    I work out frequently at my home gym, and I also do a lot of yard work almost every day. My muscles are usually tight and sore despite properly stretching before and after each work. When I saw the Hyperice Hypervolt Vibration massager, I was excited to try it out to help alleviate my sore muscles. My friend who frequently visits a chiropractor informed me that they use a similar device for her visits. After a week of using it, I was not disappointed. The Hypervolt is very easy to setup and use. I attached the rechargeable battery to the unit, which came fully charged. Choose the appropriate head and put it on the massager. Note that while pushing the head inside the device, make sure to turn it 1/4 of the way to insert it all the way inside. To change heads, simple pull and turn 1/4 of the way the attached head and insert another head. The only head that does not require turning while pushing is the fork. It includes four different attachment/tips, and each is designed to massage the muscles differently. The flat head attachment is my favorite, and I use it on my denser muscles like the quad and pecks. The softest accessory is the ball head. The bullet head is suitable for any tissue because of it used for trigger points or target a specific area. The fork head attachment is like having two bullet heads side by side, and it is also good for any muscle. The more you use the messaging device, the more you will know your body, and you will figure out what is most effective, what speed and which head to use for each muscle. The control button adjusts the intensity of the message into three variable speed levels. The first level is not highly aggressive, which is good for beginners, smaller muscles or upper body muscles. For the denser muscles like the legs or calf, the second level is more appropriate. The third level is more aggressive which is good for the more bigger muscles (glutes, hips, quads) or to do the most massaging. For the first timers, I recommend beginners to start at the lowest speed level and don't apply a lot of pressure. After you get used to the massager, start adding more pressure and going at a higher as needed, without overdoing it. This massager feels like a premium device, and it is powerful enough without generating a lot of noise. Fully charged, the battery lasts a long time. The carton box is sturdy, and it has a magnetized lid that easily opens and closes. The device will outlive box, and I recommend the manufacturer that future products to include a carry-on case or bag. Overall, I am highly satisfied with the Hypervolt, and I use it often You will glad to have one of this after a long work day or after an intense workout.

    This Massager is Magic!

    The Hyperice Hypervolt is a cordless vibration massage device, used in Vibration Therapy. If you've ever visited a Physical Therapist, you've probably seen the Hypervolt or Theragun. It works like a mini jack-hammer to help loosen tight muscles and reduce soreness from training sessions. The Hypervolt is cordless, compact and portable. When you first turn it on, what jumps out is the lack of noise. If you have been around other devices such as the Theragun, which is very NOISY this is like night and day. One feature I really like is that it has 4 LED lights that indicate the amount of charge in the battery, which is rated for about 3 hours of continuous use on a full charge. The Hypervolt also has 3 different speed settings, allowing you to adjust the intensity of the massage. It's also light, so you can use it with 1 hand, but has enough mass that you don't feel like you have to push into it to penetrate down to the muscle. So does it work? In a word, yes. Ironically, I broke my hip in a mtb accident almost 2 months ago, and for the first time in my life I just started Physical Therapy. My Physical Therapist uses the Hyperice on during our sessions. He also has the Theragun but prefers the Hyperice as he can converse with his patients while using it! But it's not just my saying I feel good after using it. There are also studies which show the many benefits of Vibration Therapy. In a study called “To Compare the Effect of Vibration Therapy and Massage in Prevention of Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS)” the result was that muscle soreness was reported to be significantly less for the experimental (vibration and massage) group as compared to the control group at 24, 48, and 72 hours of post-exercise. According to an article on Healthline, “When the vibrations are transmitted to your body, they cause your muscles to contract and relax. Certain types of vibrations may also cause your body to produce more osteoblasts. These are cells that produce bone.” Benefits of vibration therapy include an increase in bone density, reduced back pain, improved blood circulation, increase in muscle mass, and more. Even if you're not an elite athlete, if any of those benefits sound good to you, then I recommend that you check out the Hypervice Hypervolt.

    More "percussive" than "vibrating" massage.

    I've tried a LOT of different massage tools, as well as an abundance of stretches and a few painkillers, to try and sort out the mess that is my neck and shoulders. And unfortunately I've never really had the greatest luck with any of them. That said, I'd also never tried one that looked like a piece of construction equipment, so I figured maybe adding some extra horsepower would do the trick. You can imagine my astonishment when this thing's staccato pummeling of the back of the neck introduced me to a brand new sensation: a complete lack of muscle pain! Now, before you immediately rush out and buy one, it didn't last. After doing a little more research to see what had actually just happened, I discovered that this thing basically works on a principle called "gate theory." Basically, it deliberately overstimulates the nerves in the area you apply it to, making you numb to pain. The idea being that while you can't feel the pain, it will be easier for your muscles to relax. After using it fairly regularly for about a week, I have to say that there might indeed be something to this theory. My neck is certainly not fixed, but being able to have an hour or two of relief every day does seem to be making it a bit better. And it's very effective for the primary use it was made for - namely keeping your muscles from cramping up after intense activity. I've been trying my best to prepare for a hike, and I have to say my legs have never felt better for using this a bit before and after each workout. That said, there are definitely a few things that keep it from earning a full five stars. To start - this thing comes with an abundance of different attachments and tips, plus more than enough power to shake your fillings loose. It looks like something you should have a license to use in most states. And yet, there's virtually no instructions on the proper use (or what the various attachments are for) included with the device. There are a few youtube videos (which I had to find myself) which will get you started, but some help from the manufacturer would have been nice. Another thing you'll want to keep in mind is that while it advertises it's great for hikers and the like, the thing is frankly far too big and heavy for me to consider throwing in a pack. Maybe this is wishful thinking, but it really seems more like a device you keep at home than anything else. I personally don't find these to be dealbreakers, but it's something to keep in mind if you're thinking about buying one. It's definitely not the kind of product I'd recommend to just anyone, in fact I know more than one person who would probably seriously hurt themselves with it, but if you're the kind of person who frequently deals with muscle soreness due to working out or engaging in other outdoor adventures it might be worth giving this thing a look. Also, as a word of warning: I'm only half kidding about this thing shaking your fillings loose. Don't do what I did - start somewhere further away from your head until you know what kind of kick it has.

    A great option for pain management

    For nearly 20 years, I have suffered from severe leg pain due to an old injury. I tend to survive through it with the help of medication and pressure massages. I’m always on the lookout for personal devices that might be able to help me manage my pain without having to use medication. I have one such device that is a wearable item, but I can’t wear it 24/7. So, I typically have to supplement with massages — either from professional masseuses or from family members. Personal massage devices like shiatsu massagers just don’t do enough for me so when I heard about the Hypervolt Vibration Massage Device, I was thrilled beyond belief because I felt as though having a device like that at home would save me time and money going to masseuses. The Hypervolt massager is rechargeable and has a long run-time (approximately 2 hours total). Most of the time, I was running it in 5-minute increments, but there were a few times that I had longer massage sessions. The massager comes with multiple attachments. I tested them all out and found that they had very different uses. The fork tool seemed to work best on my leg and back, but it caused too much of a ‘tickle’ effect when used on my foot. The round ball was the best all-around attachment and could be used anywhere effectively. The bullet was perfect for targeting problem areas and was great for ‘hot spots’. This was particularly effective for me on my leg where I have the most issues. The flat head attachment was also great on my back and foot. I had some wonderful success with the Hypervolt. It relieved my pain — even when it was at its peak and I honestly don’t know how I’ve lived this long without it. It’s the perfect addition to my home pain management system. It is expensive, but when you consider that an hour-long massage typically costs between $50-60, the Hypervolt pays for itself in a very short period of time. I can use the Hypervolt on myself if no one else is around, or have someone help me with it. My family members that help me with it - particularly on my back where I can’t reach - say that it’s much easier than doing the massaging with their hands. While the Hypervolt is an investment, it’s a wise investment because of the benefits of it.

    Compact, Powerful, Versatile

    Pros: * Compact size. * Attachments for use on almost any body part. * Very Powerful. * Long battery life. Cons: * A bit heavy to hold for extended use. * Low power setting is still a bit much. * Two power buttons; main switch and power/level button. * AC adapter is a bit inconvenient. This cordless massager looks a bit intimidating but works really well. It has four (4) interchangeable tips to address soreness on nearly any body part. The long-life rechargeable battery means you don’t have to take frequent breaks just to charge it back up, but it is a tad on the heavy side to hold in place. It’s also not very loud for the power it packs. When it is time to recharge, the provided “rug bump” type adapter works well enough, but I prefer one-piece chargers to this type that have two cords and a box in-between. There is a nice light ring around the battery to let you know when it’s charging and a multi-segment LED on the back of the unit, too. This unit has 3 power level. The lowest is still very powerful, so be careful until you get used to it. One of my few dislikes is that there are two power buttons. The first is a slider on/off switch on the base of the battery (see photo) that is essentially the “main” power button to enable the unit to work. The second is a power button on the back that you tap to turn on to low, then tap again to medium, again to high and lastly again to turn off. It would be nice if the main button were removed and that tappable power button was reworked to tap and hold to power on/off and when on, tap to cycle between the three power levels; but this is just a nit. Overall, this is a great massager for athletes and others with sore muscles just about anywhere on their body. It’s powerful, not terribly loud, has great battery life and is mostly comfortable to hold for a while.

    Competitive Athlete and Training MUST HAVE!

    This device is a must have for anyone participating in competitive or professional sports. There is a learning curve with this but you can do it. In the hands of a seasoned vet (or someone who learned on themselves), this will work wonders! You can accidentally learn how to use this on yourself by finding those tight spots and instantly finding a nice ahhhhhh or ooooooh of relaxation. It is great for pre and post workouts to loosen up or warm up your muscles. After using this, my legs felt revitalized after my half marathon training sessions. I just can't say enough about this device's healing properties. The unboxing experience was premium! Everything was well packaged and presented as a showpiece. This box is built as if it should be the place where you store the Hypervolt when not in use. Everything stays put in a nice dense foam and nothing shifts around the box. In the box are 4 interchangeable heads, the Hypervolt, the power charger, warranty card, and "instructions". I must say I am disappointed in the literature provided. Instead of providing information on what each tip is and what it's used for, they provided a product/sales brochure and a 1pg quick start guide. This device is something you can sell more of if you educate the customers who are interested in it. This is your more affordable entry level device to the Raptor and you provide ZERO tips & tricks or tutorials on the device and its attachments. HUGE miss! Go to the Hypervolt support page for better instruction and use information. READ THE WARNINGS! You don't find info on the 4 interchangeable heads so DON’T LOOK FOR IT. On another note, I don't worry about the build quality on this at all. It is built like a tool! Solid like a tank, this thing feels like it's built to survive a nuclear holocaust. It weighs 2.5lbs and it has a big battery that will last a few sessions. It has a tough plastic shell to house the professional grade internals. There are 4 different heads to use and they all serve different purposes (which you will have to learn on your own if you aren't a Physical Therapist). I'm just glad I own this thing! Battery life is 2+ hours so you can get in some work and not have to charge it. It has LED indicators that tell you battery level so you are not caught off-guard with a dead device. There are three intensity levels, each gets faster as you go up to level 3. I'd recommend mastering level 1 without hurting yourself, then step up as needed. I like the switch is there to shut off the device and protect from accidental start ups. Overall, I LOVE this device and recommend it to ANYONE training or competitive athletes. You can work out so many of the common problems with this device and get warmed up faster to train. If you are serious about training, this is a MUST BUY! I guess I will find out if it is durable in the future.

    Very good sports massager

    I have really enjoyed using this massager! It's very sleek using, and very easy to use. I've never really used anything like this before, so I'm not sure about the size relative to other massagers, but it seems very large and bulky. I have big hands so it's easy enough for me to hold, but the weight and vibration make it slightly uncomfortable after a short-period of time. The battery holds a charge for a very long time. As of writing this I charged it three weeks ago, and have used it 9-10 times for at least 10 minutes (off and on) each time. It appears to still have about half the charge left, so that is extremely impressive. As far as use goes, it's fairly easy to use--there are a couple of "on" switches, which gets a bit confusing, especially the first couple of times you use it since I found myself forgetting the switch on the bottom a few times. There are three speed settings on the massager itself, as well as four different attachments. The biggest issue I've had is the manual is extremely limited, and recommendations about which attachment to use for which ailment would have been appreciated. As it is I just trial-and-errored my way into figuring out what felt best on my shoulders (I get deep pain and knotted muscles in my shoulders very often)--that is probably the manufacturer's intent, but even that is not clearly stated. Overall it does the job, is very sturdy, and holds a charge for a very long time. Due to the size and weight it's very difficult to describe this as portable, though it would fit into a suitcase without issue--just watch your weight if you're flying. If you work out a lot, or tend to have deep-tissue muscle issues then this a great alternative to massage therapy. It does provide a very deep massage, and the variety of attachments lets you address painful areas in a way of your choosing. The three different speeds also add great variety to insure that it's not too painful or that you cause yourself any kind of injury. If you're searching for a device like this the price is right on this one, and it does the trick on deep muscle pain or after workout massage--I just wish it had more details for people just starting out with something like this (it's an intimidating looking device) and that it wasn't quite so heavy and bulky.

    Absolutely Incredible Fitness Massage Device

    Like Many of you, I am work a job where I am mostly sitting but am still active with fitness outside of work. These two combined can lead to a sore body! I was really excited to get the Hypervolt and it did not disappoint: PROS: - It looks high quality coming out of the package! It comes in three main pieces being the battery/handle, the massager, and the massaging bit you attach to it. - Use is simple. You turn it on/off at the bottom of the handle and when its on a green light ring illuminates on the bottom. After that there is a simple button to go from 1, 2, 3 in speed. Very easy! - It just works great. The HyperVolt does exactly what it means to do my massaging and loosening up tense muscles and aches. I can definitely feel a different in my body when I use this vs when I do not. - Having the 4 different massage bits is nice. They work well for different purposes and are good to have. CONS: - I think HyperIce sells a carrying case but I wish it came standard. It would be much easier overall. - The charging cord is fine but I wish it was USB-C or something more universal than the charger it came with. Would be easier for travel. - On one hand this device is expensive. On the other it is high quality and works really well so its a balance there. BOTTOM LINE: Although expensive, you will never regret having this around after a long day at the office or an intense workout. Honestly one of my favorite things I have!

    I’ve been using my new Hypervolt for a while now and I have mixed emotions about it. For one, I feel like this is made more for athletes and therapists than the average Joe. It is like a two and a half pound jackhammer that even on the lowest setting is very powerful. This is not a massager for someone that just wants a little destressing. For someone that is on the frail side I think it’s too powerful. Two elderly people that I tried this on both said it was too rough for them. This is more for someone that has done a workout and has specific sore muscle spots. The pounding is painful in those spots but the vibration leaves a numbing sensation in the area which provides temporary relief. The medical benefits are more anecdotal than hard science, so take them with a grain of salt. It is a bit awkward to try on your own back. While it can be done, it isn’t an easy process so I would recommend getting someone else to use it on your back. It’s pretty easy to use on your own legs though. Bottom line: if you’re an athlete with frequent sore muscles, give this a try as it may help with recovery. If you’re a massage therapist, this may be a good tool in your arsenal. If you’re looking for a massager to help relax away the stresses of the day, this isn’t the product for you. I would recommend this to a friend that is an athlete, but no one else.

    Does what it is supposed to do

    I bought this about two weeks ago. Used it a few times since I bought it. As other people have said, this thing has virtually no instructions, just comes with 4 attachments that target different areas, and 3 speed settings to give better results for better areas targeted. Would be nice if the manufacturer gave you some indication of how they want their product to be used, but its not hard to learn what your body likes and doesn't like from the different attachments. I suffer from mild sciolosis. It's not so bad that I hunchback or anything, but the curve in my spine is not correct. That causes my neck to also not be aligned properly, and many days I have a stiff back and/or neck. Working out that day I feel fine, but then it feels like someone always kicked my back the next day. I have tried so many things to help alleviate the pain. Massages, foot orthotics, stretching everyday, cracking it, ibuprofen. Everything is always temporary relief. While this machine has not completely healed the soreness, my god is a day where I don't feel sore and tight a blessing. I can turn it all the way up and my lower back is thanking me, almost wishing it had a stronger setting, as it does it's magic, but places like my neck I turn it on low, use the ball massager and gently let it do its thing. 5 minutes using this machine and my body feels great and rejuvenated. Looking forward to when it warms up and I can go for runs outside to see what this machine can do to sore legs. With 4 attachments you will find what attachments targets what areas the best and how your body responds to the vibrations. Truly if you suffer from achy, sore muscles or stiffness and don't want to pay hospital physical therapy or chiropratic bills, this machine will make you feel better. I wish I knew about this product years ago, but I am glad I have it now.

    Great battery life, designed for "spot" aches.

    We received the Hypervolt massager - I got it mostly for my wife, as she has issues with aches and pains in her back, shoulders and Sciatica. From the feel of the box and everything included, as well as the overall design and sturdiness of the device, I definitely feel like it's a "money's worth" purchase. It works great for pains in specific spots and muscles. Unfortunately, nothing in the box or online that I've found explain the specific purpose for some of the odder attachments, like the pronged one. We mostly use the flat circular one and the rounded ball one. Everything works great though and the speeds go so fast, you can't even tell it's on or vibrating while holding it - which is great. I will say this brings the blood to the surface of the skin much quicker than most others I've used and I have to quit after about 15-20 min or so. However, if you are looking for more coverage at once (such as for having someone do your whole back), this is not what you are looking for - it's very cumbersome for that. I do wish there was a head that provided a little more coverage - perhaps a slightly wider one. Especially given the asking price. Additionally, the battery life is outstanding and we've yet to have to charge it since our initial charge.

    I knew this would happen. I knew that once we received the new HyperIce - Hypervolt vibration massage device that it would go missing in my house and I would have trouble getting my own time with the device. Yup - that's exactly what happened. I have teenage sons that love to work-out, lift weights and get buff. They lift hard and come home and talk about how sore they are. Boo Hoo. Always asking for back rubs, leg rubs, etc. Not Any More. Enter the vibration massage unit. WOW. I'll admin it looks a little menacing - almost gun like. However, it runs so smooth, so quiet - so much better than my Dewalt jigsaw with the massage ball attachment. There is no comparison. It comes with 4 massage attachments to really help get in there when needed. I absolutely love it. It holds a charge for roughly 2 hours - which is ample time to massage several people. It feels great on the back, neck, legs, arms, feet - just stay off the head and those boney areas. If you're an athlete that needs a good, penetrating massage or even if you are an office worker with shoulder and neck stress - you are going to LOVE this device. I don't give 5 stars very often at all - but this device rates HIGH on both mine and my family's list. You won't be sorry.

    Good Controllable Massager

    The hypervolt is a handheld massaging device that's designed to alleviate tight or cramped muscles and tissues. It's drill-driver like shape gives the impression that it is more designed for one person to use on another though it appears the intent is personal use. The shape and attachments do make reaching just about every muscle on the body relatively easily, though some contortion and practicing in the mirror is required for tough to reach areas like the middle back. Once charged up, you're good to go for about three hours. I doubt anyone will use it continuously for that amount of time but it is good to be able to get several sessions on a single charge. Surprisingly, speed control isn't variable via a twist grip of some sort instead pressing the power button to cycle through three discrete speeds. I found myself mostly using the ball and small disc attachments. Those allowed the best application of force to muscles on my back and thighs. I'd like something with a smaller point to really get a point deep tissue massage but the barrel and tine type attachments don't quite cut it for me. In all, it's a bit more fun than the contortionist stretching I'd donne previously to try and target muscles using the hard backrest of a couch or foam yoga blocks. It's not a completely quiet running device, honestly about what you'd expect for something that seems to be modeled in part on a drill-driver.

    I purchased this product about a week ago and was simply impressed to say the least. I run between 15 to 20 miles a week, so needless to say my calves get a little sore. There are three settings low, medium, and high. While the high was too powerful for me, the low and medium worked perfectly fine. This product did a great job working through the knots in my legs, neck, and shoulders. It is easy to assemble and use. The battery comes fully charged right out of the box which is an added bonus. The only downside is this product is fairly heavy, so plan accordingly if you are planning to travel with this. Also, it doesn't come with a bag/case, which means you have to be careful with keeping up with the included parts (charger, massage tips, etc.). Keep in mind, this massager can be very powerful even at low settings. Overall, this is a great product and I wouldn't hesitate recommending this product to active individuals.

    This review has been hard to put into words as I'm still on the fence about this device after trying it out several times. I did read the description and thought I understood that this was similar to a deep tissue massage, however I was not prepared for the level of vibration this offers even on the lowest setting. I think the massager is quite large and almost too heavy to use on your own so for testing this out I used it primarily on my husband's back and neck. We found that the small round foam adapter head was the most useful for massaging sore muscles and working out knots. I don't feel the hard plastic adapter heads are as useful as this massager is almost too powerful to take a hard plastic piece to sensitive muscles on your body. I will say my husband likes this and has been pleased with how it works out knots but my hands go numb just from holding it to try to help him. It's a great device as it does what it says however it's almost too powerful for home use and I don't feel like the majority of the included adapter heads are as useful as I expected.

    So this might seem like overkill or a novelty. Well it is for sure. In I good way. I myself work out 4-5 days week in and week out. I also work light labor for a few hours a day 5 days a week. And I am always sore(mild). I also usually have tight knots throughout my body. Due to the heavy physical activity done daily. And this hypervolt massager works wonders. It’s light weight. But looks cool and high end. I can operate it with one hand. I’m no professional but I know the basics. I target the spots I can reach myself. And ask my wife to get the hard to reach spots. This product works amazingly. You feel looser and more relaxed after just a few minutes. There are 3 levels. I use level 2. That’s a perfect speed for me. Battery life last several hours. You also get several attachments. They are a ball shaped, a bullet shaped and some 2 prong looking one that I’m not sure if I will use. I’m satisfied with it. Works perfectly for my needs. We can all use a personal massager. Good luck!

    Good Massager But A Little Too Rough At High Speed

    The Hyperice Hypervolt massager is an overall decent massaging device. It is said to help relieve muscle soreness and stiffness, improves range of motion, promotes circulation, accelerates warmup and recovery, its lightweight, and easy-to-use for self-myofascial release. It comes with 4 different style heads to vary up the way the massager works. The unit itself seems sturdy and well made and is balanced well with the weight of the battery. Overall it does a great job loosening up my tight hamstrings and my back muscles and has more than enough battery life for multiple uses on one charge. The one thing I will say with this device is its almost too powerful for its own good. Anything really above Level 1 is almost too much with any of the attachments. The motor in the massager is so strong it literally hurts on Level 2, and Level 3 well forget about it. I think it has great portability because its wireless but for 350 dollars I would think you could find a similar device that does the same thing for cheaper. Overall I'm not sure I would pay the money again for something that really doesn't have any function past pulsating. If it somehow could incorporate heat I think it would make it even better, but for now I would say spend your money elsewhere unless you really want a strong device for deep tissue massage.

    Well Worth The Price

    My wife suffers from chronic muscle pain from old injuries. One of my coworkers showed me the Hypervolt we decided to take a chance on it. At $350 this is not cheap by any stretch, but the relief it provides makes it well worth the price. The box includes the motor, battery, charger, and 4 attachments. I was a little disappointed a carrying case isn't included, though the box can serve as a case of sorts. Using the Hypervolt is dead simple, there's just the power switch and one button, which cycles through the 3 intensity levels. We found the ball attachment to be the best general use one, but the bullet was also really nice for targeting specific areas. The motor is super smooth and in general we only needed to use the first and second intensity levels. The battery life is indicated on the back and while your usage will vary, we've been able to get at least a couple hours of use between charges. As a fitness-oriented device I can't comment on that as much as neither myself or my wife are very athletic, but for her it's been a godsend.

    Vey Impressive Piece of Equipment!

    This is the most impressive piece of equipment we have purchased in a long time. The Hypervolt is a very quiet, effective and useful massager; easy to charge up for use and very easy to handle and use on your own. I have been experiencing issues with my right arm due to all day computer work at my job, I have been using this daily on my upper arm, shoulder, forearm and the pain is virtually gone. I do use the massager each night before bed and I have found I sleep better and wake up less stiff or sore in the mornings. My husband has found it helpful to massage muscles overused while golfing or just working in the yard. We are 57 years old and find this one of our best purchases made over the years! Best Buy staff at the Maple Grove MN store were amazing and thank you to Geek Squad member Aiden who happened to find this in the back warehouse after other staff could not locate the item and had told me they were not in stock - excellent service!!

    When I first received the Hyperice Hypervolt massager I was not sure what to expect. I did not think a battery operated massager would have enough power to be effective. Wow, was I wrong. The massager is fantastic and unbelievably powerful. It’s lightweight, quiet , well built and balanced. It comes with 4 different head attachments , each designed to massage differently and get deeper into the muscles. I personally like the bullet shaped attachment, it gets right into the muscles between the shoulder blades. The battery life is very good, I’ve run the massager for about a total of 1.5 hours and the batter still has over 50% charge ( there is a handy battery indicator built into the head unit.) Although I cannot attest to the long term durability since I have only had the Hyperice Hypervolt massager for a week, I can say it has a premium feel to it and appears to have top notch fit and finish. If you are one that has muscle aches or knots ( as I do,) you cannot go wrong with the Hyperice Hypervolt massager.
