warranty comes with actual service; the manufacturer’s warranty covers parts and labor. One caveat, though, is that return policies depend on where you buy the scooter. For example, you may have to return a never-working brand new scooter to the website you bought it within thirty days in order to get a refund, regardless of the manufacturer’s one year warranty for parts and labor. The manufacturer will replace batteries that never hold a charge. They will not cover wear and tear under the warranty. If the manufacturer says it was defective, they’ll pay for shipping costs you paid to send it to them; if they say it is fine or the damage due to wear and tear, the customer is on the hook for the shipping costs.
At thirty pounds, it is heavy to try to carry around in your arms, but it fits many different brands of “hoverboard” carry bags.
The Skque I1 hoverboard is an easy to use, long lasting and safe self balancing scooter. The most expensive version of the Skque is still cheaper than many of its rivals on sale.
