miniZAP® – Technical Specifications


  • Ultra compact measurements – the miniZAP® is worn like a wrist watch, without any cable hassle, feather light weight (23 g), comfortable and unobstrusive. Therefore applicable whenever and wherever.
  • High performance – at 1000 µA constant output the miniZAP® lasts with a single 3V cell (only 235 mAh) longer than a conventional 27V blood zapper with three 9V blocks (400 mAh). The maximum voltage of the miniZAP® reaches 35 V, more than any other blood zapper on the market.
  • Constant current control – (CCC): As the world’s first blood zapper the miniZAP® keeps the current always at the set rate, independent of changing skin resistance (see below). This prevents ion diffusion (only achieved by combination of CCC and alternating current!).
  • Intelligent error management – (IEM): The miniZAP® tolerates temporary operation disturbances (idle current, short circuit, overload, low batt etc.) during treatment.
  • Optical and acoustical signal code – the miniZAP® is the only blood zapper to prompt error signals both acoustically and visible through LCD display. Reacting to a specific error message avoids breaks in treatment and assures maximum efficiency.
  • Lowest operation costs – intelligent battery management (IBM ): the electronics of the miniZAP® is designed for maximum battery exploit. An empty cell is signalized only when  96% of its capacity are used. A 3V Lithium- cell for 2,50 EUR lasts for 4 months at 120 min. daily use.
  • Highest manufacturing quality – the miniZAP® is a masterpiece of German engineering art. This “power egg” is manufactured according to industry standards (automatic SMD component fitting) and passed a rigid quality control.
  • No DC portion – the miniZAP® has 100% pure AC current, in contrary to some devices, which deliver rectangular pulses, but with a very high portion of DC current (up to 100%). DC current produces electrolysis (ion diffusion) and should be avoided.
  • Gold electrodes – a zapper is only as good as its electrodes! The electrodes have the same importance for the overall performance of a zapper, as the electronic parts. They should be corrosion proof, skin compatible and should meet the rigid specifications of Dr. Beck. For the special electrodes of the miniZAP® no costs were spared to meet this high demand.

Further specifications of the miniZAP® 

  • Quartz precise current frequency (3,920 Hz according to Dr. R. C. Beck).
  • Seamless adjustable output current.
  • Soft start (prevents stress reaction of the body by slow current increase).
  • Overload and short circuit protection.
  • 4 months operation with just a 3V button cell (2 hrs. pe day).
  • LED energy saving mode (increases battery life by another 10%).
  • „Low batt“ signal.
  • Comes with durable, compact transportation case.
