AirMotion branded Hoverboards packaged with a model designation of H1-FAJ0293 and a barcode/EAN of 0705632504987. This recall alert was submitted by Hungary to the EU Safety Gateway.

These AirMotion branded Hoverboards products are marketed, sold and delivered as self-balancing scooters for use as a personal transport device for individuals. Each comes equipped with a Lithium Ion Battery (rated at 25.2 V 4 Ah), on-board lighting and a Battery Charger with the product designation of AOI 08294155DD1.

No item numbers, best-before date codes, manufacturing date codes, batch/lot designations, production dates, expiry dates, regulatory approval designations, registration numbers, agency approval designations or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

The type of hazards presented in these recalled AirMotion branded Hoverboards include the reported finding that the recalled Hoverboards do not have a thermal cut-out device. Due to the fact that the Battery does not have a device that monitors the power cells’ temperature, the Charger may overheat during the charging process and the Hoverboard Cover may ignite. As a consequence, the Hoverboards may cause a fire and the rider may suffer burns and other injuries.

In addition, the product reportedly features poor quality design and/or construction because the power cords, which are exposed to movement between the two motors, are routed through a steel pipe with rough edges at both ends. During the life of the Scooter, the insulation of the power cords will be damaged by the pipe’s sharp edges in such a way that the Battery may short-circuit and explode during use. As a result, the rider might lose control and fall off the Hoverboard and suffer injuries.

Cumulatively, therefore, the recalled Hoverboards could overheat and catch fire during normal usage. In addition, an operator of the device could touch the live parts and receive an electric shock and/or burns when utilizing the product in a reasonable manner expected with their intended design and anticipated use.
