My neighbour leaves on his speaker for hours (loud with bass) while he is not at home. Is it safe (either the speaker is plugged in or battery-powered)? Or is that correct, that it can cause fire in both case?

We do not recommend that appliances are left on unattended.

However, there is less risk from a low current device such as a speaker than lager devices such as washing machines and tumble driers.
