Hoverboard Safety is our most important aspect of our business model. However, we’re aware of a number of cheap, imitation boards for sale by a number of retailers across the UK. Due to this, most (not all) of these boards are dangerous and carry a risk of overheating and explosion.
The main issues are around:
- Cheap batteries
- Lack of a cut-off switch in the battery which prevents over charging
- Lack of fuses in the plugs
The chargers should also have light indication letting you know your Hoverboard is charged. Once the light on our chargers goes from red to green, the charging is ceased and it’s time to remove the charger from your Hoverboard. Both the battery cut off and the fuse would have to fail to cause overheating and explosions. To minimise this risk you can ensure you supervise the Swegway whilst charging and remove as soon as the battery charger light is illuminated green.
