Additional information:
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports the following Electric ‘Hoverboard’ Scooters have been recalled:

Smart Scooter Hoverboard Electric Scooters, sold with any of the following recalled Electric Charger:

  • Charger model number: TCN120WS-420015
  • Charger model number: MYT-72W420200
  • Charger model number: QY0291205000

Please consult the photograph above for details of the Hoverboard’s design and retail presentation.

According to the ACCC, the Chargers for the recalled Hoverboard Electric Scooters have no Australian regulatory approvals, and therefore may not comply with Australian safety standards. There is, therefore, a risk of electric shock to those who use the Chargers.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Scooters, please do not use them. Instead, stop using the Charger immediately by switching off the power at the socket outlet and then unplugging the unit from the socket outlet.

Place the Charger in a safe place where it cannot be accessed to prevent use. Replacement Chargers will be sent to all affected customers along with instructions on how to dispose of the faulty Chargers.

If you have any questions about this recall, please contact the company on 03 9913 5092 or by e-mail at info@smartscooteranz.com.au.
