Safety Precautions every iRover owner should understand

7:47:00 AM

As CD-R King, your One Stop Shop, launched their version of the hover board known as iRover, everyone was skeptical at first. A lot of issues had been thrown out and it was all over the news that owning an iRover is dangerous and sales of the product must be stopped and banned in the country. But let's face it, usage of any product is truly dangerous once a user do not totally understand how it works and what the dos and don'ts are. As the saying goes, with great power comes with great responsibility - Ben Parker, owners of iRover/Hover board must be responsible in using the product.



First of all, seeing the design and the totality of the iRover, a lot of people mistakenly think that it is a toy, but apparently it is not. As per DTI's consumer's safety requirement, it must be known to buyers of iRover that it can only be used by 14 year olds and above. Users must be able to learn and understand the following safety tips before trying out the gadget:

-As a two wheeled gadget, iRover users must exercise proper care by wearing protective gears such as helmets, wrist guards, elbow and knee pads.

-Start riding the iRover in front of a sturdy handle to achieve balance. Try letting go of the handle slowly while balancing and leaning backwards. Once you get the hang of it, gently lean forward to thrust in a slow mode forward. Just make sure that you always start off in a slow and steady pace to prevent accidents.

-In maneuvering the iRover, slightly put on weight on the opposite side of where you want to turn. For example, if you want to go right, put a slight weight on the left portion of the iRover and vice versa. 

-It is advisable that usage of the iRover is strictly for indoors only.



-Most important tip for safety is with regards to battery charging. Please keep in mind that charging your iRover is up to 6 hours only and must be done with extreme precautions and with a presence of an adult. 



These tips are also clearly seen on the box of the iRover because CD-R King's priority in providing gadgets to consumers is their safety in using the products they sell. So what are you guys waiting for? Visit the nearest CD-R King branch or check out their Website to achieve balance everyday and own an iRover!

  1. I have tried a go on one of these hover boards. My friend got her son one for Christmas. They can be dangerous and bad falls can result from their use. safety helmets are a must. I also heard of siome of these hover boards catching fire but these are probably very isolated cases.

  4. Great share! I love the tip of the hat to Spiderman. Uncle Ben's comment is so true and sadly many people don't realize it. These are not quite the toy everyone thinks they are. If you are a skater like I was you realize something like this is a whole new animal. I'm saddened by the bad rap they've gotten through youtube by non-thinking, ill-prepared show-offs. When people start respecting them they will be a whole new level of fun!

  5. They look super cool! I used to see those hover boards used by the security guards in some malls but I never thought they can be tough toys too.

  6. CD-R King should share SM'S "We got it all for you" jingle. Lol. I honestly like the fact that even though yes, some of their products are really not original yet they revolutionize the idea and make a product much cheaper to the 'original' but yields the same benefits as well as features.

  8. IVe always wanted to try and see how this works. Now I've read your article I understand more about it. I'm curious how it will be in real life. Great article!

  9. These kind of gadgets terrify me! It reminds me of a Segway but with no handle which is also something you'd never catch me on. I can completely see why it's only for ages 14 + and I would probably up the age limit if it was up to me. The tips for safety on the irover are very good and I hope people read your article and/or the instructions before attempting this as I can imagine there will be a lot of accidents on this. Great share!

  10. Great post. It's important to always stay safe. While these hoverboards may be fun, practical and entertaining, it can also be dangerous if not cautious. A lot of kids here use this to get to and from school. Thanks for sharing.

  11. I feel that if this is only used indoors, I might end up breaking a lot of stuff inside the house. Hahaha! I remember that time when I was learning how to ride a bicycle when I was small. I suffered a lot of falls, too, but my mom said it's part of the learning process. -Claire Algarme

  13. They're so cheap now, anybody can get them! They really should take precautions like wearing helmets and other protective gear.

  14. This still look dangerous to me especially that we do not like to wear helmets and pads. I think it is better to get the segway instead. -katrina centeno

  15. These are making waves all over the world. I haven't tried using a hover board before, though. And I can't say I'm not interested. It's really important to make sure you follow the safety guidelines, not just for hover boards but for everything else as well.

  16. There's a warning about its US counterpart about causing fires. Is this one safer?

  17. It's really nice that people should be responsible in proper use of the irover. I hope people should also not be too dependent on the iRover as walking on one's power has its own benefits.

  18. I watch the news the other day, and see this product from the CD-R King Hover board, all are confiscated due to permit & manufacturer reasons.

  19. This has been controversial since last year. I even saw a local channel make a documentary about it but I think in any product, users should also exercise due diligence and extra care especially if a lot of kids are into it.

  20. Sometime back heard about some controversy using a hoverboard stating not good in a long run and kids shouldnt use it.

  21. I am glad CD R king came up with their own version of this. How much does it cost?

  22. I saw many children playing with this but I personally have not try it yet. I think parents should get the safety gadgets as well.

  23. So many funny videos of people playing rover and falling down because of their momentum. I like how you provide these safety precautions to remind everyone!

  24. Seen this product in action before but most riders don't use any guards on them and honestly i do feel insecure without anything protecting me while i ride on them.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Safety first! We cannot use this product without taking proper precautions. Head, hand and leg Guards are a must to use! Thanks for this post

  26. Seems like everyone has a hoverboard these days, however they have been so much news about people getting hurt that I'm going to pass on getting one for my kids for now.

  27. As its called Hoverboard or Swagway, its such a convenient thing. But personally I think it better walk distances that you take on it, coz that would a good form of exercise as well...

  28. It looks cool and probably I will try it. But I think I do not want to use it regularly. I would not want my kids to use it and we will worry about them falling.
