4 Tips Regarding the Hoverboards and Your Children
What is all the hype
about Hoover Boards? That seems to be the new fab now. Have you
purchased a Hover Board for your children? Would you purchase a
Hoover Board for your Children?
Hover Boards may or
may not be a great idea. If you are going to purchase a Hoover
Board for your children, there are a few things that you should know.
According to Fire
Chief Chuck Flynn at NBC Connecticut news, it is important to make
sure that you are watching the Hover Board when it is charging and
don't overcharge it. He further emphasized to use the approved
chord with the unit. It really sounds to me it is very important
to follow the instructions very carefully. I think about how I
charge my cellphone and not necessarily watch it while it is charging
or charging it overnight while I sleep. That might not be a good
idea with the Hoover Board.
2. Sparking Fire
According to Diane
Wilson at ABC11 news, the Carey family discovered their Hoverboard on
fire. She further adds although water was thrown on it and it was
sprayed with a fire extinguisher, it was taken outside to the grass
where it continued to smoke for about 20 minutes. Thank God no one
was injured, but there was damage to the family's home. I would
say that is an expensive price to pay. I could not I imagine having
my home damaged by fire of any kind.
Did you know that
the Hoverboard does not have to be charging to catch on fire?
According to Sean Hollister and CNET.com. He further adds that
American, Alaska, Delta, Hawaiian, JetBlue, Southwest and United
Airlines are banning hoverboards on passenger flights, and the United
States Postal Service has stopped shipping Hoverboards by air.
Consumers do your
homework. If you have made your mind up to get a Hoverboard for
your children make sure you know the facts about one. Did you know
that the Consumer Product Safety Commission has received at least 10
reports of hoverboard fires and the number is increasing daily? This
is according to agency spokesman Scott Wolfson's discussion with NBC
News. So people be careful. I think I would wait and think again
before purchasing a Hoverboard. Finally, I ask you again, would you
get your children a Hoverboard?
