Cool and Trendy Hoverboard stunts:

First of all, let’s take start with a basic stunt. It is an easy stunt to perform, but it’s the coolest in swag. But before performing these stunts, keep your safety first and wear safety gear properly.

Basic spin:

Tilt one foot down and keep the other in place to perform the basic spin, so the board starts spinning. If you want to spin left, then tilt the left foot and keep the right foot at rest and if you want to spin right, then tilt the right foot down and keep the left foot at rest.
Did you notice that? It’s just a piece of cake.

The circle:

The circle is another basic stunt like bare spin butt a little bit challenging to perform this stunt; you have to balance your whole body on the one side of the Hoverboard, and the board selects the other side as the axis and starts rotating.

The 360′ Turn:

Now let’s head toward the advanced level. The 360′ turn is difficult to perform and demands practice. To perform this stunt, you need to be quick and accurate. Just spin your board at 180′ and jump, and don’t let the board go more than 180′; otherwise, you will be injured. And then spin your board, jump, and try to catch the board at the same angle. Now you’re one rotation 360′ get complete. To perform this stunt, you have to be calm; it takes time.

The Hero’s swirl:

Cool but hard to perform. For performing this stunt, balance is the key; just put one hand on the wheel and the other in the air, put one foot on the footboard, and keep the other foot slightly up from the ground. The board starts rotation. The tricky point is to keep your body balanced in this position.
Now let me try to answer some of your questions that will help you keep a long-time partnership between you and you’re shinning Hoverboard.


Is it fine to play with Hoverboard with a low battery?

If the indicator light turns red, don’t ride, especially when it’s beeping. Now quickly stop riding and put Hoverboard on charging.

What happens when I leave Hoverboard on charging overnight?

Due to overcharging, the battery got heated up and maybe got exploded. So don’t make such a mistake.

How long can a hoverboard battery last?

A fully charge hoverboard battery can last for 1 hour. It purely depends on the quality of the Hoverboard.

How examine the charger of the Hoverboard?

If you fully charge Hoverboard that doesn’t last more than 30 minutes, and the charging indicator (red light) is dimmer than normal, your hoverboard charger needs to be changed.


Now it’s time to say goodbye I have tried my best to answer how to charge Hoverboard with laptop charger. Did you notice? It’s a pretty crazy idea to do so.

Keep one thing in your brilliant mind while charging your Hoverboard with a laptop charger; there is a 70% chance of the wire getting unplugged because the hoverboard port is designed for three prongs adopter and laptop charging adopters are one prong. So, the adopter doesn’t perfectly grip the slot.

Again, I repeat that charging the Hoverboard with laptop charger and without charger are just tricks, not a proper solution to the charging problem. If your hoverboard charger is out of operation, use these methods but keep your focus on buying a new one. While charging, avoid your board overcharging.
