Self Balancing Hoverboard Accessories And Extras

Find the best hoverboard accessories to go with your self balancing scooters

The Coolest Hoverboard Accessories

These are a few of the coolest scooter accessories and hoverboard safety gear to go with that new hoverboard that Santa brought you this Christmas. Now that hoverboards have been around for a few months there are beginning to be accessories available. Let's see what I found.

SELF BALANCING SCOOTER ACCESSORIES: A HOVERBOARD CARRYING CASE

A carrying case for your hoverboard is that nice bit of extra care that will extend the life of your scooter immensely. Yes, it protects it from the elements. And yes, it hides it a bit so would-be thieves might not realize that you have something worth taking.

What to Look for in a Hoverboard Bag?

Many of the bags and hoverboard carrying cases that you see on places like Amazon and EBay look exactly the same. There's a few key points that you have to remember while you are shopping for a good carrying case.

  • Make sure that the bag can fit your hoverboard. Pay attention to these two critical measurements: wheel size and board length. The standard wheel sizes: 6.5″, 8″, and 10″. The board length is the how wide your hoverboard is. You can usually find the information online, or just use a tape measure.
  • Look for extra pockets on your bag, this way you can keep your charger and any other hoverboard accessories you might have.
  • The big difference between the $10 hoverboard carrying cases and the $50 cases? The $50 carrying case is fire resistant. In case of a fire the fire-resistant bag would help to contain any flames.

There's three basic styles of hoverboard backpacks.

These first bags look like they would be perfect for carrying your hoverboard. And they are, except one huge design flaw. I'm jumping ahead of myself. Let's think of the different reasons that you would be using a bag for your hoverboard instead of riding it.

  1. You're a regular commuter that uses your hoverboard to go to work each day. But your commute one day is cut short because your battery died.
  2. You're riding your hoverboard and it starts to shake uncontrollably, you power cycle it and try riding it again. It still wobbles, I hope it's not broken.
  3. This sucks, the weather report this morning said no rain today. Where did this hurricane come from?
Don't Buy This Self Balancing Bag

Don't buy this bag. While it's not a bad bag, there's a huge flaw.

Any of these situations could happen at any time you’re riding. If it does, you're stuck having to carry a 25 lb. lead weight with you. Hopefully it's not very far. That leads me to the epic design flaw in most hoverboard carrying cases:

Make sure your hoverboard bag comes with some type of shoulder strap!

A Shoulder Strap for A Hoverboard Carrying Case

Don't buy a hoverboard carrying case without these!

The second style of hoverboard bags have attachment points on either end of the bag so that you can attach a shoulder strap to the bag. This makes it much easier to carry for a long distance.

The third type of hoverboard bag has backpack style straps. These let you carry it on one or both shoulder like a regular backpack. You'll be grateful that you spent the $10 extra the first time you have to carry your hoverboard any type of distance.

This next bag is probably the best carrying case that you can get for your hoverboard. While it doesn't have two straps to wear like a backpack, it does have wheels on the bottom. A handy strap allows you to drag the hoverboard behind you. As my girlfriend said, it's for when your wheels need wheels. This bag is the perfect choice of a bag for people that would have difficulty carrying a 25 lb. object.

PROTECT YOUR HOVERBOARD FROM THEFT

Sometimes you can't take your smart balance wheel everywhere you want. Now, there's a solution, with this hoverboard lock that is available on Amazon. It works the same as a bike lock would. Find an immovable object that you can chain your hoverboard to, and lock it down. Go do what you need to, and when you return, your hoverboard will still be there. Pretty cool.

Bring Out the Natural Glow With a Protective Skin

These caught my attention a few weeks ago, and I can't wait to order one and just play with it. They now make hoverboard or scooter skins.

They are just a small vinyl wrap that anyone can apply to the clean, dry chassis casing. Then your hoverboard goes from being just another one that everyone seems to have to a classy, and unique hoverboard owner, who seems to just ooze sophistication.

You're Probably Going to Want A Replacement Charger for Your Hoverboard

If you're anything like me, you'll probably need a new charger before you even get done reading this article. In my own case, it's not that I mistreat my charger and it dies an inglorious death.

No, it's strange shit that happens to me and my adapters.

I'll be the type that gives my adapter to a fireman to use so that he can make an emergency defibrillator and zap somebody back to life. Or I'd walk unknowingly through a massive street fight between two ninjas clans.

There I would be at the opposite side of the street clothes in tatters, charger sliced to bits with no idea what just happened. Nobody sees ninjas.

Be careful when getting a replacement charger. Those exploding hoverboards you've heard about. It was most likely while the boards were charging.

Get a charger that is the proper voltage and then also the right current and plug sizes.
