Features of the Swagway X1 Hoverboard

Genuine Samsung Battery

The mini-segway scooter uses a genuine Samsung battery that is different compared to what most hoverboards seem to be using. Recent there has been a lot of controversy surrounding self-balancing scooters because manufactures have been using no-name batteries that are prone to catching fire or being defective in other ways. It is easy to avoid these issues by purchasing a Swagway two-wheel hoverboard since the battery in this model is top class.

The battery in this model can be charged in as little as 45 minutes and can allow you to travel up to five or six hours on a single charge. This in comparison to other models allows for shorter charge time and a longer period of time that you can use your board while on the road. In addition, the Swagway stay school while charging unlike other models that tend to heat up during charging. If you are interested in the technical specifications, the battery is 110 Watts. Bottom line, the quality of the battery if one thing you will not have to worry about if you decide to purchase this self-balancing scooter.

Smart Motor

The motor on this model is very impressive and surprising in many ways. The item features two built-in motors, one in each wheel. The motors accelerate the scooter up to speed very quickly, faster than you might imagine. The top speed of the device is 10 miles an hour. To give you a frame of reference, an average person can run about 5 miles per hour. You will be able to get around on your errands faster, with less effort, and in a much more fun way.

The design of the motor is very intelligent. For example, when you are going downhill on the scooter, you will not accelerate too fast. The on board computers communicate with the motors to monitor your speed and keep your speed from getting too high. This feature keeps the device safe.

The performance of the motors also allows the scooter to go up varying terrains and steep hills without the rider having to get off the hands-free Segway. The Swagway is rated to be able to climb inclines of up to 15 degrees. The electric balancing scooter will slow down when going up the hill because of the extra energy needed but you will not have to step off.

Great Performance on Different Riding Surfaces

The self-balancing scooter is equipped with 6.5-inch wheels that do a decent job of getting you over almost any surface. The wheels are covered with a hard rubber surface with deep treads. The tire on the wheel does not contain any air and will not be punctured or damaged by sharp objects.

The hands-free smart board rides best over hardwood indoor surfaces and on asphalt. In addition, the device will be able to be used over carpet or even short grass. The design of this electric scooter does not allow you to use it off the road. We do not recommend that you use it on the rocky or muddy terrain. Tall curbs also pose a challenge to the Swagway.

The main thing to keep in mind when riding the balance scooter is to stay relaxed and keep a good posture. The footrests in the device are pressure sensitive and respond to changes in pressure. It is best not to try and force the device to do anything. As you learn to use your new personal transportation device, it will become apparent that the on board computers are very intuitive and will do exactly what you wish.

Body and Design

The electric balancing scooter weighs approximately 29 pounds. Most people will be able to carry it around from place to place with one hand. Children may need some assistance picking it up, but you will not be needing to do this very often as the scooter is meant to be ridden and not carried.

The two wheel self-balancing scooter is available in seven unique colors that are sure to please any stylistic preference. Whether you want to stand out with a gloss gold color exterior or stay classic with a black design, the Swagway has got you covered. All the different colors are available at the same price point.

The scooter is equipped with front facing LED lights that make sure you can see where you are going at night. In addition, the LED lights can pulse and blink at different times to give a very cool appearance. LEDs are also present on the top of the device but their purpose is quite different. These lights indicate whether the device is powered up and informs you if the battery needs recharging.

Our Verdict

In the past we have reviewed many different brands of hoverboards. We have seen the best of the best and the not so good. This particular model of self-balancing scooter offers great value for the price. It offers great reliability, a high top speed, fast acceleration, and a safe battery at a great price point.

The bottom line is that Swagway X1 Hoverboard offers better quality compared to other scooters manufactured in China. The US-based brand is manufactured with a fast charging and safe battery that does not have the same safety concerns associated with other no name brands. In our opinion, the Hands-free Smart Board is one of the best choices for consumers.
