If the house had an RCCB he would still be alive. 

Made in China?

It's time the world starts boycotting illegal chinese products...they are very dangerous and can also put whole houses/condo's on fire.

Phone chargers from China are illegal ?

Comments include that a RCB would have saved this mans life, Thailand is a long way from RCCB there is no urgency to have earth wires fitted.

Yes, but what is your point? 

I feel safe enough, I don't take my phone to bed nor hold it while charging. 

I wonder what magical force you possess to insert the charging cable? Or do you solely use wireless chargers?

Here's a trick, plug the phone end in first, and then the mains end. In reality I have an original charger, and I actually bought a new cable that is far better made.

This also happens in other countries...

 

But maybe the charger you used wasn't strong enough to charge a tablet? These days people expect anything to work with eachother if the connectors fit....but that's not how it works! Chargers are built to supply a certain amount of milliamps...a phone which is charged with too many milliamps will get damage to the battery, it will get hot and might explode. It also damages the lifetime of the battery.

 

And then there are the copy chinese chargers which are not certified or even properly checked. I wonder how they work when the power of 220V input isn't steady as is the case in Thailand. Or what happens when the power drops or during lightning.

 

If you live in a condo it would be nice if the neighbours also don't use cheap dangerous chargers or phones or electric ovens and so on......or those hooverboards from china.

I suppose many other countries do a better job of protecting their consumers. But have read of incidents in UK, India, Vietnam, and yes China.

Buy cheap, you get cheap.

I was working with a chap from China earlier this year and, in my diplomatic way, asked him why goods from China are such <deleted>. He was surprised and said the goods back home were of a high standard, but guessed they exported any cheap nasty stuff to countries such as Thailand as people there want to buy the cheapest possible. Sounded right to me.

It's the other way around. QC on exported goods is much more stringent than for domestic markets. Nothing much to be done about online or private sales though, particularly in a massive market like phones/accessories.

Perhaps his "magic" is to plug the phone in before switching on the power to the charger?
