Some sellers reported: Amazon US station car chargers, chargers, power adapters, household appliances, battery products need to provide safety certification (UL certification / safety test report)! Car chargers need UL2089 certification, household appliances / chargers need to provide UL62368 Certified!Mobile phone batteries need to provide /UL1642 certification!!Those that cannot be provided will be forcibly removed from the shelves within the specified time!That means Amazon will revoke your selling privileges!
What the hell is Amazon doing!?Since May last year, a large number of bulbs have been removed from the shelves!At the end of last year, the light string needs to provide UL588 certification!Amazon has never stopped!A large number of sellers complained, what is the reason for this?Why are car charger/charger/battery products removed from the shelves?
It is understood that if such products are unqualified, it is easy to cause fire and endanger people's lives and property safety. Similar cases have occurred before!The UL standard is also the safety testing standard in the Americas!And Amazon out of consideration for security!Strengthen the control of live electrical and electronic products, and many products have been removed from the shelves because of this!It also makes sense!
