How long to use a pad and what to do after its done

Post by Thornz2000 » Fri Feb 14, 2020 5:20 pm

Been wondering a bit on how long to use one.
Now and then add some electro gel to it.

When they are used, toss or salvage the connector.

Buy the Chinese cheapies off eBay, 4cm x 4cm that come in packs of 20. They can be considered single-use and thrown out after every session.

No, never add lube or gel to TENS pads because it can make them LESS conductive. Just apply as is to clean, dry skin.

Only add gel if I used them a couple of times

Yeah, that is a conductive carbon fibre core.

Yep, that's right. You can tape it to anything conductive to make a DIY electrode. Maybe stainless steel objects in the kitchen, a spoon for example. With a little imagination you can come up with something good. Like this URL where Joanne has made a bipolar DIY female 'Clitrode': https://www.sexmachinereviews.co.uk/diy ... trode.html

You can eat them.


And yeah, I use the salvaged connectors to create tri-phase cables, or 1-2 way splitters to spread a particular current path over more pads/area.
