How We Rate Kids hoverboards

Kids hoverboard

It is important to us that the placement of the boards in our hoverboard test is understandable. That’s why we list the test criteria below, according to which we evaluate the hoverboards, and briefly explain what they mean.

Kids hoverboard |Technical specifications

In this criterion, we evaluate a Kids hoverboard based on its technical data. In particular, we look at the performance, the wheel diameter and the tire type. In the other characteristics, there are usually no or only minor differences.

When it comes to performance, we rate it according to the higher the better principle. The same applies to the wheel diameter, as boards with larger wheels can overcome obstacles better and have greater riding stability. In terms of tire type, we give preference to pneumatic tires because they offer greater driving comfort than solid rubber tires.

Despite the differences in these three characteristics, the technical data play a rather minor role in our kids hoverboard test. We don’t think the differences in this data are so significant that one board should be rated significantly better than another. In our test, we use the specs to decide if a particular board is better than another if it otherwise matches the other on the other test criteria.

How to calibrate the kids Hoverboard?

All kids 3Hoverboards face this problem, sooner or later we have to re-calibrate , a simple process that has no differences between models. With the power button we are going to carry out a process that will make us avoid unnecessary falls.

Calibrate kids hoverboard

The first thing we will do is place the kids Hoverboard on a completely smooth floor and then hold the power button down for 10 seconds or more, until the light or sound indicates something. Then the calibration will start and we have to wait for it to finish without moving it from the same place.

Kids Hoverboard Test Summary

The kids hoverboards we looked at in our test are all very similar in their specs. Our guess is that the boards all come from the same production facility in the UK, which would explain the same values. The only difference between the models is the wheel diameter, tire type and performance.

There are models with a wheel diameter of 6.5 inches. These include the Robway W1, the Cat 2Droid, and the 600W Motion. These all have solid rubber tires and an output of between 2 x 300 and 2 x 350 watts. The ones with 8-inch tires, the Robway W2 and the 700W Weaver, also have solid rubber and have an output of 2 x 350 watts. There is also the Robway X1. It has slightly wider 8.5-inch tires and an output of 2 x 350 watts. The 10-inch models all have pneumatic tires and an output of 2 x 400 watts. These are the Robway W3 and the 800W Crossover.

The kids hoverboards are in the top three places in our test. We gave it a very good rating in the three categories “Scope of delivery”, “Features” and “Security and battery”. The boards have a generous scope of delivery with remote control and a bag and bring a wealth of features with them, including generous LED lighting and a smartphone app. Most important to us, however, is that these boards do everything to ensure the highest level of safety. This includes a high-quality Samsung battery and CE certification.
