Although they don’t exactly hover, being more like a Segway without a handle, hoverboards are still undeniably cool. Not only that, but they can be a great way of getting around the house in style, and perfect for honing your balance and just having fun. But which hoverboards are best for total beginners, who need to get some practice under their belts? These are our top ten best hoverboards. Of course we have to start off our top ten hoverboards with the one Beeb just reviewed.

This is a great little hover board, with a 36 volt batter that only takes 3 hours to fully charge. It has a maximum speed of 8mph and a maximum load of 220lbs. It is compact, only 23” across and under 7” high, making it a very good one for putting away or transporting. It comes in six awesome colors, including the trendy rose gold.
VEEKO Self Balancing Scooter Hoverboard with LED Indicator Lights
This is a highly safe scooter that balances itself perfectly. It features a professional gyroscope and an acceleration sensor, as well as a servo-control system, all of which guarantee balance. The tires are non-skid and shock absorbing and the whole hoverboard is made out of durable materials and includes a one year warranty.
A slightly more expensive model, this one is well suited to travelling outdoors. It can cover 9 miles on a single charge, yet is portable enough to carry if it runs out. It charges fully in two hours, and has a battery indicator too. It is self-balancing, shock-absorbing and features rubber tires.
This reasonably priced hoverboard is one of the fastest we’ve seen, with a maximum 9.6km/h, making it considerably faster than walking. The wheels are in aluminum with rubber tires, for durability. What is more, the battery lasts up to 6 hours.
This hoverboard features the most sophisticated mainboard program to make sure you are steady and safe when using it. It can cover up to 12 miles at 8mph, and carries over 260lbs. It is also one of the most stylish we have seen, featuring a bluetooth speaker and flashing LED lights. The motors are silent so your music can be heard much better too.
If you want a hoverboard to reduce your use of fuel, this design is even more eco-friendly due to its low energy consumption.

This makes it substantially better than walking.
