Reset Hoverboard

1- How to reset your Hoverboard

This procedure is quite normal, such as adjusting the brakes or greasing the chain of a bicycle. The frequency will depend on the use of the Hoverboard and may need to be done before first use. As soon as the footrests are no longer horizontal or you have trouble controlling it, it's time to recalibrate the gyroscopes of the Hoverboard. 

**Do NOT apply pressure to the foot pads while performing any of these steps, as doing so will damage the gyro sensor boards and will NOT be covered under warranty.

  1. Turn off the Hoverboard;
  2. Place the Hoverboard footrests parallel to the ground;
  3. Press and hold the start button for 10 seconds;
  4. Turn off and restart the Hoverboard;
  5. Go have fun.

NOTE: You may have to repeat the above process multiple times in order to fully reset and calibrate your Hoverboard. For example, you may have to go through the process 3 times in a row before the calibration fully takes effect.

2- When to recharge your Hoverboard

  • Before first use, you have to do a full charge (until the light on the charger turns green)
  • At least once a month, even in winter, even when you're not using it and even if the load takes only 10 minutes.
  • When you hear the audible alert and the Hoverboard battery indicator turns yellow or red (depending on the model), it’s time to charge it.
  • For the health of the battery, it should never be allowed to discharge completely, so it is best to charge it before periods where the Hoverboard will not be used.

3- How to recharge your Hoverboard

  1. Turn off the Hoverboard;
  2. Plug the charger wire into the wall outlet;
  3. Check that the indicator light on the charger is green;
  4. Plug the charger wire into the Hoverboard;
  5. Check that the indicator light on the charger is red;
  6. Unplug the Hoverboard once the light on the charger turns green again.

4- How to ride the Hoverboard

Nobody learns to ride a bike, ski or skateboard by reading an instruction manual. It's the same for the Hoverboard. If you know someone who already does, ask for advice. Otherwise, go watch videos on Youtube, there are thousands. Our only advice, choose a clear space, put some protections and hold someone or something at the beginning. Usually it is learned quickly.
