The Brain Stimulator v3.0 tDCS device is our latest and most popular Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation device. In this version of our flagship product, we’ve completely redesigned The Brain Stimulator from the inside out.
Push Buttons & Low Battery Indicator
With elegant push buttons and 5 indicator LED’s, this device is a breeze to use. The “UP” and “DOWN” buttons are used to select between current levels, while the “OFF” button functions as an “instant-off” feature, allowing the user to immediately end a session. Additionally, we’ve added a Low Battery indicator LED, which alerts the user when the battery needs to be replaced. But don’t worry, this device will run for over 90 hours at the highest 2mA setting, so you won’t be doing much battery replacing.
Boost Voltage & Constant-Voltage
Just like our other tDCS devices, The Brain Stimulator v3.0 uses a standard 9-volt battery. But to improve efficiency, special voltage boosting technology has been implemented, allowing the device to operate internally at a full 12-volts (+/-0.5V). So regardless of the electrode position you’re using, you can be sure the device will produce accurate current. Additionally, we reprogrammed The Brain Stimulator to include a “constant-voltage” system so the device operates continuously at 12-volts, regardless of battery health. This means that, unlike other tDCS devices, you will receive the same level of effectiveness out of The Brain Stimulator v3.0 each and every time you use it!
Current Stepping & Built-In Timer
The Brain Stimulator v3.0 features intermediate current stepping in-between the four selectable current options. In other words, when you increase the stimulation current from 0.5mA to 1.0mA, the current output pauses momentarily at 0.75mA before reaching 1.0mA. This provides for smoother transitions and an incredibly comfortable tDCS experience. Additionally, you can put away that kitchen timer because we integrated a 30-minute session timer! This new feature gently lowers the output current and turns off the device once the time limit has been reached.
Advanced Safety Features
When it comes to tDCS, don’t settle for a device which doesn’t put your health and safety first. We believe user safety should be a top concern when designing a tDCS product. Therefore, we integrated some of the most advanced, industry leading safety technology into The Brain Stimulator v3.0:
After 30-minutes of use, the device will slowly ramp down the current and power off the device. This feature can be used as a session timer so you can “set-and-forget”
Over-Current Protection *
This feature protects the user from unsafe current levels by limiting the device from ever exceeding 2.25mA at any time. If the device detects an Over-Current issue, the device will immediately cut off current flow and the Low Battery LED will flash RED for 5 seconds. After 5 seconds, the device will shut down and lock for optimal user safety.
Over-Voltage Protection *
This feature protects the user by preventing the device from ever exceeding 13-volts at any time. If the device detects an Over-Voltage issue, the device will immediately cut off current flow, and the Low Battery LED will flash RED for 5 seconds. After 5 seconds, the device will shut down and lock for optimal user safety.
Reverse Battery Protection
Prevents the device from operating should the battery be installed incorrectly and thus potentially damaging the circuitry or producing incorrect results. The device will not power on should the battery be installed backwards.
*There have been zero reports of over-current or over-voltage occurring in any of the thousands of devices tested and in the field.
