Ok, so unless you live under a rock you know that the hottest gift on all the kids’ lists this year is a personal electric scooter – also known as a Rolbot, a Hoverboard, a Skywalker, a hands-free Segway, or a personal transporter.  Whatever you want to call them, everybody wants one, and I had to find out why.  So I did some research to find the best one out there for the best price, tested…
