When CD-R King, our friendly One Stop Shop launched their version of the Hover board branded as iRover, it created a buzz. But as always, whenever there is a sudden rise of popularity about something, negative news would never be out of the scene. Suddenly, issues popped out saying that sales of the product must be stopped and should be banned in the Philippines particularly because owning an iRover is dangerous, therefore having one is not advisable as it is not really safe.

Question lies as how dangerous is really dangerous to us? Is it really not safe?

In my humble opinion, usage of any product only becomes dangerous when one does not  even know the do's and don'ts and doesn't totally understand how a product truly works. I can compare this to one's knowledge for every law. Isn't it that each one of us is required to know the law because ignorance excuses no one. And so is true with owning an iRover. One must be responsible enough to know every safety information one could get about it. 

The cool and stylish appeal of the iRover could always be mistaken as a toy. It is true, once you are on it, your iRover / hoverboard can be so fun to play with, however, apparently it is not a toy, so hush-hush you guys.

Because CD-R King loves you and value your safety, here's an insightful iRover safety usage from them:

  • As per DTI’s consumer’s safety requirement, you have to know that the gadget is intended for age 14 and above. I REPEAT, 14 YEARS AND ABOVE ONLEEEEEH. This should be clear to all hoverboard enthusiasts.
  • As a two wheeled product, iRover users must ALWAYS exercise proper care by wearing protective gears such as helmets, wrist guards, elbow and knee pads. 

  • For first-time users, one should be in front of a sturdy handle to achieve balance in riding the iRover. Test your balance by slowly leaning back to move backwards. Gently lean forward to thrust in a slow mode forward. In maneuvering towards left, slightly put weight on the right portion of iRover, while in turning right the left portion should bear more weight.
  • Bear in mind that you have to always start working on a slow and steady pace until conquering the iRover to prevent accident. 
  • It is also advisable that iRover should ideally be for indoor use only.
  • Remember: as with any batteries, DO NOT OVER CHARGE. Battery Recharging is 6 hours and should be done with extreme pre-caution with the presence of an adult.
All these tips are clearly seen on the box of the iRover so as to provide each consumers the safety pre-cautionary measures to everyone. CD-R King made this sure for everyones safety. 

Achieve balance everyday, own an iROver !
