So you don't want me to check your staff's phone chargers Mr Client, hmmmm, perhaps you should read http://www.smh.com.au/nsw/warning-over-usb-chargers-after-woman-dies-from-apparent-electrocution-20140626-zsngd.html?eid=email:nnn-13omn656-ret_newsl-membereng:nnn-04/11/2013-news_am-dom-news-nnn-smh-u&campaign_code=13INO010&et_bid=20834324&promote_channel=edmail&mbnr=MzQ0MTUwMg

Hi southseas

It's alarming how often this type of thing is occurring. It seems that in each E-news we release there is a new sad story where people have fallen victim to faulty chargers. I know that it can be tempting to purchase cheaper alternatives to genuine products but after reading articles like this it is definitely not worth the risk. I would personally advise that chargers that do not meet the relevant country's safety standards not even tested and are replaced or disposed of instead.
Thanks for sharing this.
