Join Dave as he laughs at the shonkiest product of 2016
The Z-Energeia energy saving wipes. Just wipe them on your mains fuse box and save up to 20% on your energy bill thanks to the Electron Vibration Alignment Field!

Heh, with winter coming, I should get some and wipe over all the electric heaters so they don't 'waste' energy as heat. I'm sure my housemates would thank me for helping out :)

Wow, I'd have thought this was an April Fool's joke.

When I first saw the advertising video, I couldn't breathe for about half a minute - I was laughing that hard.

To call this product Bullshit is being far too kind.  Even George Carlin's words - as brilliant as they were - lacked the intensity this 'product' deserves.


As for the Battery Maximizer - I'm wondering if Batteroo might be interested in a partnership.....

Vibration Alignment Field! It is magic!  :-DD

My English can be pretty bad, so suggestions are welcome. ;)

Whenever an otherwise functional person tries to explain how they believe in this kind of crap it forces me to remember that we are all just big chimpanzees. 

Just keep in mind that magic power meter wipes are no different than feng shui, or magic underwear, or zombie jesus crackers.  And we all know someone that not only believes in that crap but will aggressively defend that belief.

I heard on the internet if it is posted on the internet it has to be true. They cannot post anything on the internet that is not true.

Since this stuff can alter the resistance of conductors in an entire house by simply being smeared somewhere in the vicinity, imagine if you brought this stuff into a calibration lab. The calibration on everything  in the building would be ruined.

Cue the 'We're being attacked by 'Big Calibration' and 'Big Power' because out product will cause them to lose money!" claims.

For anyone wondering about this - the calibration labs and power companies will be laughing just as hard as we are.

Will the EVA field affect radio transmissions?  Will it turn a simple 5/8 antenna into a beam?

 I have a magnet you can apply to your car's fuel lines to align the gasoline molecules for optimal efficiency. It increased my MPG by 25% and my performance by 800%. I'm still looking for one of those tornado airflow things, if I stick one of those in there and then use this product on the electrical system, as I drive, my gas tank will fill up, that's how awesomely efficient my car will become!

Maybe even get an SWR of 0.9:1!!!

yeah, just wipe the 50ohm cables and bang! no reflections and other issues, and imagine what it could do with scopes!

I save money on my electric bill by pouring a mixture of liquid hydrogen, salt, and metal filings into the circuit breaker.
Doing this scares the electrons into behaving properly, and thus fewer electrons are wasted.

This process also provides a number of other benefits. The liquid hydrogen helps to transport the metal filings deep into the circuit breaker, and as it evaporates, the hydrogen forms a protective barrier which prevents the internal components from corroding, this provides a safe working environment for the electrons.

Remember, a safe electron, is a happy electron, and a happy electron will work harder for you, thus you will not need as many to run your appliances. Furthermore, the coating of metal filings will provide the electrons with more space to work (think of it like a company expanding an office, and giving everyone larger cubicles, and more comfy chairs).

What will they come up with next?

Oh wait...

 :-//  I don't get it.
I think someone was having a slow day at the office. 17:00 of video, for this shooting fish in a barrel?

I like debunking vids as much as the next guy, but can't you pick something that's actually worth investigating?

I suspect the rag is just infused with Ionized Microcluster Alkaline Water (and no, I'm not making that up either)

You should try liquid oxygen. Combined with those metal fillings, the electrons will be absolutely terrified. (As will anyone else within minimum safe distance).

I hear Triton is selling it cheap now.
