Most interseting Steve,I wonder what route these are taking to come into the country? When you say water purifiers some of these things run off ELV system dont they via a TX with usually a very small supply flex. I agree with DJK sounds like an accident waiting to happen. Job for the trading standards I think . Makes you wonder what the rest of it is like?

One more bit of info, the unit turns out to be a water chiller unit.

It happens from time to time that the unscrupulous manufacturers substitute proper cords for cheap illegal versions. BS1363 without fuses, grounded 10A computer cordsets with Europlugs on... I reported one of the latter to the authorities a couple of years ago.

We could eliminate a lot of this junk if we simply stopped importing anything with "Made in China" on it. [Linked Image]

These unfused plug is made by Taiwanese manufacturer.
8 years ago I bought an external parallel port to IDE device, that sh*t was in the box.

Google groups:
Un-fused 13A plugs - legal in UK? Unfused 13A plugs
Chinesese manufacturer made fused plugs, quality varies from brand to brand.
Don't blame "Made in China". Imoprter had responsibility for their product.
13A plug in different standard
Ireland- IS 401 UK-BS1363
