The battery is one of the most important part of Hoverboard, and choosing a high-quality Hoverboard battery can greatly improve the usage time and experience.
Like most other electric vehicles, there are a few different types of batteries to consider. If you’re in the process of selecting one of the new hoverboard, then you’ll want to consider what kind of battery you’re getting.
Hoverboard Battery Fundamentals
What kinds of batteries that we can use for the Hoverboard? And what is the spec of the battery? And what is the inner structure of the Hoverboard battery? This chapter will take you to learn more.
Lithium Ion Battery
Lithium-ion batteries are one of the most common batteries in balancing scooters. Most lithium batteries are assembled with 18650 cells. Because there are many manufacturers producing 18650 cells, including Panasonic, Sony, LG and other well-known manufacturers, the price is relatively affordable. accept. The cycle life is generally 500 to 1000 times. Cilck here to get more details about our 18650 cells.
Lithium Iron Phosphate Battery
LiFePO4 batteries are popular in the market due to their extremely long cycle life and high safety. In addition, because the raw materials do not contain precious metal elements, the price is relatively cheap. The cycle life can reach 2000~4000 times. (More details, Please see our article: LFP Vs NMC Battery: Complete Comparison Guide)
Lead Acid Battery
Lead-acid batteries have gone through decades of market research. However, it is also because the lead-acid technology has been developed to the end that its energy density is low and its lifespan is poor. Therefore, if lead-acid batteries are used, they may need to face the problem of multiple charging and short single mileage. But a very advantageous point is that the price of lead-acid batteries is lower than that of lithium batteries and iron-lithium batteries.
Product name: Hoverboard Battery
Battery Pack Mathoud: 10S1P
Internal Cells: 18650 2000mah Cells
Details: All the parameter can be customized according to different requirement, please contact with ElB team to get the customized solutions about the quotation and Spec.
For most lithium-ion batteries, the cycle life is 800-1000 times.
And for lithium iron phosphate batteries, the cycle life is 2000-4000 times.
For specific battery types, you can consult the battery supplier. At present, ELB company can provide both batteries at the same time. But the price have some difference.
The price is roughly $30 ~ $60USD(36V4.4Ah Hoverboard batteries) , and this price is based on 360 days warranty. Accurate price need to be caculated according to raw material cost at that time.
How To Replace The Old Hoverboard Battery With A New Battery?
1. Get the battery parameter
2. Connect with Battery manufacturer
3. Replace Battery
The Video Instruction How To Replace Hoverboard Battery
This is a video instruction to show how to replace battery, You can check below video for your reference. For different battery model, you can contact ELB team to have a customized batteries according to different special requirement.
How To Prolong The Life Of A Hoverboard Battery
As we all know, Proper maintenance of the battery, and compliance with the principles of battery use, which can greatly extend the life of the battery.
Improper use of the battery will also shorten the life of the battery.
Anyway, here are a few tips to keep in mind to enable your battery last longer.
- Regularly Charging. Under normal circumstances, when the battery is too low, there will be a reminder when the battery has no electricity. At this time, you need to replenish the battery in time. Although the battery is too low, it will not lead to a direct safety accident, but excessive use will lead to over time. Damage to the battery structure.
(For more details about the lithium battery charging, please check our artricle 《Lithium Battery Charging: The Definitive Guide》)
- Do not overcharge. The inside of the lithium battery cell is also composed of many components. The new battery is fine. If it is used for a long time, the function of which component may decline, so there will be an overcharge safety risk. Generally, Overcharging your hoverboard battery cause damage to it in the long run.
- Use a suitable charger. Do not charge batteries with inappropriate chargers.
Avoid Completely Draining the Battery
Once the battery indicator on your hoverboard shows that the battery is getting low, proceed straightaway to charge it.
Allowing the battery to completely drain out has an adverse effect on the lifespan of the battery. It could hamper performance.
When the battery is used up, please recharge the battery in time.
The purpose of daily maintenance is to place the lithium battery in a suitable environment, thereby delaying the aging of the battery.
Here is two maintenance tips that we need comply with.
1. Protect against moisture.
2. And avoid direct sunlight.

Why Choose Lithium Battery For My Hoverboard?
Compared with lead-acid batteries, lithium batteries have many advantages as below,
- Lower cost per cycle
- Large capacity in same volume
- Less weight in same energy
- Super longer cycle life
- Less charge time

How long does a hoverboard battery last?
The lifespan of your new battery will depend on how you use it and over what course of time.
Also the battery type are important that we talked before.
In general, you should be able to get years of life from your new battery.
However, all batteries have a lifespan. We expect our ELB lithium ion battery to last approximately 600-1000 cycles until they should be replaced.
How to Test if Your Hoverboard Battery Needs Replacement
Plug your hoverboard charger into the wall plug. The light on the charger should turn green.
Plug the hoverboard charger into the hoverboard itself, making sure to line up the 3-prongs correctly to the divot at the end.
If the battery on your hoverboard is working properly, then the light on the charger should turn red. This red light means that your hoverboard battery is charging and that your problem lies elsewhere.
If the light on your charger does not turn red but instead the charger light stays green, then your battery is either 100% full, or you have a defective hoverboard battery and it needs to be replaced.
To determine if your hoverboard is full or empty, first, unplug the charger from the hoverboard.
Once unplugged, turn on the hoverboard on.
A) If your hoverboard turns on (after a full charge time) and has a red blinking light in the center, your hoverboard battery is defective and you need to buy a new hoverboard battery.
B) If your hoverboard does not turn on at all, then you either need to buy a new hoverboard battery or your motherboard may be bad.
C) If your hoverboard turns on and rides for hours, then your battery does not need to be replaced.
How often do I need to charge my batteries if I’m not using my hoverboard?
As mentioned in the last question, hoverboard batteries self-drain themselves whether they are in use or not.
For optimum battery life, we recommend topping off your new batteries and using your hoverboard at least once every 90 days.
So that’s all things related with Hoverboard batteries.
