Video: Electric Scooter Battery Fails And Explodes

The video title is wrong. It’s an eScooter, not an eSkateboard.

[Caution] electric skateboard explosion at home. Huge Blast!!!

This could be China or Singapore or Hong Kong. We don’t know.

The eScooter brand? Also unknown. [Same-day update: Another posting of the video claims it’s a Speedway 4.]

The type of battery? Unknown. But I wouldn’t be surprised if they were cheap generic Chinese batteries.

The scariest part is actually the chain reaction that occurs after he pulls the plug out of the AC outlet. Common sense says that without juice flowing in, everything should calm down. The opposite happens.

Never charge overnight. And get a fire extinguisher that can handle LiOn battery fires. Failing that, have a bucket of sand nearby.
