This sentence summarizes the bullsh!t:

What is This Device?
It's called Voltex and its tech was originally created by no other than the legendary Serbian-American inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, and futurist, Nikola Tesla.”

I mean, poor Nikola Tesla. He died penniless yet scammers nowadays profit all the time with his name.

I saw something similar that Bigclive tore down with that green light plastic thing on the front.



Worst fake "power saver" plug yet


Also the pictures look fake:

Yet another capacitor box.



Why do they even bother putting capacitors in there when it's an obvious scam anyway?

I suspect its a stall.  Someone will take the unit apart and if it's empty there will be no doubt.  But a capacitor indeed can raise power factor so they have something to tout.

What they don't say is that the energy is what gets billed.  If the power factor is too low, the power company will complain to the user and, if not corrected, the rate goes up.  This, only for big users, not individual homes.

Love the accent of this “diode gone wild” guy.

And the smart ass comment that the cat makes.

This version seen on ebay is sold as a "Home Use Save Electricity Power Energy Saver Device (UK Plug)". I have no idea how this works as it plugs into the ring but the worrying part is the "useful load" of 28KW - or +110 amps. In Chinglish they state, "Products with resistance to convex wave, convex against current wave, protection of electrical appliances." At least the FCC and CE logos will provide assurance to anyone doing a PAT test on this thing. I think it's just a surge arrestor that saves electricity by blowing up the RCD. Frequently.

It's just a capacitor across the mains, with some other negligible components. If they were trying to be technically accurate, "useful load" would indicate the size of the capacitor and how much reactive load it will compensate for, but in reality they probably just made up a random number.
