After fires, consumers warned to stop using LazyZ Board hoverboards

More fires reported, more hoverboards recalled

Safety regulators have recalled an additional 14,000 hoverboards sold under seven brand names for the fire risk caused by their lithium-ion battery packs.

The recall involves certain LayZ Board, Drone Nerds, Go Wheels, iHoverspeed, iLive, Tech Drift, Sonic Smart and Smart Balance self-balancing hoverboards.

The CPSC says it is aware of more than 250 hoverboard incidents related to fires or overheating since 2015.

Almost 14,000 hoverboards from seven different manufacturers are being recalled due to fire and explosion hazards.

The agency says consumers should immediately stop using the recalled products and contact their manufacturers for instructions on how to fix the hoverboards or get a refund.

First the warning: Investigators say a LayZ Board self-balancing scooter started a fire last month that destroyed or damaged four townhomes in Pennsylvania.

The safety warning to stop use applies to LayZ Board hoverboards, which is a different product from Lazyboard hoverboards.

In March 2017, two children were killed in a house fire in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania after a LayZ Board hoverboard caught on fire while it was charging. The CPSC also estimates there have been 13 burn injuries, three smoke inhalation injuries and more than $4 million in property damage related to hoverboards. "It is not too late for consumers to receive a refund or replacement battery, depending upon the hoverboard company".
