Titanium is inert to the human body and has high biocompatibility. Do not scrub the titanium-coated massage head with metal scrub or use harsh detergent on them as this could remove the inert material and result in wear and tear. This makes the device more prone to corrosion. Proper maintenance is required after each use to keep your device in good working condition. Clean the massage head gently with a wet towel and dry tissue, taking extra care when cleaning the grooves between the titanium-coated massage head.

LIF adaptor uses a 5V/2A power plug. This ensures that the device is charged quickly and efficiently. We recommend that you charge LIF using the power adaptor provided. You can use the device for treatment when charging.
If you wish to use your own adaptor, please ensure that the maximum voltage and current do not exceed beyond 5.5V/2.5A. For adaptors with voltage and current less than 5V/2A, it will take a longer time to fully charge your device (approx. 1-2 hours more). As such, we do not recommend using LIF for treatment while charging on such power adaptors. The power output is not sufficient to support the device and may cause overheating.
e.g., Power adaptor with 5V/2A power – can be used to charge DR’s Secret LIF. Able to do treatment while charging.
e.g., Power adaptor from 5V/2A to 5.5A/2.5A- can be used to charge DR’s Secret LIF. Able to do treatment while charging.
e.g., Power adaptor with less than 5V/2A power (such as USB charging station) – takes a longer time to fully charge DR’s Secret LIF. Recommended not to use for treatment while charging.

The LIF device will charge even if the device is switched off. You may refer to the battery indicator light to check the battery status.
The average charging time is 1.5 hours if you are plugging it directly into the electric socket. If you wish to charge via USB port on your computer, it will take about 4.5 hours of charging time.
*Note that the electric power output of every USB port varies. Please check the USB power output specifications and the output value of each USB port before charging. Lower power output will lead to a longer charging time of LIF.*
The battery indicator light on the right side of the device will signal the battery status. Green colour indicates that the battery is fully charged.
