Hoverboards are the hot toy ticket this year. But if they’re on your holiday wish list, you might be disappointed: Delta Air Lines is keeping them grounded. The airline is banning the “self-balancing personal transportation devices” in carry-on and checked baggage. They say the “poorly labeled,” powerful lithium-ion batteries powering them — often exceeding government limits for being aboard aircraft — pose a safety risk. Delta’s ban takes effect Friday, with Jet Blue also joining in. And with word that more than a dozen airlines around the world have stopped accepting bulk shipments of those lithium-ion batteries, hoverboard manufacturers may have to wait on assembling them until after the holidays.
