So the news have hit the world that these hoverboards might not be as safe as we thought. Not that this was news really. Brands and manufacturers trying to take shortcuts and increase their revenue isn’t something new to the world.
Even though you might think building a hoverboard with a bad battery might only affect the overall capacity of the board. This wasn’t the issue with some of the hoverboards sold on amazon. They didn’t just lack in capacity they had cheap bad quality batteries which got overheated due to leaving the charger plugged in for too long and finally they caught fire.
Up until now there has been 7 cases of hoverboards catching fire and Amazon.com decided to do the only thing responsible and pull all self-balancing scooters down and every reseller has gotten a mail containing claiming that the resellers provide them with proper information and guarantees that the batteries used within their boards are 100% safe.
Due to doing this there are at the moment only a few choices available if you are looking to buy a hoverboard from Amazon.
But do not fear help is near. From contacts we’ve had with a few of the retailers, they are working as fast as they can to acquire the right documents in order to get the AMAZON “seal of approval”.
Until then there are still a few really good and safe hoverboards available on Amazon and we’ve done our best to find these for you.

Here are our recommendations and thoughts about them:
Since many suppliers have had their hoverboards removed due to safety concerns. They now seem to be angry at the brands who took the long but safe way to launch their safest hoverboard and they are now leaving untrue and unverified purchase reviews on these self-balancing devices. Leaving you customers unknowing of whats true or false. Please only follow our and other “Verified purchase” reviews so that you do not get misled among the angry and upset hoverboard suppliers. (At least this is what we think is reason for all the bad reviews).
Below are all safe hoverboards available right now!
