Ebay listing sold by a uk seller  https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/138-LED-Twinkle-Star-Curtain-Window-Fairy-Lights-Christmas-Party-Wedding-Plug-in/383771301438?hash=item595a8d563e:g:ZO8AAOSw2S1fjVZe

 

Well they look ace (put back in box after a quick inspection) marked double insulated  and IP44  and they are not. lights run at mains voltage (probably a capacitor dropper) and the plug top seen similar but never this small pins are undersized too. its marked 10A . Definitely going back. (not tried the magnet test to see if the wire is magnetic had seen enough)

I have tried all sorts of Chinesium in the past got some rubbish and some bargains.

That needs reporting to trading standards.... I’m sure that it will be illegal for sale in the UK purely on the non-compliant plug top
