FAULTY: King Power Surge Protectors
0Overall Score

Kingcable Australia Pty Ltd has been ordered to recall an undisclosed number of King Power Surge Protector Power Boards because they do not comply with Australian Standards.The power boards, which were sold between January and July this year at specialist computer resellers, have six socket outlets and two telephone sockets with surge and over-current protection, and are fitted with insulated active and neutral plug pins – a combination which goes against local rules.

According to a spokesperson at Kingcable Australia Pty Ltd, all stockists have been informed of the recall by mail and must display the notice in their stores.


Customers who purchased one of the potentially-affected power boards between these times should stop using the product immediately and return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.

For further enquiries, contact the company on (03) 9558 3800.
