After using this product for a few months there have been no issues. The build quality appears fairly good though I’ve heard others have had trouble with the power cord.
All of the electronics are in the wand itself so the unit consists of the wand and the power block and cable. The included gel is handy but won’t last long, especially in a professional setting.
For the price, this is a good unit. It’s easy to use, affordable and very portable.
