Mal, I just spent a month in Brazil and used one of these pretty much daily.

Apparently (according to my Brazillian friends) there was a very popular hashtag kicking around during the olympics #noshowerrio (or something like that!) because people were too afraid to use the dodgy wiring. Trust me, no one wants to smell a drunk tourist who has been sweltering in the Rio sun for days without showering!
I've backpacked throughout S.America for 8 moths or so and this was a common sight basically everywhere I stayed. I seriously did not think or suspect it had any wires!!!
I guess it wasn't my time yet....
