The CE symbol is on the AC adapter but not on the charger unit.

Seems unlikely to me but I wouldn't know. I'm not in Europe.

Any Europeans here have anything like this happen to them?

Just looking at the 4 mods on my desk at the moment and two have CE marks, two don't. They all came from FT, and there was no issue with customs for any of them. Of the two that don't, one of the boxes they came has a CE mark, the other doesn't. Didn't occur to me that Customs would even bother to check. They don't even open the packages.

Out of curiosity, what country are you in OP?

From what I've read on the forums here and on another site, the CE mark on most items made in China stands for China Export, not European Conformity.

Btw, if you look at the back of the charger, some text on the bottom has been blocked out.

You might want to ask FT why.

Edited on 3/2/2017 at 2:15 PM. Reason:
I just need one more flashlight. Just one. Honestly. :D

I have this charger. The text on the bottom that FT blurred out is two Patent numbers. They must have thought they were serial numbers or something. No reason to blur it though.

Others in Austria don't ever mention problems like this. Go for it. It's a good charger.

I thought you were considering buying it still. If you need to prove the value of the item to Customs, your email receipt for it should be good.
