Consumer News: Dollar Mania recalls Sonic Smart Wheels self-balancing scooters/hoverboards

PhotoDollar Mania of Bossier City, La., is recalling about 1,000 self-balancing scooters/hoverboards.

The lithium-ion battery packs in the self-balancing scooters/hoverboards can overheat, posing a risk of the products smoking, catching fire and/or exploding.

The firm has received one report of a self-balancing scooter/hoverboard catching fire in Louisiana in 2017 resulting in approximately $40,000 of property damage to a consumer’s home. No injuries have been reported.

This recall involves Sonic Smart Wheels self-balancing scooters, commonly referred to as hoverboards, with model number S-01 or SBW666SL printed on the bottom of the unit.

The hoverboards have two wheels at either end of a platform and are powered by lithium-ion batteries.

The hoverboards were sold in black, blue, green, red, white and yellow and have an “S” printed in the center of the wheel caps.

The self-balancing scooters/hoverboards, manufactured in China, were sold exclusively at Dollar Mania stores in Bossier City and Shreveport, La., from August 2015 through December 2016 for about $200.

What to do

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled self-balancing scooters/hoverboards and contact Dollar Mania for instructions on returning the hoverboard to receive a free UL2272-certified replacement unit.

Consumers may contact Dollar Mania toll-free at 844-333-4457 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. (CT) Monday through Friday or online on the Dollar Mania Facebook page for more information.
