Have any of you seen or used something like this?  Do you know if it works
as advertised. I could not find it on snopes.

*How Does the Power-Save Unit Work?*
> The Power-Save reduces the amount of power drawn from the utility by
> storing (in its capacitors) otherwise lost electricity (watts) caused by the
> inductive motors in your home. (Some examples of inductive motors are Air
> Conditioning units, refrigerators, freezers, washers, dryers, dishwashers,
> pool pumps, vacuum cleaners, furnace blower motors, fans etc.) The
> technology applied by the Power-Save 1200™ Unit supplies that stored
> electricity back to your inductive loads, thus causing you to decrease your
> demand from the utility. If you decrease your demand from the utility, your
> meter slows down, and you use less electricity. The thought is, you've
> already paid for that electricity, why pay for it and waste it when you can
> pay for it, store it, and reuse it again. This whole process is called power
> factor optimization.
