Hoverboards OK, but wouldn't warranty a defective charger

We bought two Strike hoverboards for my daughters. They're fun, but one of the chargers broke the second time we used it and their customer service staff refused to replace it (they said their warranty doesn't apply to chargers). For some reason they wanted me to dig out the receipt, but even after making me jump through all their hoops they still wanted $32 for a new charger. Also, their hoverboards are fun but they beep annoyingly and recalibrating doesn't wholly eliminate the problem. In summary, the hoverboards are fun, but their customer service and warranty service are terrible.
Just bought this last night for an early present and it works great. My 11 yr old loves it! Easy to use and charges fast. Haven't taken it outside yet to test the all terrain tires on gravel and grass but they look pretty good.
There's only a couple minor things to point out- In the manual, it says there is another cord, it does not come with another cord nor does it need it. I contacted customer service and they are now aware of this. I also noticed that the actual product, isn't the same as pictured on the box, in their manual or on their website. The indicator lights are horizontal, not vertical and the who bar lights up versus indicator dots as shown in the pictures. Customer service took note of these differences and reassured me we had the correct and ONLY model. This is not some old version as I thought we might have gotten. They said that the final product can differ than their renderings, which is fine, but I told them it might be a good idea to change the pictures to accurately represent the product.
Love it so far with a few of notes. We bought 2 of them at a discount with a coupon code. The first one was defective out of the box. We charged it and when testing it before giving it to the kids, we determined that the right wheel wasn't working. The left one was good. We exchanged it at Target and all was well with the the replacement. As I said, we purchased 2 so we were able to compare them and make a positive confirmation that the right wheel wasn't working on the one we exchanged.
Next, we wanted to get the unit into it's slowest mode since hoverboards were new to our family. Unfortunately, the instructions in the box were wrong. We looked online and found a newer version of the instructions that had a specific step that said you had to place the unit upended on one wheel to change the mode. The mode doesn't change while laying down on both wheels. That resolved the issue. Too bad they put an old manual in the boxes!
Lastly, the unit has the most annoying beeping that seems to start about 10 minutes after using. We originally thought it was a battery alarm, but the unit should certainly last more than 10 minutes. Plus we have charged it multiple times since purchase. Both of our units do it. I was unable to immediately find any reason for it through web searches, checking the manual, etc... It just starts beeping almost non-stop after a small period of time.
Best hover board by far!!! We searched and read countless reviews of so many hover boards. We happened to see this one in the store and looked it up to read reviews, which there we none, but it had the target bullseye choice so we bought it! I have to say it is awesome!!! It was purchased for my daughter for her 11th birthday. My son, who had never been on one, he is 7 learned in about 20 mins and is a pro now. My youngest who is 3 learned and is pretty good at it. So if you're looking for a great hover board this is a wonderful one for kids.
