When it comes to safety on hoverboards one must take the precautions necessary to avoid injury. They have been numerous reports of injuries and the latest addition to the hazardous conditions is that the hoverboard are exploding and catching on fire. In a recent video by ABC News it documents the hazardous conditions of some of the lithium ion batteries. it seems that certain people have experienced the hoverboard they own burst into flames and catch on fire. It is recommended to make sure that you keep the hoverboard in a dry place away from fabrics and any flammable textile when charging. We’ve all experienced the hype of the self balancing scooter but we now need to look beyond the hype and become more responsible. As we all know a lot of these hover boards are made in China and their construction can be questionable once we pass the phase of sensationalism. What I mean by that is once we all become aware of the defected, hazardous conditions, and malfunctions, we can then build a standard profile on what to expect from a healthy hoverboard. We shouldn’t confuse quality craftsmanship with a trendy moment in time. I have reviewed U.S. certified producers that use Samsung core batteries. With millions of hoverboards being sold there had to be some defective ones and this is what is beginning to surface in the media.
Since safety is an issue we urge you to add safety equipment to your riding gear so that you can protect yourself and your family from injury. We cannot make the assumption that the hoverboard is a toy it must be treated like a real vehicle because of the speed and exposure to injury.In the perspective of the razor scooter era it must be noted that at least the Razor scooter had handlebars and some sort of controlling function beyond the bipedal use. A skateboard is not a motorized vehicle and people have suffered horrific injuries riding them. So please use your best judgement when riding a hoverboard and do not take it lightly because safety must come first. If you know for a fact that you received a hoverboard from China you need to take the proper safety precautions and make sure when it is charging it is not around any fabric or anything that is flammable.
