Here's a replacement battery for your self balancing scooter. How will you know that you need to replace your battery?

The battery in your hoverboard is just like the battery that you find in your cell phone. Since it is a lithium ion battery, you shouldn't need to break the battery in, though I would fully charge it before using it for the first time.

What that entails is fully charging it, and then draining it most of the way and recharging it fully again. If you do that, it will help prolong the life of your battery. Other things to do:

  • Charge your battery often
  • Don't drain your battery empty, this damages lithium-ion batteries.
  • Avoid letting the battery overheat
  • Try to keep the battery from being damaged

The random fires and exploding hoverboards were most likely caused by the batteries overheating or being damaged. They really don't like that.
