I just got my V3 today, and so far I’m very happy with it. Caputron has excellent customer service, and delivery was quick.
Foc.us, the company that manufactures the V3, makes very good devices. However, their instruction manuals aren’t that great. Also, I really like the sotDCS program (for sleep) that’s on the GO Flow device. So I kinda wish that the V3 included sotDCS.
I had to watch a few YouTube videos to figure out how to access the menu on the V3 that would allow me to “customize” the preset programs (so I’m not limited to only the 5 preset programs provided).
To do so, all you have to do is click on any of the programs. Continue clicking until you get to “Start”. Then, move the joystick to the right until “Edit” appears. Click on it. You’ll then be asked “mode type”. Choose which mode you want (TDCS, tACS, tRNS, tPCS, or tRCS), then continue clicking to specify the sub-settings (mA, duration, frequency, ect).
Caputron might want to consider putting together some “tips” for the V3 (since the manual Foc.us provides leaves a lot to be desired).
Perhaps include some details on navigating the V3 and how to edit the individual programs (tips like: “make sure to set the red lead as the anode” and “generally, you should choose bipolar off” and “by the way, you can set a timer start so that the device starts the program when the timer goes off”).
The V3 is a great device…its well thought-out and it does what it claims to do! But if you want to customize things you’re kind of left to figure it out on your own. Which is unfortunate. Because otherwise it’s a great device!
Again Caputron gets “five out of five stars” for having a great website and excellent customer service!
