operated appliances when operated in the battery mode.

This standard covers appliances with a light emitting surface less than 25 cm2. Appliances with  a  light emitting  surface  equal  to  or  greater  than  25  cm2  are  within  the  scope of IEC 60335-2-27.

Appliances not intended for normal household use but which nevertheless may be a source of danger to the public such as appliances intended to be used in beauty salons and similar premises are also within the scope of this standard.
