A lighting chain with star shaped LED’s. White controller box at one end and a white plug at the other end.

The product has been recalled as the lack of mechanical strength presents a risk of electric shock. When impact tests were performed, the plastic controller broke open, giving users access to live parts. The creepage and clearance distances between live and neutral on the control PCB tracks were less than 1.0mm, below the required 1.5mm clearance and 2.5mm creepage. No user instructions were provided and some of the required documentation and markings were not present.

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