Embed code for: Is the T1 from Swagtron the best hoverboard
Select a size
Hoverboards were unsafe just a couple of months ago. Now, we're being told that it's okay they're safe. I review the Swagtron T1 to see whether it really is safe.
Are Hoverboards Safe?

Are Hoverboards Safe? And Is the Swagtron T1 the Best One?
ntil recently it looked like hoverboards were a fad that had disappeared just as quickly as they had appeared.
Everywhere you looked was a news article about how a hoverboard caused this fire or a viral video of someone trying to ride a hoverboard and failing.
Even the CPSC became involved and declared that “
http://www.cpsc.gov/en/About-CPSC/Chairman/Kaye-Biography/Chairman-Kayes-Statements/Statements/Statement-from-US-CPSC-Chairman-Elliot-F-Kaye-on-the-Safety-of-Hoverboards-and-the-Status-of-the-Investigation/all hoverboards were unsafe.”
That declaration seemed to be the last straw for many hoverboard retailers, as they soon removed them from their shelves.
What many people didn’t know is that at the same time that the CPSC was declaring hoverboards unsafe, they released a set of hoverboard safety standards, covering more than 40 different tests.
Now, just a few months later, hoverboards are beginning to make their return to stores. Currently, only a few brands have been able to meet the UL2272 hoverboard safety standards. This review will cover the SwagTron T1 hoverboard. In it, I’ll show you what makes this one of the safest and best hoverboards that you can buy.
A QUick Note
For most people, the Swagtron T1 and the
http://www.scooterera.com/reviews/swagway-x1-hands-free-smart-hoverboard/Swagway X1 look the same.
You’re wondering what’s the difference between Swagway and SwagTron?
Swagway has become Swagtron. Now’s a great time to purchase an Swagway X1, they have lowered the price to about $360, and if you use the coupon code listed a bit farther down in the article you get another $10 off.
As I was saying, the SwagTron T1 vs. the Swagway X1 has a ton of improvements, though most of them you can’t see.
The biggest improvement with the T1 is the new safety features.
NOTABLE UPGRADES INCLUDE:
Bigger, flame-retardant, non-skid grips for the foot pads for a surer grip on them while riding.
Upgraded motor and gearing for better control and downhill performance.
A new battery charge level indicator.
Open wheel wells allow for easier maintenance and wheel rotation.
The new SentryShield aluminum housing protects from fire hazards.
SentryShield also includes the Smart Battery Management system which manages the battery charging cycle.
Most of the electronics are made of non-flammable plastic.
A new silicone coating to protect the circuit boards and connections from water, heat and dust.
Two different user modes: Learning and Standard.
Performance wise the T1 has the about the same specs as the previous generation X1, though the top speed and range are less in the T1.

HOW SAFE IS THIS NEW HOVERBOARD FROM SWAGTRON?
The Swagtron T1 hoverboard is the first hoverboard that actually offers something that clearly sets it apart from the competition.
Several new safety features have been added to the basic hoverboard, making it a MUCH safer device. So safe, it's even one of the first hoverboards that has passed UL 2272 (the hoverboard safety standard)
