Amazon Pulls Hoverboards Due to Safety Fears


Amazon has decided to remove hoverboards from its website after several reports of explosions, fires and injuries from boards by various manufacturers.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says they are currently investigating 10 reports of accidents as a result of hoverboards.

AmazonĀ“s safety page had previously warned that the boards can cause problems. "In rare cases, [...] batteries can overheat, catch fire, or explode". Also the 3 leading U.S. airlines banned the devices due to concerns about potential fires on flights.
