Power Saver box review. Want to drop your electric bill?
Here is a product review of a unit that is supposed to be a big power saver.
Its marketed as being very intelligent and learns and improves your appliances performance while making them more efficient.
I think you will enjoy my findings and if you have any ideas please share them.
Im not a professional power tester so please give me some ideas on how to better test these power savers. ;o) Also if you have a product you would like me to review please contact me.
All the best,

    Je ne vais rentrer dans le détail de la conception de cet appareil, mais je doute fort qu’il soit réellement efficace. Les grosses entreprises utilisent effectivement ce type d’appareil, pour contrôler le Cosinus Phi de leur installation, c’est un système très astucieux qui mesure le Cosinus Phi, et à l’aide de capacité le ramène au plus près de 1. Plus le Cosinus Phi se rapproche de zéro, plus le rendement est mauvais.

    Je vais essayer de faire simple.
    En France les anciens compteurs électrique calculaient la Puissance en kW (kW puissance active) avant mars 2010. Ensuite, avec l’arrivé des compteurs Linky, le calcule est différent, maintenant les calculs sont en kVA, cela change beaucoup de choses.

    Vous avez certainement entendu parler du fameux Cosinus Phi ou Facteur de Puissance. C’est l’élément clé du changement dans le calcul. Cette valeur est très importante pour une installation, du moins, pour les appareils qui y sont connectés. Il y a les appareils qui utilisent une puissance active ou réactive. Avec les anciens compteurs des particuliers, seul la puissance active était calculé, c'est-à-dire des kW, et le facteur de puissance (Cos Phi) était ignoré ou non calculable, car les particulier utilisent principalement des appareils a consommation active.
    Par contre pour les entreprises utilisant certain matériel consommateur de beaucoup d’énergie réactive, leurs compteurs prennent en compte le calcul du facteur de puissance.

    Un exemple simple :
    Puissance active : radiateur électrique, fer à repasser, four électrique, machine à café.
    Puissance réactive : tous les appareils avec un moteur, machine à laver, perceuse, mais aussi les ampoules leds, chargeurs de téléphone ou portable.

    Pour mieux comprendre, je vous renvoie sur le site pour comprendre comment cela est calculé, et pourquoi maintenant les factures risques d’être supérieur alors que l’installation est identique et que vous n’avez rien changé dans vos habitude. Vous ne comprendrez pas aussi pourquoi votre compteur disjoncte

    Je conclurais en disant, que oui, maintenant un appareil pouvant contrôler le facteur de puissance, peut-être utile, mais pas pour tout le monde, car tout dépend du matériel utilisé. Avant d’acheter quoique ce soit, c’est déjà de calculer sont facteur de puissance. Mais dans tous les cas sachez qu’un appareil de ce type coute très cher.
    Pour les personnes qui bricoles beaucoup utilisant des appareils avec des moteurs ou autres utilisateurs de puissance réactive, pour le savoir faire des recherches sur internet, il y a une solution.
    La solution est toute simple et ne coute pratiquement rien, par contre, il y a un calcul à faire pour le calcul, cela dit il existe des sites ou un programme fait le calcul à votre place.
    Ce qu’il vous faut :
    Un appareil qui vous donne le Cosinus Phi, c’est un appareil qui vous donne le nombre de kW consommé, l’ampérage, la puissance.
    Vous branché cet appareil dans la prise vous connectez la perceuse par exemple sur l’appareil, quand la perceuse sera en marche, vous aurez le facteur de puissance. Par rapport à cette valeur vous pourrez calculer le condensateur à mettre en parallèle sur la prise pour cette perceuse qui remontera le facteur de puissance au plus près de 1. Car pour chaque appareil la valeur ne sera pas toujours pareil.
    Faires des recherches sur internet, pour plus de détail.

    What has been the result of the power saver you connected to your meter box?  I see that the company makes power savers for individual appliances and whole house.  Are these a good investment to save money on electricity?

    this is most likely a copy of the magrav technology. it is not a magic box like you think it is. it is not plug and wow look free energy. the science of plasma technology is really different if this is what it is. . it take ac but at the same time it give's back dc to the grid. your metter will not show that. second plasma works like this, it will adapt to the light and nanoo coat the wire of the lamp(that could take one month) but once that is done the nano layer is part also of the device. nano sucks all 99.9 energy in the wire back to the device. that is also nano inside plus a gans. gans is a super conducter(new far out science) anyway.plasma will adapt to the light and make it work on plasma costing much less in energy bills. read the pakage, it will explain how to use it. if that product even works…???? it is not a keshe foundation product,i will confirm to that. maybe a cheap rip off.

    Its just a capacitor bank… may reduce your trip and help other appliance for voltage drop due to motor startup

    People keep saying this is a scam but I tried it and for the past 4 months, I have been paying only MYR100 or less for electricity when I usually paid MYR250++ before and I have maintained my electric usage (more or less) as before I bought this thing. I know it sounds scientifically illogical, but I am happy that it reduces my bills by more than 50%. So I am willing to be ignorant about science for this one.

    People in the comments are telling him to try it with a motor. Doesn't matter, you are not saving any power, it is impossible to get the same work done for less power (watts). Sure with inductive loads you'll see the amps lower with a "power saver" since its just a capacitor adding capacitive reactance to correct the inductive reactance. These are things you do NOT pay for in residential. Remember people, with inductive loads you can't just "amps x volts = watts" so you see the amps drop on your motor and think you are using less "watts", noooo watts is the same, you just cut out some of the reactive power and are wasting your time and money. 

    Its sad to see people who SWEAR after they got a power saver, their bill is 30% lower etc etc… sorry, it is impossible.

    It is supposed to save power on motor driven appliances but you used resistance appliances to test it.  Although it is interesting to see that it used more power with light bulbs, why not show a fan or a vacuum?

    Anyone who says these devices save you money on your electric bill are sadly mistaken. Look for another reason for your electric bill savings. I've been an electrical engineer for 32+ years and keep seeing these scam devices. This device alters the inductive load in your house (motors), but residential customers are not charged for inductive load – only resistive load (watts – hence watthour meter). It will never save you any money when it's plugged in, but wont cost you any money if it's plugged in either…but it will cost you if you buy it.

    are you willing to try it with a inductive load like: an AC motor, Fan (the one that not use capacitor inside), washing machines, AC air conditioner, Fridges?

    Hope you can do another video with this type of loads.

    reading all this comments I must to say the following.  Energy saving devices are not new… Many industries use capacitors bank to improve power factor close to 1 and hence reduce electrical bill.  This device is the same.. but in smaller scale…  Inductive load shift phase of the current and voltage.  Also many electronics equipment introduce discontinuities in the voltage signal (like rectifiers) introducing annoying harmonics signal.  All this alteration from pure, beautiful sine wave cost you money.  These devices correct all this alterations…

    this is depend where in the world you are living ,, in asia this is working becuse the powerfaktor is low, in sweden where I live the power factor is very strong so it will cost me money to use this same as yours, and its capasitors inside this YES

    I have those same power saver. and tested it. It works on my washing machine and dryers.Machines that involve Inductive loads.But for resistve loads like you did it wont show any savings.Try Inductve loads like pumps, washing machine dryers and you will see the magic.

    Well it would help correct a Power Factor mismatch in an Induction Motor, what you are using are resistance loads, most of the energy in a hair dryer is the resistance in the heating element, and usually a universal brush type motor.

    power factor correction would not be applicable in these types of loads.

    Power factor correction is a very specific calculation for a known load.
    houses are not billed for it and meters don't recognize it.

    It does help when generating your own power.

    I appreciated you taking the time to test it. But I've seen a video that shows different results, and I'm trying to understand what's what. Any reply would be appreciated.

    Look for this video: Comprobacion funcionamiento Ahorrador de energia electrica

    you have to test it with inductive motors like fans AC Fridges with your volt meter check out the changes on VOLTS AMPERAGE and POWER FACTOR it will reduce it. I have tested those Chinese products and works. It will not work with electronics, resistances, microwaves, computers, lights because they use more efficiently the electricity and there is no waste of electricity to recycle in the system. Hope this solves your questions.

    you ended up with my mental torture guy you were the one who decided to open this unit and show what you have in there a capacitor and four resistors that Aki bought a site to see what's inside aki in Brazil and it was expensive but you the one that showed the configuration of the capacitor and removed my doubts did a study electronic distance

    Electric meters measure consumption in watts, not amps.
    These devices do not reduce the watts consumed at all.
    watts = amps x volts x power factor

    Resistive loads have a power factor of 1, but things like motors have a lower power factor.
    These devices will lower the amperage reading you get from a motor, but they raise the power factor in proportion, so the watts are the same.

    Your electric meter only measures watts, so these devices will save you nothing.

    Good job! You have shown the fallacy of these devices. They don't work. All they are is a box with capacitors. Don't be fooled. With alternating current, current doesn't mean power like with DC. These devices can reduce current for an electric motor type load but that doesn't reduce power – not the same thing/no increase in efficiency. The power company charges you for power, not current. Don't buy. It's a scam.

    i m a electrical engineer from india, please see the location of measuring current, it's very important..the magnetizing current keeps oscillating from inductive load to source, this device acts as a source for magnetizing kVAR…so connect ur ammeter before this device…..this device switches capacitor to compensate reactive kVAR's…..it will definatly save electricity upto 15% ( only when inductive loads like, motors or transformers are running)….:-)

    @fixtable I am studying electrical engineer..so if you sychronise the phases what do you save??the power that is lost on cables??don't think it's so much power..
