Ecotek Energy Wizard saves energy

by Ally

A lot of appliances currently created are a lot more mindful of their energy usage.  However, for those of us using old appliances or ones from companies that just don’t care about that sort of thing, there is a bit of hope.  The Energy Wizard is intended to make sure that your appliance doesn’t suck up quite so much energy as it normally would.  Of course these Ecotek Energy Wizards are only going to help out those with a standard UK 3 pin plug socket.

It could reduce your consumption by up to 10%, just depending on how badly your appliance leaches power.  It works by making sure the alternating current and voltage works a little more smoothly.  The voltage and current rise and fall together.  By forcing you appliance to do that it makes it run much more efficiently and will bring down that energy bill.  You can purchase one of these for £23.50 through Amazon.

Any gadget that helps us save energy and improve resources, has my approval. :-)

So it’s a power conditioner.

Good idea, but too bad it doesn’t incorporate a timer. I’d rather see something that lets my fridge turn off for 22 hours of the day, and turn on only for 2 hours of the day. I’m sure the danged thing doesn’t need to be on half the day to keep my food cold.

If my fridge can keep food cold for more than 2 days without opening it during a bad power outage, I’m sure 2 hours a day of limited power use won’t hurt it. Same goes for my hot water tank, as 95% of my hot water usage is either at the beginning or the end of the day.

Of course they don’t work. How on earth could they.

These devices are an out and out con. There’s nothing in them apart from a few components to make the leds work. They are not power conditioners and the won’t save any power.

Well i used my owl electricity usage monitor to check consumption before and after plugging in the device. It showed less power consumption when i plugged it in and switched it on, so thats good enough for me.

The only way to save power is to use less, sorry to be a party pooper. It may have a capacitor that corrects power factor in certain instances and that could be what is indicated by the owl device.Unfortunately the charging meter will still read the same. Save money, don’t buy this.
