What We DID NOT LIKE About the Viatek Ionic Energizer Foot Spa:

To us, the Viatek Ionic Energizer Foot Spa was as attractive as a big yellow banana that’s offered to you while you’re hungry: it’s beautiful, it’s healthy, and you know it’s delicious.

Unfortunately, like the banana, it’s not very cheap either. And you feel very much like a monkey after you buy it.

You see, the Viatek Ionic Energizer Foot Spa lasts for about 30 uses. At three uses a week, that’s about two months’ use. Like the real banana, it’s gone before you’re completely satisfied.

Well, at least the Viatek Ionic Energizer Foot Spa is cheap, right?

It doesn’t end there, though. When you read the product literature, you’ll find that the dual arrays last for just about 30 treatments—a far cry from the 60 to 80 treatments that the other brands can last for. Perhaps, Viatek reasoned, what’s the point in making arrays that last longer if the machine itself will last only 30 sessions?

We’ve got to shake our furry heads; we’re just too human to be confused.

Third, Viatek talks about its dual arrays as if this were a good thing.

Frankly, we don’t know what the advantage of dual arrays could be. We do know that other brands work well enough on just one array, and the other is kept in reserve for when that first array wears out. The way the Viatek Ionic Energizer Foot Spa is set up, there are no reserve arrays available.

And, we wonder, won’t two arrays mean that we use up twice as much power to use this ionic foot spa? Not eco-friendly at all. Tsk, tsk, tsk, Viatek. We hope the plastic you use is recyclable.

Cons of the Viatek Ionic Energizer Foot Spa:

  • No carrying case, just a storage bag.  (It’s the manufacturer’s way of saying “For home use only.”)
  • Breaks easily. (At least it comes with a pretty-looking bedpan—er, we mean, tub.)
  • Poorly written instructions.  (Nothing new in the world of non-US-made ionic foot spas.)
  • Takes 30 days to issue replacement parts. (But the customer service agents are very friendly.)

Pros of the Viatek Ionic Energizer Foot Spa:

  • Dual array foot spa system.
  • Bubble-massage foot plate. (Good if you like your massages “very, very light.”)
  • Supply of low-sodium salt included. (Better for your heart than table salt, if you put it in the kitchen.)
  • Comes with an instructional video. (In case you are unable to decode the written manual.)
  • Good post-sales service agents. (Almost makes up for the substandard product)

Recommendation and Results

While bananas are hailed as among the most nutritious fruits around, the Viatek Ionic Energizer Foot Spa does not live up to its banana-title this way: it is not as good for your health as eating the banana.

To put it another way, it does not perform as well as a “real” ionic foot spa should. One user reports she felt good after using the $1,000 ionic foot spa, but didn’t get anything even close to the same results with the Viatek Ionic Energizer Foot Spa.

Of course, the fact that her unit only worked for three sessions may have had something to do with it. But she reports feeling better after using a different brand ionic foot spa just once, so we are forced to believe the problem is in the spa itself, not the frequency of use. Read her full comment here.

This apparent ineffectiveness makes us at Ionic Foot Bath Reviews not recommend the Viatek Ionic Energizer Foot Spa. It seems, the only thing it does as well as a quality ionic foot spa model is leave your clean feet wrinkled after being soaked under the water for 30 minutes.

Or, as one disillusioned user writes here, it’s more of a “a bucket that looks more like a bedpan” than an ionic foot spa.

We wish we could say, “You get what you pay for,” but the Viatek Ionic Energizer Foot Spa is not even as cheap as the other brands. To be sure, it has better customer service and it does last longer than some of those $150 models, but at least, those models deliver while the remain functioning.

So in case you missed it the first time we said it, we’ll say it again: Ionic Foot Bath Reviews does not recommend the Viatek Ionic Energizer Foot Spa.
