The product poses a serious risk of electric shock as when tested the earth wire in the supply cord had been left cut off. The product was not earthed and there was basic insulation in contact with accessible live parts. The plug that was fitted on the supply cord did not comply with BS1363 and the fuse did not comply with BS 1362. The fuse was shorter than the minimum length stated in the standard and contained insufficient granular filler, which is required to ensure safe operation in fault conditions. The product was not accompanied by adequate instructions and does not comply fully with the marking requirements of the relevant standard.

The product does not comply with the Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 2016.
