Electric shock.

Models affected

The product is CE-marked and is marked with the code PAT200930196087.4.


Travel adaptor for multiple plug-types with interchangeable pins for USA, Japan, Australia, Europe and the UK.

The product presents a serious risk of electric shock as it is too small for a standard UK socket, and the plug pins are too close to the edge of the plug. The user could receive an electric shock when unplugging, or plugging in, the plug from the socket. It is also possible to insert a single current-carrying pin, leaving the other live pin accessible. The adaptor was also insufficiently earthed, presenting a risk of fire.

The product does not meet the requirements of the Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 2016.
