The Minus Ion Eco Power device is a sealed foil strip that contains ceramic pellets incorporating radioactive thorium. It is distributed by Only-One Co., Ltd. of Japan.  

It is intended to be placed in the air intake of an automobile to make the engine operate more efficiently and reduce starting problems associated with bad weather. The strips contain either 7, 14, or 21 pellets, depending on the size of the engine.

It is also claimed that the Eco Power strip helps the car run faster with a lighter touch on the accelerator.
