VeRelief Mini vs. VeRelief Prime: Which is Right for You?

VeRelief Mini vs. VeRelief Prime: Which is Right for You?

Stress and anxiety are the most prevalent mental health conditions on the planet. Yet there remains a limited number of effective non-drug or fast-acting solutions that provide relaxation and relief. The VeRelief vagus nerve stimulation product is one of the most effective tools for quickly recovering from a stress response. But with two different models available, it can be difficult to understand exactly which one may be right for you. This article will go over some of the key features of each product and explain their differences and similarities, and ultimately help you decide which product is best for you. 

 

Short Answer

VeRelief Mini: Best for individuals who experience mild to moderate levels of stress from time to time and are looking for convenient stress recovery in any situation.

VeRelief Prime: Best for individuals who experience moderate to more severe stress episodes due to constant travel, work, performances, or other high-stress scenarios. 

 

Design Features

Design

  • VeRelief Mini: Wireless and smaller than a car key fob, this tool was designed for people who travel often and need fast and effective stress recovery on the go. It is small, portable, and can be used discreetly in any environment. 
  • VeRelief Prime: The Prime is about 2x larger than the Mini, but still smaller than a computer mouse. It fits comfortably in one hand and is easily portable and can be used discreetly in any environment. 

Number of Modes

  • VeRelief Mini: The Mini has 1 mode of operation that uses a 100Hz frequency signal with a specialty waveform that acts as a breath pacer to help you slow your breathing for a stronger relaxation experience. Or simply hold the device in place without using the breath pacer and simply enjoy the soothing sensations.
  • VeRelief Prime: The Prime has 5 modes of operation so you can change your relaxation settings to match how you feel in the moment.
    • Mode 1: 8Hz continuous. Also effective for median nerve stimulation in the wrist. 
    • Mode 2: 25Hz continuous. Also effective for trigeminal nerve stimulation in the forehead or cervical vagus on the front side of the neck.
    • Mode 3: 100Hz continuous. Ideal for the "low and slow" protocol for highly sensitive patients. 
    • Modes 4-5: Specialty waveforms designed to act as breath pacers, teaching you to slow your breath down and maximize stress recovery. 

Intensity Levels

  • VeRelief Mini: The Mini has 20 discreet intensity levels with a maximum output of around 7mA.
  • VeRelief Prime: The Prime has 20 discreet intensity levels with a maximum output of around 15mA. 

Battery

  • VeRelief Mini: The Mini has a small battery that lasts about 7 days on a full charge. 
  • VeRelief Prime: The Prime has a larger battery that lasts about 14 days on a full charge. Battery life varies with frequency and duration of use. 

Electrodes

  • VeRelief Mini: The Mini uses proprietary advanced biomaterials to comfortably deliver electrical energy to the target nerve in a comfortable manner. We recommend replacing the Mini electrodes once per week to get the most comfortable experience. However, they can be used for beyond 7 days if desired, albeit with a sharper stimulation experience. 
  • VeRelief Prime: The Prime uses larger electrodes with improved comfort during stimulation and a longer lasting use life (up to 14 days before we recommend replacing them). It is also MUCH easier to hit the target nerves with Prime electrodes, allowing for an overall more enjoyable experience. 

Price

  • VeRelief Mini: $199. Comes with 24 pairs of electrodes, which will last around 6 months with daily use or 12+ months with varying use. 
  • VeRelief Prime: $399. Comes with 12 pairs of electrodes, which will last around 12 months with daily use or 18+ months with varying use.

The Decision

The purpose for which you intend to use either product will determine which product is best for you. If you are simply looking for a non-drug tool that can calm you down from a stress response in any environment, then the Mini will be an excellent choice. 


If you are a high-performing individual or someone who lives a high stress lifestyle who experiences the negative effects of stress a bit more frequently than most, the Prime will be the best choice. 


Overall, the Prime is the superior product. If you choose the Prime and it doesn’t work for you, then the Mini likely won’t work for you either. If you choose the Prime and it does work for you, then you’ll be happy you own the superior product.
