The 10 companies include eight brand names such as Swagway, Razor and AirWalkz, as well as two retailers, Overstock.com and Boscov’s. In terms of quantity, Swagway who involved about 267,000 Swagway X1 hoverboard impacted most.

CPSC asked consumers immediately stop using hoverboard on the hand, contact the dealer or sales company, returned the hoverboard and ask for a full amount refund, some brands with newly listing UL2272 certificate, need to replace UL2272 approved hoverboard with the exist hoverboard and don’t need to arrange a refund.
Some people say that this may be the final clean up for bad quality hoverboard, in the future, UL2272 approved hoverboard has a big market potential.However, you should pay attention to those who buying these bad quality hoverboard at low price , and reselling them to the market with a new label,and resulting in a vicious circle to the whole hoverboard industry.

How do hoverboard manufacturers think about the recall ?

US government one-size-fits-all means of recall in such scale, many hoverboard industry insider expressed helplessness of this approach, they do not have any room for reversal, since most of the hoverboard quality is reliable, too many innocent by this recall.

How do consumers think about the recall ?

All consumers have said that hoverboard quality problems, or potential risks, business owners must be responsible, the Government’s approach is right, manufacturers and sellers have no reason to let the problem hoverboard enter into the market.

How do Media think about the recall ?

Public media said that they know the hoverboard was booming in such a fast speed,that the entire supply chain are not keeping up with the development of the hoverboard, each link has a problem and lead to such an outcome, but this is not the reasons consumers bearing the loss of bad quality hoverboard, consumers will not accept such a reason, because to ensure the quality of hoverboard is the most basic business responsibility.

From the hoverboard lessons above,we hope the Chinese hoverboard manufacturer and hoverboard industry understand the importance of hoverboard profits, it directly affects the development of enterprises and industry, small profits will not be more sales all the time.Right now,more and more hoverboard manufacturer has been apply UL2272 certificate for their hoverboards,we hope they won’t sell UL2272 hoverboard at cheap price,this is not good for hoverboard future development, hoverboard developer,hoverboard manufacturer,hoverboard dealer and hoverboard after sale service.

For example, many tiro sometimes forget to loose handbrake, causing serious wear and tear of the brake pads, more serious cause of the bicycle spontaneous combustion.If the electric bicycle brake failure, will increase the workload of electric bicycle motors, resulting in continuous high-current electric bicycle battery discharge. As a result, electric bicycle mileage will be shorten.

The Influence of Maintenance For Main Parts on Mileage

Electric bicycles needs regular maintenance. The motor normal use, it will not reduce the efficiency, but if it is overloaded or overspeed, the electric motor will degauss or degrade with the time of use, which will affect the energy conversion rate of the motor ,power
consumption increased, the torque and speed is reduced.

Daily use electric bicycle on a regular basis for the following checks and maintenance, to extend the service life and enhance the driving experience, also for their own safety and family responsibility:

1. Check before and after tire pressure .

If you are a importer or distributor, you would know that the ordering season is coming as only two months left for Christmas holidays. So the sourcing time for supplier and bargaining time with supplier is coming too.

You found this business really interesting, and you want to find a supplier in China.

I suggest the first thing you need to do is know much more information about hoverboard, simply type words like-what makes a good hoverboard, you will find many usefully information about hoverboard regards its quality like below:

But if you are a importer or reseller, you know their price is not very competitive as they are big brand and from US, US labor cost is very high, and the other three sites abosultely from China and you can find out their company name easily by visiting their website.

Then use these company name you have found out and sourcing on Alibaba.com, you can find out them easily, no need to send hundreds of emails and inquires to dump supplier you have never heard before.No it is time to bargaining with the three manufactures ( maybe 4 maybe 10 ,depends on you ), you can get fine hoverboard with really cheap price.
