Product title
Mains adaptor
Product description
Adaptor for operating euro electrical appliances in the USA and various Asian countries; packaged on cardboard covered with transparent plastic.
Risk
The product poses a risk of electric shock because: - live parts can be touched when the euro plug or earth contact plug are not fully inserted into the mains adaptor, - 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, - euro and safety plugs could be improperly inserted (possibility of touching the exposed plug pin, risk of electric shock), - connection of mains adaptors labelled USA > BRD / BRD > USA in order to form a plug extension, - protection Class 1 (protective conductor) incorrectly indicated, - rated current is incorrectly indicated as 250 volts (should be XX amps), - failure to provide an adequate description of the missing protective conductor indicating the potential dangers resulting from the use of Protection Class I (protective conductors) electrical appliances, - the information that the product may only be used abroad is misleading.
