Default Another hoax

Hello

Look at the image, Neosocket, that's quite a hoax !!!

A guy did open it and there's only a diode into that device.

Bye

Anyone who bought one of those should have his driving licence revoked, on the grounds that he is obviously too stupid to be allowed on public roads.

A bit more than a diode, but not much more!

There will always be a diyer around here willing to mod it with Backgates, Caddock and Hexfrets.

Apparently the capacitor holds charge and releases it when heavy loads require it, relieving the alternator of some of it's load

Of course, car manufacturers have never heard of capacitors and, at least in Europe, are under great pressure from governments to increase fuel usage so would not use this technology. Once again, the small gadget makers are helping the common man fight back against big business, which seems to insist on building cars without capacitors and audio amps with capacitors!

Would this help my Class-D amp if I plug in in? Or would it be good for class A/B only?

It will increase the efficiency of your Class D amplifier to about 115%. Your electricity meter will run backwards whenever you listen to music.

Wow! I need three!

If I ran my hand cranked Victrola into an amp connected to a few of these, it could power the whole house.
