The commercial standards are an urgent reminder of this “could catch fire” electric scooter.
The Isinwheel folding scooter made in China is classified as “Serious Risk” and does not meet the requirements of the “Regulation on the Carriage of Dangerous Goods and the Use of Transportable Pressure Equipment 2009”.
It goes without saying that the scooter arrives with a fully charged lithium-ion battery plugged in.
However, when the handlebars are flipped over, the sharp edges inside can show through the wiring, burning the circuit and catching fire.
The battery is made by the JETECH brand.
Trade standards confirm the actions that must be taken for companies that have purchased them.
