    Warning on Trustfire Battery Chargers Power Cords

    Hello all
    Just a warning to anyone that has purchased a trustfire battery charger .
    Check the Power cords supplied with the chargers carefully , the power cords that are beeing supplied
    look ok but actually are dangerous and could cause an electric shock or worse case a fire .
    The cords are marked as (KEMA-KEUR H03VVH2-F 0.75MM X2C SINOFAIR NL-2729)
    The cords have a weekness near the mains plug and the cables used inside resemble phone cables not power cables.
    we have tested 30 cords which were supplied with trustfire chargers and 25 of them caused a short when slightly flexed.
    we have recalled all ac cords sold and replaced them with proper AU standard figure 8 power cords .
    If you are in possesion of one of these power cables you should replace then or return them to the place of purchase
    Below are two pictures of the power cable shorted causing power safety switches to trip.

    All the best

    Have to say, I'm liking Vapour_tron's diligence in posting these battery charger issues.
    They could have simply posted warnings on their site &/or in their shop, while emailing the customers that had purchased from them but this type of diligence in informing AVF members is outstanding.

    Big thumbs up to V-t

    Thank you Flea and Noe for your comments. I dont get on AussieVapers that much any more as its been made very clear
    I am not really welcome here. Still for reasons unknown , but when we test shipments that arrive if any major problems are found
    i do try to get the message out. Nearly all units are imported from China and hong Kong and most units are ok but every now and then
    cheap manufacturing could result in someone getting hurt. I thank you again and all the best
    Regards
    Andrew

    I don't think you are not welcome. Just hard to justify buying from bricks and mortar for most people as it is that much more expensive. Also, I wasn't really impressed by your product range and I think a few others agreed. I mean its all great for a noob to get started in a shop that they can walk around in and get advice from what I'm sure are friendly staff but alot of the regulars on here are past that stage.

    Please don't take offence to any of this as that's not my intention because I think what your attempting to do is great but think of this more as constructive criticism/an explanation.

    I don't think it's right that you feel that way because this is generally quite a friendly forum and maybe if you did stick around you would get feedback from experienced vapers which may well benefit your business?

    Now I feel like I'm dragging on a bit so I'm gonna stop, but I think it's great that we have a store down here in Melb and I will make my way there one day to check it out!
    Current set up:
    EHPro Panzer and Kayfun Lite Plus V2 Clone.

    I don't think you are unwelcome. What I believe happened was, that Jato went through the vendors that had not posted in a while & put them into the archived section.
    I'm sure if you PM Jato & ask to be reinstated something will be worked out for you.
