"You can even use SLENDERTONE products while you work out!" - NOT!
There is no mention of the acceptable intensity of that workout.
Before purchasing my Flex, I downloaded the directions and read them. It said not to get it wet. I called technical support to ask about wearing the belt while exercising and sweating. I was told that, that is what it is designed for.
My problem: The center gel pad grows MOLD.
I wear my belt, setting 80-99, while exercising on my Orbitrek for 30 minutes. I lay my Flex belt out flat, gel pads up, on my weight bench, place the plastic covers on the gel pads and leave it until next day. In just a couple of weeks the center pad starts growing MOLD on it. The outer pads are still fine. Slendertone pads are pretty expensive to be going through center pads so rapidly. You can only buy the gel pads in a set so I wind up with extra/wasted outer pads.
I contacted Slendertone - info@slendertone.*** - to inquire about the gel pads growing MOLD and they told me that they were unaware of anyone else having this problem.
Is anyone else's Slendertone Flex center gel pad growing MOLD?
The Second problem I've experienced is the display on the control unit loosing segments. Banner Therapy, the company I bought it from replaced the first one under warranty. Slendertone sent me a second replacement control unit. I'm on my third one now.
Anyone loosing segments on their display unit?
Other than the two problems - MOLD growing on center pad and display malfunction - I have been very satisfied with my Flex ab belt. It firms and tightens my abs while doing my aerobic exercise. I want to get much more use from this product, if the MOLD problem could be remedied.
Summary: Slendertone Flex gel pads grow MOLD !
