Don't even get me started about the  safety and fire issues related to their PSU

Ouch, you had it worse than me. At least my product works -- even though they mined all the good mine out of it the 6 months prior to me receiving it.

I am curious though, which PSU do you have and what were your concerns? The one I received looks like this: http://i.imgur.com/lSwkhSb.jpg (link instead because the image is HUGE)

Evidence to support BFL mined with your hardware because that is theft is it not?

Yep THAT is THE Piece of SHIT……

As for my concerns, I am not about to help out BFL after they fucked me over…… only to say that I spent over 20 years sourcing/manufacturing electronics,
and ensuring they comply with safety regulations (normally only the ones related to death of a family member)
Basically regulations fall into two main areas

1. Smacked corporate bottom … don't do it again…
2. Prison time,mega serious fines for negligence, endangering the public, Customs bans for safety/fire hazards.

The BFL product falls into the second category for a number of reasons.

1. Access to live parts without the use of tools
2. Creepage and clearance distances between live parts.
3. Low Voltage Directive (LVD) 2006/95/EC*

Also under BSEN & Australia,Hong Kong, Singapore, Norway  safety standards.

Just don't place the unit on/near any conductive/ flammable surfaces whilst it is operational, that way the worse it will do is cover the area with a dense black toxic soot & smoke should it fail…

* A freebie for BFL….
The limit for TOTAL CONTENT of  re-grind plastics on a plastic product should be significantly less than 30%.. on a non-contamination mix basis.

BFL always charges between 200% to 1000% percent markup on shipping.

For the U.S. a box that costs them $12.85 to ship, they charge $34
