Once again, scammers have launched a large-scale online campaign in which they try to promote a completely useless device as an electricity-saving miracle. The advertisement for NeoWatt states:
“NeoWatt is a small, compact, affordable and easy-to-use plug-in device that prevents unnecessary power from entering your electrical lines and overloading your network.”
But that’s untrue. NeoWatt is simply a surge protector that is installed in every building in Europe anyway. Whether or not they use NeoWatt in addition to the surge protector they already have has no effect on your electricity costs.
Earlier names of NeoWatt were Voltbox, Ecotex, EnergyFix and Pro Power Save. The name StopWatt has now been added. These devices are technically identical and differ only in name.
