I was lucky enough to order a swegway self balancing scooter from eBlade as a Christmas present to myself this year.
These self balancing scooters are EVERYWHERE at the moment and some of the dodgy suppliers have run into trouble as their cheap Chinese batteries and chargers have been exploding!
I opted for a slightly more expensive version swegway than the cheap knock-off versions and I'm glad I did as the build quality of the eBlade hoverboards are top notch. It comes with a Samsung lithium battery and built-in Bluetooth speakers so you can pump tunes as you ride. I opted for the eBlade Ultra which has slightly bigger wheels and extra LEDs in the wheel arches. It looks like a spaceship at night!
When it comes to riding these boards they're surprisingly simple to control. Once you get over the initial fear of falling off and relax, your subconscious sort of takes over and it becomes second nature.
Very cool gadget. Can't wait to ride it to and from work!
