Miracle Watt is claimed by its seller to be an energy saving device designed to stabilize electrical current, a process that they say will help decrease electricity costs for users.
How is MiracleWatt Claimed to Work?
The seller states that once you plug the device into an outlet near your breaker box it will start working automatically, using special electricity stabilizing technology to increase the efficiency of your home’s power usage.
Experts agree that devices that are turned off can still draw power when plugged in, which can add to electricity expenses and shorten the lifespan of your electronics.
Miracle Watt is also intended to help avoid power surges that can damage electronic devices.
The device also purportedly offers benefits for human health as well as the health of your appliances. Some people believe prolonged exposure to dirty electricity can be linked to health issues like cancer, fatigue, insomnia, and asthma.
The MiracleWatt is intended to function as a dirty-electricity filter, reducing human exposure to dangerous electromagnetic fields (EMF) emitted from popular electronics like computers and televisions.
These are hefty claims, but does Miracle Watt really work? Online customer reviews of the device don't seem to back up these claims.
Online Customer Reviews & Complaints
Unsurprisingly, the only place to find positive customer reviews of Miracle Watt is on their own website.
Unfortunately, since there no other review sources offer such glowing reviews, we are unconvinced that the rave reviews are genuine, or that the product is credible.
Other online customer reviews state that the MiracleWatt made no difference at all to their power bills. Other claims made by company are more difficult to verify.
However, those who have working knowledge of household electricity and electrical engineers have pointed out the flaws in the product’s claims and have explained why it’s a likely hoax.
In addition to the negative reviews that you will find below they also have a 1.67/5 rating with the BBB.
MiracleWatt Company Details
According to their website, the parent company for MiracleWatt is:
Comeback Commerce, Inc
1624 Market St STE 226
Denver, CO 80202
Googling that address reveals that it belongs to Denver Office Suites, a company offering virtual office addresses to businesses.
In fact, Comeback Commerce Inc is not a Denver based business but is a registered Delaware company.
ImportGenius.com, a service that tracks the import histories of companies, shows a U.S. customs record of an order for 500 “Power Reflector Device” from China by Comeback Commerce Inc.
It appears that the MiracleWatt is a wholesale purchased and rebranded Chinese product which is then rebranded and resold by the company under as MiracleWatt.
You can find virtually identical products to the MiracleWatt sold on Amazon and Chinese based wholesaler websites, marketed under a number of different names.
Miracle Watt is normally priced at $118.00, but their current 50% off sale allows you to purchase one for $59.00, with further discounts available when purchasing multiple units.
The company states they offer free shipping within the U.S.
You can contact customer service by e-mailing [email protected] Their website states that support is available 24/7.
The company claim to offer a 90 day return period. In order to initiate a refund you must first contact the company to receive a RMA# and then send the unit back to:
PO BOX 447
Lakeland, FL 33802
Where to Buy?
You can only order MiracleWatt through their website.
Competitors and Alternatives
The Miracle Watt, or products very similar to it, have been marketed for some time under various names.
These include Eco Watt 365, StopWatt, Watt Rescue, Watt Pro Saver, Power Watt Pro, Voltex Energy Saver, PowerVolt, and others.
Is the MiracleWatt a Scam?
According to the EIA, the average American home uses about about 893 kWh of electricity per month, the cost of which adds up quickly.
It's not surprising that consumers would love to find an effective way to help cut down that monthly expense.
However, we do not believe that the MiracleWatt is a viable solution, and in fact would categorize Miracle Watt a scam based on our research.
The company makes almost no effort to attempt to explain how the MiracleWatt works, and we have concerns over whether the technology it claims to use is even effective in the first place.
Additionally, the lack of verified positive customer reviews, coupled with the red flags raised by company's use of a virtual address, leaves us unable to recommend this product.

Reduce power...Save money
Found a brand new one at a garage sale for a buck. Didn't do squat. The best way to reduce electrical bill is to shut off lights in unused rooms, turn off appliances (like TV's) not being watched, use efficient LED light bulbs. Set AC thermostat at a slightly warmer setting,...ELECTRICITY...USE LESS - PAY LESS. That's what really works.
Straight scam, false advertising at its best!
Refund? Ha ha ha
Does Not Work!! I Am Out $59!!!
I bought one of these for my 1500 s.f. condo and did not see any savings in my electric bill!
Does. Not. Work. At. All.
While I'm not an electrical engineer, I worked with many in the energy efficiency business for over 40 years.
This product is pure BS, one of many products over decades purporting to reduce electrical consumption while maintaining device output. These people should be prosecuted. Absolute nonsense.
It's a SCAM!!! Period.
Been in the Comm business for over 40 Years. This comment directly from their website had me blowing Coffee out of my nose and rolling on the floor. "Reduces Dirty EMF Electricity
The patent-pending magnetic filter removes carbon from the electrical circuit helping to significantly reduce your exposure to harmful electromagnetic radiation (EMF/EMR) generated by your electronics, appliances, and dirty electrical system.."
Lying. If it works why only 2 stars?
Exactly, clown! We all know it doesn’t work dummy, delete your fake review

After reading about this device on my local news (unfortunately). I have found many flaws with their selling points. 1, they tell you to buy two of these units and plug it into an outlet closet to your panel and farthest from your panel.
This does not mention phase. Every household has two phases of 120 volts, 180 degrees out of phase. This is how you get 240 volts for certain appliances such as stoves and dryers. If the outlet by your panel is on phase A and the farthest outlet is still on phase A. Then phase B circuity would be unaffected. They don't even state this on their website.
2, they show a graph showing the leading and lagging of current vs voltage. However, this is only for capacitive loads and inductive loads. Were capacitive loads, current leads voltage and inductive loads, current lags voltage.
Most households only have resistive loads. for example, a 60-watt incandescent lightbulb connected to a 120-volt power supply will use 0.5 amps. The resistance of that light bulb is 240 ohms. This is known as ohms law (resistance x current = voltage) (current x voltage = wattage).
In capacitive and inductive loads, the power factor is always lower than 1. In a resistive load the power factor is equal to 1. Think about it like beer, in capacitive and inductive loads "foam" will be created when pouring the beer. How much foam being produced is how close the power factor is to 1. The closer to 1 the less foam (0.97), the farther from 1 the more foam (0.45).
Meaning no power on a resistive load is wasted due to current and voltage being in phase (1). This item is clearly a scam. No purchase needed to reach my conclusion.
But you absolutely got to plug it into the outlet closest to the power meter box!
I don't believe this at all...
S C A M
Have tried similar products such as this, none have worked to this date and they're are all scams
Scam - Pure Nonsense. Current version of a perpetual motion machine.
The device(s) powered still consumes the same electricity to do the same work. There is no magic.
What’s the difference?
This is bogus!
It doesn't work
Bought to 3 months ago when my bill was $500 a month three months later my bill is now $760.
I've been using Miracle Watt for over 5 months and have not seen any benefit.
The phone number!!!
i would like to know how do I get in touch with these people I ordered one and they sent two, I want to send one back and get my refund...
My bill increased and my power was not affected.
I purchased 2 of them to try here was my experience.
I looked at my electricity with a oscilloscope and could see "dirty electric" The sine wave was distorted and there were spikes on both sides of the 0 line. I let them run for 88 days so I had 3 electric bills during that period, each bill was larger than the last. The ad said it would take several months for the full effect of them would be reached. I put the scope on my electric before I took them out and the power was just the same as it looked before I installed them! My opinion is they don't work at best any may increase the bill at worst.
Maybe shoulda put down the oscilloscope connectors for 10 minutes and research for real reviews of this device first instead of supporting their scam just a little longer but buying it,
Okay Rach. To do a review of any real value you need to have the product to substantiate or debunk marketing claims. Doing the science means more than just rendering an opinion based only on observation. If someone is willing to spend the 60 bucks to do this, at least part of the investigation needed, why criticize them for it?I would like an electrical engineer to take it a few steps further and open one of these devices up to see what is really inside it. Is there anything in it that could possibly or even remotely do what the marketer says it does. Now most of us see something like this and quickly determine that, on face value alone, there is no way any device plugged into a single outlet in your home could affect all of the flow of electricity in your home other than to draw more usage. Now if this was a robust device that was installed between the homes electrical meter and the main power supply, maybe there could be some legitimacy to it. But such a device could not be installed safely by your typical home owner and then an electrician would have to have the power company shut off power to the meter in order to safely install such a device. So most people would not do a knee-jerk purchase of the device.So buyer beware of any claims made by anyone that a little piece of plastic with an led light plugged into an outlet in your home will do anything short of providing you with another little green light in one of your outlets.Oh by the way Rach, I have a device that you can attach to any faucet inside or outside your home that will not only purify all of the water in your home but it will also reduce your water bill by 50%. It accomplishes this by reducing the overall weight of the water coming into your home. Most of the water coming into homes is so laden down with impurities that it takes on average of twice the amount of water and water pressure to move it throughout your home thus wasting a lot of water and more than doubling your water bill. The technology is based on the hydrodynamics of Daniel Bernoulli FRS - considered to be the Father of hydrodynamics. The technology behind this patented device has been buried for years in the US patent office due to industrywide technology suppression and has only just recently been released for public use. So I advise you and anyone else reading this to get at least one of these units (2 are required for homes over 1100 sq.ft.) and start saving now! For a limited time I can offer you this device (limit one per shipping address) for FREE. Just pay the shipping cost (average of $53.99 in the contiguous US) and it is yours - absolutely free! I am even offering a FREE - 1YEAR limited warranty! So there is no risk at all! GET YOURS NOW and start SAVING TODAY!
I am a retired Electrical Engineer with a Masters Degree and a Professional Engineering License. Send me one and I will take it apart and provide an engineering report pro-bono.
Bernoulli's equation applies to fluid dynamics not electricity. Electricity is not a Newtonian fluid.
Technical info you need to know
I am not a customer so maybe this will never be released, but I have significant electrical experience..... and it is important to know the following.
What this product is reporting to do is called Power Factor Correction (getting current & voltage waves in synch - see their waveform graph): Google 'power factor correction' but be prepared for some way to deep in-depth info. Better yet call your electric company & ask if their electric meters are affected by it; some are, some aren't.
If your meter does not measure the impact of power factor, then how can this save you money?? Sure they say they clean 'dirty' electric power. Maybe they do, but do you get charged for dirty electric power?? Probably not; so no savings there!
Bottom line: Call your electric company & see what they say. Maybe your electric meter measures KVA (includes power factor) instead of KW (does not include power factor). Then decide.
It would depend on how reactive your load is in your house. If you are running a bunch of motors all the time the a unity power factor should pull less power, If your power primarily is consumed in heating water and food, which are resistive loads, then your current is probably already in phase with the voltage. The device would have to be able to sense power factor and insert some capacitive reactance to bring the power factor back to unity. I don't see how a device that costs only 59 bucks could have that technology.
Now-a -days there are few truly resistive loads left in a house - like electric heat or stove. Inductive loads contain a coil of wire (motors, radios, various electronics). Some LED bulbs are actually slightly capacitive. Inductive loads
I found this review EXTREMELY helpful. The BBB scores for MiracleWatt has gone up since this review and is now at 2.7, I believe. I also see more positive comments on the BBB now.
I still don't trust it and do not want to spend the money, so I used the information in your review and searched on Amazon for "power reflector device" the first product that came up looks EXACTLY like MiracleWatt, is from China and you get 2 units for $11.99!
I don't mind trying it out for $11.99 so I'm buying the ones on Amazon. It's probably the same one MiracleWatt purchases and rebrands.Thank you!
