6 Things to Know Before Buying a Hoverboard

When buying a self-balancing scooter, commonly known as a Hoverboard, it is easy to get overwhelmed with the many options, vendors, and brands on the market. Not all hoverboards are equal. Just because they look similar on the outside, doesn’t mean they are the same on the inside. Hoverboards can be awesomely different when it comes to the components “under-the-hood.” There are many options to choose from, and special considerations for each. So how do you know if you are getting a deal or getting robbed?

1: Find a Specialist. First and most importantly, hedge your bet by buying from a reputable vendor. When you buy from Amazon, eBay, or Craigslist, you might get a quality product, or you might not. These companies just provide a way for individuals to sell their products to large audiences, so it can be a risky purchase, depending on the nature of the seller. Even if the listing specifies all of the best components, you are relying on the seller’s honesty to get a quality product. In these cases, we strongly recommend you remove the cover upon receipt and at a minimum, inspect the battery. It should have a sticker on it that states the cell-brand and the country of manufacture. If you discover a discrepancy, you may be limited in your ability to get a compensation or replacement from the vendor, as you will be working through a third party and have to deal with the red-tape associated with that. If you buy directly from a store that specializes in hoverboards, however, there is much more accountability, and you can contact the seller directly if there is a problem. As an added bonus, without all those listing fees, the prices are often lower at independent stores as well.

2: Find out about the Return Policy. A company with solid products will be proud of it, and offer a beefy return policy. 30 days is standard. Any less than that, and buyer beware – you may be at risk of buying a lemon.

3: Get a Good Battery. Require that your hoverboard contains a Samsung or LG battery. The battery is the heart of a hoverboard, and more-so than any other option, you need to make sure you are getting a good one. Lithium Ion batteries are very powerful, and more volatile than other kinds of rechargeable batteries. They do not charge well in extreme heat or cold, and when discharged too much, or overcharged, they can get hot and catch on fire. Samsung has been in the battery and consumer electronics business for decades, and they make a good hoverboard battery with proper circuitry to cut off charging at the proper time and ensure an even charge across all cells. LG batteries are similar in this regard. They are safer batteries, and will stand up to more charge cycles than a generic battery made by a factory that doesn’t have the same quality control guidelines.

4: Wheel size matters. If you use your hoverboard mostly indoors, any of them will suffice, but if you are outdoors, think about how many cracks or bumps you will encounter. The 6.5 inch hub will handle up to quarter inch bumps pretty well, but if they are frequent or larger than that, the larger 8 inch wheels help. If you are using your hoverboard to go larger distances, a 10 inch hub will be even more comfortable yet. So this decision becomes a balance between comfort and portability. For most users, we think the 8 inch wheels are just about perfect.

5: Consider your replacement parts. If something breaks, it helps to have a company with factory connections, that can talk to the engineers to help you troubleshoot the problem. Once the problem is diagnosed, you will probably need replacement parts. If you work with a company that can provide them, you will not have not wasted all of your money on a lemon that can’t be repaired.

6: Know the motor wattage. Typically, the smaller the hoverboard wheel, the smaller the motor inside. This does not affect performance, speed, weight limit, or longevity; it is simply that you want it to be paired properly, or you may have too much or too little torque for your wheels, making it harder to ride. We find that for a responsive, yet easy to control ride, 500 total watts is a good target for the 6.5 inch wheel, 600 is good for the 8 inch, and 700 is ideal for the 10 inch. Divide these numbers by two to get the ideal wattage per wheel. If the seller doesn’t know the answers to these questions, you might want to shop around a bit.

That’s about it! Consider the store’s reputation, their return policy, the battery type, the wheel size, whether or not they have replacement parts, and the hoverboard’s wattage. These 6 considerations will help you buy a high quality hoverboard that provides many years of enjoyment and convenience. Happy hoverboarding!

Using A Car Buying Agent Or Car Broker To Buy Your Next Car

The world of car retailing is changing, and it means good news for car buyers. The traditional way of buying a car from a dealer’s showroom has been around forever, and it’s a game where the playing field is tilted heavily in the dealer’s favour. The dealer knows all of the numbers involved much better than the buyer, and so knows exactly where margins can be increased and reduced to maximise their profits while still appearing to provide a good deal.

It’s a bit like a casino; the punters at the tables may have a few individual wins here and there, but overall the house always wins. Buying a car from a dealer is similar, in that you might get them to drop the car’s price slightly or throw in some extras, but they get it all back again on the finance package or the other extras you hadn’t realised you even needed (but were convinced by the salesman that they were absolutely essential).

The internet has gone some way to helping buyers, in that you can easily check prices from several different dealerships all over the country. But that’s still only a starting point; a dealer will often be happy to cut the price on a car if they can make it up elsewhere, and it becomes very difficult to stay on top of the negotiations when you have a new car, your part-exchange (trade-in), finance, insurance, options and accessories all making up the final numbers. The dealer is expert at juggling all these balls at once, and they know exactly how much they are making from each part of the overall deal. The customer, usually, is completely in the dark as to how much of a deal they are really getting.

More and more car buyers are now turning to a car buying agent or car broker to help them manage their car purchasing. Here the buyer gets to play on a level field with the dealer, as the car buying agent or car broker usually has the same knowledge and expertise as the dealer to be able to negotiate on every aspect of the deal to the advantage of the buyer.

The other advantage of using a car broker or car buying agent is that it saves you an enormous amount of time. Researching cars and trekking all over town to visit dealerships, getting quotes from different dealers on different models and comparing all the information is a tremendously laborious exercise. A car buying agent or car broker can take car of all the running around and allow you to concentrate on your job or enjoy your recreational time.

So what exactly does a car buying agent or a car broker do?

Let’s explain the difference between a car buying agent and a car broker.

With a car broker, you provide as much detail as you can about the car you are looking for, and the broker sources a vehicle which matches your desired specification as closely as possible.

A car buying agent offers a more comprehensive overall service, usually involving specific advice and recommendations on choosing a car and its specification to suit your needs, as well as the sourcing of the chosen vehicle. If you are not sure on the best sort of car for your needs, a car buying agent’s advice can be far more valuable than the savings he or she may be able to get from the dealer. Choosing a more suitable car can be worth a considerable saving over your whole ownership period, even if the deal on the car’s price is not as significant. Many people have bought a car completely unsuitable for their needs, and using a car broker won’t prevent that. A good car buying agent, however, will help you ensure that you are choosing a car which will do everything you need for as long as you own it.

Fees

Brokers and agents make their money from either a fee charged to the client for their service, and/or a payment or commission from the dealer. This is an important point for you as a buyer; if your broker is being paid by a dealer, they are ultimately working for the dealer rather than for you, meaning they may not be acting in your best interests to secure the best car available at the best price possible.

To ensure that your agent is acting in your best interests and not the dealer’s, you should always look for a car buying agent or car broker who has a clear fee structure and does not take payments or commissions from the selling dealer. The fees should be clearly explained, easily understandable, and relate to the service provided. If a broker advertises their services as being free, then it almost certainly means they are being paid a commission or ‘finder’s fee’ by the dealership. If an agent or broker offers their advice as free, it is unlikely to be a properly detailed and analytical report which covers every aspect of your driving needs.

A car broker will normally charge a fee based on the value of the car they are sourcing. If this is the case, you should be clearly aware of their fee structure before you commence – for example, if the relevant price threshold on their fee structure is £30,000, then a car costing £30,001 may mean a much larger fee for the broker than a car costing £29,999.

Some agents or brokers will charge a flat fee for their services, and some may charge a fee based on the level of discount they achieve from the advertised price. This means that the more money you save, the more they will make and gives you some reassurance that they are acting in your best interests.

With a car buying agent, there will normally be a fee for their advice and expertise, and a separate fee for sourcing a vehicle. Again, you should be aware of how their pricing works, but don’t be put off by the idea of paying for expert advice as it may save you thousands in the long term. You may even use a car buying agent for advice on choosing a car but handle the purchase yourself. This is often the case with company car drivers, who have leasing arrangements in place at their workplace but don’t know which car to lease.

In summary, a car broker or car buying agent can make the process of buying a car much more appealing and advantageous to the average consumer, saving considerable time and potentially a lot of money.

Laptop Buying Guide – Choosing One That's Right For Your Needs

Given their portability, increased performance, and lower cost, laptops have become the computer of choice, gradually replacing desktop systems. Need a new laptop? Here are the key items and features to look for before you make your next purchase.

RAM / Memory
Every computer comes with a certain amount of physical memory (how much information and data it can store). Typically, laptops are limited compared to desks when it comes to the amount of memory they have. Determine the maximum memory the system can handle and if a memory upgrade can be completed by you or needs to be installed by a technician. 2GB is recommended for Windows Vista or Mac OS X while 512MB is suitable for all other Windows and Mac operating systems. Make sure to take into account the applications you plan on using the most – this will have an effect on how much RAM you'll need.

Size / Weight
While a light, ultra-portable laptop is ideal if you're on the move frequently, you may have to sacrifice certain things such as a disk drive (much like the Apple MacBook Air). On the contrary, you do not want the ultimate performance laptop if it's inconvenient or inconvenient to tote around.

Display Size
Unlike desktop screens, laptops have thin, liquid-crystal displays – or LCDs. These displays determine the brightness, color, and sharpness of the screen. Notebook LCD sizes range from 10 inches to 20 inches; 14 inch or larger is usually recommended for LCD screens. Compare different screen sizes at your local dealer and be aware that the size of the screen will directly effect the overall weight of the system.

Hard Drives
A hard drive allows you to save and store programs and files for as long as you want (or at least for the life of the drive). How much storage space you think you'll need will determine the amount of space you'll want to get. 60GB to 80GB is reliably standard on most budget laptops and should be plenty, unless you plan on storing lots of music files, movies, and digital photos. If that's the case, look into a system that offers much more space or research external hard drive alternatives.

Battery Life
What good is a portable laptop if you can only get one hour out of it on a single charge? Check out the manufacturer's listed battery life and look for laptops that offer media bays that can also serve as an extra battery slot. At the very least, you should be able to get 2 hours of battery life.

Check out Your Local Dealer
Do your homework! Check out local computer dealers and stores to research and handle different models in person. This is especially ideal if size and weight of the system is of the utmost importance to you.

Read Consumer Product Reviews
Consumer product reviews can offer a wealth of information regarding the laptops you are interested in. Users share the pros, cons, and other miscellaneous information regarding various systems, typically providing you with additional information to help you make the right purchase.

Buying a Computer – What to Look For

When you buy computer sets, you will most likely be purchasing them from computer sales in your area. There are a lot of computer special deals these days, since a lot of computer stores do need to get rid of their old stock and create faster turnover rates.

For this reason you may be able to score a good deal if you buy computer bundles which already include speakers, carrying cases, cooling fans and microphones.

Computer sales typically feature both laptops and desks of various sizes, brands and features. If you plan to purchase your new computer from computer sales, make sure you still get value for the money you spend, no matter how discounted the price may already be.

Computer special deals usually include a lot of accessories and you might want to ask the manager if you can add just one more accessory before you finally purchase the bundle.

Most stores will let you have one more computer item especially if it is the end of a season and new stocks are coming in. You might want to add computer special equipment such as a keyboard vacuum cleaner or a monitor glare remover.

In the event that they do not include the extra item, you can buy computer accessories at another time when another sale occurs. There are a few things you need to look for when buying a computer on sale. The most important thing to look for is minimal scratches. Some stores sell cheap PCs that have been used as customer samples.

These models are usually full of scratches and may be damaged in other ways as well. Make sure the PC you do finally end up with is brand new in its box. Read up on the latest news about brands and models.

Sudden price drops on certain models may mean that the battery pack on this certain PC overheats and breaks fairly quickly. Knowing the latest news and reading up on the latest customer feedback will help you buy safely.

At the end of the day, remember that knowledge is power. Look for good, established brands rather than unknown brands. You should also know the different brand names of one brand. For example, Lenovo is the more affordable version of IBM, and knowing this means you can get a great PC for less.

How Power Savers Work – Basic Buying Tips

Can you really save 40% on your electricity bills by plugging a small box into your AC socket?

In the past six month a number of products have been advertised on TV and online which seem too good to be true. I’d like to explain the reality of these exciting claims and give you a layman’s understanding of how Power Savers work.

A Power Saver is a device which you plug in to your power socket. Apparently just by keeping the device connected it will immediately reduce your power consumption. Typical claims are savings between 25% and 40%.

The technology behind Power Saver units comes from German research coupled with Asian manufacturing and it is based on sound scientific principles.

Electricity is not stable. When electricity flows the voltage can rise and fall all the time. The rises in voltage are known as ‘spikes’ and they cannot be used by your appliances at all. All these spikes do is waste your electricity. These power spikes also convert electrical energy into heat energy which leaks power from your circuit. Not only that but the heat will also do long-term danage to your wiring and to your appliances.

There are a few Power Saver models on the market but they all work along the same principle. They store the electricity inside of it using a system of capacitors and they release it in a smoother way to normal without the spikes. The systems also automatically remove carbon from the circuit which also encourages a smoother electrical flow. This means that you will have less power spikes. More of the electricity flowing around your circuit can be used to power your appliances than before.

There are many factors which do affect the efficiency of your Power Saver. The device works immediately after plugging it in although it can take as long as 8 days before it has adjusted itself for peak performance. The rate of savings will depend on what kind of appliances you have connected. All appliances are different but expect savings of up to 25% on lights, 30% on air-conditioning units and up to 35% on other appliances.

The highest savings will be in areas where voltage supply is less stable. Locations close to shops, restaurants and light industries tend to gain additional savings from Power Saver devices.

So how can you be sure that your Power Saver is working correctly?

Most often Power Savers come fitted with a light to indicate that it is working. If you have access to an electricity meter then you should see it immediately slowing down. Assuming that the light is on and that you leave the device unattended you can expect savings immediately. Be aware that often electricity companies will not take meter readings each month. Often bills are calculated on monthly averages which self-correct over time so please be aware of that in using your bill as a guide.

Finally, it is highly recommended to order your Power Savers from companies offering 100% guarantees for longer than 30 days. Remember that 30 days may not be sufficient time to truly know if the device is working as effectively as you expect. Try to work with companies that extend their guarantee dates to at least 60 day which gives you a much longer period to assess the benefits.
