LATARKA AKUMULATOROWA LED
Product description
Rechargeable LED torch. The battery can be charged via the built-in plug with telescopic pins. A plug adapter is supplied with the product. Packaging: colourful cardboard box.
Risk
The pins of the built-in plug and plug adapter do not have an insulating collar. The plug adapter allows single-pole insertion of a plug, leaving the remaining free live pin accessible. The cover for the LEDs can be removed by hand during charging, leaving live parts accessible. The cross-sectional area of the core of the wires is insufficient: in case of a short circuit the wires may overheat and can cause a fire. The heat and flame resistance of the insulating material that hold the pins of the built-in plug in position is insufficient. The product does not comply with the requirements of the Low Voltage Directive and the relevant standards EN 60598 and IEC 60884.
