Last month, Gizmodo told you about the time a Boosted Board tried to kill one of our writers.

Now, it turns out, the electric longboards might even be dangerous for people with excellent coordination.

The electric longboard makers issued a warning to their customers today, urging them to discontinue use of the 2nd-generation board and to not charge its battery for the time being.

The company s advisory stated that there is an ongoing investigation related to two incidents in which the swappable lithium-ion battery overheated.

The statement also recommended storing the board away from flammable objects.

Boosted is suspending sales and shipping until the investigation is complete.
