Step 4: Switch on to finish the calibration.
Step 1: Press the power button to switch on the hoverboard.
Step 2: Put the scooter on a flat surface and make sure all safety measures are taken. Put one foot on the pad, this will trigger the pedal switch and switch on the indicator light. Once you feel that the system enters the self-balancing mode, put the other foot on the pad.
Step 3: Now start moving forwards and backwards, do remember the movement of your body should not be abrupt. 4. It is easier when you step backwards to come off your Swegway.
If you sense under foot that you are not in a balanced position when you trigger the foot-switch, the buzzer will set off an alarm, and the warning LED will come on. As long as the system plays up and does not appear to switch to balance you should not operate the scooter. 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 Swegway is still in balanced condition and has stopped moving, then step off with one foot, then the other foot.

Before you drive the balance scooter, please make sure you are familiar with driving it. Always practice with someone ready to hold/catch you.
The balance scooter has four sensors below the platform, when the operator steps on the platform, the hoverboard will adjust itself to a balancing pattern automatically. When riding it, you have to make sure that the platform is being fully stepped on, please do not step on the parts outside the platform. Do not put objects, toddlers or animals on the platform to guarantee that the hoverboard does not cause injury to yourself or others.
The indicator is located in the middle of the hoverboard. It is used for operating information.
The range per charge is related to many factors, for example:
Terrain: You’ll ride longer on smoother roads than on uneven terrain.
Weight: The heavier you are the slower the hoverboard and the shorter the range
Temperature: Extreme temperature will decrease the driving distance.
Maintenance: If the balance scooter is charged properly and the battery is kept in good condition, this will maximize the driving distance you can achieve
Speed and driving style: Keeping a steady speed will increase the driving distance, on the contrary, frequent start, stop, acceleration, deceleration will reduce the distance.
The maximum speed of the balance scooter is ca.15km/h but depends on many factors even the direction of the wind, the driver’s weight, etc. If the battery is fully charged, the surface is very level or even angled downward, there is a tailwind, and the driver is not very heavy, the maximum speed may exceed 15km/h.
Approaching its maximum speed, the balance scooter emits a warning signal, and speed should be reduced.
We recommend driving the balance scooter at speeds that are comfortable to you and not driving the balance scooter at speeds exceeding 15km/h.
If you stick to the suggested speed, the electric scooter can balance itself well.
