It’s a nice professionally packaged kit and arrived quickly. Build quality seems good and display is clear and easy to read. The ear check thing can sometimes be irksome and there is not a lot of paste included. But once you get past the setup the 15 minute sessions feel noticably relaxing. Doesn’t include a wall charger, only the USB charging cable.
Hated it. Sent back.
I have a lot of interest in vagus nerve stimulation. I’ve read lots about it so they didn’t need to sell me on the benefits. The product is pretty good, but it’s by no means perfect. Here’s my take on pro and cons Pros – Price – you can’t beat this. Look around. – Quality for the price outstanding. I’ve bought another vagus stimulator for over twice the price and I would say this is a better quality build. No kidding! – Sleek and small — it’s nicely designed. Really compact, with a nice neat compact case. – Easy interface – very easy to follow the instructions and get started. – USB charging, which can be done with any standard charger. Cons – Single joystick – You kinda get used to it, but I would have preferred more buttons for settings. I guess it’s the price you pay for a small device. But for example it means you have to start it before you decide on the intensity level. It remembers the level from the previous session, which is good, but on some days I feel it’s too high and then I’m having to lower it mid-session. I’m glad it ramps up gradually, so you have time to adjust! – Only 15mins per session — ok, I get that this is their recommended amount, but I use it more and to do this, I have to start another session. Alright, not the end of the world, but still.. – Battery life is not great if like me, you are using it for multiple sessions a day. You get a couple of days and then you have to recharge. Overall though, it’s well worth the money. I just hope it lasts.
So glad I went for this – after looking around for devices, I thought I’d chance this one. For such a compact machine it is really strong. I love that you can charge it via usb and don’t have to keep buying batteries and there is no separate charger. I just plug it into my laptop most of the time. It comes with a neat pouch to hold everything – I am happy to recommend this product.
Beautifully neat looking little device. Figured out how to use it in five minutes. l used it twice and actually managed to fall asleep quickly for the first time in weeks. So far so good and hopefully this will give me some improvement finally!! l hope this review helps someone….good luck
Great product! Great price! Very happy with it! I’ve been reading about vagus nerve stimulation for a while, but there were never any affordable products. This is the first affordable one I’ve found. Works great! Thanks! The paste tubs are a bit small though! Word of advice to other users, vagus nerve health is about a whole way of life, don’t expect miracles, and don’t rely on just a stimulator. It helps but there are lots of other things about your life you should change. Educate yourself. Knowledge is ancient and eternal. The science is just catching up!
You would have got five stars if it buzzed when the 15mins was over. I usually close my eyes and lie down and listen to some meditation music. Sometimes I drift off and don’t realise when the session is over. At the moment I’m setting a timer on my phone, but would be better if I didn’t have to.
