Swegway UK: A Buying Guide
You have lots of decision to make when it comes to personal style, but there are two basic rules to consider when shopping for the Swegway UK.
For a kid under 10, we advise you opt for the Classic Swegway – they are ideal for indoor use, and can be used on a surface like a smooth pavement or a patio. Young kids can handle the device efficiently.
For a kid over 10, if he will ride the Swegway on a rough surface we advise you opt for the Huracan. The 8″ wheels ensure that you ride smoothly on the rugged terrain, and the incorporation of Bluetooth-features allows you connect to your smartphone to play your favorite songs while you roll!
Many dealers in the UK opt for the importation of cheap Chinese balance boards – especially during festive periods – which did not meet the required standards, and most do not come with UK plugs. These devices are susceptible to the explosion, and this made Trading Standards stop their sales.
Opt for boards that meet the Trading Standards and requirements. Especially those that have UK plugs, chargers and are CE approved. It must also come with high-quality wiring looms coupled with genuine Samsung batteries.
Avoid opting for cheap versions! Most inexpensive and low-quality boards do not come with a warranty and therefore are not approved by CE. Even worse, these cheap boards are imported directly from China (within six weeks!) leaving you with fewer options if something goes wrong. And again, you will be required to pay for customs fees.
To get a quality board, you are expected to pay over £240; we believe that is modest!
An essential component of your Swegway UK is the battery. Opt for brands that use high-grade Lithium-Ion batteries designed by Samsung to power their devices. This ensures the endurance of the device and to power it for more extended periods. Overlooking this feature could lead to an explosion or a short battery. For optimum satisfaction and to get the full value for your money, endeavor to consider the factors highlighted above and make an informed decision.
