The SwagTron T1 is a new Hoverboard model manufactured by Swagway, the company that made the Swagway X1, an older Hoverboard model.
SwagTron T1 is the first Hoverboard model to be UL 2272 certified. The set of UL’s rigorous tests includes a 10-ton battery crush test. This set of tests ensures that the product released into the market does not pose a risk of fire to customers. UL test was introduced earlier this year after the cases of Hoverboard fire became common among customers.
However, it was later noted that they resulted from the Chinese-made Hoverboards that were of poor quality. Due to this, the Hoverboards that did not pass the UL tests were banned from use. Big online selling websites such as Amazon also banned the sale of the sub-standard products to protect their customers.
The SwagTron T1 hands free smart Hoverboard was released on 31st, May 2016 as the only UL 2272 certified Hoverboard. It applies the patented “SentryShield” battery chamber. This gives the battery a multi-layer protection from the airtight aluminum chamber and a Smart Battery Management System (BMS). The Smart BMS helps in monitors and regulates; over voltage, temperature variations, battery overcharging, overcurrent and short circuiting.

It also has a learning mode, superior tires, and high-quality aluminum wheels with excellent tires, movement and battery indicator lights and improved grip on foot pedals that help to avoid the user from falling off.
