E-bike fire safety warning

Trading Standards advice to anyone purchasing an e-bike, e-scooter or spare batteries and chargers: 
• only purchase e-bikes, e-scooters, chargers and batteries from trusted retailers
• never buy fake batteries or chargers, and ensure that any device you use displays a valid UKCA or CE mark
• check that separate components, such as batteries and chargers, are compatible with one another
• register your product with the manufacturer to validate any warranties on components including batteries, registering makes it easier for manufacturers to contact you in the event of safety or recall information
• check any products you have bought are not subject to a product recall, you can do this by checking Electrical Safety First’s website or the government website
• follow London Fire Brigade advice on charging the scooter safely, last year they attended over 116 fires involving e-bikes and e-scooters
If you think the e-scooter or charger you have purchased is unsafe, stop using it and report to trading standards via Citizens Advice consumer service on 0808 223 1133
