Does the Voltbox really reduce electricity bill? Should you get this energy saver or is it another ripoff scam? Find out here!
In case you’re thinking of ordering the energy saving device called Voltbox, we advise you not to do so yet. A lot of things don’t add up about the product and the reviews online.
With online scams springing up every day, we have taken the responsibility of reviewing products, stores, websites e.t.c in order to save you from making wrong decisions.
Our Review of this product serves as an eyeopener. We hope it meets you well, and on time.
Voltbox 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 Voltbox 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 Concerned About getvoltbox.com?
The answer to that question is Yes. The claims made by the website is totally false. Don’t be deceived by the name ‘Voltbox’. The device has been given the same name as a legitimate electrical supplies company in Australia in order to trick buyers. The poor electrical company has absolutely nothing to do with this device.
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. 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 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 Voltbox 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 Voltbox A Scam?
Solarquotes has addressed the issue on this article here. The truth is that energy saving devices like Voltbox 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. A lot of users complained that these devices don’t save any energy or reduce electricity bill.
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.

Thank you Sabi.
I was suspicious of the product…and your knowledge of electricity/vars and the cutting/pasting of the ”reviews” has assured I will NOT be purchasing the so-called Voltbox.
Mt thanks again for your site!

I orderd one but they charged me for 2. Asked for refund. Yet to see.
They tricked me to pay 2.
Interestingly enough, if the device is just a capacitor, it’ll actually make most household power factor worse, rather than better. The reason being is that the majority of electrical appliances with switch mode power supplies (including TVs, computers, LED lighting, etc) – all appear as a capacitive leading current.
In this case, a better device to fix the power factor would be an inductor, but for a regular household, this would be the size of an esky at least!
However – given that we are billed on real power and not apparent power all of it as a moot point.
Thank You ever so much, as you said,.. it is an eye opener, told my wife it can not be true, and she only believed me when I verified it on your website, again thank you!!
Thanks for the article. Very convincing promotion on the website and commenced placing an order.
Thought I should check for any reviews and found your review. Not proceeding with the purchase. Thanks so much for putting the record straight.
I just received my order of three. Do I have any chance of getting my money back if I have not opened the packages yet.. The website says refunds within 2 months but????
i’m just wondering if you have received your refund yet? like you i was silly enough and got scammed. i’m waiting for a refund.
Thank’s to all for clear information as well as technical wise
I was just about to order 3 of them. Thank you for the review, you saved me money and hassles of returning them when I realize that they are not functioning.
I was also seriously considering a purchase of 3.
Good article, to the point!
This is a BIG SCAM!!! Voltbox does not work.!!! Wasted R1850 !!!
Thankyou very much for your well explained scam details on Voltbox. Like some of your other respondents, I too was considering purchasing these devices but am glad I decided to investigate them further. It never ceases to amaze me what joy these scammers get out of going out of way to ruin other peoples.
Again, keep up the good work.
How can anyone be so Gullible as to believe you can plug something into power to save power???
Two Words for Them
It’s a scam.
It’s a scam.
It’s a scam.
The best way to reduce your bill is to use less. You can switch on the dish washer or the clothes washing machine when it is full. Don’t drop your used clothes in the hamper after a few hours of use only. Don’t use a dryer when you have space or time to let the laundry dry naturally. Reduce the use of your hot water, that is the biggest electricity guzzler. Do not use air conditioning or use it sparingly, you can wear lighter clothes. Don’t heat too much water each time, measure what you need. Same for oven and micro wave use. Switch off the stand-by modes… Oh you can halve your bill with discipline, but that is HARD! And of course you can go solar! And you can donate your savings to charities for people who have no electricity yet in their homes (-:
Duidelijk. Maar wat een moeite van Voltbox om dit te promoten. De boemerang zal hen nog in het gezicht vliegen.
Dank voor de waarschuwing °
Thank YouTube vers much. YOU made me saving money!!

Weren’t you away on holiday for 2 weeks that month?….
Hello “Phillip Thomas” AKA paid reviewer and/or an employee of one of the companies selling these SCAM, worthless, dodgy, DANGEROUS devices.
How do you feel knowing that you are promoting a device that does not save money on energy costs, but could also, potentially, end the lives of men, women and children (babies too) in house fires caused by these devices?
I doubt that in truth, you can’t sleep soundly because of your conscious. And that you, and others involved in this disgusting scam won’t be able to until the day you die…
Spent £18 on one of these during the Pandemic
No visible savings at all
I’m not sure if getvoltbox.com is a scam, but I would be very careful before I used their services.
