How long do the batteries last?

Obviously it depends on the use of the unit, but some of our test and demo units have had the same batteries in for 2 months - it depends on how often you use them. We estimate a standard 9V PP3 battery will last around 3-4 days with continuous use on the Now discontinued Series 1 and around 8 hours with the ABox™. If you are not planning to use the unit for a while then we suggest you remove the batteries to avoid damage. The 2B can also be fitted with a mains adaptor. All of our control units are supplied with batteries.


Are the electrodes compatable with all of your control boxes?

Yes. All of our accessories are compatible with all of our control boxes, and, with suitable adaptors the Now discontinued Series 1, Series 2, 2B, the ABox™ and the Remote can drive a wide range of electrodes produced by other manufacturers.


How safe is e-stim?

Like many manufacturers of adult items, we can only sell our units on the strict understanding that they are novelty items. However they have a number of features that ensure that they are as safe as they can be made, with built in current limiting, input over voltage protection and operation from batteries. E-Stim does have a number of safety considerations, mainly to ensure that no current passes through the heart or across the chest, especially if pacemakers or other medical devices are in use.

Contact points should be secure and if possibly lubricated, E-Stim could possibly cause burns at high levels with small contact areas.

This is the reason we suggest that piercing's are NOT used as a contact point. You should also NOT use any form of Electro Stimulation if you have a heart condition, suffer from Epilepsy or are pregnant.


What does it feel like?

Electroplay is a wonderful flexible range of sensations that can be varied from a mild to a more intense 'tingling' feeling. It is direct stimulation of the nerve ends much like a vibrator but since it operates directly on the nervous system it give a deeper, more intense feeling. All people are different so some people will find certain levels and settings to be more pleasurable.. the secret is to take your time and experiment, but above all be safe.


Will it leave marks?

Generally E-Stim with made for play dedicated units doesn't leave marks, unless you are using it for long periods of time, or at very high levels. But should you incur any adverse reactions, such as skin tenderness while using an Electro-Stimulation unit it is recommended that you discontinue its use. Electrical play with violetwands is known to cause marking.


Can I use E-Stim if I have a heart condition?

If you have a heart condition you should NOT use any kind of electro-therapy device unless recommended and guided by your medical practitioner.


Can I use e-stim across my nipples?

Despite what you might see on electro sex groups we strongly advise against using any E-Stim equipment across the nipples. The heart is a rather important piece of your body that runs on electrical signals ...Passing a current across the chest from any E-Stim equipment MAY disrupt its operation. To play safe stick to stimming below the waist (and remember hand to hand may pass across the chest.. a definite NO.NO.)

If you know exactly what you are doing it is possible to undertake safe electro nipple play, with specialised equipment such as the E-Stim Systems 2B and BiPolar EClips.


Can I use a condom on the electrodes?

No, as e-stim electrodes rely on contact with the body, a condom will provide an insulator, preventing the electrode from working. The best method to ensure protection from infection is to ensure that you have your own electrodes and you don't share with others. Ensure you clean the electrodes thoroughly both before and after use.


Can you clean the electrodes in the dishwasher?

Certain E-Stim Electrodes ,such as E-Stim Systems Premium electrodes can be cleaned with care in a dishwasher, although we suggest you ensure that no cleaning solution is left in any crevice. Other electrodes you would need to check with the manufacturer. Always ensure any electrode is completely dry before storage.
