As with all these random makers of electrical extensions/adaptors/etc on Amazon, read the negative reviews, I personally would avoid but make up your own mind.

I know people don't want to read these comments but any product that has more than one review where something goes bang is cause for concern.

That Mac will take a while to charge using that plug
A great example of Amazon selling a lethal product (the worldwide converter plug, second picture in list)

The item can easily electrocute the user! a UK shop would be in serious trouble selling this.

Haha that is very true, it would have been better to plug the USB in to the extension lead instead..

You win some, you lose some. Lol.
Probably doesn't comply to safety standards.
Good thing with Amazon you can return faulty goods for a refund, it could have been a bad batch, the person had overloaded it with all sorts of electricals.. the possibilities are endless

That is indeed a possibility, as is the possibility it's of variable or questionable quality, it's very much unknown like the vast majority of these things sold on Amazon, many will not meet strict British safety standards, many will have faked British safety standards stamped on them and that makes it so hard to tell what is good and what is not.

The sheer contempt and audacity when it comes to safety that some Chinese factories show never fails to amaze. Making things that could so easily cause big problems and yet you never hear of a recall of these items unlike a well known brand that gets absolutely roasted in the media if a washing machine catches fire or car fails to brake.

Yes you can return items of course but with electrical items like this I don't want any chance of a blow out that could damage kit, harm someone or cause a fire.

They may well just badge equipment that some other random factory churns out in China, that's the problem, there are so many faceless factories churning out tons of this stuff and it's resold under numerous names that you've rarely heard of. It can catch out some well known companies that badge OEM kit but when it's a no name company badging a no name product you just don't know what you're really going to receive. I doubt the vast majority of these things meet any British standards, or have approved plugs and fuses and cables.

I have to give most of them credit for some reasonably good looking kit and computer generated images but the innards are probably a different story.

Once they stop the pidgeon English and print sentances without stupid google translated text we will be screwed and won't know what's what.

Plenty of Chinese manufacturers would whip your grandmother with an extension lead if it saved them 5p. I don't know where I draw the line in buying Chinese unknowns, but there is one somewhere and Amazon has totally jumped the shark in allowing their store to be flooded with junk. In some categories it's almost unusable.

Same reason why hotukdeals allow deals like these I reckon. Especially with companies like Gearbest and Banggood. Would love to see how much money they recieve off those two.

Bit late when your tablet catches fire because it's been fed 240V and burns your house down though.

Seriously, there's things you can bodge and skimp on (and I most certainly do - I live on this bloody site these days FML) but mains electrical stuff isn't such an area unless you are particularly eager to try out a new hair style or test your home insurance. We can easily get damned cheap great value genuinely standards complaint electrical bits easily enough anyway, so why risk it?

Scary reviews
do they come with any sort of insurance?
I bought one from Belkin for not much more which insures me for up to £20k if the surge protector fails

I didn't know you could sue a company in CHINA for a house fire.

A bad batch!? Does this company not have random sample testing? Has this company done a recall for affected devices? Errm NO because the makers know it is a shoddy item.

If you overloaded it with electricals...the fuse should pop well BEFORE anything else caught fire, as the fuse should be rated lower than the wiring inside.

What other possibilities would you like me to debunk because these possibilities are NOT endless.

Let me start with some other possibilities for you:

Water got into the strip.... fuse should blow.

Somebody short circuited it.... FUSE SHOULD BLOW.

Anything else?

Unless it's a fake fuse that have been shown to sometimes take over 20amps before blowing (or exploding!) when something so innocent and important like a fuse cannot be trusted that's a big red flag for me. So many fake items it's not even worth the bother.
10% of reviewers saying there is a fault for this type of device is a cause for concern. The device exploding and catching fire should be a warning to avoid this at any price.

well you really would think so but clearly those are odds people seem happy with.
Code doesnt work and plug probably unsafe anyway so cold from me.

Code doesnt work and plug probably unsafe anyway so cold from me.


I just checked and the code does indeed work. You have to select the right seller, probably why you failed, you were not paying attention to the instructions the OP provided and as for being unsafe, probably??! Well that helps nobody, probably you have no clue and just guessed this knowledge.

Same goes for the people here pointing out the Amazon reviews, not a single one of the negative reviews has a picture, if something melted, like their phone charger then where's the picture and how do we not know they weren't using some dodgy phone charger? Weird that someone says stay away because of the negative reviews, well that means stay away from everything on Amazon..

There's a really good review there showing a USB tester and they seemed to have opened the insides and judge it, they gave it 4/5, I found that to be more convincing than a 1 line review claiming their phone cable was in flames (no picture).
