I’m very upset , ordered a hoverboard for my daughter for Christmas and I received it very quickly but it was the wrong colour , couldn’t get hold of them at all to be able to let them no , they don’t even have a phone number you can call !! Finally someone replies via email and they said the colour had run out but they would upgrade it which I agreed and was very happy about . Still I haven’t received it and as a single parent who struggles this time of year I am very worried I’m not going to receive it and that’s £150 down the drain. If someone from Rolab sees this PLEASE get back to me ASAP

I bought a C1 Black Swegway for my sons birthday and followed the manual charged the hoverboard for 2 hours but the light on the charger never turned green. However the hoverboard showed full green. The board lasted 15 minutes use before the battery died. So charged again but the light on the charger never turned green but charged for under 3 hours as per the manuals instructions again the battery only lasted 15 Minutes of use. Tried the phone number but it stated it was for sales only and the automated system gave option of voice mail as it said all operators busy before cutting me off. I have sent an email to support but no reply and have tried to phone again with same response.

When my son first said he would like to buy a Hover board with his Birthday money, I didn't really know where to start. I agree with some of the other reviews, "It's an absolute minefield out there ! " I researched the internet for hours and luckily for me, I stumbled upon Rolab. A very professional website with all the information you require and all your questions answered. As with everyone else it arrived the next day, early enough for me to get it on charge ready to use when my son got home from school. I can't begin to tell you how happy my son is !! I quote " Dad ! It's the best present I've ever had. Its sick ! " ( That means good ). This product is so good, I have just ordered a second one for my eldest son. Apparently Hover board football is the next big thing. Would highly recommend ! A great product and great value for money. More importantly, its Certification gives you peace of mind.

Ordered for Son's 13th birthday, he wanted one 18M back but there was so much bad press about that we decided not to buy. However with all the CE markings and certificates of conformity Rolab offered together with a very competitive price tag we got one. Best thing we have ever bought it is a fantastic piece of engineering and the quality shows. Spot on and a reputable distributor to complement a fantastic bit of kit.

When buying a Hoverboard / Swegway, I felt it was a bit of a minefield. There are so many Company's selling similar looking boards, which one is right? I have an 8 year old who so wanted a Hoverboard. I contacted Rolab about 5 times before purchasing. I needed clarification on the Minimum weight and also safety. They replied back promptly and I found them very professional. The delivery was quick and the board looks great.

My heart is now sinking as I read some of the other poor reviews. I have by my own fault ordered 2 R1s instead of the 1 wanted for my son's birthday. I therefore want to return one of them. I have received no email to even confirm the original order and consequently am unable to send back. Without a confirmation email I have no warranty either. There has been no response to my phone messages left or emails sent. Thank you to Rolab. 10 days on and I have now received correspondence, returned the boards and received a full refund. I do hope Rolab will look at improving their means of contact and response time to future queries from others.

Was really hesitant in buying one for my son after reading about the hoverboards catching fire. Decided to buy one from the uk. As rolab had good reviews and the price was reasonable, I bought one. Having had it for just over a month my son loves it and so does the whole family. Really impressed by the battery life. Thank you Rolab...

it's a fun alternative to walking, it's so fun to try new things, i love the speed and the agility, it's very safe compare to other models that i've tried and my favourite part is the bluetooth sound speaker and lights.

Rolab provided a great service. The item was received in a speedy manner and very well packaged. It works perfectly. I would caution anyone getting one for their child though! My daughter received hers for her 11th birthday after months of asking for one, and she was on it for 5 minutes, fell off and broke her wrist! After 4 weeks in plaster she is now tentatively getting back on it but I would advise any parent to also purchase wrist guards and other protective equipment! None of this is Rolabs fault though! They provided a great service and I would recommend them.
