For the others, many faults were noted: too fragile, insufficient insulation, lack of protection against overloads and short-circuits, components badly fixed.
“I hope that this is not the case for all brands and if it is, I hope that there will be research that will be done so that we are not in danger”, says a citizen. As a precaution, the UFC-Que Choisir recommends to avoid charging the phone at night, to leave the charger always plug in and to prefer the original accessory. Contacted Thursday, January 23, the crackdown on fraud confirmed that it had opened an investigation to withdraw dangerous products from the market.
