Motex Energy Controller: 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 Motex Energy saver is been sold for 50% discount. You also get to pay lower when you buy more.

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?

Should You Be Worried About

The answer to that question is Yes. The claims made by the website is totally false. Don’t be deceived by the name ‘Motex’. The device has been given the same name as a legitimate label maker company in Australia in order to trick buyers. The poor embossing company has absolutely nothing to do with this device.

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.

Below are reasons why Motex from isn’t WORTH your Money;

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. It won’t stop drawing current when you don’t need any correction.

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.

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 Motex  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.

Does Motex Power Saver Really Work?

The answer to the question is NO.

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 Hoax?

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.


  1. Thank you for the review and feed back. I agree how can a device live that can save you 90% of your bill, sounds too good to be true. And yes I do have solar Panels for past 3.5 years and I do get 90% to 100% reduce on Electricity. Winter I pay more as is little sun shine but other months little or nothing.

  2. Ironically, Google is still happily advertising this device.
    Let’s not let something as simple as a few outright lies stand between Google an their profit margin

  3. Do NOT buy this device. “A fool and his money are easily parted”. This Motex or Voltex device is totally bogus and not necessary for domestic home power supplies. It will NOT save you money by correcting power factor (a true phenomena), but the device is bogus and has nothing to do with German inventors Nicola Tesla or anyone else. They used to sell them under the name Voltex from a bogus address in America, Montana I recall.

  4. I agree with Andy Preston’s comments, Google and Facebook are happy to take their money.
    Also, and I can’t add the picture here, but the image of a large nail being held by grips near yo a British double wall socket, with large red arrows suggesting putting it in the holes, is extremely worrying. Considering I have seen child endangerment/suicide provoking images similar to this, it’s scandalous!

    1. You are quite right! It was that alarming image which brought me into investigating Motex in the first place. I just could not quite believe my eyes, seeing the proposed electrocution in the ad

          1. I accidentally bought this motex using pay pal, yes was just just checking it out but had a multiple sclerosis blackout and must have pushed but now button which enables me to buy via PayPal immediately, have now switched of this off. didn’t realise I had bought it till next day, thought my account was hacked so contacted pay pal…was not unauthorised action. so sent many emails to retailer asking for address to return, they failed to help until email back today asking for photos which I did. oh gadget still in sealed box. no response and soon my 14 days will be up ,so as a chronic sick disabled pensioner I through stupidity am £59 worse off and not a clue where to turn to now….I do hope this scam stops and soon.

  5. Thanks for the review. This device Jan 22 has a prominent advert at head of eBay UK suggesting perhaps some legitimacy which prompted me to check out opinions online.

  6. I’m so pleased I came here first before parting with any money. The old adage that if it looks to be that good, it isn’t, certainly holds true. What a load of crap google etc allow on their platforms! Money is king I guess

  7. I saw this on Facebook and thought it sounded a bit fishy. After looking through their site my initial suspicion was correct. 90% reduction in electricity usage is impossible with such a device, and any device you could plug into a socket. Sadly, many will indeed take the bait and get caught. Hopefully more people will see this page before they lose their money, and possibly their lives.

  8. It worked for me. I plugged one in and it blew the main RCD. The result was that I had no electricity and therefore saved
    100% of my electric bill whilst it was in use. Genius trick.

  9. Thanks for the review & all the comments. It really is too good to believe that big companies can take advertiser’s money without even checking them out. Take note of the old adage- If it sounds too good to believe- LEAVE IT OUT.
