Oh dear.. next will be "The exploding E-Bike battery pack".

Check out the 48V connector...

I thought "No, surely it's the power supply input plug" until I read on. "3-Hole" it says further down... "something-hole" I'm sure.

If there really is a battery pack out there with that IEC connector just begging for someone to plug it straight into the wall...   :scared:.

Not easy, not hard, just need to be incentivised.

Think that ad also violates Ebay misleading item description rules. It is a charger, yet the words E-BIKE and BATTERY are capitalized. No doubt as clickbait since batteries are typically more expensive than chargers.
