    Anyone using that XtraPc device can sue these people because you need internal maintenance to get your computer running correctly and if you use it without the maintenance it will make your computer get really hot inside and then chips can separate from the board with the extra heat this causes because dust is blocking the air vents and maybe even stopping your cooling fan. These guys are idiots and you should not trust this device because it could cause you major problems with your computer and then will end up costing way more than what it would have with the proper repair.

    I just downloaded a weather app and a ad popped up for one of these so I had to check it out and yep just as I thought a made in china piece of shitscam and now I deleted the app as well.

  3. Ron Wilson on May 14, 2020 at 4:26 pm

    A total scam. Does nothing!

  4. Madden Master on May 14, 2020 at 4:28 pm

    Thank u..u saved me $40 .

  5. Farhad Azari on May 14, 2020 at 4:29 pm

    Few years ago there was a scammer named Keshe ! Who lives in Europe and claimed that have made same thing that reduce the bill by 50 percent but it came out to be a huge scam and he went to jail and finally disappeared

    geil kann ich da nur sagen! Chinese Powersavar…… Danke für den fundierten Nachweis

  7. Stephen W on May 14, 2020 at 4:34 pm

    Don’t waste your cash. Doesn’t do anything that is heat related. For example stove, microwave,dishwasher, clothes washer , drier and water heater… wow so what is left that takes up the most current….your tv….no… no….scam

  8. marcia wright on May 14, 2020 at 4:34 pm

    wow… great review

  9. Patrick O on May 14, 2020 at 4:34 pm

    will it reduce dirty electricity?

  10. DorianTech 2 on May 14, 2020 at 4:36 pm

    0:15 It should be "optimizes" instead of "optimisers".

  11. muse 77 on May 14, 2020 at 4:37 pm

    Save electricity by unplugging everything until you use them. Use low light bulbs. Turn lights off when not in use. Don’t watch tv and be on a computer all day. Read a book. Write something. ROFLMHO. This too will reduce your electric bill. (BG) it’s FREE.😂😊😂😆

  12. WeatherFox on May 14, 2020 at 4:39 pm

    If you see an add on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc…and it looks/sounds too good to be true, it is. Not probably is, but it is. People believe and buy anything these days.

  13. me on May 14, 2020 at 4:40 pm

    At least it would help heat a room. Lol

  14. DOOMspork on May 14, 2020 at 4:40 pm

    Thanks for this video, cured my curiosity from the ad I saw during a mobile game.

  15. rizo15 on May 14, 2020 at 4:43 pm

    I didn’t understand a single word in this video.

  16. Vee Lee on May 14, 2020 at 4:43 pm

    You are AWESOME 👏

  17. deslocc124 on May 14, 2020 at 4:43 pm

    Yup.. it’s been said you can’t get electricity out of thin air… but most nations like the US can.. (ie.. they make money out of thin air)

  18. Edward Wilson on May 14, 2020 at 4:48 pm

    The reason people claim these work is because, usually when they buy them, they’re also doing other things to lower energy consumption, like lowering their temperature and leaving lights off. So it appears to them that the capacitor did do something.

  19. Matt Miller on May 14, 2020 at 4:48 pm

    I would jam a bent up cafeteria fork into my wall outlets before I would plug this Rube Goldberg scam device into my homes wiring. I would however, be willing to plug it into *your* homes wiring system.🤔🤣

  20. Justin Case on May 14, 2020 at 4:49 pm

    Thanks for that video. Very technical and another scam product that I am not purchasing!

  21. Quanchy Plimp on May 14, 2020 at 4:51 pm

    improves the votage?, so, did you get more votes as a result of using this wonderful piece of shit?

  22. Jolly John on May 14, 2020 at 4:51 pm

    What is he smoking?

  23. Andy N. on May 14, 2020 at 4:52 pm

    If its too good to be true, it probably is

  24. Free vbucks on May 14, 2020 at 4:53 pm

    electroboom already said no

  25. James Richard Wiley on May 14, 2020 at 4:53 pm

    It cost extra to plug it in.
    A capacitor with led lights.
    Total scam.
    Buy it today!

  26. J C on May 14, 2020 at 4:57 pm

    Can you just say pressure washer instead of saying “ Chinese “ fucker

  27. Mr Good Feel Be JKER on May 14, 2020 at 4:58 pm

    Fake power safe

  28. Jackie Varnes on May 14, 2020 at 4:59 pm

    I now check anything and all items I find online. This was great. Didn’t understand a thing you said. But when you changed the country to China and tore up the pamphlet, your review was clear as day, saved me money right there. Thank you

  29. dhananjaya routray on May 14, 2020 at 4:59 pm

    German are not story teller

  30. Furbylady1952 on May 14, 2020 at 5:00 pm

    Great Scott you are a very smart man!! Thanks for explaining all this and giving us the facts!

  31. Mani Bharathy on May 14, 2020 at 5:00 pm

    Germany still uses old wheel type energy meter instead of digital lcd display type?

    Engineer here, we pay for electrical power that is the product of the current flow in amperes and the electrical force that causes current to flow in volts. Power equals amperes times volts, that simple. Direct current is always amps time volts, but alternating current is different because it is constantly changing polarity, in the US, 60 times per second.

    And because of this the current and voltage are not always in phase depended on the load. They are in a pure resistive circuit like an incandescent bulb, but in a reactive circuit like a capacitance the current waveform leads the voltage, capacitance loads are rare in home appliances. More common are inductive loads, cause by coils of wire with a ferrite base as in any electrical motor, like in your heating system for air flow or your refrigerator.

    Can’t draw a sine wave here, but the maximum shift in current in respective to voltage can only be 90 degrees, where in the case of an inductive load, when the current is maximum the voltage is zero. So if the voltage is say 120 volts root means square, and the current is say 10 amperes also root means if 90 degrees out of phase, the product of voltage and current would be ZERO. All electrical meters are designed to read only what is called true power. A volt meter will read 120 VAC, an ammeter will read 10 amps, if in phase, 120 time 10 is 1200 watts!

    If 90 degrees out of phase, a power meter will read 0 watts. The amount of phase shift is called power factor and true power exist when voltage and current are in phase. But normally somewhere between true power for in phase, and apparent power, 90 degrees out of phase.

    Can only guess whats in those little boxes you plug in your receptacles, more than likely a capacitor to compensate for inductive loads. They will tend if sufficient capacitance, and should mention AC capacitors are much larger than DC capacitors, will fool your electrical meter and actually increase your rates. This is not new, been an engineer for over 60 years and this same BS for lack of a better word, was true back then. You said a sucker is born every minute, if its too good to be true, it isn’t.

    I hope people aren’t buying this product! I see ads all over the place for it!

  35. Mohammed Naseem on May 14, 2020 at 5:04 pm

    It is a shame that none of your guys could actually recommend a gadget which genuinely reduces the bills

  36. jj shoot on May 14, 2020 at 5:09 pm

    This box made a lot of money for the scammer ..
    he’s out on his Boat drinking the wine .

  37. George Indestructible on May 14, 2020 at 5:09 pm

    Something like this(not this product specifically just the concept) would stop my PC’s monitor from going off for a moment after my dehumidifier turning on its compressor to work though wouldn’t it(because i, by needs have them connected on the same wall socket)?

  38. Susnata Seal on May 14, 2020 at 5:10 pm

    In my country they send electric bills based on the actual readings on the household meters. So if i put capacitors in parallel to my household compliances, can I trick the distributors into sending me a bill of a smaller amount?

  39. Audrey Email RCAM LLC on May 14, 2020 at 5:11 pm

    So how can we reduce power bill

  40. tinker bot on May 14, 2020 at 5:12 pm

    These actually work good for inexpensive "dirty electricity" filters – though I am still researching those too.

  41. Yakeema Taleem on May 14, 2020 at 5:12 pm

    thanks I feel so much smarter.

  42. Jim Robertson on May 14, 2020 at 5:12 pm

    You notice online, when anyone asks, “do these really work”? The question is totally avoided?! SCAM!

  43. MRK Ape 2003 on May 14, 2020 at 5:12 pm

    you just made the company go poor

  44. John Yancey on May 14, 2020 at 5:13 pm

    Great example! Thanks for going into the device and giving a detailed description and exposing the truth about the electrical junk people try to sell on the internet! I appreciate what you did.

  45. David Malawey on May 14, 2020 at 5:17 pm

    Isn’t the anodizing actually an insulator? I agree it’s definitely not safe but with 8020 extrusions I found the anodizing had to be scratched quite strongly to reveal conductor.

  46. Muranaman on May 14, 2020 at 5:17 pm

    China, where people eat what you spoon feed them!

  47. Darling Hysa on May 14, 2020 at 5:20 pm

    china products are only good to clean shi..they arent never good enough to get on

  48. Why Ask on May 14, 2020 at 5:21 pm

    My nigga , does it save money or not, I don’t fucking Get it!

  49. Neil P71 on May 14, 2020 at 5:21 pm

    The secret undercover agent living inside the device will go to work as soon as the unit is plugged in. The agent will run deep cover missions inside your electric wires in your home looking for zombies. He will find and kill zombies that are roaming around using energy making ng you pay more every month. This secret agent has everything he needs to carry out his missions. My advice is that you read the lable and make sure you buy the unit that states a secret agent is indeed living inside the unit and comes free with your purchase.

    Winner of a video, I’ve been looking for "save money on my electric bill" for a while now, and I think this has helped. You ever tried – Bennafal Nonaniel Theorem – (just google it )?

    It is a good exclusive product for reducing your electricity bill without the normal expense. Ive heard some extraordinary things about it and my neighbour got great success with it.
