1.2.The preparation before operation
Before using, the battery should be fully charged. Please check Chapter 6.
1.3.The weight limitation of the operator
The reason for the weight limitation: 1. guarantee the safety of the operator; 2. decrease the damage of overloading.

CHAPTER 2 OPERATING THE BALANCE SCOOTER

2.1.Calibration
If your hoverboard seems to pull to the left or right, you may need to recalibrate its sensors. Step as below:
Step 1: Shut down/level the scooter
Step 2: Press the Power button for more than 10 seconds until you see the light flashing 5 times.
Step 3: Shut down the scooter again.

NOTE:
Built-in Self-Balance function, it is easy for driving.
2.2.Operating principal
– The hoverboard uses Dynamic equilibrium, using an internal gyroscope and acceleration sensors. The status of the hoverboard is controlled by the center of gravity. It is adjusted by a motor, which is controlled by the servo control system. When you lean forward, it will sense your actions accelerate. When you need to turn, slow it down and move your foot forwards or backward then the center-of-gravity of the body moves left or right therefore the hoverboard can sense moving left or right.
– The hoverboard has an inertial dynamic stabilization system, so it can keep anterior-posterior balance but cannot guarantee the left and right. So when turning, the scooter needs to be operated slowly, otherwise, you may be injured.

2.3.Learn how to use it
Step 1: Press the power button to turn on the hoverboard.
Step 2: Put the hoverboard on flat ground and make sure all safety measures are taken. Put one foot on the pad that will trigger the pedal switch to turn on the operation indicator, after the system enters the self-balancing mode, put the other foot on the pad.
Step 3: Take control of the hoverboard forwards or backward, do remember the movement of your body should not be abrupt.

NOTE:
If you are not in a balanced condition when you trigger the footswitch, the buzzer will alarm, and the warning LED will light. The system is not in a self-balanced condition. Without a balanced condition, you should not operate the hoverboard. Then you need to calibrate the sensors, see point
2.2. Step 4: Control the left and right direction of the hoverboard.
Step 5: Before you get off, make sure that the hoverboard is still in balanced condition and stopped, then step off one foot, then the other foot.
WARNING!
You should never turn violently when driving fast.
You should never ride sideways or turn on a slope. It will lead to a fall and injury.

2.4.Always react to alarms
– Hoverboard will not operate in the following situations:
– During operation, if the system runs an error, the hoverboard will prompt operators in different ways such as prohibit riding, alarm indicator lights, and buzzer alarm beeps intermittently the system cannot enter self-balancing mode.
– When stepping on the hoverboard the platform moves forwards or backward more than 10 degrees, and the unit will not operate.
– The voltage of the battery is too low.
– During charging.
– During operation, the platform turns upside down will prohibit operation.
– Over speeding.
– The battery is not charged enough.
– Tire stall, two seconds later the scooter enters power-off mode.
– The battery voltage is lower than the protection value, 15 seconds later the hoverboard enters into power off mode.
– Continuing large current discharge (such as a long-time climbing a very steep slope)
WARNING!

When the hoverboard enters the shutdown state (when the battery is low), the system will lock down the machine automatically. It can be unlocked when you press the power button. When the battery has been depleted or the system gives out information with safety shutdown, please do not continue to drive the hoverboard, otherwise, the overboard cannot balance for the lack of battery. In this condition, the driver is likely to be harmed. If the battery reaches the minimum, the continued driving of the hoverboard will negatively affect the battery’s life. The product should only be used in temperatures between -10℃ – +45℃.

2.5.Riding practice
Before you drive the hoverboard, please make sure you are familiar with the skills of driving it. Always practice with someone ready to hold/catch you.
– Use casual (but not loose) clothes and flat shoes in order to retain your body’s flexibility.
– Please go to open spaces to practice driving the hoverboard until you can easily get on/off.- -Make sure that the surface is level.
– When you are driving on different terrain, you must slow down.
– Hoverboard is a driving tool designed for a smooth road. Reduce speed if you drive the hoverboard on a rough surface.
– Before driving: Read Chapter 4 on maximum speed and Chapter 5 on safe driving thoroughly

CHAPTER 3 PEDAL SENSOR AND INDICATOR OPERATION

3.1.Pedal sensor
The hoverboard has 4 sensors below the pedal, when the operator steps on the pedal, the hoverboard will adjust itself to a balancing pattern automatically. When riding it, you have to make sure that the pedal is being fully stepped on, please do not step on the parts outside the pedal. Do not put things on the pedals to make the hoverboard operate by itself and increase the possibility of crashing and even causing personal injury and damage to the hoverboard itself.

3.2.Battery & Operation Indicators
– The indicator is located in the middle of the hoverboard. It is used for operation information.
The battery indicator on the hoverboard will show green color as long as there is sufficient power on the battery to drive.
The battery indicator on the hoverboard will show red color when battery power is down (15-20% left) and you will you need to stop driving and start to recharge the hoverboard.
– Battery indicator on the hoverboard will show RED and have a WARNING ALARM SOUND when battery power has run out and you must stop driving immediately. The hoverboard will now shut down without further notice and the hoverboard will then lose balance. You may have a risk to get injured if still try to keep driving.
– Operation indicator: When the pedal is triggered, the operation indicator will light then the system comes into
– operating condition; when the system runs an error, the indicator will turn red.

CHAPTER 4 RANGE AND SPEED

4.1.Range per charge
The range per charge is related to many factors, for example:

– Topography: On even roads,  the range per charge will be increased, on uneven terrain, it will be decreased.
– Weight: The weight of the operator can influence the driving distance.
– Temperature: Extreme temperature will decrease the driving distance.
– Maintenance: If the hoverboard is charged properly and the battery is kept in good condition, this will maximize the driving distance.
– Speed and driving style: Keeping a steady speed will increase the driving distance, on the contrary, frequent starts, stop, acceleration and deceleration will reduce the distance.-

CHAPTER 6 CHARGING THE HOVERBOARD

This chapter mainly discusses the charging methods, how to maintain the battery, the safety issues you need to pay attention to, and battery specifications. For safety of yourself and others, to extend the battery’s life, and improve battery performance, please make sure to follow the following operations.

6.1.Low battery
When you find the battery indicator is red and flashing, it indicates a low battery. It is recommended that you stop driving.
When the power is low, there is not enough energy for your normal driving, then the system will automatically tilt the base of the platform to prohibit the operator’s use. It is very easy to fall if you insist on driving at this time and negatively affects the battery’s life.

– Do not use the battery in the following cases.
– Giving out some odor or excessive heat
– Leakage of any substance.
– It is prohibited to disassemble the battery.
– Do not touch any substance leaking out of the battery.
– Do not let children and animals touch the battery.
– Batteries contain dangerous substances inside. It is forbidden to open the battery and to stick objects into the battery.
– Use only the supplied charger.
– Don’t overcharge lithium batteries. The battery pack consists of lithium batteries.

NOTE:
When you find the battery indicator is green and flashing then after some time it will change to red light and the alarm will beep. Now it does not allow you to drive anymore. It indicates a low battery. It is recommended that you stop driving and recharge the hoverboard. When the battery is low, there is not enough power for normal driving. The operational system of the hoverboard will automatically tilt the platform forward to prohibit use. This could cause the driver to fall off the hoverboard and become injured.
