Along with serious injuries to the consumers, major house fires have been reported from hoverboard explosions. The leading cause of these malfunctions are due to the cheap lithium ion batteries, which pose as fire hazards during charging as well as riding the hoverboard.
As a preventative measure, over 60 airlines have banned these combustible devices for both carry-on and checked-in luggage.
Viral videos of hoverboard "fails" can be found all over the web, warning users of the many hazards. While these viral videos are mostly made to make us laugh, it is imperative to be careful with these devices. Ultimately, the hoverboard is technology that has yet to be perfected. If you are somehow still inclined to purchase a hoverboard, we urge you to stick with big name manufacturers with higher prices.
