The power supply unit poses a risk of electric shock and fire because:
- The internal connections rely upon solder to maintain their position. A loose wire could reduce creepage distances and clearances.
- It is not designed or manufactured to withstand foreseeable overloads.
- It has inadequately sized pins which could cause damage to the socket resulting in overheating or arcing.
The product does not comply with the Low Voltage Directive (LVD) and the relevant European standard EN 61558 and the relevant national standard BS 1361.
