Be Mindful Of What You Buy This Holiday Season To Avoid Giving A Defective Product As A Gift

Although Black Friday sales have come and gone, many people will spend the next few weeks searching for the perfect gift to give that special someone in their life. The wish list of children have grown over the months, and parents do everything in their power to meet the demands.

Overheating battery packs cause an increased risk of fire, burns, and even electrocution.

Therefore, check model and serial numbers before purchasing a unit. Although recalls are being issued, there are still some ways that the products can find their way into your home. Directly buying a hoverboard from an individual is one of them, along with shopping at flea markets or other similar locations. Places to recently recall scooters include but are not limited to...
