Section 1: The Review
After buying our first TENS machine, Hubby and I decided it was worth getting another one so that we did not have to share machines and pads.
Coincidently, we were contacted by Auvon and asked if we might be interested in doing a product review for their TENS machine if they sent us the device. Since we all ready wanted another one this seemed like the perfect opportunity for us not only to do a review for our site but to finally get a second machine.
So Full disclosure the Auvon TENS EMS Massager was sent to us in exchange for a review.
Please note that all opinions in this article are our own and do not reflect the views or opinions of Auvon. However, we do want to thank them for this opportunity.
As mentioned in the previous article, we did not have experience with other TENS machines so we had nothing we could compare to the device. Now we do!
A little background
For those who do not know, I suffer from chronic back pain due to a work injury over 16 years ago. Hubby suffers from chronic knee and back pain as well.
Over the counter drugs can only do so much and prescription drugs can be downright scary. This is a drugfree alternative.
With use of the TENS machine my back pain is being regularly massaged away. It is definitely a lot more manageable and it leaves me more flexible and relaxed after each session.
That is why it is such a pleasure to try out a new TENS device!
Product Introduction: Auvon TENS EMS Massager
The Auvon TENS EMS Massager is a machine that helps deliver pain relief through mild electrical pulses through the use of lead cables and sticky pads that adhere to the skin. The pulses “massage” points of your body. The pulses also help to interrupt the pain signals allowing for significant relief.

Who Is The Product For?
The Auvon TENS EMS Massager
4 channels machine is for anyone with pain, especially chronic pain.
If you suffer from chronic pain this device just might be for you. The electric pulses that are sent through the pads interrupt the pain signals in the part of the body that is treated. This relieves pain in that area.
What We Like About The Product
I love the manual as it is so helpful and full of information. The other device we reviewed did not have an extensive or comprehendible manual and it was up to the user to figure it out. This was a refreshing positive change.
I love the square pads as they cover more surface area while still being able to spot treat. It does come with large rectangle pads too.
A timer on the device can be set by pushing the “T” button.
Easy to use.
What We Don’t Like About The Product
I wish the buttons were in a different color. The device is black and so are the buttons. I have to put it directly in the light to actually read the symbols. Once I figured out what everything did it was much easier to use, but initial reading of the symbols was very difficult. The manual also points out where everything is just in case you have the same problem. Overall it’s a workable problem.
PROS and CONS
Has 4 channels instead of one or two. Can cover more areas at once. This is a total bonus!
Each side (A or B) can be set to different intensities.
Has great reviews on Amazon! With people eventually buying more than one.
Lead cables are long enough to reach the “hard to reach” places
The device is also an EMS machine.
Hard to read symbols on buttons.
The Auvon TENS EMS Massager alleviates pain and works the muscles.
Powerful and Compact. Can slip in to a purse or bag easily to be used at home, the office, or your ride home from work.
Has long lasting battery that comes fully charged.
Great price coming in at just under $50.00.
4 channels and 24 modes. Up to 8 pads at once.
Overall, this unit is a complete win! Perfect gift for your loved ones or even yourself!
We really enjoyed our new TENS machine!

Section 2: Personal Experience
Box came sealed in tight plastic wrap. There was also a seal on the opening tab.
First thing you see when you open the box is “extend your warranty” information
Next there is packaging cushion.
This device came in the mail quickly and is packaged nicely. I was impressed with the extra packaging cushion because that proves that Auvon cares about its products and that it arrives safely and not broken.
The device itself is the size of a medium cell phone. (I carry a large cell phone because I can see the numbers better so it is smaller than my cell phone!)
There are 4 ports at the top and two buttons on the right side of the device.
Underneath the device was a draw string bag and under that was a plastic thing (I currently have no idea what it is. Hopefully there is a manual), 2 large pads, 8 square pads, 4 lead wires, 1 USB cable, 1 USB wall adapter. And finally, the Manual!
According to the manual, the plastic thing I mentioned earlier is a pad holder which is cool. Not sure how it works yet but give me a minute.
When I do figure it out this will be a very handy tool. The other TENS machine we reviewed did not come with a pad holder and it can be difficult to manage those sticky pads between uses. SO, this feature has me a little excited.
I wade my way through the manual. It is full of information unlike the Belifu. It has information on who should not use the product, areas to avoid when using the TENS unit, what to do before use, how to use the device, where to place the pads for optimal results, and much more. Yes, I think I like this device already.
For a small manual it has all the information you need. It is all in English!
Because of my experience with another TENS machine, I was prepared for putting the wires together and which ports to use (although the manual does guide you through the setup).
The lead cables are long so you won’t have trouble reaching any spot on the body.
The manual recommends adding a couple drops of water to the pad before applying.
I used all 8 pads, All 4 channels. I used 4 pads for my back, 2 for my lower neck, and two for my shoulders.
20 min of heaven! Used the timer feature.
Played with the intensity levels and the different modes.
Don’t be afraid to play with the modes. Personally, I used a mode for working on legs on my back and it felt wonderful!
After the cycle, there were obvious signs of relaxed muscles in the back. Inflammation was reduced by more than half.
Did have a couple of muscle twitches in the shoulders directly after treatment but no side effects after that.
