Product Information:

*Update: UL introduces UL2272 to support retailers and manufacturers by offering electrical and fire-safety testing and certification - Electrical Systems for Self-Balancing Scooters. This new standard evaluates the safety of the electrical drive train system and battery and charger system combinations, but does NOT evaluate for performance, reliability, or rider safety. As a result, UL recommends that proper safety precautions should be taken when buying and using a self-balancing scooter:

UL certified its first hoverboard -- the Ninebot by Segway miniPRO (Model# N3M320) -- in May, 2016 and has since certified additional brands and models including products from Razor USA, Hangzhou Chic Intelligent Technology Co Ltd., PTX Performance Products; Shenzhen Global E-Commerce Co Ltd., and Wuyi Chuangxin Metal Tools Co Ltd.
