This is for the vibepad 1. Firstly know that there is an almost indiscernible button on the bottom side of the bad that you need to press to turn the pad on. It can be used with or without the remote-without remote turns on to the last setting used;With the remote allows you to change vibration levels. May not need to be said but placement on a hard surface makes a big difference-dont lose power of vibrations through cushioned surface. Tried with either hump forward and found it difficult to get deep enough vibration for an O. What it did accomplish though is stimulating me enough to make any targeted stimulus explosive! Am very very curious about the vibepad 2 and the flicker addition. Think it would make the difference I need for complete 5 star satisfaction.
