Top 10 Best Smart Two Wheels Electric Balance Scooters 2017
Smart Self Balancing Two-Wheel Electric Scooters, also called hoverboards, are the “In” thing today. Unfortunately, they got off to a very bad start. Some cheaply made models caught fire. Amazon and other major sellers of those bad self balancing scooters stopped selling them until they determined which models are safe. The safe models are now coming back on the market.
A new safety rating called UL 2272 was created to test self balancing scooters. Self balancing scooters must meet or exceed the UL 2272 requirements or they will not receive the UL approval. They also must receive the UL 2272 approval to be on our list.
Also, a new safety rating called UL 2271 indicates that the battery has passed 159 tests to mitigate fire potential.
