Bradford Digital Ltd are selling incorrectly marked CE power supplies in the UK which is illegal. They do not have the correct Conformité Européenne marking on they have the China Export marking . This can be worked out by the spacing between the C and the E on the logo. Google this and it will explain how to determine if its a dodgy, untested, poor quality, cheap electrical item. If so it will have the China Export marking. This means they have not been fully tested and should not be sold in the UK. They are being sold on www.bradforddigital.com website and also on eBay.com

The seller has been informed but takes no notice and continues to sell them. They have been reported to Trading Standards.

You are better off paying for one in Maplin or somewhere similar so you know the CE mark will be legal and you have no risk of causing a fire.

Non CE Approved Power Supplies being sold on eBay

eBay sellers are advertising they are selling CE approved power supplies (psu).

When you receive them they are NOT CE approved.

You pay through the nose for a CE approved one so you should expect one!

I have had this problem with two eBay sellers.

I will look into what CE approved exactly means but please think; is it worth your house catching on fire?

Just watch out for hundreds of eBay sellers selling this crap.
