Known Counterfeiters

Converter plugs require a mandatory approval by a NAMAS approved test house and must comply with BS1363-5 and comply with DTI Plug and Socket Safety Regulations which means they must be permanently fitted and only removable with a tool like a screwdriver.

The companies below are known to produce and/or supply counterfeit copies of PowerConnections converters. None of these companies are licensed by PowerConnections nor are they distributors of our products. Products produced by these companies are not approved to appropriate standards and in many cases are dangerous to consumers. In the last two years PowerConnections has taken successful action against more than a dozen UK and European companies for infringement of our Trade Mark. We have also assisted various Trading Standards authorities to take criminal proceedings against those using and selling counterfeit products. So if you buy from these people there is a high chance that you will be caught and prosecuted.
