Hoverboard Battery Replacement
The best hoverboard battery replacement is a UL and CE certified battery. We currently stock these as they are very high quality replacement batteries for a hoverboard. In short, these are safe hoverboard batteries and we provide you with our documentation (bottom of page) to prove that they are the safest.
Hoverboard Battery Not Working?
There are many reasons why a hoverboard battery is not working all of the sudden. Having performed hundreds of repairs to hoverboards, we have found that the main culprit behind a broken hoverboard battery is related to two things:
- The use of a cheap (unbranded) hoverboard battery.
- The use of a non-UL listed hoverboard charger.
Upgrading to UL2271 Battery
If your hoverboard is more than 1-year old then we recommend upgrading to a new hoverboard battery. You may open your hoverboard and see a blue, green, or gray battery inside. This is a common battery type from 2014 to 2017. However, going into 2017 the best hoverboard battery is the UL2271 certified hoverboard battery.
You might look at your battery and wonder if the UL2271 hoverboard battery is compatible. The quick answer is yes, it is compatible. The long answer is that the new UL2271 certification required some changes to the design of the hoverboard battery to make it safer.
The changes made to hoverboard battery design is that the battery is now enclosed in a fire resistant plastic mold, has a temperature sensor inside, and also has the positive and negative wires heat-shrank together. This prevents you, or the manufacturer, from lodging screws into the wires, causing a potentially dangerous situation.
If you're wondering if the black hoverboard battery will fit where the blue hoverboard battery was, then answer again is yes it will. When you're installing the new UL2271 hoverboard battery you can also throw away the black battery cage, as it is no longer needed. We do recommend that you recycle the old lithium ion hoverboard battery.
