LOS ANGELES, June 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Earlier this year, Underwriters Laboratories (UL) introduced UL2272, setting strict new standards for the self-balancing scooter industry. As an industry leader, Swagway, LLC, makers of the original "hands-free smart board," is excited to announce the launch of SWAGTRON, its next generation model of self-balancing scooters. SWAGTRON is the only product to pass UL's original 10-ton battery crush test and UL's rigorous safety testing and includes a new UL classified battery pack. The new SWAGTRON stands above its competitors as the safest and most advanced self-balancing scooter on the market.
As safety continues to remain a top priority for Swagway, in addition to SWAGTRON's UL2272 and UN38.3 certifications, Swagway, LLC invested its resources into extensive research and development to set a new standard for an unprecedented level of safety and function for the self-balancing scooter industry.
The most impressive feature of SWAGTRON is the patented "SentryShield" battery chamber, which provides multi-layer protection with an airtight aluminum chamber and a state-of-the-art Smart Battery Management System (BMS). This Smart BMS constantly monitors overvoltage, temperature increases, overcharging of the battery, overcurrent and short circuit protection.
In addition to the high quality components and certifications included in prior models, SWAGTRON's T1 and T3 models boast upgraded motor and gear stabilization for sturdier control with downhill traction and high-speed use, movement and battery indicator lights, incombustible exterior shell and foot pedals with improved grip, high grade aluminum wheels with superior traction tires and two different mode options for ease of learning and use - learning mode and standard mode.
The T3 model also allows for a third advanced mode controlled from a smartphone app for iOS or Android, which removes all speed restrictions for seasoned riders. The SWAGTRON app also lets you check your route history, battery status details and more. The new re-design even has an attached carrying handle, for convenient toting when not riding.
The first brand also approved to be shipped under the UL label into the USA, SWAGTRON is available for retail starting today, June 1, 2016 at Swagway.com and Modell's Sporting Goods. Pre-orders will also begin today on BestBuy.com and will be available at Best Buy stores, BJ's Wholesale Club and BJs.com, in the weeks to follow. The SWAGTRON is also coming soon to other major retailers nationwide.
And like the original Swagway, this safer, lighter, smoother and smarter SWAGTRON comes with a 1year manufacturer warranty. The SWAGTRON is available in Black, White, Red, Blue, Pink and Gold colors, and has an MSRP of $499 for the T1 and $599 for the T3.
From the makers of Swagway, the original "hands-free smart board," SWAGTRON is the next generation model of Swagway with enhanced features for both safety and function. Highlights include the SentryShield, a patented aluminum battery chamber with multi-layered protection and the proprietary polycarbonate shell and flame retardant pedals. The SWAGTRON is also the first in the world to receive the UL2272 certification in its category and is the world's first self-balancing scooter approved under the UL label to retail in the USA. It is also the only self balancing scooter product in the world to pass the 10-ton crush test.
A zero emissions product, the SWAGTRON is environmentally friendly and adheres to all required environmental standards and certifications – UN38.3, FCC, CE, RohS and Prop 65. An industry leader in leisure transportation, the SWAGTRON can travel up to 20 miles per charge depending on weight of rider and terrain and has a max weight limit of 220 lbs.
