CNBC Squawk Box

Posted on December 11, 2015

The Hovertrax has been getting a bad rap lately. Unfortunately, the reason is due to imitation boards that are cheaply made. More and more knock off boards have gone up in flames. Recently, a mall kiosk in Auburn, Washington (very close to home) selling counterfeit boards had a unit catch fire in front of customers and storefronts.  “For no reason, it just exploded,” Kelli Steiner, who recorded the video, told CBS affiliate KIRO-TV. “And not just a little fire, exploded. Like combusted, the whole thing.”

Joalene Jolivette, our Global Marketing Director, journeyed to the CNBC office in New York to answer some very important questions about the Hovertrax. Educating consumers is very important as this problem continues to grow.

A few takeaways from the video include: 

  1. The Hovertrax will not overcharge if left charging for longer than necessary
  2. There have been no incidents with explosion or fires with our Hovertrax, or our other popular items that use the same high quality battery 
  3. You get what you pay for. Consumer safety is our highest priority

Quality products do come at a price. Please consider your options and choose the safest product on the market.

Hovertrax can be found at Target, Nordstrom, Toys R Us, Brookstone, Dick’s, and Razor.com.
