Update: CPSC Issues 2nd Recall on Hoverboards Over Fire / Explosions
November 15, 2017 – CPSC is recalling hoverboards from several companies for a 2nd time over concerns the devices could catch fire or explode. The alert followed at least 2 reports of fire associated with LayZ Board hoverboards, the most recent of which destroyed one home and damaged 4 others last month, CPSC said. It follows a fatal house fire in March.
What’s the Problem?
July 26, 2017 – The recall affects iRover hoverboards, also known as self-balancing scooters, with model numbers 87645 and 87644 listed on the bottom of the unit. The devices have 2 wheels on each end of the platform and the word “iRover” printed on the front outer casing, according to the CPSC recall announcement.
The agency said there have been at least 2 reports of battery packs in the recalled hoverboards overheating. To date, no injuries or property damage have been associated with the recall.
If you purchased a hoverboard that is affected by this recall, you should stop using it immediately and contact iRover for a free UL2272-certified replacement unit.
