And i have literally seen a power surge jumping switches and shorting a circuit board and as there is no earth wiring system here in the Phillipines and wiring is normally just 2 black cables best to unplug things !
And yes i agree that most of the china made stuff here is not very good !
Recently we discovered HMR Sucat , which sell stuff mostly from Australia and the US.
There are bargains to be had we bought a coffee grinder brewer all in one machine at halfprice
And a car dash cam and a usb keyboard, and they tested everything in front of us everything worked as it should
Fresh brewed ground coffee mmmmmm
If you have no earthing, grounding, system in your house, then I respectfully suggest that you never switch on any electrical appliances, and would advise you to have a grounding system installed ASAP.

If your wiring installation is to UK codes, I assume that you RCD's installed. As you know MCB's will not protect against electric shock hazard.
