It has failed after just 6 weeks of use. anyone else had problems with one of these?
(Credit to Maplin, they offered me a replacement or alternative with no hassle).

I think that most of this type of item,will have a certain amount and possibly very limited failure rate due to mass production methods.The one you had, was one of the unfortunate ones. If there was a big failure rate, then I am sure Maplin's would have a recall procedure in progress.

I see they are now advertising it as "Whilst stocks last", which might signify something.

Not necessarily. Maplin,s have "Whilst stocks last" on many items. Usually waiting for new stock or new replacements.
