For most hoverboards, you’ll need to remove the battery in order to recharge it. Thankfully, it’s pretty easy to do! If you don’t have access to your hoverboard’s charging port and power switch, this article will show you how to remove the battery safely and effectively so that you can charge it away from the board!
When I got a new hoverboard, it was necessary after some time to reset the battery. The battery must be charged after some time of use and regularly. Go through the completer article.
Disclaimer: Remove the battery at your own risk; if done incorrectly, damage may occur to your hoverboard or injury may occur to yourself or others around you. Only follow these instructions if you are knowledgeable about electronics and how they work!
Charge your board fully
Make sure your board is fully charged, sometimes when we plug in our boards they will not charge all of their batteries. To check if your board is charging all of its batteries, plug it in and it should have a green light on all four sides (or red if you are charging).
If there is only one green light or no lights at all then that means that there is a problem with one of your batteries. Try unplugging and plugging back in again to see if that fixes it.
If not please call customer service as your board might need servicing. If you do find that one or more of your batteries are dead then make sure you contact us for replacement parts
Turn off your board by pressing the power button for 10 seconds
Just like your cell phone, you can turn off your board by holding down on your power button for 10 seconds.
Make sure that all lights on your board are off before performing a hard reset. Please note that power and speed will remain turned off for approximately 10 minutes.
During that time you will not be able to ride and will not be able to turn back on. After about 10 minutes, the power and speed should come back up again.
This is a perfect way to recharge if you don’t have access to an outlet in order to charge from empty (in most cases).
Just make sure that your board has a full charge before beginning or after performing any of these steps otherwise it won’t respond!
Leave it alone for an hour
Sometimes, in spite of everything we do, a hoverboard just won’t power on. I find that leaving it alone for at least an hour gives us a good chance at success.
If you’re having trouble getting your board started and it’s been a while since your last ride, try letting it sit for a while and see if that does anything to help things along.
You can also make sure your board is plugged into its charger for about 20 minutes before trying to get things going again; sometimes we need a little help from our chargers. If you still aren’t having any luck after giving it time and charging up—you might have a dead battery!
Turn on the board
Make sure your board is turned on by clicking a few buttons. If there is a Mode button, then you’ll have to click it several times until it changes from FAST or whatever mode it’s in currently and back to START.
If there isn’t a Mode button, press any two buttons simultaneously until they both light up. Then release them after they’ve turned on. Your board should now be ready for use. Remember that some boards will not turn on unless they’re fully charged!
If you are experiencing any of these problems, then your batteries may need a recharge. As indicated above, you will want to charge both sides for about two hours before using them again.
You should also know that it is unsafe and illegal in many places to ride on your hoverboard if it has over 80% charge remaining.
This is a safety precaution due to potential battery overheating and explosion hazards if the board itself is not operated safely.
After you’ve fully charged both sides of your batteries, make sure they’re down below 80%. For more tips on operating your hoverboard safely, try to contact customer support.
