NON-UL2272
Certified Hoverboard

 

What does UL 2272 Certified actually mean & what saftey tests are involved?

There are multiple tests and checks included in the UL 2272 standard. For any hoverboard to achieve the UL 2272 standard, it has to endure numerous extensive saftety tests and all our hoverboard models have earned this highest level of certification!

The UL 2272 standard is a comprehensive battery of tests, that check the battery, electrical system, software, hardware and components of hoverboards for fire hazards and safety issues. They have a whole range of stress tests that include exposing the battery and the hoverboard to high temperatures, continuous high speeds, impacts and falls.

Amongst the array of tests are several torture tests, such as jamming the wheels of the hoverboard for 7 hours, while the hoverboard tries to free itself. This stress usage will cause the hoverboard to heat up, and the ability of a particular hoverboard to withstand this heat is what is tested.

In another test, hoverboards are dropped from a height of one meter (around 3 and a half feet) to a hard concrete floor. The battery tests include one in which the battery is punched with nails. Prety high indirect heat is also applied to the battery to see if it will catch fire or withstand it.

With all that said... Do not make the mistake of buying a hoverboard that is not UL 2272 certified, no matter how tempted you are by a low price! Saving a few bucks is not worth the safety risks and fire hazzards associated with a NON-UL2272 certified hoverboard. However we have customers everyday that have previously ordered a Hoverboard elsewhere for under $200 and it never exploded or caught on fire, however it did stop working within only 2-3 months with no recourse. Do your research, and save yourself the hassle & frustration by ordering one of our UL2272 certified Hoverboard the first time and join the over 9,000+ satisified customers!

  • We have been selling hoverboards for over 2+ years and have sold over 9,000 hoverboards. We only sell UL2272 certified models, which are the safest hoverboards available and all hoverboards must pass this certification to be LEGALLY sold here in the USA, although many retailers choose not follow the law in order to make more profit putting their customers at risk.

  • Unlike many of our competitors listed below that are selling unsafe and NON-UL2272 certifie hoverboards, as a consumer you need to do your research and look at more than just price when purchasing a hoverboard for you and your family.

  • While they offer some of the lowest priced hoverboards on the market at less than $199 with free shipping, this is one of sites to avoid at all costs. They are selling old model hoverboards with NO UL2272 certification, which under the laws of the USA is illegal. These boards are some of the same hoverboards that were recalled in 2016 as they have no UL certification.

  • Just recently, as of March 2017 they now offer a UL2272 hoverboard, however this board is significantly higher priced at $249.

  • Swagatron is one of the largest hoverboard retailers, and most of their boards are safe and UL2272 certified. However they recently began clearancing their older model hoverboard (X1) for $199, which does not pass the UL2272 unlike all their other more expensive boards such as the T1, which sells for $349.

  • Bottom line, if you are going to choose Swagatron, DO NOT buy the cheap non-UL227 X1 model, instead purchase one of their UL2272 models to ensure a safe experience.

  • This retailer has been around a couple years, however given the number of complains and offering false claims that their board is safe, yet it is NOT UL2272 certified is absurb and putting everyone of their customers at risk! This company tries passing their boards off as safe and certified, just because they include a UL certified charger. However this does not make the actual hoverboard safe or certified. EVEN THE LINK ON THIER WEBSITE TO VIEW THE CERTIFICATION IS BROKEN!

  • Below is one of their customers complaints from RipOffReport.com
    • Warning, do not purchase a Skeeterboard brand hoverboard.  The Skeeterboard product is not UL certified, and not certified to UL 2272. I Purchased a Skeeterboard in May of 2016.  After it came to light that many of the companies selling hoverboards were using false or partial electrical certifications, I contacted Skeeterboard and sent me a copy of a UL certification for the charger only.

  • This retailer is one of the most ethical competitors we have, as they also choose to only sell UL2272 certified hoverboards, which are the safest hoverboards available in the USA. In fact, we even do business with same manufacturer as this retailer.

  • The only downside to this retailer is their expensive pricing. While we offer essentially the same safe UL2272 certified hoverboard for $229, they are selling it for over $100 more!

  • This retailer is another one of the many hoverboard retailers that popped up overnight given the popularity of hoverboards. They have not been around for more than a few months, and they are selling illegal NON-UL2272 for the low price of $199. This would definately be a bargain, if they werent last year's model with NO UL-certification.

  • The recently began offering the safe UL2272 certified models, however at a price of more than $239, we offer a lower price, a 2+ year reputation in the business, and better service.

  • This retailer offers quite a large selection of colors for the 6.5" hoverboards, however 90% of all the hoverboards listed on their website are old models with NO-UL2272 certifcation. If a retailer does not list UL2272, the board is not safe and does not comply with US regulations. Don't get taken advantage of, make sure the hoverboard you purchase is UL2272.

  • They do offer a few models that are safe UL2272 hoverboards, however the starting price for these models is $259.
