Self Balancing Scooter Battery Models
There are various hoverboard battery models, all of which are approximately the same size (aside from the obvious specialty batteries listed). The core differences between them are:
- Brand of Battery Cells Used Inside
- How The Battery Is Built
Hoverboard Battery Brands
Regarding battery brands, the selection between them is as follows:
- Basic Battery Cells
- LG Battery Cells
- Samsung Battery Cells
The difference between the brand of battery cells is mainly the technology that they use to build them. The basic battery cells are our cheapest, and otheur Samsung battery cells use Samsung backed technology allowing them to propel your hoverboard up steeper inclines, and are more reliable over time. Reports have indicated that basic battery cells will get you about 300 charges on average, while Samsung battery cells will get you 600 charges on average.
In 2015, hoverboard battery manufacturers were selling batteries without care for any sort of testing or certification. While most worked just fine, some were subject to catastrophes such as battery explosions and fires. These days there are safer options available. Upgraded batteries can be more expensive, but several safety upgrades were made including:
- Improved thermal sensor on the battery management system circuit board.
- Thick plastic casing, protecting the battery more from drop damage and flames if they should occur.
- Tight shrink wrap protecting and joining the positive and negative battery cables leading to the yellow banana clip plug at the end.
