Fires Caused By Counterfeit Goods On The Rise
A new report was issued which showed a link between an increase in UK house fires due to the use of counterfeit phone chargers.
The dangers of using counterfeit phone chargers are due to manufactures using second rate parts which don't meet the criteria set out under UK safety regulations. Customers who purchase them run the risk of both personal injury and causing a house fire.
We would recommend that should you require a new phone charger, that you approach the mobile phone manufacture and purchase one direct from them. This item although perhaps a little more expensive than a counterfeit one, however it will meet all UK safety regulations.
