About faulty chargers

Mobile phone and electronic device chargers are expected to meet the British Standard 1363 or BS1363 to ensure they are safe and conform to the average British voltage. This safety requirement applies to the most common types of domestic AC power plugs and sockets used in the UK.

As the electric main will often deliver more power than an appliance, such as a phone charger, can handle, plugs must be fitted with a fuse cartridge to prevent overheating wires and the possibility of fire.

Plugs that do not have a fuse or have a fuse with an incorrect rating may be liable to trigger an electric shock. The impact of an electric shock can vary; while some may just be mild and deliver a short and mildly painful shock, others can lead to more serious injuries, such as burns or heart problems.

If you have bought a phone or electronic device charger and have suffered an electrical shock due to poor wiring or because the product came with a faulty plug, you can make a claim for compensation.

Who is responsible?

Manufacturers and retailers both have a legal responsibility to ensure that products made and sold are of a certain standard and are not likely to be harmful to the general public. Faulty products end up being sold due to negligent checks during the manufacturing process or a lack of vigilance from retailers. If you have sustained an injury due to a faulty charger, you should contact our expert solicitors to make a claim for compensation.
