There Are No Safe Hoverboards
Great Scot - there are currently no "safe" so-called "hoverboards" for sale to the public, so says Underwriters Laboratories Consumer Safety Director John Drengenberg; none have yet to pass that safety certification, regardless of what labels may be on the device.
The current crop of hoverboards, which appear to be segues with no handle, have been subject to a rather alarming number of fires and severe overheating.
EngadgetImports could be seized upon entry in the US and those already sold locally could be recalled. That applies to all hoverboards at the moment, since no model has passed muster yet. Swagway, one of the biggest brands, has told customers to stop using its boards in the meantime.
