Product title
Mains adaptor
Product description
Adaptor for connecting electrical appliances with American plugs to German (European) mains outlets.
Risk
The product poses a risk of electric shock because: - live parts can be touched when the mains adaptor has not yet been fully inserted into the socket: - the two pins of the plug are not insulated, and are conductive and exposed along their entire length, - the same fault occurs when an earthing contact plug is inserted into the product; - it is possible to insert safety plugs, thereby disabling the protective conductor function. The upstream circuit breaker does not recognise contact with a current-consuming appliance in the event of a fault. In particular, unreliable plug extensions can be produced; - euro and safety plugs could be improperly inserted (possibility of touching the exposed plug pin, risk of electric shock); - Protection Class I (protective conductor) incorrectly indicated on the packaging and mains electricity incorrectly indicated as 220 volts (should be 230 volts). The product does no comply with the Low Voltage Directive.
