Why the Chinese laptop power cable market is fraught with danger

Some of the laptop chargers being sold in the UK, many of them on the Ebay selling platform, are very concerning. Often being sold for as little as £10, these laptop adapters at face value look like something of a bargain. That is until you start using them. They often will not possess the legal CE safety standards required for use and sale in the United Kingdom. They will usually feel very light, almost hollow, when compared to the original laptop adapter supplied with your laptop.

What is most concerning is that lots of these laptop power supply units will not have proper overheating and surge protection, meaning that the unit setting on fire is a real risk – something which many people have reported to us who have purchase their laptop charger off ebay.

Dont take any risks with either your laptop or your house. Come to Laptop Power UK can get a real piece of top quality electronic equipment. On a like for like basis our laptop power cables are the best value for money on the European market – but as the saying goes – to a certain extent you get what you pay for.
