#1: TechCare Massager Plus
This unit is the most comfortable and convenient TENS unit to use. Compared to other units, this model has a larger screen, smaller size that runs on a 20-hour rechargeable battery, and it is much easier to carry around. It offers 20 intensity levels so you can choose between strong or weak fine-tune sensation that you want. It also has separate adjustable settings for each lead that allows you to send more or less current to each contact point. The intensity control uses digital buttons rather than dials so you won’t accidentally start the current too high. The disadvantages are that it’s not easy to navigate around the settings, you can’t scroll back and forth with one button cycles through all six modes and the four levels within each, and the intensity also drops back to zero each time you start a new mode. Yet, it is still on the top of our list for the best TENS units you can buy!
