Don't risk this setting your house on fire

So, here we have a mains electrical item of doubtful origin with an incompatible US (110v) plug and needing an adaptor to use it in the UK. Won't meet any UK or European standards and it might not be just your own home it burns down and lives it'll put at risk.
DON'T DO IT!

It's not a UK plug looking at the deal pick.

This is not a UK plug ,just to be aware .Although it's good price.

Might fit a bathroom shaver socket?

It says upto 220v will it be ok with our 240v sockets

Don't risk this setting your house on fire

The video link goonertillidie posted uses the word period so IT'S American

Period, that's bloody confusing.

Nope - US plug.

Ordered, got a spare EU adaptor from the phone I just purchased from gearbeast.

Option of US or EU plug.

Ordered EU plug great for holidays. Thanks OP

The UK bathroom socket and continental Euro sockets are actually spaced differently - it won't fit (by design).

I'll get this to put in the travel bag. Handy to go with the EU-plugged USB charger I have too. Thanks, OP! (P.S. I have 2 kids - I'm not afraid of the dark, personally.. lol)

And here we have a user that doesn't bother to read the website or the posts above before posting drivel.
a) You can specify EU plug
b) It's transformer can handle 110V to 240V
c) It most likely comes from China. Along with 98% of the other electrical items in your home.

No need to be rude! I acknowledge the EU plug point (still not UK or bathroom) but stand by my concerns. Let the buyer decide but based on a reasonable caution. Frankly, when properly certified UK stuff isn't that expensive I'd be cautious despite the very low price.

cheap and cheerful! ordered 4, let's hope it arrives, thanks :-)

what a waste of a socket

If the thing had a motion sensor to come on then it would be worth considering, but pointless especially as it's not even a UK plug!

It all depends on whether it adheres to UK electrical standards or whether it's cheap dangerous crap that doesn't.

Made in China means very little these days, if it's from a decent brand then it should be built to safe standards, if it's built by some company that ignores safety standards then it could catch fire, electrocute or such like.

You've only got to watch some bigClivedotcom videos about all the Chinese crap he tests to see that much of this stuff is absolutely terrible. That's not to say all Chinese products are terrible, clearly many are made to very high standards... it's knowing which to buy and which to avoid.

Useful but it occupies a socket, it would be more useful if it had a socket on the face to allow you to plug in another device.

I love cheap stuff.

I love blindingly amazing deals for Chinese goods.

I don't combine those conditions with items I'd plug into the wall.

You are wrong my friend as continental EU plug pins are spaced similarly (if not the same) as UK shaver socket holes. I used several low power devices equipped with continental EU plugs (but only those with 2 pins) and connected to UK shaver socket and they all work with no problems. The key word here is LOW POWER devices.

I'd feel safer buying a low lumen led bulb available for about a pound and leave that on all night, maybe 62p more but feel I would be doing the best thing for my family.

Based on your deal posting record I don't think I'd be inclined to trust your judgement on a safety related product.

Zapals ? wtf ? I'd love to mention that HUKD seems to do anything to chase the cash nowadays and will end up ruining it's credibility with waves of dodgy Chinese tat, but as it seems the Mods are trigger happy with suspension powers, I won't do so.

Dude, just chill dude! Most of the stuff we buy are made in China, and they have a EU standards stamp just slapped on....

The UK shaver plug (BS 4573) has 0.2 in (5.08 mm) diameter pins 0.625in (15.88mm) long and 0.656in (16.66mm) apart.
The 'Europlug' has two round pins measuring 4.8 by 19mm (0.189 by 0.748in), spaced 19mm (0.748in) apart.

It's the difference of imperial and metric.

Your experiences are due to using a shaver socket unit which complies to BS EN 61558-2-5 which include an isolation transformer and usually accept multiple two-pin plug types including BS 4573, Europlug and Australian.
It's not a guarantee that an EU plug will fit in any UK shaver socket. Some do, if you have a more tolerable shaving unit.

Worth noting the reverse: a UK shaver plug will not fit in a EU socket at all. It will need an adapter.

But in this context - yes, you could use this night light in a shaver socket most likely... Depends if that's your intended destination for it.
The shaving socket unit is only good for about 4.5amps - so it will charge a toothbrush, a phone, a shaver (kinda the point!) or this night light. Try plugging anything that pulls any more juice, and it'll just fry the transformer inside (which is there as the 'wet room protection' which allows the socket to be in the bathroom in the first place).

Does this?



Even if it did have an EU stamp on it, it doesn't mean it's actually checked and verified to those safety standards. It's all a bit of a farce. Equally, the lack of the stamp doesn't mean it's shoddy and will burn down your house.

He also shows up some well know brands and their shoddy internal designs and lack of fail-safes. There's also no guarantee that the internal design stays the same through product revisions, when the external casing looks identical.

It's always a risk you take when converting 240V to 12V and the circuitry that does it.

At least we don't have hideously outdated mains wiring that relies on fuses in each electrical item which this doesn't have... Oh wait..
