Seems Legit (Manafont)

I just got my first order from Manafont, all happy.

Was browsing the site again, when I found this wonderful device:

Awesome Device

Simply plug in to your cigarette lighter, and in addition to saving 30% gas, and providing lower emissions, you also get more horsepower, improved acceleration, and (get this:) improved car audio!

Why are we not all fitting these magical devices to our vehicles? Smile

It makes me sad to think we live in a world where there are people who actually believe this nonsense, and that otherwise-good retailers prey on the gullible to make a few dollars.

(seriously, if you buy this you are an idiot!)

what if the cigarette lighters fuse is blown? will it magically fix that too?
so much easier than changing oil, air filters, spark plugs, making sure your tires are properly inflated
not to mention getting a freer flowing exhaust and a cold air intake. got about 6mpg better in my focus with a short ram intake. but thats for the birds now!

add one of these to your order, and your ready for the strip!

You mean it's not gonna work? Dang it! Can I cancel my order? Just kidding. Yes it's stupid and people are dumb enough to fall for it, although you'd have to be really dumb to fall for this one!  The package gives no explanation on how it works!

I’m getting one for the wife as she’s always running low on turn signal indicator fluid.

I don’t know anything about cars but, it’s just a big capacitor (with fuse and LED)?!

Chuckle!

No one, after lighting a lamp, puts it away in a cellar nor under a basket, but on the lampstand, so that those who enter may see the light.

Please remind her to change her muffler bearings at the same time as the blinker fluid.

Precisely. It may work exactly as advertised on behicles. Unfortunately, I’ve heard they are very difficult to come by these days. Plus, I’m not really all that small in frame, so I’m guessing I likely wouldn’t be comfortable in a behicle anyway…

A little true story. My cousin (a woman) told her husband that he needed to change her oil in her car. He said “ok I’ll get to it soon as I can”. A week went by and she told him she needed her oil changed again. He said, “yeah I got to do that soon”. Another two weeks went by and she told him again (frustrated) “I need my oil changed, that little red oil light is staying on all the time now.” Shocked
Some how the motor survived despite being 3 quarts low.

my brother in law bought a ford f350 gas job, i dunno, 4-5 years ago. my dad changed his oil for him about a month ago, and said could not have been more than a quart came out of it. my brother in law told him he has never changed the oil…. if you knew what he had for motorized items, you would feel the pain i feel for them… one of the many is an all original 78 t-top vette…

Seriously, I have one of these on my pushbike. I have now sold my road bike and trail bike as this amazing device has made these redundant. This is so good that tomorrow I’m putting the good wife up for auction on Ebay. I dont need anything else in life. Dont believe me, buy one and try it for yourself. Cheers guys.

Opening bid price? Buy It Now price? Can it cook? Clean? Do windows? Scrub toilets and floors? Does engine run good? Show pleasant enthusiasm when you mount it?

If your talking about the wife all the above but the new wonder invention leaves you wondering about life. I think in about 3 days it will make me redundant also. I reckon that I will be able to retire by then this thing is so good. I was going to try it on the lathe but its so amazing it doesn’t need one.

Dont you hate advertising and lies from MF about s__t like this. Worse still people will buy this and others will profit.

As silly as this thing is, it’s still not as silly as this wonderful gem from the 70’s.

Had a girlfriend that told me she needed to get her ‘carbonator’ tuned up.

She also looked at me as though I was crazy when I asked her if she had checked the water in her battery…she just absolutely wouldn’t believe me that car batteries could have water in them…lol.

F A Q

1. How does it work?
Neo Socket uses “Electrolysis Condenser” to support engines. Condensers (capacitors, in some countries) have an ability to store and release electricity, which support engines to tolerate the load fluctuation caused by road conditions, usage of other electronics, and other external events.
2. Does it have a fuse?
Yes.
3. Will it work in 24V?
No, Neo Socket is designed for 12V cigarette sockets only.
4. LED does not go off even after turning off the engine. Will the battery die?
This should be no problem since LED doesn’t consume much power to operate. However, if you won’t be driving for a long time, we recommend you to take it off of cigarette socket.
5. What are the differences between Neo Socket “ECO” and “Hi-Grade”?
The difference is capacity of the electrolysis condenser. Hi-Grade is designed to fit vehicles with engine displacement over 2000 cc. ECO is designed for smaller engine displacement vehicle.
6. Can i use Hi-Grade for smaller vehicle?
Yes and it will work better. Though Attaching ECO to larger vehicles may not give you a desired result.
7. Does Neo Socket work if i attach it to cigarette socket adapters?
Yes
8. What if i attach Neo Socket into multiple cigarette sockets? Will the effect double or triple?
By using multiple Neo Socket, total capacity of the condenser will increase, thus theoretically the effect increases. However, effect won’t double or triple.
9. Will it also work on the vehicles that run on diesel engines?
Yes.

Oh.. and the backside of the package says.. That you will also get better battery life and improved car audio..
What can I cay.. Looks legit to me.. :bigsmile: :bigsmile:

Be careful where you stick it! It is meant for a 12v socket :bigsmile:

High powered? . . . . . . Xml or Xpg? Wink

I imagine you would need pretty bad PWM buzz to get anywhere with a XML. :bigsmile:

It depends. :bigsmile: I'm pretty photosensitive. Sometimes even the XPE is too much (especially with high PWM!!) O.O and a little incandescent Maglite, well, it can be quite pleasant. For my eyes!! >.< :bigsmile:
