Are you thinking of ways to reduce your electricity bill? Do you want to buy MiracleWatt energy saver this March 2022? Read this review to find out everything you need to know about Miracle Watt Energy Saver.
MiracleWatt Power Saver- Is It Worth It?
One of the reasons why this device is the rave of the internet is because it allegedly reduces 90% of your electricity bill. Furthermore, the MiracleWatt Energy saver is been sold for 50% discount. You also get to pay lower when you buy more.
However, when you dig beneath all the so called positive reviews online, you’d see that there are no genuine customer reviews of this product. The seemingly positive reviews were written by affiliate marketers who don’t care if the product actually works or not. What they are after, is their commission at the end of the day.
It is true that this website seems legit, however what you should be worried about is if this device will actually save you energy, indeed?
What You Should Know About Miracle Watt Electricity Saver!
Though there are lots of positive reviews about this power saving device, they are not telling you the exact truth about the product. Below are reasons why you shouldn’t think of buying any power saving device-
Saves Little or No Energy
When you unbox the device, you would see it is a capacitor placed across the power line. This actually might do a little bit of power factor correction, but you are not billed for reactive power at home. So it saves you nothing in money.
Furthermore, the gadget capacitor draws about 100 mA of capacitive (leading) current from the line. If you happen to have a device which draws about 100 mA of inductive (lagging) current component, this capacitor will cancel that. It won’t draw more when you need more. Doesn’t stop drawing current when you don’t need any correction.
Probably has *just enough* effect that the statements in the ads are not complete lies, but the device is still completely useless in general.
Might Cause Fire Hazard
When I went through the video on the official website, the one thing I couldn’t tell from the video, and the narrator didn’t mention: Is the capacitor inside the Watt Rescue actually rated for connection across the AC line? Is it a fire hazard if there is a lightning strike nearby? Capacitors connected directly to the AC line are supposed to have an “X” rating for safety, and because this capacitor is potted in epoxy, I can’t tell if it if actually safe or not.
Fake Customer Reviews
The positive reviews online, both that of Youtube and Blogs, are all fake. This is because they were almost the same contents, copy and pasted with slight difference.
Also, We have seen this kinds of reviews and the exact device many times, and of a truth they are all the same. They don’t work. You can check this review here to see for yourself.
Does MiracleWatt Power Saver Really Work?
The answer to the question is complicated.
What you should know is this ”There is NO WAY any device of this size can stabilize a home electrical AC supply or produce the savings advertised. Electrical consumption is based on total power consumed and NOT phase corrected VAR.
Most power in homes is used for 230 – 240 VAC appliances such as heating water, cooking, drying clothes, air conditioning and heating. There is NO WAY a device plugged into any 110 – 120 VAC outlet can “reduce electrical consumption” by phase corrective techniques as consumed by equipment connected to each 120 VAC leg providing 240 VAC power, no way, totally inconceivable.
Before purchasing ask the seller to explain and guarantee ICE and ELI relationship for 200 AMP service found in most homes.
Is Miracle Watt A Hoax?
BBC has addressed the issue on this article here. The truth is that energy saving devices like Miracle Watt and the likes are unsafe and could cause a fire or electrocution.
There are a bunch of these devices with different names, but they all seem to have the same case. They don’t save any energy.
So what are the better ways to save energy and reduce electricity bills? check this review here to find out efficient ways to save energy in 2021.
UPDATE- In the one year this review was published, there have been opposing views on if this energy saver really works. We ask that you do due diligence when buying this product.
- Wendy is a fraud fighter whose contents mainly target online scams. Her investigations have appeared on Itisreviewed,and elsewhere. She spends her free time reading novels, binging on Netflix, and listening to hip-hop.
When I first came across the ad on 8 Dec 20 I was impressed and sent an email for more information. I asked about using it in Ecuador which uses 110V. Jessica’s response came back with bad and incorrect info. She said that Miracle Watt worked only in North America on 110V lines and not 220V (I never said anything about 220V).
I sent a 2nd email back correcting the bad info telling Jessica she knew very little about basic electricity (telling me that it works only in North America). I chastised her electrical knowledge saying electricity doesn’t care about country lines as electricity is electricity.
In further research, their heavily promoted TV review by Fox News said savings were 8% to 30%. Micro Watt claims savings up to 90%. Did they not bother to notice the contradiction?
My 3rd email asked about the contradiction. Still waiting to hear from their 24/7 email line.
Exactly it is a scam. If it actually worked we could solve any energy crisis. Imagine reducing world electricity use by 70-80 percent. THAT idea alone tells anyone that it is BS.
see my note above. It is NOT a scam for solar cell users. Don’t know about regular electric companies.
Lets face it mate you are in on the scam and you have sent a bogus report. May I respectfully suggest that you hand yourself in to the local police and fall on the ground saying sorry for trying to scam vulnerable people
Duh? I think you misread the entire entry…
Thanks for your input, ‘Fraud Catcher’! I spent a few hours trying to find honest opinions about this, and somehow figured out that all the ‘Good Reviews’ were placed by…..guess who? ‘PowerSaver’!! Thanks again for saving me $$$$
To long of an answer, utility trolls
In Ecuador they use 50 hertz in America we use 60 hertz thats the difference . Maybe that what she was talking about . Maybe the hertz is the problem with their device
See BBC for a fraudulent item again 2o21 it has been reported. If you get the urge to waste money do send it to me and I can waste it for you
I simply have smart plugs and they break the circuit and when say I want to make coffee I simply say plug two on. other than that there is no electricity going to that plug. I had the electric company do an audit of my uses and weaknesses and he told me he had one other “OLD GUY” that was more efficient than me. My house is uber-efficient and that is the main thing. I can’t even get a quote on solar panels because my electric bill is so low. I simply suggest if you really want to know, most electric companies will give you free of charge an audit on your home and what you can to do save money. It is no skin off their nose if you want to waste electricity…but they are generally happy to help you save on your electricity. I am a part of a co-op, but it has been my experience that they are all about the same. I am 80 and have owned my own home since 1968.
“IIt’s called MiracleWatt and its tech was originally created by no other than the legendary Serbian-American inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, and futurist, Nikola Tesla.” What exactly does that mean? Handy he died in 1943 so he can’t sue these jerks.
I bet you work for the utility company
I am an electrical engineer and I purchased one of these because I was doubtful about the claims. To be effective, it would have to be able to vary the capacitance needed to compensate for the power factor correction needed, which constantly changes according to what is running at the time, I disassembled this unit and was surprised. The capacitor which I expected to be across the A.C. line actually had both leads soldered to the same place on the circuit board. This made it do absolutely nothing. The rest of the circuit was only used to illuminate the green light on front. The only thing the unit I received could possibly do is light the green light and nothing else.
But why not try the device out first to see if it save electric power before taking it apart? Taking it apart seems to me that your were trying to learn how to made one yourself. Which is the only reason I see for taking a device apart whice does not say much for you. Besides if it was easy to understand how the device works anybody could make one.
He had the ability to disassemble and understand the function of the basic components of a electrical device. MiracleWatt’s claims on their website that “The average home will need approximately 3-4 weeks for the electricity to be stabilized, filtered and cleaned”. Electricity does not work this way. It is not a room full of air or a tank full of water. If you want to “clean/filter” you need a line conditioner or a uninterruptible power supply with that feature. Think of it this way; water coming from a garden hose runs into a charcoal filter to remove odor and other harmful chemicals. This is what you would “supply” your plants or “consume” from. It does not take 3-4 weeks for the water filter to filter the water it does so “on-demand” or as it flows through the filter. Garth you either a troll for MiracleWatt or clearly lack the knowledge to comment on this subject. Please move onto something you actually understand. Unhappy Customer; thank you for the details of your “investigation” of this product; it will help anyone who has any technical knowledge.
Thank you. That is what my brother would do to see if it actually was capable of working. Now I believe that it’s a scam. Most reviews ended up being copies of the ad published by MiracleWatt.
Thank you for taking the time to do the research! You just saved me $$$$
I wish to repeat my experience with Miracle Watt after 1 month.
I purchased 3 of the devices as I have a 2 story 3,400 sq ft home.
contrary to ALL of the negative reviews you see on here (which I believe are ALL posted by
Electric Company employees and are designed to scare away buyers)
I have a bank of solar cells on my roof purchased and installed last March, 2020.
so this note ONLY compares what happens with MY solar cells and not an electric company.
I received my 3 MiracleWatt devices mid-Feb. 2021 – about 3 weeks ago.
I was hopeful but not overly optimistic as to whether they could reduce my electric bill.
let me explain: Solar Cells mounted on peoples roof tops provide energy to the electric GRID.
Not the house. In exchange for each kwh that my cells produce to the grid, I receive 1 kwh in exchange.
overnight I don’t produce any electricity so I have to purchase electricity from a company which
uses Windmills to generate. I pay the same rates (more or less) for that electricity as I would from a regular company.
the info packet which comes with the devices explains that you need to plug them into 3 different outlets around the house, which I did. the instructions states that it takes about 3 weeks for the devices to begin functioning somewhat in the manner of a tuning fork for a piano.
At first it seemed nothing was happening. My Solar Cell monitoring program on my computer didn’t appear to record any change. I was disappointed at first, but patient to wait the 3 weeks.
Well, 3 weeks have gone by and WOW!. my solar cells normally produce only about 80% of the total daily kwh energy that I use or about 48kwh. Starting on March 2, 2021 I noticed that suddenly the cells were now generating some 62kwh to the grid EVERY DAY. This is more that I use so if I read this correctly from now on EVERY day the electric company will begin to owe me more that I use overnight.
again, this is only 3 weeks use, so I can only hope this is a long term win and my electric bill will no longer be a bill after a month or so.
I do not work for,, represent, or own stock in MiracleWatt. I am simply a normal home owner, contrary to what appear to be a bunch electric company schmucks.
I am a retired electrical engineer and I am neither associated with any power company nor with MiracleWatt. I just saw the ad for these and was curious enough to purchase them to try. I disassembled one and drew out the schematic diagram so I could see what was in it. There was nothing there to smooth or ‘clean up’ the power coming into my house. As for power factor correction, there was a capacitor but both leads were soldered to the same foil path on the circuit board rendering it completely useless. To be effective, it would need to be able to vary the power factor correction when loads in the house change as different appliances turn on and off. There was no circuitry to do this and there was no circuitry that would ‘learn’ over time. If it were going to function it would therefore do it from the start, not two or three weeks later. The only thing my unit could do is illuminate the green L.E.D. on front. I can only speak to the unit I received. Hopefully the ones you got were designed and built differently and will function as you desire.
I repeat – based on my use of these devices they have caused my solar cells to generate 2/3 MORE energy to the GRID than before I plugged them in based on 1 year of experience.
You’re smart guy! let other people get what they deserve.
You must be a shill for the people making this fraudulent device. Hope they pay you well.
If the device saves you 3% off your ac bill and you live where your ac bill is 200 to 300 dallor more for four months. Than you would save at least 25 to 30 dollars a year off a 1000 dollar plus yearly bill. Not much money for you. But would you rather your money goes to a small company trying to think up ways to save you money. Or give the money to the electical company CEO’s and politicans (lobbiests). I am going for the small compny.
Garth needs to learn how to spell.
This is the most fantastic device known to modern man. Not only.has it reduced my power bill, but it has increased the life of the batteries in my.flashlight twofold.

After reading all the comments before yours, I’ve come to the conclusion that your review had the most affect on my decision of whether to buy or not.
I can’t wait to cancel cable and put up the old rabbit ears! Why I bet with a copper infused covid masks over the top of them it will get stations even farther away! I’m also thinking with this device plugged in, if it helped your neighbor with his pacemaker, imagine the night my wife and I will have if it affects her pacemaker the same way!
I’m hoping the doorbell can tell the different seasons if I upgrade to the pro model! Anyway, thanks for the great review! It was the best laugh I’ve this month!!
I adore you.
I needed a genuine smile on my face and you gave me that.
If anyone thinks this actually works you need to ask yourself why isn’t government mandated. California doesn’t care what the power company thinks they would force the power company to install in every home if the device actually worked.
I came here just to see what other people were saying and to see if anyone caught the same thing I did in their ad.
The first thing I noticed was them talking about cleaning up the electric lines in OUR home. I thought maybe they are talking about surges, or spikes. But the more I read, the more I realized they were trying to BS their way through.
The second thing that caught my attention was when they said you can’t unplug it because it will take weeks for the plugged in systems to re-do your entire house from scratch. Really? So what happens during a power outage, or a brown out?
And the last and most obvious thing, you don’t clean electricity! You either supply a current, or you don’t. The only help you might need is in the way of a generator if you experience outages or brownouts often.
I worked with IBM for 21 years before I retired. I worked as a Field Engineer, an Instructor for Field Engineers, and support for other manufacturers who had design questions for creating a product to work with our products. I have some knowledge of electricity. This little gadget will not reduce your power bill between 50-90% unless you stop using high use products during peak hours!
Every time energy prices go up, the scam artists come out.
It was especially bad during the Arab Oil Embargo. Snake oil salesmen sold gasoline additives they were supposed to improve your milage.
This was how I learned to never trust testimonials. I bought one of those products. I’d kept track of my mileage beforehand. After a month of use, I noticed NO improvement at all. Then I saw the testimonials. Dozens and dozens of people claiming it improved their mileage anywhere from 10 to 30%. These were people I actually knew! They were either liars or they did not know how to calculate gas milage.
As far as I’m concerned, Save A Watt is just like the snake oil gas milage extder I foolishly bought years ago. Fortunately, nowadays we have the internet to do our research with!
this article was probably posted by a person who receives LARGE paychecks from power companies.
I AM a REAL user of Miracle Watt. no copy-paste here. just the facts.
MiracleWatt WORKS for me.
I own a roof full of Solar Cells.
Prior to purchasing 3 MiracleWatt devices my Solar Cells produced 70-80% of my daily electric needs.
After plugging in these devices my Solar Cells now produce between 150-250% of the energy I use daily.
The excess is sold to the Grid. My electric bill is now nearing 0 and I hope to soon be receiving payments FROM the Grid rather than bills. the reason it has been low is varied, so far, it has been that we have had a number of very cloudy days. But summer is coming on and every day the total energy generated by the cells increases.
I have had the solar cells for 1 year and have a complete daily graph of the energy produced. I can’t speak for what happens when you are connected to a regular energy company, only for what my own Solar Cell system has been doing for the past month and 1/2 which is how long I’ve had Miracle Watt devices plugged in.
so– if you have solar cells – this device will be a MIRACLE for you.
I highly recommend.
Thank you Mr. Park for your multiple reviews praising Miracle Watt. You have completely convinced my that Miracle Watt may work with your solar power array, but absolutely will not work in my home, since I do not have solar. When I have my retirement home finished, I will be completely off the grid, and miles and miles from any power lines.
george park, my advice to you, if you advertise the scam get yourself a book and educate yourself on the matter of the topic first otherwise you are writing an nonce even not technical people can see. For example you have claimed that you solar system produces three time more energy with MiracleWatt devices. How it can happen? Where the additional energy comes from? From MiracleWatt devices, no, since it is not a generator. So, it is not possible because of law of physics, it is called conservation of energy. This mean that you are a liar who is promoting a product which is totally useless. Also, I want to mention power factor correction some people mention. If your house has inductive appliances like the Fridge or watching machine, farness etc , then the power factor will go down. This mean the Electrical company, not you will loose electricity. That is why Electrical companies will fine business which have low power factor. Conclusion: MiracleWatt devices is Scam.
It amazes me that in March 2021 he had them for 3 weeks, them in April 2021 he had them for a year, strange for a truthful salesman. sounds like a used car salesman to me.
Glad I read more than one site about this Miracle box! Not an electrician of any sort but did wonder why it took weeks to start working when normally my lights come on when I flip the switch and I don’t need to plan ahead to use cooker/washer/tv etc – thank goodness. And 90% savings? Ooooh but hmmmm??? Again the lack of electrical experience did lead me to question this. Good to hear someone is experiencing a Miracle with his box though! .
Looking at the ad in detail. It sure is a load of crap. The picture of a UK/Irish 230v plug socket with the mysterious Voltex contraption plugged in it is a load of nonsense. UK plugs have the cable coming out of the plug at 6 o’clock. No double socket would ever be in the vertical position or else you could only use the bottom socket, just as you can’t use the top one in this pathetic photoshopped garbage.
you can buy a watt meter for cheap at Harbor freight tools. you could then plug your frig into the miracle watt and also use the watt meter to monitor how much power it’s using.
Hi, I d’like tot have my 100€ back. Totally fraude. It uses energy in stad off saving. DON’T BY IT!!!
These make a dandy night light.
whatever a liberal says, I’ll believe the opposite
This liberal offers a health tip—please don’t shoot yourself in the face.
this page of reviews is totally useless
A qualified electrician took it apart. All it does is light up the little green light. There is no circuitry in it that would indicate any such complicated function as advertised. Not only that, it actually USES electricty (to light up.) Not very much, but it’s trying to make you think that it’s working so they made it that it lights up. I’m wondering if anyone asked for a refund, and if they got it.
Well, Holly…actually that’s one of the first things that caught my attention; they offer a 100% money back AFTER 90 days…..the same amount of time they claim that it takes for the contraption to start working effectively. I think pure common sense should tell anyone that something that does nothing but plug into a receptacle could do absolutly nothing but use electricity….not produce it. LOL But this site sure gave me good ensite, and a good chuckle. I’m glad I did find this site and was able to read some honest opinions, otherwise I was tempted to buy three of these things just to try them.
I ordered 2, put them in place as they described, and waited for my electric bill. It dropped $10.00 in month one and $20.00 in month 2. That lasted about a year I noticed the bill jumped so I ordered 3 because I noticed in a video that I should actually have 3 in my house.
I plugged the new ones in and the bills dropped right back down again. They definitely work. I see about a 20% reduction on my bill. They paid for themselves very quickly.
Hey Key, did you try to plug this device into your rear end and see if you can run 20% faster? I would recommend two devices and then you can compete for the next Olympics.
If additional units reduce your power bill more, why not buy 10 of them???
Sheeesh, why not buy a 100 of them? I could easily live off the amount of electricity these “devices” would feed back into the electric grid! This incredibly arrogant add is the most laughable thing I’ve read in years! The saddest thing is that the manufacturers of this devise probably made an awful lot of money from people that don’t realize the whole concept is entirely impossible. They should be forwarded to the FBI database for investigation of scams on line!
