Got something from Expansys a week ago. Guess what was included ...

I thought this was against NZ Regulations. I know they are not a NZ Company but they are targeting NZ (due to their web address)
Even if it was legal to do, the adapter doesn't have a Earth Pin!

1eStar: It's just a first world problem. Usually with the gear I parallel import they seem to throw in a junky noncompliant two pin adapter. If I buy from a local parallel importer, they seem to supply a quality three pin adapter with flap in earth socket, masked pins etc.


No, its a third world problem being sent over here. If someone was to give the phone to a kid with the adapter with a kids usual incompetance with where they stick things its quite likly they will get the pins in the wrong place and have 230v sitting on a pin that they can touch, or get their fingers between the adapter and the charger and touch the US pins with no shrouding, or get it between the adapter and the wall socket where they have non sleeved pins.

The thing is they dont even meet chinese standards, which is why they are all sold over there with for export only on them.
