About to import Hoverboards? This article might make you think twice. In this case study, we share the results of our own market research in the Hoverboard industry, and explain why the findings are relevant to buyers in virtually any industry.
We also explain why we believe that the reported incidents will also result in stricter regulations, and standardized certificate submission procedures. But first, let’s recap on what actually went wrong with the Hoverboard.
What went wrong with the Hoverboard?
The first reports of hazardous Hoverboards, or balance scooters as they are also called, came out in the last quarter 2015. Less than a year later, in July 2017, the CPSC recalled half a million non-compliant Hoverboards, in the United States.

Planning to import LED Bulb Lights from China? Keep reading, and learn more about buying Private label LED bulbs, assessing suppliers and technical specifications. In addition, we also explain what you need to know about mandatory product regulations, documents and labeling requirements – and, why ensuring compliance in the LED bulb industry can be really challenging for small buyers.
Buying ODM (Private Label) or OEM (Custom) LED Bulb Lights
Most LED Bulb light manufacturers can offer a range of ODM products. These products are, to a varying degree, made according to a fixed product specification. Buying ODM products is often sufficient, especially for small buyers. That being said, the supplier still expects you to request a draft of their ODM specification. For LED bulb lights, this includes the following:
Bill of Materials
Even though ODM products are supposed to be made according to a fixed set of specifications (i.e., made using the same components on each batch), this is not really the case in China. ODM Bulb Lights can be customised to a certain degree, and this is even expected, by the supplier.

Keep reading, and learn more about common quality issues, and how these can be prevented.
Based on your experience, what are the most common quality issues, that Buyers of Electronic products must be aware of?
There are a number of aspects that come to mind when it comes to quality issues with electronic products, maybe the most common being poor workmanship. The effect of poor workmanship could be a premature product failure, intermittent faults with the functionality of the product, decreased performance levels, and even making the product dangerous for users to use (with the potential of electrical shock).
Most countries and markets, including the United States, the European Union, Canada and Australia, sets strict requirements for the performance and safety of electronics products. This should not come as a surprise, but the complexities of ensuring compliance with overseas electronics regulations and standards, in China, is not as obvious. In this article, we explain how you can avoid compliance issues and forced recalls in three, well, not so simple steps.
Step 1: Confirm Applicable Electronics Standards and Regulations in Your Market
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulates all communications by radio, television, wire, satellite, and cable in the United States. Electronics creates radio frequency energy by themselves, either intentionally (e.g. WiFi enabled Tablets) or unintentionally (e.g. Power Supplies). Therefore, the FCC scope of regulations also apply to most consumer electronics and electrical equipment, and not only products intentionally transmitting radio waves.
Electronic cigarettes are one of the few products that could be considered a “home grown” product in China. Since the first units rolled off the assembly lines in Shenzhen about 10 years ago, the electronic cigarettes have presented itself as a serious alternative to smokers – that still want to take a puff now and then.
