  1. Use the correct charger: Make sure to use the charger that came with your hoverboard, as using the wrong charger can damage the battery or the wiring within your hoverboard. 

  2. Charge the hoverboard before it is completely drained: It is best to charge the hoverboard before the battery is completely drained, as this can help extend the life of the battery. Optimal battery life is achieved when you keep it charged between 20-90%. 

  3. Don't overcharge the hoverboard: It is important not to leave the hoverboard charging for too long, as this can damage the battery. Our hoverboards have overcharge protection that will stop the charging process after a certain amount of time. However, it is still recommended that you only charge your hoverboard for its required recharge time. 

  4. Charge the hoverboard in a safe location: Be sure to charge the hoverboard in a safe, dry location away from flammable materials and water.

  5. Use a surge protector: It is recommended to use a surge protector when charging your hoverboard to protect it from power surges or voltage spikes.

By following these tips, you can help ensure that your hoverboard stays charged and in good working condition.
