UL a global safety science organization, on May 10th, 2016 announced that it has issued the first safety certification to the UL 2272 safety requirements for electrical systems of self-balancing scooters (aka hoverboards) that was launched in February2016. After completing a construction evaluation, safety testing, and complying with UL 2272's marking, labeling, and user instruction requirements, the hoverboard model N3M320 (Ninebot miniPRO) manufactured by Ninebot (parent company of Segway) has been found to meet all the requirements. UL reminds consumers that the UL 2272 certification does not address riding safety and that proper safety precautions should be taken when using self-balancing scooters.
An official certificate of compliance was presented to Ninebot along with holographic product labels featuring the UL Enhanced Mark at an event held at UL China. To identify Ninebot models that have been UL certified in the marketplace, consumers should look for theUL holographic label and Enhanced Mark on the product. This makes it easy for consumers to identify genuine products that have achieved UL certification.
