Fire and explosion hazard prompt recall of hover boards

Posted: Updated:

Overheating battery packs have prompted the recall of some IRover hover boards.

The recall involves about 2,800 IRover self-balancing scooters.

Their lithium-ion battery packs can overheat, posing the risks of smoking, fire and exploding.

There have been two reports of the battery packs smoking and overheating; no injuries or property damage have been reported.

The hover boards were sold at Fallas stores of Los Angeles, as well as, TJ Maxx and Marshalls stores nationwide from December 2015 through December 2016.

Owners should contact IRover for instructions on returning the unit for a replacement.
