Risk
The product poses a risk of : (i) electric shock because: - the plug of the battery charger is non-standardized, the attached transformer adaptor does not comply with the Hungarian plug/socket system. - the age symbol (8 years) and certain technical parameters (voltage) are missing, there are no instructions in Hungarian for the safe use. (ii) burns since the battery charger can be short-circuited and thus the cover overheats. The product does not comply with the Low Voltage Directive and relevant European standards EN-60335 and EN-50088.
