What is a EMS machine?
While the devices may look similar, TENS and EMS are not the same.
A TENS unit stimulates the nerves, it is intended – and administered – to reduce both chronic and acute pain.
Whereas, an EMS machine makes the muscles contract. Common uses for EMS include – recovery, training, rehabilitation, prevention, and cosmetic appearance.

Rechargeable Vs. Battery
This is down to personal preference and available spend. A rechargeable machine is likely to command a greater initial investment but it’ll probably cost less to run over time. You don’t have ongoing replacement battery costs. Nor do you have to fiddle about with the machine and swap the old set for new ones.
However, there are some counter-arguments to consider:
Firstly, you need to remember to charge the device. Unlike a standard battery powered machine, you can’t just swap it when it’s out of juice.
And although some units can be used while they’re being charged, you’re going to have to be close to the power outlet to do that.
Not only is that inconvenient, it’s rather messy – and when you factor in the machine’s lead wires (with the pads on) – you’re going to have cables all over the place.
With a device that takes standard batteries, so long as you keep spares – you’re going to be able to use it – pretty much straight away.
Another scenario to think about is if you’re going to be taking your unit away with you. This may be on business trips, vacation, days out, etc.
You may not always be in a situation where you can charge the machine. If your device takes standard batteries, you can take spares with you. And if you’re ever in the position where you run out of batteries, the likelihood is you’ll be able to get hold of some.
Similarly to the last point, if you were away from home and forgot to pack your charger, you could be in a predicament. Whereas, if you forgot to take batteries it would be something you could deal with.
Flipping this back round again for a final point, and it’s a pro rechargeable one. Imagine you were to get home from work, as an example, exhausted and ready for a TENS session.
If you had a battery powered device and realized you had run out of replacements, you’d have to go out and fetch some. Otherwise, you wouldn’t be able to use your machine. With a rechargeable one, you’d simply put it on charge for a little while and then be able to use it.
