Dangerous, explosive hoverboards are still lurking, and here’s another recall to remind you of it

Following the tragic death of tow children in Pennsylvania caused by a hoverboard fire earlier this month, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) just announced the recall of yet another hoverboard brand.

The brand is Los Angeles-based Vecaro LifeStyle and the reason for the recall is the same as the ones we reported in 2016—lithium-ion batteries.

“The lithium-ion battery packs in the self-balancing scooters/hoverboards can overheat, posing a risk of smoking, catching fire and/or exploding,” reads the advisory on the CPSC’s website, which specifically names the Glide65, Drift8 and Trek10 models of the Vecaro hoverboards.
