What's the deal with the latest hoverboard safety concerns?

We are issuing this statement in regards to the recent press and announcements by other retailers about the safety of hoverboard products.
 
At HoverBoardVault, we take our safety responsibilities very seriously and with this in mind, we would like to advise our existing and prospective customers of the situation regarding our hoverboards.
 
The current United States enforcement authorities are currently checking the compliance of all hoverboards entering the United States due to safety concerns relating to a number of issues with hoverboards & self-balancing scooters, in particular the plug, the lead and the overcharging of the batteries. HoverBoardVault products meet or exceed the UL (Underwriters Laboratories Inc.) Standard Certifications.
 
Our hoverboard suppliers passed all UL safety-related certification, validation, testing, inspection, auditing, advising and training services to a wide range of clients, including manufacturers, retailers, policymakers, regulators, service companies, and consumers. UL is one of several companies approved to perform safety testing by the US federal agency Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
 
Only companies who have addressed concerns by demonstrating the safety of the product, addressing any non-conformances and performing safety risk assessments, following advice from United States enforcement authorities, are having their hoverboards released for sale in the United States.
 
We can confirm that all of our products have been released for sale and distribution in the United States and are not, nor have they ever been, the subject of press stories about hoverboards catching fire. HoverBoardVault products have not been involved in any of these incidents.
 
We maintain a proactive stance in regards to safety and we continue to assess our safety responsibilities on an ongoing basis.
 
HoverBoardVault continue to sell products in the United States with confidence, but if you do have any worries or concerns about your product, then please feel free to contact us at 1-800-214-1720.
 
We would advise customers to be careful when purchasing cheaper knockoff boards from other online retailers.

Lisa, we are working with our manufacturers to have our boards fully UL listed. This may take awhile :)

As soon as they are fully UL listed we will restock our boards and continue selling them to the public. Sorry for the inconvenient wait.
