EMSD urges consumers to stop use of Garwall GW7884 adaptor (with photos)

The Electrical and Mechanical Services Department (EMSD) today (May 9) advised consumers to stop using a Garwall adaptor (model number: GW7884) for safety reasons.

The adaptor has not been certified to the internationally recognised BS1363 safety standard and has also failed to comply with the essential safety requirements of the Electrical Products (Safety) Regulation, posing possible safety hazards during use.

An EMSD spokesman said, "As advised by the manufacturer, there is no local agent appointed to import the Garwall adaptor into Hong Kong. Consumers should not purchase this model of adaptor if they find it in the market. They should call the EMSD (Tel: 2333 3762) immediately for follow-up action."
