Re: CE mark has been pointless for years!
Oh but there are several "CE" marks. One with a microscopic difference in the length of the mittle finger of the "E" that actually reads "China Export" on the product sticker.
Gets somewhat scary when the charger for a motorization upgrade for hand moved pallet carts has a standard 2 pin euro plug for the wall outlet and the very same type of plug every PC has in its power supply as connector for the 48VDC LiPo battery - with the outer pins for plus and minus and what would be PE/earth not assigned. Translation software says its called "rubber plug", german word is "Kaltgerätestecker" due to historical reasons.
When it comes to any kind of security features, even the cheapest italan kits are way better - and i mean noname stuff even under the already shoddy ZAPI "standards".
So why not make the sale of such dangers a criminal offense ? Less obvious deathtraps are even more critical.
With all the self praise on the online sellers sites, what could anyone search for ? Faked fivestar-"reviews"?
Technical information on those products is often false or misinformingly worded, photos dont show the actual product or hide the relevant parts. Letting the seller sites go unchecked an uncontested and letting the customer take all the risk is inappropriate - much more so if the customer is not the least bit tech savvy.
And yes, i am called whenever some tech allergic relatives go onlineshopping to mitigate the risks.
