The cross-sectional area of the core of the wires is insufficient: in case of a short circuit the wires may overheat and cause a fire. Also, live parts can be touched when connecting the mains lead, since the dimensions of the plug are not suitable, and the protective cover for the LEDs can be removed by hand during charging leaving live parts accessible. In addition, the storage compartment has sharp edges which can damage the insulation of the mains lead.
