>- Well, last Friday I started to get cold. It was in it's infancy.
How long was it from the first symptom to the time that you started zapping? This could have some influence.
>- 1. They don't work at all
I have heard only a very few times that a zapper did not work. When this happens, I ask the customer to send it back so that we can check it out. Only once did find that the zapper was not working correctly. In all cases, we either sent the customer a replacement zapper or refunded their money. Except for one case, the customers who receive replacements kept them even though they were elegible for a refund. I am not sure about the policies of the company that supplied yours. It was only $10.00 after all. Contact them.
>- 2. I weigh 250 lbs and it doesn't have the current flow.
This might have some influence but although this particular zapper is weaker than many others, I would not expect it to be a significant problem.
>- 3. It is just not an effective zapper.
While I have previously made comments in this regard, it is well liked by many, especially for colds.
>- 4. It is just me and they won't work on my, but work for others.
I do not think that this is the case either. For some reason, the zapper does not always produce the desired results. It could be that the frequency was not at an optimum with the unit that you have. It could be that the battery was low or possible the output was bad.
I did look back over our surveys and noted the following.
Generally, our customers tell us that using footpads doubles the overall effectiveness. The footpads require a stronger zapper.
When asked how effective their zapper was in stopping colds, 40 percent of those without the footpads claimed that they got at least 75 percent improvement, while almost 65 percent of those who used footpads claimed 75 percent or better improvement. 76 percent of non footpad users reported better than 50 percent improvement and 94 percent of footpads users reported the same.
Also, the stronger the model they used, the better the results.
