Behind the scenes, we’ve had some great fun playing with our latest hoverboard acquisition – My Color Smart by HoverTech.
It is a mini hoverboard that flaunts itself as being a well-constructed, durable and fun hoverboard. We’ll see about that! It went through some extraordinary abuse from our part for almost 2 weeks straight, but no harm is done. It’s all for a good cause.
Today we are ready to share our experience of using this hoverboard with you.
The hoverboard looked solid and well-constructed indeed. HoverTech was not lying. We lifted it, and it was as heavy. No squeaking sounds, no rattling. It had a premium feel as well. We were amazed at how good it felt in our hands. Although it is supposed to be under our feet, it speaks loudly in favor of the build quality, both inside and out.
It has a sharp look. It does not look cheap. Considering its price, it exceeded our expectations in terms of real-life looks. It’s a handsome hoverboard, really.
It’s a mini hoverboard. It’s rather on the smallish side with 26 inches from end to end. But still big enough for a medium to small size adult.
Features of My Color Smart Hoverboard
Construction: This hoverboard has exceptional build quality for its price. It’s well put together. This initially struck us, but it carried on to be a solid all-rounder throughout our 2 weeks testing period. It didn’t stop feeling solid at any point in time.
Battery & Charger: Under the hood is a reliable and heavy-duty 36V (4400mAh) Samsung core battery that is US safety certified. It lasted a little shy of 6 hours for the first day we started testing it. The manufacturer claims 11 miles on a single charge. We believe them. The 2Ma charger power supply is Hoverboard CE Certified, so you can rest assured that it will not blow in your face.
Speed: We got an impressive 10km/h top speed. This is for a medium-sized adult of 122 pounds. It won’t break any speed record but it’s still significantly faster than jogging speed. What we liked about it is that it breezed its way through almost any kind of floor. We used it only flat ground, as is advisable with any Hoverboard.
Silent: Some hoverboards are known to be annoyingly noisy. This is not one of them. It’s a silent hoverboard. The sound of the motor is nearly soothing to the ears.
Self-Balance: Learn forward or backward, and the My Color Smart Hoverboard adapts and compensates to keep you in balance. It has a sensitive foot sensor that communicates with the motor in milliseconds. This makes it a newbie-friendly hoverboard and minimizes the risk of you losing balance and falling off. Apprehensive users learning how to ride a hoverboard will find this feature right up their alley.
LED: The two led strips at the bottom provide adequate lighting and visual feedback to the user. At night, you will clearly see your path. They switch from a nice magenta to a cold white color. Below is a summing up of this hoverboard.
