A zapper is only as good as its electrodes
For the overall performance of a Beck Zapper, the electrodes
have at least the same importance as the zapper electronic circuit itself. Dr. Beck didn’t use standard electrodes, because their profile exceeds the area of the blood vessels.
According to Dr. Beck, the contact area of the zapper electrodes should be compatible to the width of the vessels (have
about 1/8 inch or 3 mm width) and not exceed a certain length (3 cm), because otherwise the dissipative currencts become too strong. (inefficient currenct, due to decreased focus).
Electrode gel is THE medium for assuring a good electric contact. It is absolutely skin neutral. Salt, which has also been used by Beck
in his Zapper prototypes, can irritate the skin and corrode the electrode surface very fast. You are always free to house the electrodes additionally in cotton, but we don’t recommend it, because of
leakage into tissue.
