I purchased a less expensive version of the belt that basically electrocutes your abs. I read a lot of bad reviews on it but decided to buy it anyways.

Ive been using it for about 2 months now, and I wanted to throw some information from my experiences with it out there in case anyone considered buying one.

Ok, so first off, these things are NOT meant to help anyone lose weight. If you're trying to get rid of a gut, this thing is going to be next to worthless for you. Also, if you don't follow the directions, you're asking for a heap of pain.

Since I bought this thing, Ive been using it daily, as directed, and I've noticed a lot of improvement in the definition of my abs. I highly recommend it as as supplement to training. You have to keep in mind that this might help definition, but its not going to make you grow a six-pack if you're not already at some significant level of fitness.

The only trouble I've had thus far is that the little plastic plate that holds the battery in comes loose a lot. I just tape over it and it works fine.

Oh, you're supposed to put a water-based lubrication on between the belt and your skin. My roommate didnt read the directions and tried to use it dry, and hurt herself... so yeah, be careful.
