exploding hoverboard
Hi Everyone,
I purchased a hoverbie hoverboard for my son and we received it 3 weeks ago. On Tuesday, while it was recharging in our dining room, it exploded. There were at least 6 different explosions that sent burning pieces flying across the room and the flames reached 3 feet. Our home was seriously damaged, the fire department is investigating, and we are living in a hotel while our home is cleaned and repaired.
I posted a review for the hoverbie stating this but it has clearly been blocked and is not visible online. I just want people to know that this is a dangerous product and the company making (hoverbie, rollitech) is pretty shady. I am worried about other people who might be harmed by this product. Please let people know and lobby Canada Computers to get it off the shelves.

Hi there, I have sent this off to the product manager with the hopes of him looking into it

These are my own personal opinions and do not reflect those of the company or my fellow employees
