Click Nightguard Brand CLKRT200 Motion Torch Not charging

A great product, inductive coupled charged torch with nighttime motion detector.  Purchased from Bunnings 6 months ago for $20, stopped charging.  The base has a burnt smell coming from it.

Opened the base and found that the 224 / 400V polyester capacitor had ruptured and a resistor was burned beyond recognition.  Fuse was O.K.

It was very hard to  find a product website for the Click Brand.  A search on IP Australia disclosed that the trademark owner is Bunnings…

Alot of other are having similar issues with the CLKRT200 and CLKRT100.  Fuses blowing….  Poor design….
Lucky this did not catch on fire.

There is no real fix for this crap except to disable the inductive part altogether and power the thing of a external 5V AC or DC plugpack modded with a plugin connector.
