The OFT is aware that many hoverboards will be wrapped ready for Christmas and is taking the opportunity to reiterate previous advice given to anyone who has bought one of these products.

  • DON’T use the product unless you are absolutely certain that it is safe – have regard to where you purchased it – Was it from a reputable source?
  • Never leave the device charging unattended – especially overnight: a faulty cut-off switch (designed to stop the battery from continuing to charge once fully charged) or a plug without a fuse, as seen in many products detained so far, could lead to the device overheating, exploding or catching fire.
