Germany

Category: Electrical appliances

Product: Mains adaptor

Brand: Neuling

Name:

Type/number of model: SB 811; serial n°08381.

Batch number/Barcode:

OECD Portal Category:

Description: Adaptor for connecting electrical appliances with American plugs to German (European) mains outlets.

Country of origin: China

Electric shock

The product poses a risk of electric shock because:

- live parts can be touched when the mains adaptor has not yet been fully inserted into the socket:

- the two pins of the plug are not insulated, and are conductive and exposed along their entire length,

- the same fault occurs when an earthing contact plug is inserted into the product;

- it is possible to insert safety plugs, thereby disabling the protective conductor function. The upstream circuit breaker does not recognise contact with a current-consuming appliance in the event of a fault. In particular, unreliable plug extensions can be produced;

- euro and safety plugs could be improperly inserted (possibility of touching the exposed plug pin, risk of electric shock);

- Protection Class I (protective conductor) incorrectly indicated on the packaging and mains electricity incorrectly indicated as 220 volts (should be 230 volts).

The product does no comply with the Low Voltage Directive.

Voluntary measures: Voluntary withdrawal from the market by the distributor.

Drowning

The product poses a risk of drowning because, even if the boat is inflated correctly, due to a material defect the both of the side air chambers can be ripped and break at the same time causing a "boom"-sound. The raft is being sold together with a wooden board for motor attachment although it is classified as a ”type 1” raft which can only be operated manually, with oars (EN ISO 6185-1). Many customers may install an electric outboard or a petrol engine in their raft as the instructions on motor assembly are not very clear, causing an explosion hazard.

One accident reported: a raft exploded while in water overnight. The raft has two separate air chambers on the side tubes, which both had deflated due to a material defect. The product does not comply with the Recreational Craft Directive 2003/44/EC.
