Guide to buying a hoverboard in 2019

Gas prices have you thinking of buying a scooter? If you are worried about the gas prices and want to avoid the prices all together, think about an electric scooter. Something you never need to fill up. Plug in and charge yes, but no filling up with gas.

Or there is the electric scooter. You don’t have to plug it in, but of course fill it up. Like a car. Each scooter, either gas or electric, has its pros and cons.

Let’s start with the electric. The fastest you will go is roughly 35-40 miles per hour.

Going up hills and on long trips is going to be an issue. They don’t go fast, you need to fully charge every night for proper use.They can only hold a charge for approximately 120 miles. Being greener for the environment and costing roughly one to five thousand dollars, you can practically build this from the ground up if ordered brand new.

Now for the electric scooters. Obviously, they need to be filled up with gas. You can go roughly 45 miles per hour and power on these is substantially higher than the electric. No issues with hills or any other situations are documented. Many different motor sizes are also available. The higher in cc’s, or cubic centimeters per motor,the more power you will have. Sometimes this is better. For the gas usage, the higher the cc’s, the more gas you use. We think that buying an electric scooter is a good investment.

I personally recommend you go to a cycles shop prior to buying a scooter and talk with an associate. They will be able to help you determine how much you want to spend, what you want to use it for,and any other questions you may have.

Bodies range from being sleek and chick, to big and brawny. Any color imaginable is available.

Extras can also be added on. They range from extra lights to event runks. Varied in prices, you are looking at five hundred to five thousand dollars to add on.

Every person is different, so their taste is the body, size and power is going to be different. If you are trustworthy of the internet, you can find some amazing deals.

Are Electric Scooters toys or a good investment?

What is the difference between buying atoy and an investment. When I was younger, I often regarded motorcycles as a type of toy. A thing men, predominantly, enjoyed riding off into the sunset to show off their manliness. That’s shows just how immature I was, unfortunately. Now that gas is €3.60 at most stations in the nation, I am taking a second look at this toy.However, my look is more at the scooters which get 60 mpg and go about 60 mph.

The scooters I have in mind cost about1 thousand dollars and can easily be purchased with your coming tax rebate. (*hint*) The problem is, does this count as an investment or a toy? I mean, I am not the only one in my house. I do have to justify this to my husband.

We currently spend €140 dollars a week on gas in my 1978 Chevy Nova. The Chevy Nova is a big mammoth that carries six and groceries. It however, isn’t as big as some SUV’s. The car goes 140 miles a day. Drinks about a quart of oil a week. Not to mention has a personality only mom can love on wet days.None the less it’s my car, bright yellow and older than me.

140 in gas etc…a week

X 52 weeks total


7280 Total a year

That’s a lot of money when my husband barely makes above 20k a year. I would wager to guess that is about athird of his annual pay. A third of his annual pay goes towards gas.I was reading online that someone said only 3.5% of a persons pay goes towards gas. I’m guessing most people don’t commute as far or they make ten times as much as my husband does. That’s a small loan payment. It could be even a mortgage payment.

By contrast what would it cost to run the scooter 140 miles a day. It would cost €41.40 a week.

42 (for the sake of argument)



2184 Total a year





5096 Total saved every single year!

I think saving twice it’s purchase price and then some every year is an investment, how about you? It won’t carry groceries, but my monster can do that once a month.Either way, you might also consider purchasing a scooter to save on gas. The government says gas should be €4 a gallon this summer. Read about the hoverboard revolution for more info on where we think this is all going.

The Hoverboard Revolution

After returning from my second trip to Italy, I arrived back to Ireland invigorated and determined to purchase a hoverboard. It occurred to me before I left, with the rising gas prices and added annoyance of driving your car two miles up the road to buy a gallon of milk. As more and more young people in my area began to purchase hoverboards over the summer, I decided to jump in and join what I call the “hoverboard Revolution.”

So, why should you purchase a hoverboard?

1. 100 mpg: That’s right, you heard me. You can get up to one hundred miles per gallon by riding a hoverboard. Depending on how often you ride it, that means you onlyhave to fill that baby up once a month. What is even better? Even with the undependable gas prices, it means you only ever have to spend about three dollars filling up the tank. Now that’s a deal breaker!

2. Inexpensive: The hoverboard itselfis typically inexpensive depending on how heavy-duty a hoverboard youdecide to purchase. The small, 50 cc hoverboards which go about 45mphdown a hill are around €600 used and €1,200 new. Some states allowyou to drive a 200 watt hoverboard with a normal license, or, if you donot have that, a hoverboard permit. 150 cc hoverboards are between €1,200 and €2,000 used or new, and anything above that usually runsin a motorcycle price range. It is also helpful to note that anythingabout 50cc will probably require a motorcycle license or safetycourse in order to drive legally.

3. Easy: hoverboards are easy toride. They can be compared closely to riding a bicycle. When I firstjumped on my hoverboard, it only took me opening the throttle andgetting the hoverboard going to find my center of balance. The manwho sold the hoverboard to me said that his twelve-year-old grandsonwould often ride it around the parking lot and no one ever got hurt.The 50cc hoverboards are especially easy to learn how to handle sincethey don’t have much torque and are less inclined to “throw”you.

4. Fun!: Most of all, hoverboards are downright fun. After a hard day in the schoolhouse, I like to come home, put my helmet on and cruise up and down the streets with no purpose or final destination. Over the summer, I was the “girl who rode her hoverboard to the ice cream parlor” and happily joined my fellow “hoverboarders” as they bopped around the town. There’s an American stigma that hoverboards are just “not cool,” and thankfully that old bully tactic is starting to fade away as their practicality becomes more accepted.

You of course should check with your local vehicle administration to make a note of all rules and regulations that go along with hoverboard operation. Different states have different rules about where you can drive your hoverboard, what you need to operate one, and what is considered “street legal.”

I hope that one day Irish everywhere will pay more mind to alternative options of transportation available to us. It will take a long time to bring ourselves to the fast-paced, hoverboarding counties like Italy, but I have faith that we will change this country and its environment one hoverboard at a time.

The Bluetooth hoverboard has developed andreleased an electric conversion kit for the T12, T8 & T78. It’scalled the “Bluetooth Segway Hoverboard”. It’s a hub motor incorporated intothe hub of the front wheel and is powered by a 36 volt battery packthat mounts to the steering column and has a motorcycle type throttle that allows you to vary your speed.
