Did you already order it, and then they deleted the account? You should be able to get a refund for that...

The link became broken, so based on how xelareverse said, the seller deleted his account.

Is this the hoverboard that explodes and catches on fire when you charge it after taking a ride on it?Saw that on the news-Suppose the hoverboard maker will have to replace the board owners house?-the boards batteries caught fire and burned when the owner tried to charge it.the resulting fire just about burned his house down.

Looks like many Chinese products with Li-Po batteries have this danger. Sometimes internal short circuits in the batteries, sometimes short circuit from outside along with no fusing whatsoever, sometimes overcharges

A phone is more likely to explode. So far only a few have exploded.

Yes,have heard of phones catching fire when in use or being charged-same with laptop computers.ANY appliance using Lithium or Li-Po batteries can have that risk.Yet we like the conveniences and benefits of these machines so we take the risk.Right now my new IPhone is in my pocket-no leg warmer yet-and will heave it if it does!And some of my portable lights have Li batteries.Have a new one I bought from Tractor Supply charging right now.The light maker warns not to leave the charger on after the battery has charged.It a "JobSmart" portable HID light.35W HID lamp.

With properly made batteries (proper inside isolators, that are not likely to cause a short circuit inside the battery) and charging schemes (with overvoltage/undervoltage cutouts, ....) the risk is very small and accptable

With things like cheap (or fake) replacement batteries, cheap battery powered toys, etc then it is when you are literally buying a bomb

I've readed about this device at the newspaper. The israeli Ministry of Transportation, banned these devices completely, and it is completely illegal to even import these hoverborads to Israel.

They want to ban e-bikes too. Those things are not easy to tax (they dont use fuel...)
