Travel adapter plug is recalled due to serious risks

Intelligent Pelican

INTELLIGENT Pelican has learned that a certain model (J-188) of their travel adapter plug manufactured in China and distributed in the UK under the brand Intelligent Pelican has failed a screening test and has been deemed a serious risk.


By pressing hard and sliding the UK or USA pins can result in the European pins springing out at the same time, which would render the European pins live if pushed into functioning mode.
These travel adapter plugs were sold from the September 2014 to 21st August 2015.
WARNING: At no time must you use this travel adapter when two sets of pins are engaged in their functioning positions.
Intelligent Pelican will voluntarily recall and reimburse any of these travel adapters. We also offer the option to replace the faulty adapter with a new model which has been tested and passed as safe.
Intelligent Pelican Ltd deeply apologizes for the inconvenience it has caused its customers and asks for your cooperation in the recall of the Intelligent Pelican Travel adapter.
