So we had the guy in to service the water filtration system (not too sure if I can name the company so wont).
Nice guy, chatted away and suddenly the conversation changed to our electricity bill;
How much is your bill a month?
Would you like it to be cheaper etc.?
We knew it was a sales pitch but let him off. He was very good though to be fair and was talking about electrical currents moving in wavelengths and trying to make it appear as though you were putting the dots together.
Anyway he says "We are selling this Electricity Saving Box" that could save you anywhere between 18-30% on your bill and has done so for over 3000 of our customers.
Our first question was how much, to which we got, "sure its €49 but I will take off the VAT and give it to you for €40".
Next question: You have mentioned about the research and studies done, please give the name of one as my laptop is on and I would like to have a quick look.
Response "Ummm, ahhh" then he handed me the box and said look for yourself.
I googled like crazy (a 2 min search) and found that it does regulate the power supply but surges are not meant to be charged in our bills anyway (I may be wrong here, corrections welcome). We said thank you but no thanks to him saying that his bill has decreased 20%. To be honest I think he probably plugged it in during February and compared the bill to the last one in Winter (so it would be less).
So heres the question, does anyone out there have this device and notice a difference? The box also said "Regulated by the Chinese Energy Board" don't know if thats a good thing or not?
