The reviews suggest the plug isn't legal for use in the UK as it doesn't have a fuse..

indeed a dodgy non fused UK plug usually is the tip of the iceberg (and contempt) of the poor manufacturing and also of concern if it's as shown then it is indeed not legal to sell these in the UK, not that Amazon would ever care. These don't meet the UK's fairly strict standards, the UK 3 pin socket is designed to not allow the wrong plug to be inserted or allow the live terminals to be accessible to small items like an inquisitive child's finger.

Any high street retailer selling these would have trading standards force them to remove them from sale immediately.

Sorry but cold cold cold from me

Just received it and can confirm it comes with fused UK plug.
All safety concerns were in the spirit of our times - fake news.

I think it's a valid concern as there's been so many stories about dodgy chargers (though bigclive does a good job reviewing a lot of the Chinese stuff out there) and Chinese companies still ship out those horrible China-UK death adaptors.

No need to panic, it actually comes with standard fused UK plug. All is well.

OK that's good unless it's like the plugs I've had on some cheapo power supplies that have a dangerous fuse fitted in a dangerous plug that looks legit but is not to UK standards, yes that's a thing too. It's not necessarily fake news and all these items need to be treated with great suspicion and scrutiny because so much is faked. Anyway I've said my bit so if you're happy then I won't agitate further.
