this is normal pricing for average tens units. I would not recommend this one due to the size of the unit and the fact that it has the pigtail connectors (vs snap on) as well as the fact that this unit runs on standard batteries vs rechargeable internal batteries

this one only has 3 modes as well, most have between 16 and 20.

There are much, much better options available on amazon for the same price or slightly more. This unit is quite frankly not worth it at all.

I personally own 4 tens units at home. The latest one I bought cost me $20, has snap on connectors, 16 modes, 10 levels of intensity, has an internal rechargeable battery and fits in the palm of your hand.
There have been tens units posted here on SD before as well.

I also agree with Kiwi.

I have 2 units similar to the OP's purchased years ago (also found on SD) for $21 and $16. My idea for 2 was to average down the cost :-) and also double them up. I found that if you use both sides (4 pads) on 1 unit, the power is weaker. Since I use this almost exclusively on my back, I need the max power... So the idea of 2 units. But I guess I never got around to doing so. I use those now for relieving and faster recovery of sore muscle.

I find the battery life on these units (the older bigger one that uses AAA posted by the OP and the newer small ones posted by bluekiwi) to be very similar, but having a rechargable small one is better for travel, as I use the same USB charger for my phone, tablet, camera, and the TENS unit. Having one of these run on your lower back during a long flight really help keep the muscles loose.

The power level of the smaller TENS unit and the OP one seems to be almost the same. I don't really care/need the different "programs", but rather like the idea of tuning my own frequency/duration/power level. One of the most important feature I look for is the operating duration. The older units I have would not run for longer than 15 minutes before auto-stop, which is annoying and manual reset/restart. Look for the ability to go 60 minutes...
