Is Voltbox a Scam? Review of the Energy Saving Device - Volt Box

I think Voltbox is just another scam. I am a professional electrician and have 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 Powerbolt is not going to get you anywhere.

    There is no such item which can legally be connected to your supply which will reduce you energy bill. The meter in your house registers what energy you use. If you switch something off or dim a light you use les energy

    Yes, I think its a scam. I been waiting for my order for 2months and it did not reach me. I wonder how people can able to rob others despite the crisis we have been suffering just for a small amount of money

    Yep, I agree, It´s nothing else than a filter.

    On the net there is always some interference as can be seen on the scope video.

    This device is just an ordinary filter to take out unwanted spikes.

    The other thing is that it uses actually extra energy to smooth the spikes.

    See it as a filter in an amplifier or radio to smooth the noise going to the speakers.

    But also it is just plugged in on the primary side and maybe you do not even have these spikes.

    So, let´s measure the house/building before by an electrician and let him decide.

    That´s it nothing else, big scam again.

      The only way you can reduce your power bill is to install powerfactor correction system designed for your use.

    I brought two VOLTBOX Units and installed them as directed This was in January 2921

    The result . saved nothing Power bill over the past six months about the same

    Very disappointing that so called government regulators do nothing to stop these scams

      Why on earth should you think the government can do anything about fraudsters? The police cannot stop people giving away their own money.The government cannot mind your own business.

    I was a licensed Electrical F****r and Mechanic.For about 4 years I worked as a Control Room Operator in a Power Station. There,we had Power Factor meters and MVRA meters (Megavolt Amps Reactance meters) The Mvra meters measured apparent power (volts x amps for single phase power).Real power for single phase is volts x amps x power factor. The power factor is normally less than 1 for reactive loads eg

    .7 or. 8 so that the real power measured by a Kilowatt meter is les than the apparent power.A scammer can probably demonstrate how his device,when plugged in,can reduce the amperage used by a load. Or, if he has a volt amps reactance meter, how the apparent power can be reduced with his device plugged in. For normal households the kwh meter measures only real power not apparent power so you are not paying for apparent power. The extra amperage with apparent power is called 'wattless amps'and is not measured with a Kwh meter. In my opinion the device is a scam unless you are charged for apparent power measured by a kvar meter.
