Recall: Kawashima Pro2000i inverter generator

The problem

The 12 volt battery charger outlet does not meet New Zealand standards and could be mistaken for a 240 volt outlet. The battery charger lead supplied with the unit has a plug that could be mistaken for a 240 volt plug and inserted into a 240 volt outlet.

Plugging the lead into a 240 volt outlet makes the alligator clips live and creates a serious electrical safety hazard.
