Electric shock, burns and fire.
The product poses a risk of :
(i) electric shock because:
-the plug of the battery charger (353NRF) is non-standardized, therefore the live pins are accessible when connecting to the power supply, the cover of the battery charger D4120-09-300 can be removed without using a tool, which may entail the accessibility of live parts.
- the age symbol (8 years), certain safety instructions and warnings referring to the battery charger are missing.
(ii) burns and fire since the batteries can be charged in the toy car, they are removable without using a tool and interchangeable with the dry battery. The cover of the battery charger significantly overheats during abnormal use; the contacts of the battery holder of the remote control can be short-circuited.
The product does not comply with the Low Voltage Directive and relevant European standards EN-60335 and EN-50088.
