Product description
Rechargeable torch with an LED. The housing is made of yellow plastic with a black switch. The battery can be charged with the telescopic pins of the built-in plug. Packaging: a colourful cardboard box. Inside the packaging there is a two-pin, flat plug.
Risk
The product poses a risk of electric shock and fire because: ·        When plugging it into a socket, the user could touch the live pins. ·        The cross-section area of the core of the internal wires is too small and in case of a short-circuit the internal wires may overheat. ·        The protective bulb cover can be removed by hand during charging, exposing live parts of the LED panel. ·        The plastic part near the pins is not sufficiently heat and fire resistant and may catch fire. The product does not comply with the Low Voltage Directive and the relevant European standard EN 60598.
