So, the (apparent) pranksters at pulled an early April fools joke on the Guardian, and Charlie fell for it too?

If their water heater is powered by electricity, and doesn't use a pump, then it's an electric heater, plain and simple.  The only reason for a water heater to use a (complicated and 84% efficient) microwave heating element instead of a (cheap, reliable, and 100% efficient) simple resistive heating element would be for obfuscation.  Either a joke or investor fraud.

Indeed, joke or investor fraud. I agree with Nathan.
