Have you been suffering high electrical bills and looking for a way to reduce the cost of electricity? Did you stumble on an Ad for Motex on YouTube or Facebook? Wondering if Motex power saver can reduce your electricity bill or if it is another fad product? This review is for you!
Motex Energy Saver
Many words have been used to describe this product. Some of the words include; ‘Contraption’ ‘Motex Energy Saver’, ‘Motex Power Saver’ ‘Get Motex’ etc. But the main question is; does it really do the work it claims to do?.
During our investigations, we discovered some inconsistencies about this product. Below are reasons why you shouldn’t think of buying this power saving device-
Getmotex.com advert claims there’s some kind of science behind the product. However, not only is the ‘science’ complete hogwash, but even the photo of the ‘company founders at an expo in Berlin” is just a generic commercial pic you can download from Shutterstock, istockphoto, et al.
Meanwhile, we have seen this kind of device many times. They go by different names; Voltex, Voltbox, Watt Rescue, Ecowatt, Miracle Watt, etc. and of a truth they are all the same. They don’t work. A lot of users complained that these devices don’t save any energy or reduce electricity bill.
Not Equipped To Save any 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.
It probably has *just enough* effect that the statements in the ads are not complete lies, but the device is still completely useless in general.
Danger of Electrocution
Just like similar ‘power saving devices’ the capacitor inside the Motex is not rated for connection across the AC line. It is 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.
There are a lot of reviews online that are false and don’t give concrete info about this product. Real Motex Customer reviews can be seen on TrustPilot here, and also in our first Motex review here. These reviews indicate that Motex energy saver does not reduce electricity bills.
Can Not Reduce Electrical Consumption
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.
Is Motex a Scam?
Yes, it is. BBC has addressed the power saving device scam here
Energy saving devices like Motex and the likes are unsafe and could cause a fire or electrocution.
So what are the better ways to save energy and reduce electricity bills? Get these solar power system. These devices can actually provide big savings on mains electricity bills.
