Product description
Rechargeable torch with 4 LEDs. The torch can be charged by means of the built-in plug with folding pins. Blister packaging.
Risk
The cover for the LEDs can be removed by hand, leaving live parts accessible when the torch is being charged. The pins of the built-in plug do not have an insulating collar. The dimensions of the plug are such that the user may touch the live pins when connecting the plug. The cross-sectional area of the core of the wires is insufficient: in case of a short circuit the wires may overheat leading to a fire. The product does not comply with the requirements of the Low Voltage Directive and the relevant European standard EN 60598.
