Hoverboards From Argos - Are They Worth It?

Ever since hoverboards have been used in the movies, it has been a dream for every kid in the UK and other countries. It’s magnificent features that allow you to move from one place to another comfortably. It is not hindered by the surface on which it travels; it goes well with all kinds of terrain. Seeing Marty McFly hover using a hoverboard spark interests in kids and adults. Hoverboards became popular shortly after it was invented in 2013 and has been tipped to be a future personal transport device.

Most buyers are not informed well enough about retailers that sell quality hoverboards, but we will like to more on the most discussed retailer right now with people criticizing the safety of their products- which retailer are we talking about Is the Argos Hoverboard.

A young father to a daughter of eight was fuming about Argos Hoverboard. He observed that smoke was coming out of the house and rushed inside to see what’s happening; he discovered that his dining curtains have caught fire, quench it with water, and saw that the Argos hoverboard has exploded leading to the fire outburst. Amazon and other online retail outlets have refrained from selling this product due to negative reviews from end-users of the product.

Argos Hoverboard fire explosion

Argos hoverboards are well famous for many explosions caused in the UK. Families have been thrown into a state of mourning leading to injuries and death of their loved ones. But what is the real cause of Argos hoverboard explosion? Is the recharge system? Or the design? There have been reports of Argos hoverboard explosion even while in operation. 

Argos released a speech that all hoverboards they sell meet all the safety standards given by safety regulators, but they have put the product off sale but did they really stop selling the product? Or Argos are careless to check if these products are safe to use. 

Zinc Smart RX- a product of Argos Hoverboards should not be used in wet conditions like rain. When used during rain, the battery pack becomes compromise affecting the device's general performance- if enough heat is generated during charge, it’s likely to cause a fire outburst.

Trust me, the major problem has to do with the quality of lithium-ion battery packs inside it. Lithium is a highly reactive metal that can result in a reaction under a small amount of heat. Lithium-ion batteries need to be made by experienced manufacturers. Argos didn’t mention companies in charge of battery production, but I doubt if the company has vast experience in manufacturing lithium-ion batteries. Official Hoverboard has trusted the manufacture of their batteries to Samsung – a reputable company well known to be versatile in electronics, mostly rechargeable devices. They understand the best conditions that work well for these types of metals- that’s why Official Hoverboard products don’t get exploded even while in operation for long. 

Some Argos brands pose a risk of electrocution

zinc hoverboard- a brand promoted by Argos have been withdrawn over fears that it might electrocute the users. This is because these models do not comply with technical standards and can be considered unsafe to use. If you have any Argos product, I would advise you to stop using it; specific components of hoverboards they sell do not fully comply with standards. Although they might be sold for cheap, this is just a strategy to lure in customers. However, life is much more valuable than a device that poses a threat to life

Argos hoverboards have a poor delivery system. Many customers of this retailer complained about their delivery time; they love to waste time! Why would you have to wait more than 24 hours before your hoverboard get to its destination 

Argos claimed that they repair users hoverboard without a proof of purchase but checked reviews online to see how many users are fuming that Argos have poor customer relationship management. They don’t attend to issues on time, nor give a lead on how users can independently do a home repair if the fault is minimal. Official hoverboard provides a one-year warranty for products bought in their store and will attend to any problem should one arise within the warranty period. This repair is done without proof of purchase since our company keeps good stock records- and our products are unique, unlike other retailers.
