Amazon removes all Swegways from website and refers buyers to trusted vendors
Amazon has removed its Swegway Hoverboard selection from its online marketplace. This comes at a crucial time, as demand for these products has picked up significantly going into the holiday season.
Reports surfaced last year that several models of self balancing scooters had burst into flames due to malfunctioning batteries. Many different brands have been involved in the reported fires, although most cases are from cheap products on online marketplaces such as Amazon, Ebay and Gumtree.
The parts associated with the fires include the battery and chargers used in some brands of self balancing scooters.
Many critics have been quick to blame the lithium ion batteries used in most hoverboard models for the fires. It is yet to be made clear whether it is the lithium ion batteries or the quality of the components surrounding the batteries that is causing these fires.
All of our batteries are UL certified and made from trusted manufacturers such as LG and Samsung.
Many of the cheap hoverboard brands that can be bought for as little a £150 each have cut corners with the build quality of their products, which is the most likely cause of these fires.
In conclusion, 100% of the hoverboard selection has been removed from the Amazon website. To get SAFE, TESTED and HIGH QUALITY Swegways, visit our online store.
