NewEgg Holiday Weekend Sale offers $240 Hoverboard Deal

The 72-hour NewEgg Weekend Sale has kicked off, NewEgg calls it the biggest yet.

The Holidays are moving in quickly. I am every year stumped how fast time goes by after Thanksgiving. While many consumers opt for early gift shopping, now is crunch time for the rest. NewEgg tries to lure Holiday shoppers with a 72-hour long sale, which is supposed the biggest weekend promotion of 2015.

One deal that stands out indeed is a $239.99 Hoverboard. NewEgg says you save 52% on these smart balancing boards ($499 MSRP). There are 7 colors available. The specs of the offered Hoverboard include a 36V/4.4Ah Lithium Battery, 9.3MPH max speed, 10 miles range, plastic and aluminum body.

This is a basic hoverboard, but the price is the lowest we have found. More expensive hoverboards like this Swagway X1 give you more range. Many of the hoverboards listed on Amazon carry already a warning that they might not arrive in time for Christmas.

Hoverboard are red hot this Holidays, despite not being legal in most public areas. On top of that more reports surface of Hoverboards bursting up in flames. The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is already investigating. 

“The CPSC is looking into the safety of the entire product line,” Scott Wolfson, the agency’s communications director, told Gizmodo in an interview. “We have active investigations into incidents that have occurred in California, Ohio, Texas, Louisiana, and Alabama. There have been additional incidents in Florida and Pennsylvania.”

As more people are getting onto Hoverboards, the number of injuries goes up. Riding these devices can be dangerous.

CES organizers also made clear this week again that hoverboards are not allowed at the CES 2016 show.
