    ** The only strong correlation with quality and safety is with PSUs that
    are bought on-line from dealers in China or Honk Kong etc. Most a very poor
    in both respects.

    If you chose buy one that way - then YOU are the legal importer and YOU are
    legally liable for the safety of the unit.

    Big example of " buyer beware ".

    I doubt it.

    Take a very close look at one next time. How close are the C and E?
    Compare to known good hardware. The EU logo has a horizontal distance
    equal to the inner radius of the "C" (minus line width). The other
    doesn't (horizontal space about a line width).

    So what the hell is the 'narrow CE' mark?

    China Export. ;-)

    ** You sure are SOME KIND of fuckwit - pal !!!!!!!

    ** FFS - the CE marks are * BOGUS * because the units do NOT comply !!


    Compliance with CE also means full electrical safety compliance as well.

    This became Euro law with the Low Voltage Directive.

    Plus in most countries ( including Australia ) such items are " proscribed "
    so they must have certification from a registered testing lab prior to going
    on sale.

  6. It's obvious the UL listed charger (first one?) isn't really a UL listed
    charger ;(

    The plastic shield mention on one, probably mylar or some other 94v-0
    material is legit to use to meet requirements. The writer made it sound
    like it was unorthodox.

    I try to avoid Chinese stuff, and instead prefer Taiwanese/Japan
    manufactured goods, they are light years ahead in quality.
