Hoveboard Dangers | Accent by Chubb

  1. 1. Hoverboard Dangers Hoverboards can be a dangerous toy.
  2. 2. Hoverboards are fun, one of the trendiest gift items of 2015, and unfortunately, potentially dangerous. Plenty of hoverboard accidents have occurred due to user failure, such as some well-publicized celebrity falls, but recent reports attribute many of the worst accidents not to the hoverboard user or the hoverboard itself, but to the lithium ion battery that powers it.
  3. 3. According to CNET, the lithium batteries contain flammable liquid, and many hoverboards have been made cheaply, or even by factories manufacturing counterfeit brand-name toys—or using cut-rate batteries. And, as Wired reported, any lithium ion battery is more likely to explode when it gets bumped around, which will inevitably happen with a hoverboard. Lithium Batteries
  4. 4. As we noted in a piece on not-so-safe tech gifts last December, some tech gifts—such as hoverboards— are so new, there are no safety standards attached to them. But hoverboards were outlawed in New York state prior to Christmas, have been banned by more than 60 airlines, and are prohibited on a number of college campuses.
  5. 5. Are all hoverboards dangerous? Is it possible to purchase a safe hoverboard? While no toy can be guaranteed accident-free, there are precautions you can take to buy a safer hoverboard, and specifically to help avoid some of the battery fires that have endangered other consumers. The Safest Hoverboards
  6. 6. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recommends buying hoverboards at a trusted retailer, not from mall kiosks or websites. Look for a UL or ETL emblem on the toy or on the package to show that the hoverboard has been inspected by an independent lab for safety. (Remember, of course, that counterfeiters sometimes manufacture products with fake emblems.)
  7. 7. Finally, if you already have one—and operate it in a city where it’s still legal—take some safety precautions of your own. The CPSC recommends never charging a hoverboard overnight or longer than the owner’s manual directs; keep it away from flammable objects; and let it cool for an hour after you use it before charging it again.
