I never heard of hoverboards until a few weeks ago, when I heard a news report on the radio about hoverboards exploding or bursting into flame for no apparent reason.
It’s confusing because the gadget is not a board, neither does it hover. It’s a set of self-propelled wheels. But it’s got this lithium battery that can be tricky.
Get a load of the video: this was a serious fire. The kid only had his hoverboard for one day. He plugged it in to charge the battery, and thar she blows.
I think I’ll pass on this toy, folks. My bike will not blow up on me. My dinosaur figurines are not likely to burn down my apartment. I don’t care for possessions that turn on you and might could kill you. Leave that to old episodes of The Twilight Zone.
