What is the difference between E-Stim and Violet Wands?

E-Stim units operate in the low voltage, low current range, Violet wands are very high voltage and very low current. A Violet want is very visual, but it hard to use internally, and has some quite serious safety issues depending on the age of the unit. Most violet wand sets are antique collectors items and should be treated as such.

What is the difference between a E-Stim Series 1 and a TENS machine?

TENS machines are designed for pain relief, they are not designed for sexual stimulation or pleasure. They tend to be less powerful and have levels of control and modes more suited to medical therapy. - It is one of the reasons some have a treatment timer, that shuts everything off after 30 minutes of treatment - something you might not want just as things become interesting. TENS machines tend to have unusual connectors which make it hard to use different electrodes.

Can I use rechargeable batteries?

Yes and no, but generally no. A rechargeable battery normally does not have the same voltage output nor capacity as a normal alkaline PP3, thus giving a much reduced and inferior sensation, and much reduced play time. A simple answer is carry a spare, or if you have a 2B, use the power supply.

Can I use a Zinc Carbon battery?

No. A zinc carbon battery, normally marketed as a cheaper battery (10 for £1), doesn't have the capacity to drive a Now discontinued Series 1 let alone a 2B. Steer clear of them.

What is a pinwheel?

Pinwheels have been around for quite a while, since they were originally designed by It was originally designed by Robert Wartenberg to test nerve reactions on the skin. A small spiky wheel that is applied to the skin and producers a prickly sensation. With a normal pinwheel the only way to increase the sensation is to press harder - something we would like to avoid and you could end up piercing the skin and leaving marks or even allowing infection. However with an electrified pinwheel all you need to do is adjust the power levels and something magical will happen.

Can I run the control units from the mains?

It depends on the control unit, only the 2B is designed to offer mains power options. If you are planning to, ensure you are using a control unit that is designed for mains use, and follow the instructions.

In general a control unit designed for mains use, will have isolated outputs, and a double insulated, low voltage CE approved power supply.

We don't recommend you attempt to use any battery eliminator type of power supplies as these will not have the safety elements needed.

What is the difference between TENS and E-Stim?

Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is the use of electric current produced by a device to stimulate the nerves for therapeutic purposes.

TENS machines are designed for pain relief, they are not designed for sexual stimulation or pleasure. They tend to be less powerful and have levels of control and modes more suited to medical therapy than sexual pleasure or torment. - It is one of the reasons some have a treatment timer, that shuts everything off after 30 minutes of treatment - something you might not want just as things become interesting.

TENS machines tend to have unusual connectors which make it hard to use different electrodes.

What is the difference between E-Stim and EMS?

EMS units, or Electronic Muscle Stimulators, are electrical devices designed specifically to produce muscle contractions - they are not designed for sexual stimulation or pleasure and tend to be harsher in feel than a TENS or E-Stim unit.

Their controls are more suited to bodybuilding than sexual pleasure or torment.

What is the difference between BiPolar and Monopole electrodes?

E-Stim needs two points of contact to work (think batteries). We sometimes call this positive(+) and negative(-), but technically with E-Stim they are just two points of contact.

BiPolar electrodes have both points of contact in the same electrode, Monopole electrodes are just a single point of contact, so to get a monopole electrode to work, you need to use two at the same time (Sticky Pad and a single Conductive Rubber loop, ElectroWhisker and a Sticky pad.
