I think Okowatt(ökowatt) is just another scam. I am a professional electrician and worked in the field for many years, even had an electrical contractor's license. I spent my greatest number of years in the field working as an electrical technician and troubleshooter and I can tell you that everything in a building, be it a house or otherwise, requires so much power and you get billed for the amount of power you consume, not for capacity, current or anything else.

There is a power equation and you can manipulate any part of the equation but on the other side of that equation, you will have total power needed or consumed and that will not change, unless you want things not to work or wear out sooner than they were designed to.

I can get a 120V light bulb to work for at least a short while, but if the voltage is too much, the thing will burn out. I can play around with the current but things will either not work or stop working soon.

There is really only one way for anyone to save on electricity and that is not to use it, period. If anyone really wants to save on electricity, then use only one or just a few solar panels to create your own electricity. Solar panel systems can be custom-designed to serve the needs of just one or a few circuits but one does not need to spend $20,000 for an entire house system. A product like Okowatt(ökowatt) that cost only $40.00 is not going to get you anywhere.

Have had four months and see no reduction in power costs. The unit is within six feet of the power box. Cannot find a number to contact them. In my opinion, this is a rip-off. Would have been willing to try a replacement.

This device is theoretically possible. I am a chemical engineer. There is something called Power factor which is a measure of how much the alternating voltage leads or lags the generated voltage. Basically regular resistance light bulbs have no effect on power factor but motors have inductive load where they store unused power for a few factions of a second and then send it back lowering the power factor. You pay for the current even if you don't use all the power. This is combated by adding a capacitor which shifts the load the opposite way. Your air conditioner probably already has a capacitor (about the size of a coke can) but other inductive loads in your house (transformers, small motors, etc) probably do not. The power company may add capacitors on their lines (look exactly like transformers), but it is not in their interest to do so unless they can't provide the required peak load.

OK so much for background. Obviously an OkoWatt unit doesn't contain a large capacitor, it is just too small. However it is possible to mimic capacitance with a large power transistor. Add a sensing, control and driving circuit and presto the claims are possible.

I have no idea if OKoWatt is doing this as they give no engineering specs.

So glad I checked this out first. There are so many idiots, cheaters, low

Iives out to take advantage . Do not, I repeat Do not order anything before checking out reviews.

Only a guess but makeup, Dr Oz endorsed products, Pro Drones, scams every one of them and many others.

Order only thru reputable company’s that you are familiar with, if in doubt don’t order. Another big scam is covid-19

Face masks, know the company you are ordering from, you stand to lose your money and with your credit info

It can be used for ordering. BE AWARE.

Keep in mind . . .you get exactly what you pay for. In my 93rd year there is no such thing as a 'free lunch'. If you got 50 or more bucks to spend, take your bride out your bride and have a great dinner. Jerry (A hands-on VET (WWII thru Vietnam)

I am an electrician and can say with out a doubt this is a scam. You pay for the electricity you use not what comes in to the panel.

Online Threat Alerts Security Tips

Pay the safest way

Credit cards are the safest way to pay for online purchases because you can dispute the charges if you never get the goods or services or if the offer was misrepresented. Federal law limits your liability to $50 if someone makes unauthorized charges to your account, and most credit card issuers will remove them completely if you report the problem promptly.

Guard your personal information

In any transaction you conduct, make sure to check with your state or local consumer protection agency and the Better Business Bureau (BBB) to see if the seller, charity, company, or organization is credible. Be especially wary if the entity is unfamiliar to you. Always call the number found on a website’s contact information to make sure the number legitimately belongs to the entity you are dealing with.

Be careful of the information you share

Never give out your codes, passwords or personal information, unless you are sure of who you're dealing with

Know who you’re dealing with

Crooks pretending to be from companies you do business with may call or send an email, claiming they need to verify your personal information. Don’t provide your credit card or bank account number unless you are actually paying for something and know who you are sending payment to. Your social security number should not be necessary unless you are applying for credit. Be especially suspicious if someone claiming to be from a company with whom you have an account asks for information that the business already has.

Check your accounts

Regularly check your account transactions and report any suspicious or unauthorised transactions.

Don’t believe promises of easy money

If someone claims that you can earn money with little or no work, get a loan or credit card even if you have bad credit, or make money on an investment with little or no risk, it’s probably a scam. Oftentimes, offers that seem too good to be true, actually are too good to be true.

Do not open email from people you don’t know

If you are unsure whether an email you received is legitimate, try contacting the sender directly via other means. Do not click on any links in an email unless you are sure it is safe.

Think before you click

If an email or text message looks suspicious, don’t open any attachments or click on the links.

Verify urgent requests or unsolicited emails, messages or phone calls before you respond

If you receive a message or a phone call asking for immediate action and don't know the sender, it could be a phishing message.

Be careful with links and new website addresses

Malicious website addresses may appear almost identical to legitimate sites. Scammers often use a slight variation in spelling or logo to lure you. Malicious links can also come from friends whose email has unknowingly been compromised, so be careful.

Secure your personal information

Before providing any personal information, such as your date of birth, Social Security number, account numbers, and passwords, be sure the website is secure.

Stay informed on the latest cyber threats

Keep yourself up to date on current scams by visiting this website daily.

Use Strong Passwords

Strong passwords are critical to online security.

Keep your software up to date and maintain preventative software programs

Keep all of your software applications up to date on your computers and mobile devices. Install software that provides antivirus, firewall, and email filter services.

Update the operating systems on your electronic devices

Make sure your operating systems (OSs) and applications are up to date on all of your electronic devices. Older and unpatched versions of OSs and software are the target of many hacks. Read the CISA security tip on Understanding Patches and Software Updates for more information.

What if You Got Scammed?

Stop Contact With The Scammer

Hang up the phone. Do not reply to emails, messages, or letters that the scammer sends. Do not make any more payments to the scammer. Beware of additional scammers who may contact you claiming they can help you get your lost money back.

Secure Your Finances

  • Report potentially compromised bank account, credit or debit card information to your financial institution(s) immediately. They may be able to cancel or reverse fraudulent transactions.
  • Notify the three major credit bureaus. They can add a fraud alert to warn potential credit grantors that you may be a victim of identity theft. You may also want to consider placing a free security freeze on your credit report. Doing so prevents lenders and others from accessing your credit report entirely, which will prevent them from extending credit:

Check Your Computer

If your computer was accessed or otherwise affected by a scam, check to make sure that your anti-virus is up-to-date and running and that your system is free of malware and keylogging software. You may also need to seek the help of a computer repair company. Consider utilizing the Better Business Bureau’s website to find a reputable company.

Change Your Account Passwords

Update your bank, credit card, social media, and email account passwords to try to limit further unauthorized access. Make sure to choose strong passwords when changing account passwords.

Report The Scam

Reporting helps protect others. While agencies can’t always track down perpetrators of crimes against scammers, they can utilize the information gathered to record patterns of abuse which may lead to action being taken against a company or industry.

Report your issue to the following agencies based on the nature of the scam:

  • Local Law Enforcement: Consumers are encouraged to report scams to their local police department or sheriff’s office, especially if you lost money or property or had your identity compromised.
  • Federal Trade Commission: Contact the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) at 1-877-FTC-HELP (1-877-382-4357) or use the Online Complaint Assistant to report various types of fraud, including counterfeit checks, lottery or sweepstakes scams, and more.
  • If someone is using your personal information, like your Social Security, credit card, or bank account number, to open new accounts, make purchases, or get a tax refund, report it at This federal government site will also help you create your Identity Theft Report and a personal recovery plan based on your situation. Questions can be directed to 877-ID THEFT.

How To Recognize a Phishing Scam

Scammers use email or text messages to try to steal your passwords, account numbers, or Social Security numbers. If they get that information, they could get access to your email, bank, or other accounts. Or they could sell your information to other scammers. Scammers launch thousands of phishing attacks like these every day — and they’re often successful.

Scammers often update their tactics to keep up with the latest news or trends, but here are some common tactics used in phishing emails or text messages:

Phishing emails and text messages often tell a story to trick you into clicking on a link or opening an attachment. You might get an unexpected email or text message that looks like it’s from a company you know or trust, like a bank or a credit card or utility company. Or maybe it’s from an online payment website or app. The message could be from a scammer, who might

  • say they’ve noticed some suspicious activity or log-in attempts — they haven’t
  • claim there’s a problem with your account or your payment information — there isn’t
  • say you need to confirm some personal or financial information — you don’t
  • include an invoice you don’t recognize — it’s fake
  • want you to click on a link to make a payment — but the link has malware
  • say you’re eligible to register for a government refund — it’s a scam
  • offer a coupon for free stuff — it’s not real
