I purchased this rechargeable electronic foot file as an upgrade to the battery powered one I already owned. I figured it would be better because I wouldn’t have to keep purchasing batteries for it. Another reason I thought this would be an upgrade is because it works in both wet and dry conditions.
The first issue I encountered was that the file itself was much smaller than the previous one I owned. The texture was also different and didn’t seem as rough. It says this unit is supposed to work for 10 hours in just 30 minutes charging time but may be they got that the other way around. I charged it all night long. The next day I figured it should be powered up really well by this point. I used it for about 5-10 minutes and it was already beginning to loose power and was not spinning as fast. I only did one area of one foot and then I was not as effective. Back on the charger it went. The following day I tried to do my other foot and experienced the same issue. It’s really only good for using it for short periods of time. It is also very sensitive to pressure and really rough areas. You have to run it along your foot very lightly. It did remove some of the dry skin but not nearly as fast or effectively as my battery powered one. The wet feature is a nice option but I think I am going to stick with my old model because the battery life on this is pretty frustrating. I received this item at no cost in order to provide my honest and unbiased opinion.
