Don't get caught out on the NEW British Standards for Travel Adapters

British Standards Kitemark The single most important factor when selecting products for promotional use by clients is ensuring that they are safe and comply with all relevant standards – you need to be sure they can be supplied without fear of issues in the future, or a client demanding to return products.

It is vitally important that everyone who supplies promotional merchandise is aware of the new British Standard that covers travel adapters – BS8546.

BS8546 British Standards

IEC-60884-2-5   TUV SUD

To summarise, this standard requires that all travel adapters to have a fuse of at least 5A (but not more than 13A) and be unable to accept a 3 pin (earthed) plug unless the adapter itself has an earth connection.

The SKROSS® PRO range has long been the industries leading 3 pin travel adapter and is therefore fully compliant with BS8546.
