Product description
Lighting chain with 140 LED lamps. Packaging: colourful cardboard box
Risk
The cross-sectional area of the external and internal wires is too small and the wires could overheat. The design of the cord extension socket enables the single-pole insertion of a plug leaving the remaining live pin accessible. The wire ends soldered to the terminals of the flashing unit and the LEDs are not adequately protected against pulling and twisting and could detach. The accessible basic insulated wires can come into contact with sharp edges of the flashing switch and control unit. The insulation provided by the shrink tubing for the bulbs is inadequate. The product is not protected against moisture but is recommended for outdoor use. The product does not comply with the requirements of the Low Voltage Directive and the relevant European standard EN 60598.
