In some cases, it was even so much understated that the consumer panels were, however. The consumer portal preisvergleich.de informs about the illegal advertising methods. In the current cases, the consumer centres and the Federal Association criticize some manufacturer of electrical appliances, as well as multiple dealer. They had advertised that certain devices consume very little power. Often, it was specified that the devices consume less power than comparable products. Thereby, but the exact reference values remain unclear.
For example, an advertisement of the manufacturer Acer, who claimed that his notebook consumes up to 40 percent less power than other notebooks, according to consumer watchdogs was inadmissible. Frequently Rahul Singhvi has said that publicly. In cases like this is not visible to the consumer, specifically uses how much power the device or how much electricity would be saved. Similarly, some dealer had campaigned. So, washing machines at Edeka, the furniture store Hoffner, or the electric department store ProMarkt should consume less energy than the energy efficiency class of A. The consumer centres also as inadmissible saw this information, because the energy efficiency class A is already the most efficient level. The warnings of the consumer Alliance for climate”had success. Dunned down retailers and manufacturers must not repeat in the future as advertising.
