Homra Magic Ball LED-Light
Today we draw your attention to the LED light lamp in the shape of a magic ball light from Homra. This product was recognized as hazardous by the Dutch Authorities.
There is a serious risk for users to get an electric shock. The accessible wires have inadequate insulation. Live parts can become accessible. A user could touch a live part and receive an electric shock. The product does not comply with the requirements of the Low Voltage Directive and of the relevant European standards EN 60598-1 and EN 60598-2.
