Does iReliev Electrode Pads Made with Gel Contain Salicylate?
iReliev gel pads do not contain salicylate which is necessary for many people seeking to follow protocol consistent with Guaifenesin protocol. Considered by many as an unapproved treatment for fibromyalgia suggested in the 1990s by R. Paul St. Amand. The protocol involves three parts: titrating the guaifenesin dosage, avoiding salicylates, and following a low-carbohydrate diet if the patient is hypoglycemic.
How many electrode pads come with model ET-1313?
A quantity of 4, 2″ x 2″ electrode pads come with the system.
Why won't the intensity increase?
Please make sure that the following steps are completed:
Step #1) Make sure lead(s) is fully inserted in respective CH1 or CH2 port on device.
Step #2) Make sure electrode pads are fully inserted into pin connectors on lead wire(s) .
Step #3) Make sure 2 or 4 electrodes ( 2 small or 1 XL pad per channel) are placed on the body. System can only function if conductive resistance is sensed by machine (all steps above) otherwise auto default to intensity level “0” is initiated. It's a safety feature.

Can I use iReliev in conjunction with topical pain rubs or gels?
Topical pain creams, rubs or gels can be used before or after the use of iReliev TENS and/or EMS. Please note, topical pain creams should not be applied to the site of pain immediately before applying the iReliev electrode pads. Applying topical pain rubs in combination with the iReliev electrode pads may damage the electrode pads and prevent you from experiencing optimal electrotherapy results. However, many of our customers use gel for optimal electrical dispersion. It can increase conductivity, creating a more comfortable experience while hydrating the moisture of the gel on the original pads.
How does iReliev TENS help reduce pain?
iReliev works by producing electrical pulses that block the body’s pain signal to your brain, thus the pain symptoms you feel. TENS has also been shown in clinical studies to encourage the body to release its own natural pain relieving endorphins, sometimes referred to as the body's “feel good chemical.”

We do have customers however, who say that they use rechargeable batteries with no problems.

To lock: Press ON/+ and OFF/- at the same time. To release, do the same thing.
What is the power output of this product?
80mA output or 25 levels of intensity. 80mA is equivalent to many portable prescription models. It is very strong I assure you.
