How to Reset a Hoverboard

Battery life is one of the biggest concerns for hoverboard owners. It can be difficult to keep the charge in your hoverboard, especially if you aren’t using it very often. There are a few things that you can do to help your hoverboard stay at a consistent charge.

Hoverboard features a display that contains useful information. The charge is usually displayed as a number. You can remove the battery and charge it separately from the hoverboard. This way, you won’t drain the hoverboard while charging it.

So, that’s how to charge a hoverboard. But what if the hoverboard won’t charge? Maybe it’s due to a problem with the battery. You can fix the problem by resetting or calibrating your battery. To do it you need:

  • Your hoverboard;
  • A PC or laptop;

A hoverboard charger.

The next step is to plug your hoverboard into the charger. Make sure that your hoverboard has enough charge.

Then, download the software you need for your computer at the official website of your hoverboard.

Follow the instructions you’ll find on the website.

After that, you need to download the application of Windows and open it.

When it has opened, go to the desired line.

When is Calibration Needed?

The touch panels of your hoverboard can sometimes get skewed or out of alignment. Sometimes, one side of the screen may not respond sometimes, while the other side responds to your finger strokes. This can lead to a lot of unnecessary fallouts. These fallouts can happen whenever you try moving in a direction and there’s no response.

This is a calibration issue. To fix this problem, you have to calibrate the hoverboard. This helps align the touch panel and touchscreen of the hoverboard.

When to recalibrate?

There are a few things that can screw up the calibration of the hoverboard. The first instance is when you have your board’s battery drained. The second instance is when your board’s software is updated. Now since the first instance is most common, you don’t really have to worry about it. However, when the software updates are made if you’re not careful, it can mess up the calibration. The only time you should have to recalibrate is when it’s necessary, and that’s when the touch-screen of the drone won’t be responsive while it’s charging.

How to do it?

Different Ways to Calibrate Your Hoverboard

Hoverboards are taking the world by storm. They’re compact, sturdy, and super fun. But before you hit the roads, be sure that the hoverboard is calibrated. The last thing you want is to be floating as you skid miserably across the pavement. You should also calibrate your hoverboard before every ride because the flooring you’re riding on may require a different calibration for your hoverboard to maintain a balance.

Since there are a lot of different hoverboards, we recommend using the very basic process below. Once you get the hang of it, you can try out different methods in the future. Generally, the hoverboard should have come with a manual that explains how to calibrate it.

Testing Your Hoverboard after Calibration

After you calibrate your hoverboard, you should test it to make sure that it’s working properly.

Step 1

After your calibration process is complete, put the hoverboard on the ground. Make sure that your hoverboard is on a flat surface and it’s free of any obstructions that could cause it to slip forward or tip over.

Step 3

Go on your hoverboard and use your fingers to inspect the wheels. As you ride, you should be able to run your fingers along the wheels to feel if they’re making any noise. In most cases, the wheels should not make any noise when you ride your hoverboard. However, if the wheels do make a buzzing sound, it means that your hoverboard’s wheels are out of balance.

Step 2

Put your hoverboard on a flat surface, and move your hoverboard forward. Now you can use your fingers to gently prod at the wheels. One of the wheels should move as you prod, while the other should not. If that’s the case, it means that the other wheel is not turning.

Step 4

As you ride, you should not feel any vibrations. If you do feel vibrations, it is likely that your hoverboard is experiencing a loose or broken bearing.


As you can see you can get the most out of your hoverboard and a great hoverboard should not leave you disappointed.

It not only gave you an enjoyable experience but it also may have been a good way to lose weight and maintain your weight.

In addition, it has been found to be a good way to stay fit. So anytime you get tired, instead of heading to the gym or paying for a few gym equipment, get an electrifying hoverboard and start having comfort while on the hoverboard.

Finally, hoverboards are a good way to relax yourself or to add a new dimension to your work. With a good hoverboard, you would definitely enjoy the experience and the experience would definitely not be boring.

So whenever you get a chance to enjoy yourself get on a hoverboard and take your mind off the mundane situations of life. Enjoy!
