Recorded Webinar: Personal E-Transportation: Hoverboards, Drones, Electric Bicycles, & Beyond (Free)


Personal e-Transportation systems are receiving a lot of attention due to the growth and innovation in this market. While exciting, the new technology puts people in close contact with advanced energy systems that must face the rigors of real-life use, and these unique safety challenges need to be addressed.

UL has been monitoring this trend and is prepared to help manufacturers and retailers alike by offering electrical system testing for various e-mobility products. UL recently published updates to existing standards and released the new UL 3030, Outline of Investigation for UAVs. The following three UL outlines & standards are at the core of compliance for these innovative light EV products centered on personal e-Transportation:

  • UL 2272, Electrical Systems for Personal e-Mobility (formerly titled “Electrical Systems for Self-Balancing Scooters”) was updated to include e-mobility devices that are not self-balancing. Published November 21, 2016.
  • UL 2849, Outline of Investigation for Electric Bicycles - Electrically Power Assisted Cycles (EPAC Bicycles), Electric Scooters, and Electric Motorcycles, was updated to include all over-the-road cycles (e-bikes, e-motorbikes and e-scooters). Published November 11, 2016.
  • UL 3030, Outline of Investigation for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) or Drones - to cover UAV intended to be operated by trained pilots. Published December 12, 2016

Additionally, the webinar will provide an update on UL 2743 for Portable Power Packs (Published October 13, 2016). This standard includes portable power sources for use where normal grid power is not available as well as use in emergency situations. These applications have also seen growth as more products become portable and are used with this type of electrical energy source.


  • Inform on the development of outlines & standards as well as incidents reported to safety organizations such as CPSC
  • Address critical safety considerations for lithium ion battery systems and chargers used in Personal E-Transportation equipment
  • Update on existing publications (ANSI/UL 2272, ANSI/UL 2743, & UL 2849, Outline of Investigation) including national accreditation status
  • Provide details on new UAV publication UL 3030, Outline of Investigation
  • Share next steps for regulatory requirements
