Let’s get straight to it. You’re probably here because you’re on the verge of buying your first tDCS Device and are unsure what to buy. You have probably heard of the Omni Brain Stimulator, it’s one of 4 popular tDCS devices on the market and it remains by far the most affordable and provides the best value for money. I’ve been using tDCS for speed reading for many years now and remain a big fan of the Omni Simulator in fact the Spreeder community has been using it for years to enhance their speed reading with great success.
So why do I recommend the Omni Stimulator, what makes it the best? Here are the reasons I went with Omni after trying a much more expensive unit that broke on me.
Don’t be ripped off like I was. When buying anything you always want the best value for money. In 2014 I paid approximately $250 for my first tDCS device which shall go unnamed as I don’t wish to disparage any other products directly. That device lasted 7-8 months and broke. In 2019 the competition has kicked in lowering the price of many products however there remains a huge disparity in the market on price/value ratio. It becomes very clear that at $150-250 plus shipping is pretty steep price to pay when the Omni Stimulator is offering their item for $99.00 with free global shipping.
Why Warranty Matters
It’s not just peace of mind but if you find yourself with a broken tDCS device it’s nice to know it will be replaced. As from my experience with my first tDCS Device breaking I was left out of pocket and unless you have a background in electronics you’re out of luck trying to fix it. If any company has a large money-back guarantee they are putting the customer first and I learnt my lesson there. No matter how rugged you’re led to believe the item is go for the one with the larger warranty with any electronics. The Omni Stimulator has offered a free 5 year warranty since it’s inception. An example of their generosity has been shown with a Spreeder user contacting us about losing their device and how they couldn’t afford another and Harry from Omni sent one out free of charge.
Everything you need
It comes with everything you need to get started. It’s a complete tDCS kit. Get the device wet the sponges with saline and you’re ready to go and it works without hassle. Though I had used tDCS previously I did have to buy a couple of electrodes which just added to the cost.
Another example of Harry and the Omni Stimulator team putting their customers first is their money back guarantee which is a full year. In all honesty you probably won’t need to use any guarantee on any of the big 4 devices but it’s nice to know you can return it if you wish. Warranty is really what is going to matter to you and their warranty is by far the largest.
Harry and the team over at Omni Stimulator has always been very helpful in answering all our questions and has become a friend of the Spreeder community. We asked Harry for a quick interview about the Omni Stimulator and tDCS in general which he has agreed to and will be posted soon.
All tDCS up to 2mA is safe. However there are images of people having slight burns by tDCS electrodes. It’s not possible to do this with the electrodes they are using. What they have done is made it so the width of the sponge is longer than the clip attaching it to the item.
It’s easy to use, works fantastic and has everything you need at the best price. This glowing review is reflective of our experience here at Spreeder.
