Reduce Fuel Costs and Help Save the Environment With the Hover-1 Electric Scooter

Gas prices — are we right? They’re higher than ever. And, thanks to inflation, you can bet your bottom dollar that it’ll go up even more as time goes on, which is why everyone’s looking for ways to save money at the pump. A particularly great way might be with this electric self-balancing scooter, which is offered this week at 43 percent off the MSRP.

The Hover-1 makes an awesome substitute for a gas-guzzling car, especially for anyone that lives in an urban area with a reasonably nice climate. Instead of driving around everywhere and wasting money on fuel while getting frustrated by traffic, you just charge up this self-balancing scooter, throw on a helmet (safety first!), and go. 

More popularly known as hoverboards, these fun little devices are built tough and are relatively lightweight. They come with Bluetooth connectivity so riders can control the lights, ride level, and music, they can travel up to 6 miles on a single charge, and they’ll carry a load of up to 220lbs. They also feature a top speed of 7 miles per hour — which, we admit, doesn’t sound very fast but, if you were to compare it to walking, it’s basically greased lightning.

The units being offered here are all factory remanufactured. That means that every single one has been inspected and confirmed to be in like-new condition, just like it would have come brand new off the floor. In a lot of cases, the boxes these units came in were either opened by mistake or for inspections, which means they can’t legally be sold as “new,” hence the “factory remanufactured” label and the lower price.

But their loss is totally your gain. When you consider how much you’re spending a month on gas — not to mention car repairs and insurance — then it makes a lot of sense to switch to something that’s a little more cost-effective. And since the Hover-1 is on sale for just $129.99, the timing may never be better.
