Fidget spinners have come full circle in rapidly spinning from obscurity to annoyance in record time and much like their hoverboard cousins they are now catching fire!  Because everything now comes with an option to connect to technology, two separate cases of Bluetooth enabled fidget spinners have caught fire while charging.  The Consumer Product Safety Commission said that it is investigating these incidents in Michigan and Alabama (warning of Autoplay) and recommend never charging a product with batteries overnight while you are sleeping or when you are away, follow the manufacturer’s instructions and use the charger from the manufacturer that is designed specifically for your device.  Experts say the sheer speed in which these products are rushed into production leaves safety in question.
