The best hoverboard for your requirements can be pretty hard to find these days. Before the imposition of the interim ban, the ACCC contacted all known hoverboard suppliers and advised them that the ACCC was considering options to decrease the risk of house fires brought on by hoverboards and that one of the options under consideration was a recommendation to the Minister for Small Business and Assistant Treasurer that she impose an interim ban on hoverboards which don’t meet specific safety requirements of UL 2272.

In light of submissions and statements by ERAC on the suitability of the IEC standards as well as supplier opinions, the proposed interim ban has been amended mini segway to exclude hoverboards which comply with the IEC standards (or alternatively the AS/NZS standards which adopt the relevant segments of IEC 60335-1).
For these reasons, the imposition of this interim ban to prevent the supply of hoverboards which do not comply with specified safety requirements in the IEC standards listed above or UL 2272 is anticipated to reduce the risk of fire in hoverboards, and thereby reduce the risk of death and serious injury.
The guy on the Sunrise show was waiting for his turn to get on a hand-less segway – I won’t call them ‘hoverboards’ because I don’t consider boards with ‘wheels’ to be a hoverboard…… but… anyway, the Sunrise guy put his hand on the kid’s shoulder, and the machine reacted to the push, and the kid came down abruptly on his back-side.
Suppliers were advised that, given the number of house fires and incidents involving smoking, overheating or sparking of hoverboards while charging, the ACCC may recommend that the Minister impose an interim ban immediately, on the basis that hoverboards that don’t comply with certain safety requirements in UL 2272 create an imminent risk of death or severe injury.
