The product’s internal circuits are not sufficiently isolated from water, and the internal build quality is poor. The wires can transmit current to the metal heating element thus posing an electrocution risk. Furthermore, there is no protection on the metal heating element when activated, increasing the risk of burns to the user or burning objects due to its high temperature.
The product does not comply with the requirements of the Low Voltage Directive and with the European standard EN 60335.
