UL Certifies First Hoverboard to UL 2272 Standard
UL is a global safety science organization that has issued the first safety certification for the UL 2272 safety requirements for the electrical system of self-balancing scooters (also known as hoverboards) launched in February 2016. After completing the construction evaluation, safety testing and compliance with UL 2272 marking, labeling and user instructions requirements. UL reminds consumers that UL 2272 certification does not involve riding safety, and appropriate safety precautions should be taken when using self-balancing scooters.
What Does UL 2272 Certified Hoverboard Mean?
Simply put, UL2272 is a U.S. certification for electric mobile equipment that meets the comprehensive safety test system standard. Test parameters include electrical and mechanical components and environmental factors used to assess electrical safety. To explain further, the evaluation takes into account the equipment's resistance to shocks, extreme temperatures, water exposure, and other factors. In these cases, signs of short circuits and unbalanced charging indicate the possibility of a fire, and are therefore considered to be less than ideal in terms of electrical safety levels.
Are UL 2272 Hoverboards Safe?
Yes, UL2272 hoverboard is safe. The UL2272 products have been tested in four aspects: electrical, mechanical, environmental, and materials/components. This greatly guarantees that the hoverboard will not overheat, catch fire, or explode during use. Note: UL2272 only guarantees product safety and does not guarantee riding safety, so please pay attention to wearing protective gear.
