Good Luck.
Three of UK's biggest retailers, including online giant Amazon, are advising customers to dispose of hoverboards amid safety concerns. There have been many online reports of toy catching fire and exploding. Stores have told consumers they will get refund if they take their hoverboard to special recycling centre for electronic equipment. They have asked manufacturers to address these safety issues. Hoverboards are self-balancing, two-wheeled scooters that can transport users like skateboard, but without using any physical effort. They are currently one of most popular gifts for children this Christmas and retailers' decision will disappoint many kids hoping for popular device.

Electrical Safety First, consumer protection group in UK, said that around half--million people in UK have bought hoverboard as Christmas gift. Another million people have put it on their shopping list in run-up to Christmas Day. Britain's largest bricks-and-mortar retailer Tesco said: "We've suspended sale of all hoverboards, both in store and online, as precautionary measure." Amazon said of call to dispose of hoverboards: "We regret inconvenience this may cause you but trust you will understand that your safety and satisfaction is our highest priority." Hoverboards cannot be used on public roads in Britain because they have not been registered as vehicles.
