The aging or damage of the charger and the disorderly connection of the charging line are safety hazards that may cause fires. It is necessary to prevent electric bicycles from entering buildings and houses.
  2. Prevention of children’s toys inadvertent and accidental consumer tips: When purchasing products, pay attention to the age range of the product, especially for younger children where you may need to avoid buying small-sized toys.

  3. Prevention of baby carriage related collisions and falls consumption tips: When purchasing a baby carriage product, the visual inspection should be strengthened to eliminate the presence of voids on the car body that may cause cuts or scratches on the edges, corners, and children’s fingers.
