01 Jun: Hoverboards Are Rolling Into Best Buy Stores

For the first time, hoverboards – or “self-balancing scooters” – are coming to U.S. Best Buy stores and BestBuy.com.

Swagway’s Swagtron hoverboards, the T1 and T3, will start to hit shelves in June. Pre-orders are available now on BestBuy.com.

Swagway is one of the first hoverboard brands to apply the new government-mandated UL 2272 safety certification mark. That means the devices have passed a level of safety standards verified by UL, an independent safety science company.

Hoverboards were all the buzz last year, but there were reports of safety concerns, including reports of the gadgets starting on fire.
