Risk of electrocution

About Consumption reminderwhich warns about consumer products requiring recall due to risk or malfunction, states that “the power plug conductors are not sufficiently protected.”

“In the event of detachment, the creepage distance between the active parts of the conductors and the accessible parts is less than the prescribed value of 4.8 mm (3.9 mm measured),” the website states. This therefore poses a risk of electrocution for users.

Refunds are granted to people who purchased the charger and returned it to the various points of sale, until April 30, 2024. If in doubt, Rappel Conso recommends calling the following number: 08 25 05 62 60.
