At the time of reviewing this hoverboard, the Swagtron T1 model is available in five colors (black, white, gold, pink, dark red, or blue). The Swagtron hoverboard is UL 2271 and UL 2272 listed! As far as we know it is one of the FIRST hoverboard to be UL 2271 listed Sentry Shield. It runs via a top-quality lithium battery with Sentry Shield.
The Swagtron T1 design features a hard ABS outer body casing, non-slip foot pads, and 2 aluminum wheels with rubber tires. The self-balancing scooter’s size is 23in W x 7in D x 4in H and weighs 22lbs. Power ranges between 100-240 volts. Charge it after going 7-12 miles.
Features include LED lights, climbing ability for up to 30-degrees, and a 0-degree turning radius. As for speed, 2-8mph is what you can expect from the two-wheel hoverboard. Charging takes about an hour. Included with the Swagtron T1 is the board, AC charging adapter, user’s manual, and paperwork.
The Swagtron hoverboard is also FCC and CE certified. In our review opinion, we think it is one of the best hoverboard in terms of safety.
Who is the Swagtron Hoverboard Ideal for?
In conducting our Swagtron review, we noted that the T1 model is perfect for teens and adults alike, provided they weigh between the minimum weight limit (44lbs) and maximum weight limit (220lbs). You do not need to have had any experience on a hoverboard before; the Swagtron has a Learning Mode that you simply turn on to get used to its features.
The Swagtron T1 will also appeal to you if you want eco-friendly transportation. For short journeys, simply ride your hoverboard, which is more energy efficient than hybrid cars and petrol scooters. Plus, the hoverboard is a fun way to travel with its LED headlights, climbing ability, and smooth ride.
Swagtron Hoverboard Review – Pros & Cons of the Swagtron T1
The T1 and the T3 Swagtron hoverboards come from the famous Swagway, a company well-recognized globally for offering quality self-balancing scooters. The hoverboard industry has cleaned up its act since the previous issues with components of the boards catching fire or exploding. In particular, the Swagtron has a UL 2271 listing for its Sentry Shield battery and is one of the first hoverboards in the world to release to market as UL 2272 listed! Safety is a major advantage here. You have the peace of mind that the company provides proof that the Swagtron is safety certified, thanks to the UL listing for its battery/charger systems. The Sentry Shield technology provides an extra safety guard for the battery. Also, the board has a strong casing that is flame retardant, is anchored by durable wheels, and has non-slip foot pads to help keep users safe.
We also like the safety Learning Mode, which enables users to enjoy slower rides that let them practice their riding skills. Users can gradually work themselves up to higher speeds. Plus, the Swagtron T1 is lighter than the original Swagway, by about 4lbs. This alteration makes for an easy-to-carry board on the go.
All of these safety features improve the ride quality, as does its ability to go up hills, which hoverboard reviews reveal that not all scooters can do. It has tight turning too. And, the price is reasonable.
Cons – Swagtron Hoverboard Reviews – Swagtron T1 vs. T3
The T1 lacks some of the T3 Swagway hoverboard features. The Swagtron T3 is considered a Bluetooth hoverboard. For example, the Swagtron T3 has a Bluetooth speaker and 3 riding modes (learning, standard, and advanced), while the Swagtron T1 has only two modes (learning and standard user). Also, the T3 app, unlike the T1, enables you to use your smartphone to check your hoverboard’s battery level, control its speed, access videos, and reach out to customer service.Also, the Swagtron T1 has an 8mph maximumspeed, so you want to make sure this speed works for you.
Swagtron Hoverboard Review – Are There Special Features?
Our Swagtron review has to include mention of the safe stop technology. This new tech is hardware and software controlled. It has no more hard stopping like with the former Swagway, which used to increase risks of falls. Instead, stops are gradual and smooth.
