Due to the stark price difference, many people already include this item in the Paraguay shopping list.
But there is a problem, it happens that the toy is prohibited from boarding the aircraft in Brazil.
One reason for the ban is because the lithium-ion batteries of the electric skateboard can overheat, at risk of catching fire or even exploding, which is a great risk when aboard the aircraft. Another worrying factor is that it does not even need to be plugged in, since the problem can occur even with the skateboard in motion.
That is, it is not only on airplanes that the product can explode. Several netizens report cases of explosion and fire in the equipment. No need to search the internet for crash reports on these electric skates.
In Brazil, INMETRO is still creating regulations for the commercialization of the hoverboard. In the United States, manufacturers had to recall more than 500 thousand units, replacing the damaged appliances.
Due to these risks, a decision was made not to allow hoverboards to be carried on airplanes, not even as checked baggage in the cargo hold. For those who are coming to shop and thought to bring one of these, may even be an inconvenience, but it is a safety issue that needs to be respected.
So, be careful: do not buy your hoverboard in Paraguay, because you will not be able to ship the product at the airport. And because Foz do Iguaçu is a border town, it is not possible to send the skateboard either by mail or carrier, since everything that leaves the city needs an original invoice.
