EU-Kommission: Jede dritte Lichterkette ist "brandgefährlich"...

EU Commission: Every third string of lights is "fire-hazardous"...

An investigation by the EU Commission and tests by Stiftung Warentest show that not all LED light chains are safe. The EU Commission found that almost one in three Christmas light chains fail the safety test.

Christmas light strings can pose various risks if they are not manufactured or handled properly. These risks range from electric shocks to fire hazards. Stiftung Warentest has also found safety defects in Christmas light strings in past years.

It is advisable to look for quality and safety standards when purchasing Christmas light strings. Here are some tips to protect yourself:

  1. Buy from trusted retailers and manufacturers: make sure the retailer is known and has positive reviews. is a good option as we only offer safe and tested LED light chains.

  2. Look for safety certificates: products marked with safety certificates such as CE, GS or TÜV have undergone strict safety tests.

  3. Avoid extremely cheap offers: Very low prices can be an indicator of poor quality and safety standards.

  4. Check product descriptions and ratings: Pay attention to the manufacturer's claims about the safety of the product and read customer reviews to get an idea of the quality and safety of the string of lights.

  5. Follow the instructions: read and follow the instructions carefully to ensure the string of lights is installed and used safely.

Following these guidelines can help minimize risks and ensure a safer and more festive holiday season.
