2 mode model or £1 extra for 3 modes at Lidl....
Our present one is a rubclean one, rubbed it clean the last time & as always the rubber nozzles fell off.
It's easy to rub one off!
These led shower heads don't last long on my experience .

I wouldn't worry. You get a larger electric shock when you step out of the car while wearing your 1980's shell suit!

Better be careful of basically any power shower then

That's why they're making a big deal about it not being mains powered. 230V AC from the mains kills you. An AA battery at 1.5V doesn't. This generates enough of a voltage to light LEDs? Then it generates about 3V internally from a turbine somewhere. With the power of 2 AAs at most it'll be safe.
"No batteries required"
There's no battery, the water flow provides the energy to power the led. It's just done by magic really.
Make sure you have the water pressure for it otherwise it wont work
I've had one of these for around two years, still works perfect and although not always accurate it does give a reasonably good indication of water heat and couldn't do without it! It's also good for teaching youngsters kids the meaning of hot etc with the colours..........
Can this be used on electric shower or mains feed only.
Seems like it's probably going to be cheap tat but I've given it a bash anyway for the novelty. My showerheads probably a bit foosty and old now anyway.

Much better flow than my previous one (which was ok ) but seriously how much does this thing need before the LEDs work ?

It's more to do with whether the shower head itself is designed for high and low pressure. And it won't be designed for low pressure, because that's a UK peculiarity.

So effectively it's a hit or miss with UK showers ,yet it's sold in the UK . Shame because it's a good size and good flow but now I'm wondering if I should take it back

I'm confused: if it works, why take it back?

The Shower flow works brilliantly but the Led heat sensor doesn't , I've swapped it for another one just to see but if the Led still doesn't work I'm keeping it as it's a really good shower head even without the advertised feature , still good for the price

Actually, it isnt the voltage that kills you.

Any qualified* electrician will tell you "Volts jolts, current kills".

I personally have had 12KV through me and survived with only minor entry/exit wounds, because there was no current behind it.

*That obviously disbars 99% of the population of Lancashire, which consists almost entirely of cowboys claiming one trade or another.

I'm no electrician but I thought it was volts that allowed current in that a human body's basically a resistor so the higher the voltage the greater the current flow. Micro-amps are fine unless they hit your heart, amps are not because you go all Ark of the Covenant and burn.

Anyway, the point is these are pretty darned safe even in a failure situation as there just isn't enough power being generated at the head for anything unsafe to happen.

I = V/R Current equals Voltage over Resistance; Current given in Amps

The minimum voltage required to kill you is 50 volts, but you need a very VERY weak heart. (This is why the domestic voltage in the USA is +55/-55 to give 110volts)

The minimum current is a lot less, 10/1000th amp will kill the weak and throw the strong across a room, 20/1000ths will kill just about anyone.

Static electricity is in the tens of thousands of volts range, but doesnt kill you because the current flow is very, very low (~2-5/10000th).
Car electrics run to tens of amps, but wont kill you because the voltage is only 12v.

R (resistance), in this case is skin resistance; if you have very dry skin, your resistance is higher and less current flows; my skin is so dry I can and have held 240volts and not felt a thing (or only a mild tingle). However, touch 240volts with wet or sweaty hands and BOOM!! angel and harp time.
