Will Hoverboard still catch on fire these days in 2017?

In the past few years, hoverboard was struck by bitter controversies about unsafe as it catches fire. There had been different fatal stories involving hoverboards catching fires or exploding that disseminated all over the world which somehow resulted to a drop in the demand of self balancing scooters. However; this didn’t stop the manufacturers to shut down their businesses. Instead, some of them improved it by using high quality components. They have improved all factors that may cause self-balancing scooters to catch fire.

The news about hoverboard catching fire or exploding spread worldwide. Hoverboard catches fire due to sub-standard components, poor quality manufacturing, and low quality materials. The good thing that those news brought is that self balancing scooter went under tight scrutiny of US Consumer Product Safety Commission which made people realize that not all hoverboards will catch fire. The Consumer Product Safety Commission urged manufacturers, importers and retailers of all hoverboards to guarantee that the personal e-mobility devices they import, manufacture, distribute and sell will comply with their safety standards and requirements under UL2272. UL is devoted in keeping potentially unsafe e-mobility devices away from consumers. They also focused on the safety of battery-powered self-balancing scooters since most of the unfortunate incidents related to hoverboards are due to high energy density batteries like lithium-ion batteries. The batteries should not be sub standard or faulty; the battery packs are not broken. Safety circuits and even the chargers should all work together to function safely.
