Concerned about Swegway & Hoverboard Safety? - Here's How you can Purchase with Peace of Mind

As more people discover the fun to be had gliding from A to B on a Swegway, it’s no surprise that they are becoming a common sight across the UK.

However, as with most must have items, cheap replicas have quickly followed suit, and as tempting as it might seem to buy cheap from the local gadget store, you could actually be putting your safety at risk. Stories of these cheap copies, exploding or setting fire have crept into the media, leading to some to wrongly tarnishing Swegways as unsafe.

Whether going by the name Swegway, hoverboard or anything in between, when looking to purchase one of your own, it’s important to remember that just as you would with any other electrical equipment purchases, you should always buy from a reputable retailer to ensure quality and peace of mind.


Our quality reassurance

Try before you buy 

We are the only online retailer of Swegways in the UK to have a physical store. You can pay us a visit to clear up any queries, ask questions you may have or go for a demo. In-store riding lessons also ensure that you go away equipped with the basics and knowledge of all safety aspects.


Battery & Charger Safety

In cheap models of Swegways, issues have arisen when leaving them to charge for long periods of time. However, this is an issue easily avoided by the use of premium branded battery cells and cut off- switches.

All of’s models are fitted with premium LG or Samsung batteries and the danger of overheating or overcharging is eliminated through cut-off switches and communication between the battery and the charger.



Our products are of the highest quality but just in case anything does go wrong, we offer a one year warranty on all of our Swegways. We are that confident, that we will soon be launching a three year warranty option.
