Cost $149
This device is priced similarly to those out on the market that target individuals, and for such a new and innovative addition to tDCS devices, it is certainly worth the price.

Ease of Use
The LIFTiD device is seamless to use. Individuals simply have to prepare a salt water solution with the accessories, dampen the sponges for the session, and wear the device for 20 minutes. With detailed instructions, the device can be effectively used by anyone. Unlike classic tDCS devices, there are no electrodes, other wiring, or readings that need to be taken care of, thus, reducing the work needed for the individual to do when starting a session. They heavily market their Super Simple Setup with their automatic 20-minute timer.

Features/Accessories provided
The LIFTiD has utilized the new and seamless headset/headband-style design that many modern tDCS devices are using nowadays. It is a lightweight and modern headband/headset that is deemed ‘lightweight’ and ‘fashionable’.

The company also provides an extensive manual that helps you set up, fit the band on the forehead, and has information on beginning a session, troubleshooting, and more. The starter kit includes the device, 6 sponges, a headband placement mirror, a charging cable, a plastic bottle and spoon, as well as a storage bag with user manual.
