Each new EagleEyes kit comes with enough supplies for the first few months of use. Below is a description of the different supplies and where they can be purchased. The Opportunity Foundation of America does not provide ongoing free supplies after the initial placement of a system.
We recommend Johnson and Johnson 1 inch cloth tape. If the user has oily skin, medical paper tape may be a better option because it has a stronger adhesive. Don't be afraid to try different tapes if the cloth tape does not work for you. Different 1 inch medical tapes can be purchased at most major drug stores and Johnson and Johnson brand can be found at Walgreen's or RiteAid Pharmacy and even in the pharmacy section of Target.
Alcohol swabs or prep pads are available in many brands and materials. Alcohol swabs are used to remove oils from the skin for better tape adhesion, better electrode sensitivity, and to sanitize the electrodes. We recommend the generic Walgreen's or RiteAid brand because they are a thicker woven type swab and less expensive than the name brand, but most any brand of alcohol swab will work.
Ten20 is the only recommended brand of electrode paste for EagleEyes. If you are using electrode gel, it is highly recommended for you to switch to the paste for better results. It is top rated and sensitive to most skin types. It is also very conductive and easy clean up. You can find this paste online by searching for it by name. Usually one tub of paste will last quite a while. If you do not need to purchase 3 at a time, Contact Us for more options.
You can purchase 9 volt alkaline batteries at most stores. We recommend only using name brand batteries such as Duracell, Rayovac, or Energizer. Most off-brand batteries have a much lower life expectancy and do not perform as well in any device. You can also use non-rechargeable lithium batteries if you prefer. However the cost of a non-rechargeable lithium battery is significantly more than alkaline but will also last much longer than alkaline.
Digital Battery Tester
Theses simple digital battery testers can be a big help to know when your batteries are low. Some times the low battery light will not illuminate because only one battery is low. It is highly recommended to have a 9 volt battery tester on hand. This model can be purchased by Clicking Here.
8.4 Volt Rechargeable Batteries
You can use 8.4 volt rechargeable batteries in the EagleEyes system. Because of the nature of rechargeable batteries they are not actually 9 volts. There are several voltages available but 8.4 volts is the only approved rechargeable battery for EagleEyes. We recommend purchasing 4 batteries so you can always have a set of charged batteries. Powerex is a recommended brand because of their reliability and performance. You can purchase them online by Clicking Here.
Rechargeable Battery Station
For use with 8.4 volt rechargeable batteries ONLY. This charging station will turn green when the batteries are finished charging and will charge them in about an hour. It is recommended that the batteries be removed from the charger once fully charged. You can purchase this charger online by Clicking Here. (The listing says it is for 9.6 volt batteries but it is compatible with all 9 volt rechargeable batteries)
