All the more reason that you should make sure it has all the required compliance testing.

I was investigated by Trading Standards following a complaint by a rather paranoid and silly customer. They purchased some power supplies and some other stuff and not only gave my products a good checking out, but also the quality of my support.

I was allowed to continue selling my power supplies, which have gone on to be a very good source of income.

I didn't ask for your resume or qualifications. As i said, i believe no one has produced one because it requires certification I'm guessing CE compliance in the EU. (In Australia it requires an a-tick). Im assuming the cost of the compliance testing makes it not viable for small quantities.
