    Not sure about this one.Without ever using this product

    But the use of Capacitors to smooth things out is common

    Pretty much the science behind those tiny vehicle starters

    This garbage really ticks me off!

    Very poor grammar (first sign of garbage) aside anything that claims all this is full of crap. It's a shame that people like this exist, bottom feeders preying on unsuspecting people that don't know any better.

    https://japansparkplugs.com/boutiqu...m,voltage to the coil (16V instead of 12/14V).

    - Boost & stabilize coil (+16v stable instead of 12v variable/unstable).
    - Optimize your ignition.
    - Increase your spark plugs impact.
    - Strongly reduce misfire, especially on turbo engine (high psi).
    - Get more HP & torque.
    - Less consumption and unburned fuel.​

    https://www.hqlights.com/en/bellon-voltage-stabilizer.html
    Bellon Voltage Stabilizer
    Bellon Voltage Stabilizer / Gas Saver is the Cheapest Way to save gas money. •Increase torque and horsepower. •Improve fuel efficiency. Save 10%~25% more gas. •Improve engine response. Quicker Engine Start​

    "Strongly reduce misfire" - How many misfires do you get. Your ECU must be throwing codes right and left? The Audi I had would go in to limp mode on misfires.
    Increase torque and horsepower - Toyota should by this company and all their patents . . . Oh wait the don't have any, because it's fake!
    Save 10%~25% more gas - California would mandate this as a retrofit for all cars and bicycles.

    I supposed it's a cure for COVID-19 too? WTF???

    If this really worked they would have data to back it up. Dyno plots, mass data set of tests in controlled conditions.

    It the same thing as the "earthing kits" there were going around 15 years ago. garbage garbage garbage.

    Did I mention it's garbage?
