Hoverboards, UL 2272 and You!

With several news articles and publicized bans on Hoverboards (or similar “self-balancing scooters” and related battery-powered devices) consumers, distributors, retailers, and manufacturers have been challenged with certifying the safety of these devices, despite a lack of certification programs.
