Anyone who is not familiar with hoverboards at all then this article is for them. A hoverboard is basically a means of self-transport, you could say that it is a scooter that is run by an electric motor, although they do not have any handlebars. All you have to do is stand on the board with your feet near the wheels. The board is self-balanced due to the sensors so you do not have to worry about falling or having a difficult time trying to learn how to use it like it did when you learned to ride a scooter or a bicycle.
If you want to speed up your pace all you have to do is lean forward and to slow down or go in reverse you have to lean backward. For turns, you have to alternatively press forward with one foot and backward with the other. Once you ride one it is pretty easy to figure out.
There are many different models of the hoverboard although there is not much difference among the models, just small minor changes. Some run on one motor, while others have two different motors. Some have the feature that makes sure that no one else can ride your hoverboard without your permission. Almost all the hoverboards have rechargeable batteries in them.

Although these hoverboards are useful means of self-transport there are still some risks associated with them. There have been many cases in which the hoverboards have caught fire while they were charging and in some cases while being ridden. Due to these concerns many hoverboards have been taken out of the shelves, the reason for catching fire is still under investigation.
