200,000+ Hoverboards Recalled Due to Battery Fire Risk; “In some instances, there was smoke or fire”

By B.N. Frank

So many electronics, so many recalls due to battery fires.  Of course, this isn’t the first hoverboard recall due to battery fires.  Maybe now people will finally stop buying them for themselves and their kids.

From ABC30:

Over 200K Razor hoverboards recalled due to fire risk

Hoverboards sold at Walmart, Target

More than 200,000 hoverboards sold at several retailers in-store and online are being recalled because they can catch on fire.

The issue is with a removable battery pack in the Hovertrax 2.0 Hoverboards made by Razor USA.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said it has reports of more than 20 hoverboards with lithium-ion battery packs overheating.

In some instances, there was smoke or fire.

No injuries have been reported.

The recall affects those hoverboards sold between September 2016 and August of 2017.

They were sold at Walmart, Target, Toys “R” Us and through online retailers.

Customers who have these hoverboards are asked to contact Razor USA for information on how to return the product.

In other battery fire recall news, both GM and Hyundai have recalled their Electric Vehicles (EVs) due to risks (see 1, 2, 3).
