The Truth Behind The Power Balance Wristbands

At one time I believe that they have effects.... and  I would love to try it... 

But now ... I don't think so.
Power Balance claim: 
Power Balance is Performance Technology designed to work with your body’s natural energy field. Founded by athletes, Power Balance is a favorite among elite athletes for whom balance, strength and flexibility are important.
Power Balance is based on the idea of optimizing the body’s natural energy flow, similar to concepts behind many Eastern philosophies. The hologram in Power Balance is designed to resonate with and respond to the natural energy field of the body.
And the truth is that ... now you can claim for refund... because what they've claimed do not have any credible scientific evidence. 

So are they a bunch of cheater? robbing people money by claiming that some hologram logo could make you stronger? 

my opinion is that you can call that misleading, I believe this powerbalance wristbands still have some kind of effect to the user ... the effect that I'm referring to is the physiological effect... the power of mind. so maybe the wristband it self it's just a silicon rubber ... but they marketing sure made some people believe and eventually get stronger ...
