I needed a replacement ac adaptor for my Dell Dimension D830. I checked Dell's site and bought the genuine product for around £48. I then scoured the web for alternative offers and found KingBattery advertising themselves as an authorised Dell partner, displaying the ac adaptor in authentic Dell packaging and selling for £21.50. I bought this also with a view to contacting Trading Standards. This I did and was informed because KingBattery is based offshore and the goods are shipped from abroad they have no powers to prevent counterfeit goods entering the UK. Take note these goods are dangerous and liable to overheat in a very short space of time, the outer case starts to melt filling the room with acrid smoke and is clearly a potentially lethal fire hazard. Surely to goodness there must be a way to prevent this activity?
