How to Charge Your Hoverboard Properly - Do not get Burned!

Aside from the natural concerns of balancing and falling off, there are much more serious concerns. Namely: "How must i know that the product won't explode, melt, or catch fire when I'm charging it?"
Indeed, there has been several mishaps these days, related to the charging mechanism in these hoverboards. To understand why, it helps to have some background familiarity with the product.
There are over 20 factories in China that make these things. Some are reputable, plus some are not. When you order off eBay, Amazon, or Alibaba, you are likely buying from a re-seller who imports them. Maybe they buy a quality product, or maybe they are buying from the lowest bidder to earn more profit about the turnaround. In other words, it's actually a gamble. When someone buys a new product from Amazon, the final thing on their mind is burning your home down, but it is worth looking at. In fact, it has happened to at least two people in the united kingdom within the last 6 months. So, the first step is to buy from a reputable source it doesn't use cheap electronics on the interior, especially the batteries and charging mechanism.
"These Ain't Your Momma's Batteries"
Hoverboards are powered by the newest generation of Lithium-Polimer, or "Li-Po" rechargeable batteries.
For the people new to Li-Po batteries, they may be different from previous battery technologies in that they maintain a nearly full charge until finally they are almost fully depleted, and then they are empty almost immediately. They produce a lots of power, and are at risk of thermal runaway (meltdown) when overly depleted, so along with buying a quality product, there exists a few more words of caution we'd like to share with you.
First, for that reason steep drop-off in power if the battery gets low, you should stop riding the board if the battery alarm starts. Although you can continue to ride it due to the constant voltage, doing this could reduce your long lasting battery life. If you continue to deplete the battery for only a minute or two longer, it is possible to force it to a point from which it cannot recover, and it'll no longer accept a charge at all. In this case, the battery is prone to get very hot and perhaps damage other internal components. So, the moral from the story is: stop riding once the low battery alarm (continuous beeping) starts.

Secondly, unlike other batteries, it is not recommended to save a li-po battery having a full charge, as this will also reduce the long lasting battery life. The good news here is that our engineers have thought of this, and our chargers utilize a simple red-light/green-light charging system. Once the charger turns green, battery is optimally charged for safety, battery, and a sufficient battery duration. The phrase of caution here's that you should unplug the charger when it turns green so that you don't continue to charge your board. Doing so COULD, yep, you have it, reduce the life of the battery. There is circuitry in position to prevent this, but it is always a good practice to unplug a li-po battery whenever it is not charging, in case that circuitry fails. Use the protection as a backup, much less your going-in plan.
