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.
Thanks and kind regards
