If - against all advice - you carry on using the device, it catches fire, causes a major incident (e.g. burns down a tower block or incinerates a train coach) and people die, where do you think your chances stand with the law? You'll be going down for a few years for manslaughter at least
Its unsafe. You've been told its unsafe and you've been told not to use it. If you ignore that advice you're an idiot and deserve to have your ass reamed in jail
