After too many bad reviews and low-quality hoverboards, Amazon has begun to pull some hoverboards from sale.
Many online retailers are removing hoverboards from their sites, and the federal Consumer Product Safety Commission is looking after it as the Christmas shopping is coming soon.

Currently there are 10 reports of accidents because of hoverboards that are being investigated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
Meanwhile some online retailers, like Overstock, have stop selling hoverboards.
According to Swagway, a major producer of hoverboards, Amazon has asked all sellers to “provide documentation demonstrating that all hoverboards you list are compliant with applicable safety standards, including UN 38.3 (battery), UL 1642 (battery) and UL 60950-1 (charger).”
As of now 97 percent of the other branded hoverboards that they were also selling on their site was pulled of due to low-quality boards.
Buyers are requested not to buy cheap and low quality hoverboards for safety.
