Cheap pads !!
From where ? The ones Lloyds sell are ridiculously expensive and the unit only takes its own type rather than the standard type. Lloyds pads 2 for £5, standard type 12 for £5 !

Voted cold

Sorry but that's a ridiculous reason to vote cold - this takes Solphadeine pads not Lloyds - it's not a Lloyds machine!!

The link only shows the Lloyds own brand. Cannot see the Solphadeine on. Maybe I am missing something. Also can anyone advise if these are effective.

I voted it cold because the running costs are far too high. It really doesn't matter who make them.
My wife's got one, the local LLoyds have the pads in stock VERY seldom and (being none standard) they are almost impossible to get else where.

You can't vote something cold because your local lloyds is rubbish :roll: my local lloyds has loads of them.

Apologies for the link all - it's an offline deal, and definately not on the lloyds machine.

what does it feel like when it working on you? To me it seems like it will just make an inflamation of pain worse.

I got this last time it was on offer. I found it helped with my lower back pain - though it's difficult to be certain (you feel a bit better a couple hours later you can't be sure how much is down to the TENS, how much the medication, how much is other factors, of course).

Its attached like the ECGs etc. you see in hospital, and sends a tiny electrical pulse into the muscle, though skin contact. There are several different routines (different types of electrical pulse, in different patterns) and several different strengths (eight, if memory serves - it's a month or two since I used it last).

How best to describe how it feels?... On a medium setting it's like a cross between a vibrating massage and someone lightly flicking you with a fingernail. On a higher setting it might make you tense the muscles/flinch every few seconds - depending on the routine you've got it on.

I'm glad I got mine, and recommend it to people who regularly suffer muscular pain. It's certainly worth a punt at the price.
I agree with the above posters, though, that say the pads are ridiculously expensive.

Raspberrys - you asked how often the pads need changing. There's no easy answer - it depends! if you're using it once a day and you're careful to keep the pads clean and flat then they'll probably last a few weeks. No guarantees though! If you're not so careful or you use them more than once a day you'll maybe need to change them more frequently. I've not used mine in the last few weeks - so the pads are lasting nicely at the moment! ;)

I've got the Lloyds machine and I think they are standard pads. You can get them anywhere. However, it's very late now and I will double check tomorrow AND LEAVE A NESSAGE FOR SUPPLIERS. £9.99 is the normal price, though so I can't see a special offer.

My Lloyds replacement pads are 60x50mm with 2mm single plug and should be standard for all tens machines. You can buy them on ebay for £10 for 12 pairs inclusive postage. Unless the sulpadine has different connectors it should fit the same pads. If not, I would stay away from sulpadine.
#13
I have the Lloyds one of these, the pads can be wiped clean and depending on on how often you use the machine will depend on how long they last. If you gently wipe each pad after every use, place them back on the protective cover and keep in the sealed pouch they should be fine,

As far as effectiveness goes its often hard to decide if they are actually affecting the pain or the brain is distracted from it by the sensation, either way it works and is an alternative than taking dose after dose of painkillers, have to admit I prefer to us the tens when I can rather than take painkillers which affect the lining of the stomach

I got one the last time it was mentioned on here, its the Lloyds one and I find it extremely good, and as for the pads, don't know why you think the pads are non standard, I get mine off Ebay and they work great with it
#15
Would just like to add that it says on the packet that the pads are good for up to 200 uses . Also i have RSI in my shoulder and it is terrific for easing the pain there. Hope this is useful.

I don't personally use it but an old lady at my work place swears by it, keeps it strapped even at work and gives herself a little buzz when her back pain kicks in...even though we work at Lloyds, hers is an alternative brand but she does sing the machines praises in general.
