We have become aware of a number of cheap, imitation boards being sold by a number of retailers across the UK. Most (not all) of these boards are dangerous and carry a risk of overheating and explosion.
The main issues are around:
- Cheap batteries
- Lack of a cut-off switch in the battery which prevents over charging
- Lack of fuses in the plugs
The chargers should also have light indication letting you know your swegway is charged. Once the light on our chargers goes from red to green, the charging is ceased and it's time to remove the charger from your Swegway. Both the battery cut off and the fuse would have to fail to cause overheating and explosions. To minimise this risk you can ensure you supervise the Swegway whilst charging and remove as soon as the battery charger light is illuminated green.
All of our products are CE Certified and have undergone testing. All of our plugs are fused and conform to BS1363. We have test reports proving compliance with a number of UK and EU regulations including but not limited to:
- ROHS test report and certification
- CE test report and certification
- FCC test report and certification
As our technology evolves we will be working closely with BSI to help set universal standards for the products not only provided by us but all retailers. We feel strongly about providing our customers with safe enjoyable products and will continue to do so.
