Hoverboards Exploding Off The Market!

(Last Updated On: February 26, 2016)

Hover boards were introduced to the market with a bang. This however took a turn when the US government rendered the devices currently in the market unsafe. The hoverboards were recalled for being explosive.


This caused a lot of retailers like Amazon to quickly though quietly stop selling them.

Many buyers sought to return them and get their money back but it isn’t clear if they will be granted refunds.

“Consumers risk serious injury or death if their self-balancing scooters ignite and burn,” the Consumer Product Safety Commission in the United States said. This followed reports they had received complaints from consumers in 24 states, of 52 self-balancing scooter fires resulting in over $2 million in property damage, including the destruction of two homes and an automobile.”

All good things come to an end, huh?
