All of the descriptions (English, French and German) have grammatical or
spelling mistakes in them (or both) - although that's only indicative
and not conclusive.
The killer is the CE Marking - it's too small (minimum allowed height
for the letters is 5mm) and the typeface is wrong. There's also
absolutely no indication of who manufactured it, and since CE Marking is
a manufacturer's certification, it's kind of useless without it.
Needless to say, I never even tried it to see if it worked. I sent it
back to the supplier with some stern comments, and demanded a proper one.
