So, you have just bought your new hoverboard and now you are wondering whether it has a 36V lithium battery. Or you may be contemplating buying a new hoverboard, and since you already have a 36v lithium battery recharger, you want to make sure it will work for your new device. Whatever the case may be, it is essential for you to know. You need not look any further. This article will show you all the ways you can tell whether your hands free segway has or has not this kind of battery.
A simple yet often effective solution
The simplest way you can approach this problem is going to the listed hoverboard or, likewise, the 36v lithium battery and enlarge their supplied pictures. After you get them large enough to be able to spot the little details, you can easily check whether the plug-in ends match each other. For example, if you already have a hoverboard, you should check its plug in and compare it with the battery's. In reverse, if you have the battery and looking to buy a new hoverboard, you should compare your charger with the hoverboard's plug in. If they seem alike, 9 times out of ten, they match and will work together.
Ask the Manufacturer
You do not really have to ask the manufacturer of your hoverboard – you could so certainly do so, if you were so inclined. Instead, we recommend you visit their company's website and search around for your hoverboard model. You should have little trouble locating it, as company's these days usually keep clean and tidy product listings to enhance their brand image. After you locate your specific model, click it. Look around for "product specifications" or "item specifications". In there, you can find all the little details you need over your model. You will see its dimensions, its weight, the materials used for its construction and other similar traits.
Somewhere in there, 9 times out of 10, there should be a description of the battery your model uses. If it has a 36V Lithium Batter, the manufacturers should have it listed. In case they somehow do not list a battery, you might have to contact their customer service. They might be available specific hours of specific days, or they might be within reach 24/7. This depends entirely on the company's policy. Whatever the case may be, they should be able to provide an accurate answer to your query.
To illustrate what we mean, let's take a favorite model of ours, Razor Hovertrax DLX 2.0. After you go to the manufacturer's website, www.razor.com, and look around for the specific model you will come across a page specific to the model. After a bit of scrolling down, you come across "specifications" and "features". A quick search reveals that this package includes a battery charger, and that the model uses 36V lithium ion battery packs with LG cells. You should repeat this process for your own hoverboard, on its company's website. It is extremely likely that you will find the answer to your question.
Now, supposing that Razor did not list the battery type on the product's specification. Here is what we should do – and what you should replicate yourself, for your specific hoverboard. We would go and click "customer care" on the company's website. In there we would find customer supports toll-free call number and contact support. Alternatively, we would go to "Owner's Manuals" and download the respective product manual for our model and look inside for the answer. This final option, the download manuals, might or might not be applicable to your case.
Doing Things The Reverse Way
The last way to easily tell whether your hoverboard has or has not a 36V lithium battery is pretty much the reversal of the aforementioned process. Instead of looking at the hoverboard's description, and whether it uses this specific type of battery, you can instead look at the battery's description and see what it can be used for.
For example, assuming you were looking to get this recharger, after a little looking around you would do tell that it works to restore and recharge the batteries of Razor, SWAGWAY and SWAGTRON. While you are at it, you may want to take a look at what other customers have to say. For example, in this recharger's case, people seem to report that it works on even other models, not just on the aforementioned three.
This method is more time consuming and has a higher possibility of error, but still, the option is there if you want to go down this road.
The Key Takeaway You Should Take Home
Whichever way you go about verifying whether your hoverboard has or has not that type of lithium battery, there is a key takeaway for you to take home: These things should be best get checked out early, before you make any purchases. If you are unsure of something you should simply not buy the product until you sort out your confusion. Otherwise, you will have to go looking around the internet, calling customer support and the like, for solutions to a problem that could have been avoided in the first place.
We hope we have provided you with an adequate number of solutions to your problem. If we were to choose, we would recommend and encourage you to go to the manufacturer's website and look around for your specific model type. It looks to be the most efficient way to answer your query. It might take a bit more time to accomplish than simply enlarging the respective pictures to look for similarities, but it leaves little room for error.
And even in the remote case the the manufacturer has somehow missed listing the battery used by your hoverboard model, well, their customer support service should be well within reach, merely a few clicks away or in the worst of cases, a short call as well.
