Electrodes DIY

From CES Wiki

Electrodes

These are some home brewed electrodes I have experimented with. Each has various advantages and disadvantages. These are designed to be cheap and easily replacable if need be using common parts. I normally put the electrode metal straight against my skin since I use low voltage and current and seem to have an immunity to electrolysis burns. If this is not you, use a small folded tissue and some salt water for the electrode pads.

WARNING: Avoid the use of dangerous heavy metals (such as lead) close to or against the skin. I have seen some electrode designs that involved soldering lead to the back of a dime. In this case do NOT use lead solder but a lead free/silver type solder instead.
