KVAR Power Factor Optimizer - Scam Review

The "KVAR Power Factor Optimizer" claims to reduce your electricity bill by using capacitors to alter the power factor of the electricity being consumed in your home. It further claims that an improved power factor will extend the life of electrical devices, help electrical motors run more efficiently, save light bulbs and eliminate static interference. But this is not correct for most home owners!
