Due to the incorrect material composition of the mode 2 charging cable for charging at a household power outlet, the insulation resistance of the rubber buffer may be affected, exceeding the protective function of the charging cable. Furthermore, in combination with an error in the home infrastructure, the activation of the protection device in the home electrical circuit could be prevented. This could cause the user to have an electric shock and could lead to a fire.
