Mobile phone charger could electrocute users

Mobile phone charger could electrocute usersNews brought to you by Skint Tariffs. Providers of price comparison for cheap international calls.

A generic mobile phone charger has been imported into the UK that could electrocute anybody who uses it.

Trading Standards officers are hunting the importer of the device, which officers from Buckinghamshire County Council found on sale as a mobile phone charger, complete with a micro USB cable.

If the charger overheats it could cause electrocution, so could be a danger to people taking their phones abroad to make cheap international calls in sunny locations.

Chris Holden, senior Trading Standards officer at Buckinghamshire County Council, stated that though hundreds of the items, which are trading for up to £10, have been seized, many are still on sale.

"The deeper we delve, the more we find. The point is that these chargers are dangerous," he said.

"The problem is the circuitry in the body of the charger, and the pins are too close together. If it is forced into a plug socket, it can cause overheating."

A similar scare happened last year in Suffolk when a customer's charger exploded as she used it.ADNFCR-1494-ID-18698439-ADNFCR
