The product poses a serious risk of electric shock since:

  • the insulation is not sufficient (only single insulation cover the connections),
  • the cross section of the core is too small,
  • the length of the cable is too short (0,91/0,89 m),
  • the cable inlets are sharp,
  • the wires are not secured against loosening, they can get damaged.

The product does not comply with the Low Voltage Directive and the relevant European standard EN 60598.
