How to choose a safe hoverboard?-- change your charger to our UL charger2016-01-27

As the latest news, Chicago customs officers seize more than 16,000 counterfeit hoverboards. You need to identify if your hoverboards are safe for using. What should you do for you and your family’s safety.

William Ferrara, director of field operations for the Chicago Customs and Border Protection office, said "The batteries do not meet safety standards, and the chargers as well," Ferrara said at a news conference Wednesday. He said some chargers don't shut off automatically when the batteries are finished charging, which could lead to an explosion.

That means the low-quality chargers are not built in the overcharging protection circuit. Some customers ask us why our UL charger is larger than other chargers in the market. That’s the reason that our charger contains the high quality safest overcharging protection circuit.


Our UL chargers including the safest protections as below


Safe Protections

Overcharging Protection


Overvoltage Protection


Limited voltage Protection

Max output voltage of our charger will not be higher than the battery’s limited charging voltage

You can see we use the best components in the chargers. That’s why the cost is higher than others. But for the safety, it is worth!! Only $49.9, you will not need to worry about the explosion or fire danger in charging.

Officer James Putman suggested that shoppers take a look at a hoverboard's power adapter before they buy it. If the power adapter has a UL mark, he recommends noting the file number and searching for it on UL's online certifications directory.

You can see there is a UL certificate number on our UL hoverboard charger

Our chargers pass the UL certificate. You can find the UL report online. 
We also pass many other certificates, such as BS, RoHS, FCC. But UL and BS is the hardest to pass. Only the high quality products can pass this certificate. 
You can see the difference between our UL charger and other chargers.
Our charger is much larger because it owns the protection circuit with high voltage generator and more complicated and safer designSAFETY REQUIREMENT and COMPLY SAFETY STANDARDS ARE DIFFERENT(UL/C-UL(UL60950),TUV(EN60950),CE/EMC,T-LICENSE,SAA,BSMI,PSE,3C/GB4943).
That's why our charger is much safer than the low quality ones.
