4 top tips on how to maintain your Swegway

So once you have in your hands a brand new Swegway, it is very important that you learn how to care for and maintain it. Like everything in life the more you care and look after something the longer service it will give you.

To help you get the very best out of your board, we have put together this blog post with four tops tips on how maintain your Swegway.

The Battery

Just like any item that uses a battery, the more care you take care of it the better.

The battery in your Swegway board is Samsung or LG lithium-ion and will be of the highest quality available. We recommend using and recharging the battery fully every time so you can ensure that the battery is well maintained.

Please don’t leave the battery charging overnight!


Swegways can travel at speeds of around 10-12 mph, depending on the conditions. However, just because something can go at a certain speed, does not mean that you need to.

We do not recommend that you attempt to ride your Swegway at the maximum speed, especially if you are not riding on a perfectly flat surface.

If you are really desperate to try a faster speed then please make sure you practice to a higher level where you can confidently ride with complete stability and control. Also, remember that the faster you choose to ride the more chance there is that you will damage the board.


Your Swegway should not be exposed to too much water.  Do not ride your device through puddles, around water or in heavy rain. This will definitely not help you towards the maintenance of your board.

Try to keep it as dry as you can!

Riding Safely

Safely riding the board is an absolute must.

As a general rule, be sensible on your board and don’t do any tricks if you are not in full control. Riding a Swegway is like riding any other motorised transport; it can be dangerous especially if the user is not in full control or unbalanced and clumsy.

Whilst learning to ride the board, please make sure that you remain on flat, even ground and wear protective gear such as,  a helmet, knee pads and elbow pads.
Also, remember that Swegways are designed to be a toy so should be used for fun and entertaining, not to be used as regular transportation or for any long distances.

Please make sure you:

  • Don’t ride with more than one person on the Swegway
  • Check your weight including any items being carried do not exceed the allowable limits
  • Don’t use your mobile phone while riding the board
  • Avoid driving the board in narrow spaces
  • Do not ride on steep slopes
  • Ride with care
