This unit is similar to one I had years ago that cost me $400 from a Chiropractor. Guess he made a handsome profit with that one. But it was a lot of years ago and they were probably much more costly back then. I am very pleased with the various modes and settings on this unit and the fact that if clips on and you can go anywhere with it on. The price was excellent from this site vs other sites with a much higher price for the same unit. I highly recommend it.

I had gone to a doctor for my back pain and though it helped a little, this machine did the trick. I finally got a great night's sleep because I was pain free. I have saved hundreds of dollars because of this unit.
How did the image on site compare with the actual product? It lacked the adapter which was shown in the picture.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. This is a great product for the price. I was shown one at a fair which was several hundred dollars and worked the same as this one.
Great product, I only have two complaints. I would have liked to have a more detailed instruction manual that includes suggested electrode placements and modes for different areas of the body. The other complaint is it would be nice if the A/C adapter was included. When I first got this tens unit I was using several times a day for an hour at a time. I went through one battery a day. That would get to be very expensive if you had to keep it up.
How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Good, except the image on the site included a AC adapter, and there was not one included in in my package.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate, the written description did not include the AC adapter which is why I did not complain.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Great so far.
Great little product, saves a trip to physical therapy at a medical center I go to (military) taht is a 45 minute drive and definitely helps with pain. The product shows the AC adaptor in the picture but was not included. I didnt read all the product details and see the ac adaptor sold seperately blurb at the bottom until after I bought the unit and it arrived without the adaptor. The adaptor shown in the pic is why I immediately chose this product over a few others because of the price with AC power... I don't regret the purchase of this particular unit, however I am disappointed that the picture was inaccurate. My fault, should have read teh details first I guess....
Great product for the price, love the different settings. My son seen similar units being sold at the mall for about $400.00, he said this is the same thing just not the "high tech look" as the ones in the mall.
I was recently diagnosed with arthritic degeneration of my lumbar (lower back). My doctor sent me to Physical Therapy where they worked on increasing flexibility in my back, and strengthening abdominal and lumbar muscles. Each session ended with a TENS treatment. I bought this TENS unit after reading the specifications and prices on all available units. Overstock had the best price, a nominal amount for this TENS unit. I didn't expect much, but it turned out to be every bit as good as at the Therapist. The instruction book is not very sophisticated. I Googled about how to adjust the settings on a TENS device. There were hundreds of hits with manuals showing where to place the electrodes, and what to set the settings at. Now, I use it all over my body for aches and pains, and it is so soothing I don't want to stop. Battery life is great! I have used it daily for a month and no sign of needing to replace battery.The unit is very powerful with its 9 volt battery, way more powerful than you need. This unit goes to an intensity of 10, and 3 is equal to what the Therapist was using. An intensity setting of 3 is very comfortable for me. And, I read all the reviews about the electrodes needing replacement frequently. Not on the one I got. I bought an extra package, but the original ones are still perfect after a couple of months of use. It's a great item, it couldn't be any better. And for a bonus, Overstock's price is unbelievably low. A great deal!!! I'd buy this one again in a heartbeat if I needed one.
This TENS unit is a great purchase. It is portable, has a case, and it is easy to use. Invest in 9v batteries though, because it doesn't come with an a/c adapter. And order a set of electrode pads while you are at it. While the ones that come with it are good for several uses, they don't last forever.
I am so glad I purchased this unit...just make sure you are stocked in batteries and electrode pads!

After borrowing a TENS unit from a friend I decided to look into purchasing one. There are so many choices - but this is perfect for the price! It has several different settings and is more sophisticated than my friends, and she spent $80.

We bought this at the same time as one of the Intensity Combo Select units, because I wasn't sure if TENS or IF would work better for my wife. She started out using this TENS unit, and one of the nice things about this particular device is that it's very easy to use. Fairly simple controls. She said that it was helpful with her pain, but as most sites say, with TENS, it helps with pain, but the relief doesn't continue after the unit is not used, so we've started using the IF in the Combo Select device more. But, if TENS is what you are looking for, this seems like a fairly priced device that works well and is pretty good quality.

Will the unit work with the battery only? Or does the Adapter need purchased additionally?
Thanks! Jeaniethepersonalshopper on Dec 17, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hi Jeanie, this unit can operate on a 9V battery. It can also be operated with an A/C adaptor. This unit does not require any specific type of battery besides it just being a 9V which can be purchased locally at any convenience store. We hope this helps. Thanks for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Dec 18, 2013
