StopWatt, Esaver, VoltCore: Scams or Miracle Solutions?

👉 Key Takeaways…

  • Numerous “energy-saving” devices promise electricity bill reductions of up to 90%.
  • They tend to appear more frequently during times of rising electricity costs, with ads and promotional articles flooding the Internet.
  • Technically, these devices fall short of their promises and are clearly scams. In fact, they can even increase your electricity consumption 😅

A Successful Marketing Approach

Consumer complaints about so-called miracle energy-saving devices are nothing new. Testimonials have been pouring in for years. The pattern is generally always the same:

Advertisements for energy-saving devices have infiltrated numerous popular ad networks. As a result, you can find them on news sites or social media. Some people even report receiving phone calls promoting these devices.
