Optimum Focus Es1500i Standard Home (Ionic Detox Foot Bath)

What We DID NOT LIKE About the Optimum Focus Es1500i Standard Home Ionic Detox Foot Bath:

Being used to seeing ionic foot baths that were sold for a mere $150, we were in for some real blood-draining sticker shock when we saw the Optimum Focus Es1500i Standard Home Ionic Detox Foot Bath’s price tag:

“One-thousand what??? No, you must have misheard us, miss. We are looking for an ionic foot bath, not a bionic foot.”

But, no, it really was $1,395 for the ionic foot bath.

We shouldn’t have been too surprised. On television, these things are sold for $2,000. But as we said, we were used to seeing $150 price tags . . .

Nevermind. At least it comes with that beautiful copper tub we see in the picture—right?

Er, no. “Copper tub . . . sold separately.”

“Ah, well,”  said the wolf as he walked away from the too-high bunch of grapes. “Those copper tubs are probably too heavy and hard to clean anyway.”

So this is what we’ll do: we’ll take that beautiful tub that came with that $150 unit that broke the second time we used it and did not come with a warranty. We’ll put the Optimum Focus Es1500i Standard Home Ionic Detox Foot Bath’s arrays in it, and see what a difference a thousand bucks makes.

Cons of the Optimum Focus Es1500i Standard Home Ionic Detox Foot Bath:

  • No GFI certification (but the units are UL rated and CE approved. The wiring and connectors are CSA approved.)
  • Tub has to be bought separately. (Beautiful patina-resistant copper tub available separately; works well with plastic tubs too, though.)
  • Array parts not replaceable. (The perfect excuse to skip the tedious task of disassembling, cleaning, and reassembling the array.)
  • The price!

Pros of the Optimum Focus Es1500i Standard Home Ionic Detox Foot Bath:

  • No wrist strap needed; the unit is grounded internally. (Finally, an ionic foot bath company that realizes your arm is not a lightning rod!)
  • The amperage is controlled by a knob in the machine, not by the amount of salt in the water. (You can’t appreciate this fully until you’ve had to put in half pinches of salt in the water a dozen times just to find the right amount to make the device work.)
  • Has a circuit that turns itself off when it detects too much current, plus a mechanism that that shuts the machine down if a fuse blows.
  • Array good for 60 uses.
  • Clear, detailed user guide. (Our internal idiot protests, “Can we skip the amps, hz, and ORPs? We just want to know where to plug these thingies to work this gizmo.)
  • Good customer service and support. (Very useful if you really want to know what ORPs are.)
  • 3-year warranty and 14-day trial period.

Recommendation and Results

As far as performance goes, the Optimum Focus Es1500i Standard Home Ionic Detox Foot Bath is one of the best we’ve seen:

We don’t need to add half pinches of salt a dozen times before we can get the exact, precise amount needed to make the device work. It gets rid of the wrist straps we hate so much.

What’s more, it comes with a very informative manual, good customer service, and a 14-day trial period to boot!

Another thing we like about the Optimum Focus Es1500i Standard Home Ionic Detox Foot Bath is that its main distributor, Hymbas, has over ten years track record in providing quality health products to the public, and the supporting literature they provide on their products is one of the most extensive we’ve seen online.

Now, the only pebble in our shoe is that four-digit price. But from what we’ve seen in the Optimum Focus Es1500i Standard Home Ionic Detox Foot Bath—and considering what we’ve also seen in most of its warranty-less $150 contemporaries—we think the price is pretty reasonable.

Therefore, we at Ionic Foot Bath Reviews recommend the Optimum Focus Es1500i Standard Home Ionic Detox Foot Bath.

We must note, though, that there are also some good $150 products that we have reviewed; so for people who want a cheaper albeit warranty-less product, we suggest you look around first too.
