Safety Concerns ¶ 

The self-balancing boards are mass produced by many factories under many names and most look the same from the outside, regardless of price. The internals and chargers, however, are of varying quality. Numerous reports of smart boards catching fire while charging, or while in use, have surfaced and raised concerns for the safety of self-balancing board users.

If you are looking to purchase a "safe" board, look for UL listed parts, especially in the charger, name-brand batteries (LG, Samsung, etc) and if possible, disassemble the device to check solder connections and component insulation.
