In NSW (Australia), I have read that Fair Trading inspectors seized a number of unapproved USB chargers (possibly including knockoffs) which plug into a mains outlet this year.

the problem is because all modern fones charge from usb, there is a huge market for usb psu's now.

there was a batch being supplied with raspberry-pi units a while back that may have been safe, but outputted 6v!!!!
