Been Dreaming of a Hoverboard? This One Is Only $88 at Walmart

Fluxx FX3 Hoverboard and Self Balancing Scooter

So many of us have been waiting for the moment those hoverboards from Back to Future become real. While there are similar devices available, questionably called hoverboards, and they’ve improved over time, the one we want just isn’t here yet. That’s okay because what we do have is pretty cool, anyway.

Like the Fluxx FX3 Hoverboard that Walmart has on sale right now for over half off. It’s a self-balancing scooter with some big wheels, and bright LED headlights. You can get it for $88 with free shipping in black, blue, pink, or teal. A fantastic deal wouldn’t you say?

The Fluxx FX3 can support up to 176 pounds and has a max speed of up to 6.2 miles per hour. Thanks to dual 200-watt motors — 400 watts total — and a highly efficient battery, there’s plenty of power on display. It can ride for up to 3.1 miles at a time, on just a single charge, and the design of the board means it can go in any direction and rotate 360 degrees locally. Because it’s a slower board overall, you can use it safely indoors and out, although you’ll need plenty of room!

LEDs built into the wheels and the board light up at night, illuminating the roads or sidewalks. They also make it easier to position your feet on the board in low-light conditions. The 6.5-inch large wheels are big enough to handle most terrain, and certainly offer a smooth ride on asphalt. The intelligent self-balancing system will keep the rider level and safe during a trip. Just hop on and go! It’s a great system to travel short distances faster than walking or to give your sore feet a break.

Walmart is offering the Fluxx FX3 Hoverboard for $111 off, normally $199, so you’re getting it for $88 with free shipping. That’s an insane deal, especially if you look at comparable boards which are much more expensive. Plus, it comes in several colors including black, blue, pink, and teal, and all of them are on sale for $88.

Do you need an electric trike? We tested one out to see
Want to ride an e-trike? This model from Sixthreezero is tons of fun
The e-trike from Sixthreezero.

The tricycle never really took off. With all do respect to the tiny bikes for toddlers and motorcycle sidecars, the three-wheeler never really went mainstream. But there's a new electric trike in town looking to change the way we view the bike with an extra wheel.

The bike in question is the EVRYjourney electric tricycle from Sixthreezero. Combing through the marketing material, it's easy to assume this model is for women as that's pretty much all that's pictured on the website, but it's not gender specific (the sloped frame does resemble the rather antiquated "traditional" women's frame, originally built to handle dresses). More than anything, being a trike, it's more for the kid residing in us.

We’ve tested ’em all: These are the best portable solar generators of 2023
Our expert recommends the best solar generators of 2023
Jackery 3000 Pro.

The time was when consumer-grade solar gear wasn’t all that practical, but over the past few years the tech has developed rapidly, becoming not only highly useful but increasingly affordable. Today, solar generators and portable power stations are go-to mobile juice solutions for van-lifers and campers, temporary off-grid worksites, travel photographers and drone operators, and at-home backup power for when the lights go out.

I’ve spent years testing solar-powered generators, and over the past six months, I’ve looked at the latest releases from both top, established brands and lesser-known newcomers. When I’ve come to learn is that while solar generators don’t vary dramatically in regards to the core concept, different models from different brands tend to be tailor-fit to different intentions. To that end, here are the best solar generator options for a variety of purposes.
Best overall: Jackery 3000 Pro
Pictured at the top of this article, Jackery has been a top name in the solar generator field for a while now, and with their latest release – the 3000 Pro – they do pretty much everything right. It manages to deliver both outstanding capacity (3,024 Wh) and outstanding portability. At just shy of 64 pounds, it’s not exactly light, but the wheels and retractable handle make it effortless to cart around, while its integrated handles and perfectly boxed shape make it easy to lift and store (or fit into a van build). It charges fast (2.4 hours via wall outlet or 3-4 hours via ideal solar conditions), has solid wattage output (3,000 W), and is sturdily built. While it’s arguably a bit overkill for the average users, anyone who wants lots of capacity will love the 3000 Pro.
