//You have to see this before buying cheap counterfeit electrical products – it’s explosive!

This video from You Tube, linked from the BS1363 website is an excellent example to show what happens when a UK plug fitted with a counterfeit BS1363 fuse is subject to a short circuit.

Because the counterfeit fuse has no filling to suppress the arc it just explodes, as there’s nothing else it can do, blowing the plug from its socket.

This video was not produced by us and is being shown only as an example to help share the dangers of using counterfeit electrical products.
