New Delhi: An Australian company has built Hovervault, a fire-resistant bag, which will prevent a malfunctioning hover board from burning one's house down.
According to Mashable, it is designed to allow users to charge their hover board in the bag, as well as transport it and it claims to add an extra level of protection.
Hovervault's James Stewart told Mashable Australia he was inspired to make the bag after using similar products when transporting his own hobby drones.
He purchased speciality-fibreglass pouches, known as Lipo bags, after discovering many drones have lithium polymer batteries that are known to be unstable.
"The bags basically suffocate a fire and stop it from becoming a raging inferno," he said.
"You have to respect these batteries. They are lithium-ion batteries in the hoverboards. They are very small and very cheap and they are high output. It doesn't always work together," he added.
Hovervault is not the first such bag to market - there is a HoverCover fire resistant hoverboard bag available on Amazon.
Made by Newtex, a supplier of fire resistant fabrics and coatings, it ships to the U.S., Canada and Europe but neither to Asia nor Australia. The Hovervault will ship globally.
