You just bought the coolest new toy! Your brand-new hoverboard keeps shutting off! Don’t fret, my friend, we’re going to help you solve this problem once and for all so you can enjoy your hoverboard without any problems!
First, what exactly happens when your hoverboard shuts off? Well, it depends on the make and model of your board. In my case, I did not know how to get out of the issue because I was new in this field. I was not a frequent hoverboard user.
If your board has two batteries, then it might be that one battery isn’t fully charged yet and your board will shut off automatically to prevent damage to the battery and other components.
Is it damaged?
If your hoverboard has been shutting off more frequently, it may be a sign that the battery is dying and needs to be charged.
To check if this is the case, put the hoverboard on a flat surface and see if it shuts off again. If it does, plug in the charger and let it charge for an hour or so before using it again. In condition your board has not been used recently, you may also want to consider changing its batteries.
What if your hoverboard keeps shutting off even when you charge it, there are a few other possible causes of this issue. For example, sometimes debris can get stuck inside the motor which will cause it to stop working properly.
Check the charger
The most common reason for your hoverboard to shut off is that the battery has run out of power. To charge it, simply plug the charger into an outlet and plug the other end into the charging port on your hoverboard.
It should take about 3 hours to charge a completely drained battery. Make sure you unplug the charger from your hoverboard when it’s done charging so you don’t overcharge and ruin your board!
Did you register your product yet?
The next step is to register your product with UL. It’s a simple process that takes just a few minutes. It will help you if there is ever an issue with your hoverboard.
Head over to UL’s registration page, click Start a New Product Registration, enter your hoverboard’s model number, click Next and fill out the required information on the next screen.
Check if you have downloaded the app
Many people are wondering why their hoverboards keep shutting off. The first thing to check for is the app. If the app has not been downloaded on the device, the device will shut down and go into standby mode.
To fix this issue, please download the app from your respective App Store and then restart your device. Once you’ve restarted your device, it should be able to function properly again.
Check the originality of the board
The hoverboard craze has been a bit of a mixed bag. On the one hand, it’s been great for people who have trouble walking or are trying to get in shape. But on the other hand, many self-balancing scooters have been shown to have serious safety and security issues.
The biggest issue is that many hoverboards are counterfeit products that don’t meet product safety standards and can overheat, catch fire, or short-circuit and shut down unexpectedly.
There is also some evidence that these counterfeits can be ridden with an app containing malware.
Did you forget to fully charge your battery pack?
Charging your hoverboard may be the problem. If your battery is low, it will shut off automatically to preserve power and protect it from being damaged. There are also a few other things that could cause a hoverboard to shut off:
- The remote controller’s batteries could be running low. Try replacing them if this is the case
- The remote controller could have lost connection with the board and needed to reconnect by pressing the button on top of it while also holding down the power button on the front of the board
Hoverboard battery replacement
For some people, the hoverboard battery may shut off after only a few minutes of use. This can be brought on by a variety of things, such as:
- The hoverboard is not being charged correctly. Use the power adapter that came with the product to charge it fully. If there is no power adapter, you can use any laptop or smartphone charger to charge it; plug in the hoverboard and plug your charger into an outlet
- There might be dirt or debris on the charging port on your hoverboard (this can happen over time). To fix this problem, use a Q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol to clean out any debris from the charging port
- The battery life indicator may need new batteries or it may malfunctioning
Why does my hoverboard keep dying?
The life of your hoverboard depends on how often you use it, the terrain you ride on, and the weight of the rider. The more you use it, the less likely it is to work for a long period of time. This is why some hoverboards have a high wattage (350-800 watts) and others have lower wattages (220-500 watts).
If you are riding on rough terrain or carrying a heavy load then the power will be drained quickly and may not last as long. If this is happening to your board then try using it in an easier environment, like a flat ground with no one else on it. The more often you use your board in this type of environment, the longer it will last!
How to reset the hoverboard battery?
If you have a hoverboard that keeps shutting off, it could be for one of two reasons. The first is that the battery is too low and needs to be charged.
The other reason is that your hoverboard isn’t compatible with certain power sources, like USB outlets. To restart your hoverboard, simply charge the battery or switch to a different power source and then press the on/off button.
How do I reset my hoverboard?
The most common reason for a hoverboard shutting off is a problem with the battery. There are some steps you can try to get your board running again:
- Check the lights on the charger. If they don’t turn on, then your charger might be broken and will need to be replaced. If the lights do turn on but your board still won’t charge, then it might have an issue with its battery
- If you hear a high-pitched noise when you plug in your board, this could also indicate that there’s an issue with the battery
The most common reason a hoverboard will shut off is that the battery has run out of power. To avoid this, charge your hoverboard overnight before using it. After that keep an eye on the battery level. You use it to make sure you don’t let it get too low.
If you notice that your board is running out of battery quickly, then it may be time for a new one. Another thing to check is if your hoverboard lights are flashing, which means there’s not enough power to operate.
Another possible reason for shutting off is that there’s not enough weight in the back of the board, so try redistributing some weight and see if that helps.
