At HOVERBOARD PRO we pride ourselves in having genuine UK Swegways and UL Certified Hoverboards for sale. However, if consumers are not careful they could purchase from a non-verified and non-safe seller. This can cause harm to your board and even a danger to life. Unsafe Hoverboards can:

  • Start smoking
  • Catch on fire
  • Destroy private property

Although the media were reporting such incidents, very little is said about the reasons behind those misfortunate events.

Faulty, poor quality Hoverboards which were not checked (and certified) according to rigid
standards. This is the main cause of such problems.

To help our loyal customers, we personally reviewed more than 50 Self-Balancing Scooters on the market. During this time, we found that in order to stay safe with a Hoverboard, there are certain requirements it needing to be met.

First of all [and this is the most important] it needs to be up to UL 2272 safety standard. This is essentially Hoverboard-specific.

This type of UL Certification checks the quality of the electrical circuitry so that the risk of Hoverboards starting to smoke [and catch on fire] is minimised.

Secondly, we recommend you specifically check the charger to ensure that it is compliant with UL 60950. Furthermore, the batteries should also be compliant with UN 38.3 and UL 1642.
