Which Hoverboard Brands Are Safe To Buy?
With all of the news of these hoverboard fires lately, we’ve been receiving a ton of questions from people asking if the hoverboard brand they’re thinking about buying is a product of good quality. Everyone is concerned that the brand they’re looking into might become the next national news story of a hoverboard explosion, and we totally understand that concern.
Because there are so many hoverboard brands on the market, it’s hard to weed out the good stuff from the bad stuff – but we’re about to make that a whole lot easier for you. We want to help in any way that we can to make sure you’re purchasing a high-quality hoverboard that’s not going to catch fire.
In our previous post Where To Buy A Hoverboard, we explained how nearly 90% of hoverboard brands are just generic products being pumped out of factories in China that care more about quantity than quality, which means that there are a ton of hoverboards being sold across the internet that have low-quality parts, non-certified batteries, and faulty plugs that have a much higher potential of catching fire.
To make things easier for you, we’ve put together a list of hoverboard brands that we’ve personally verified as high-quality, safe products. After going through over 100 brands, only 7 met our high personal standards. The brands in our Approved list all make a great product, offer generous warranties, and have certified batteries (which means you probably won’t ever see one of these boards catch fire!).

With this master list, there’s no more guessing. If a brand you’re considering buying is not on our Approved list, we suggest you be very cautious with your purchase. It could be part of the vast majority of generic products that both we and the news warns about.
We update the list as we find new brands that meet our verification standards, and we do our best to give you our honest judgement. If you think we’ve made a mistake or you’re curious about another brand that we haven’t listed, simply comment below or shoot us an email and we will get back to you with our analysis.
