How safe hoverboards? ~ Besides the natural balance of concerns and fall, there are more serious concerns. Namely: "How do I know that the product will not explode, melt or catch fire when I load"?
In fact, there have been several delay incidents related to charging mechanism in these hoverboards. To understand why, it helps to have some basic knowledge of the product.
When you order off of eBay, Amazon or Alibaba, they are likely to buy an import re-sale. Maybe they are buying a quality product, or maybe they buy the lowest bidder to make more profit in turn. When someone buys a new product from Amazon, the last thing on your mind burns the kitchen down, but considering. For those new to the Li-Po batteries, they are different from previous battery technologies because they maintain a full load almost right until they are almost completely exhausted, and then they are almost immediately empty. They produce a lot of energy and are prone to thermal runaway (fusion), when too exhausted, so in addition to buying a quality product, we have a few more words of caution we would like to share with you.
First, because of the steep drop in power when the battery is low, it is important to stop the march on board when the battery alarm starts. Although you can continue to rise because of the constant voltage, this may reduce the lifespan of the battery life. If you continue to use the battery pack for a minute or two, you can actually force you to a point from which it can not recover, and it will no longer accept a charge at all. In this case, the battery is likely to be very hot and possibly damaging other internal components. So the moral of the story is: Stop riding when the low battery alarm (continuous tone) starts.
Second, unlike other types of batteries, it is recommended not to store a Li-Po battery with a full charge, as this will also reduce the lifetime of the battery life. The good news here is that our engineers have thought about it, and our chargers use a simple red green system / load light of light. When the charger is green, the battery is optimally charged for security, battery life, and a life span of the battery is sufficient. There are circuits in place to avoid this, but it is always a good practice to disconnect a Li-Po battery when it does not load, in this case, the circuit fails. It is therefore easy: Buy from a dealer who knows the importance of solid electronics, and set a 3 hour timer. Unplug the charger when the timer goes off or the light turns green.
