Product description
Electric self-balancing scooter ("hoverboard")
The discharge voltage of the connector pins of the power supply unit is too high and could lead to an electric shock. The appliance can suddenly start up without use of the control device intended for that purpose which could lead to injuries. The product does not comply with the requirements of the Machinery Directive and the relevant European Standard EN 60335-1.
Measures taken
The product has insufficient resistance to moisture and water could come into contact with live parts (the external charging connector in the battery compartment). This could lead to an electric shock or fire.
