Hoverboards vs. Electric scooters: Who Wins?

In the last few years, a variety of alternative means of transport have been introduced to the market, such as electric scooters, hoverboards, e-bikes, etc. However, some of them have a longer history: electric scooters.

The electric scooter could be viewed as an evolution of the kick scooter with the difference that it is powered by an electric motor.

In contrast, hoverboards are self-balancing scooters that are also powered by electricity. Each wheel has a motor. Powered by a gyroscope and an acceleration sensor, these scooters can move forward or backward and change directions.

The hoverboards look much more attractive and stylish due to their innovative design. There are advantages and disadvantages to both vehicles, especially if you need a vehicle for your daily commute or long-distance travel.

Easy to use

They are both really easy to use because they are both contemporary and designed to meet the needs of their users. The disadvantage of the hoverboard is that it takes more practice at first, since balance is the key to its maneuverability.

The balance of the hoverboards makes them difficult for children to use and that is why they are not recommended for them. Give your kid an electric scooter if you want to make him/her happy while keeping him/her safe at the same time.


For the comfort of the users, it is very important for the vehicle to be easily transported and stored, and this is primarily determined by its size.

Hoverboards are small and light, weighing about 10kg.

While electric scooters are larger, they can be folded so that they reduce their size and meet the comfort requirements.

Distance range

When you use the electric scooter frequently, the range is important. The range is determined by the battery capacity.

Both types of scooters are powered by lithium batteries, but hoverboards have a smaller range. Hoverboards usually have a range of 10-20 km. The electric scooters come in different models and with different technical features that allow them to have a longer range.
