Good things come in..sparking packages

 

Well, I got my Mjolnir Pulse violet wand.  Finally.  I have been anxiously awaiting this modern marvel.  I have, and secretly order, various items from most of the violet wand companies.  (Wait till you read my upcoming blog on lightbulb adaptor sets.  We rip them apart, literally.)

 

But few things have been holding my attention as much as this new violet wand.  Ive been leery, skeptical, scared and excited, all at the same time.

 

If you havent seen it, here it is

http://www.violet-wands.com/details/59/8/the-wands

and its a huge step forward in violet wands.

 

The description on the item’s page is rather lengthy, but I’ll sum it up as short as I can.  The Mjolnir Pulse violet wand will be all that you expect, and nothing like you can guess. 

 

First, I knew it was going to take a while to receive.  The company estimates 3-6 weeks for delivery under normal circumstances.  At one point I got a notice that the holidays had been high in demand and the wait would be a bit longer.  Im familiar with the company, and so I know that they manufacture themselves on a small scale, and that their kind of quality takes time so I was not worried even though I was disappointed.  It arrived in a plain discreet box, well packed and insured. 

 

When I lifted it out of the package, I was a bit surprised as it was smaller and lighter in weight than I expected.  It feels substantially built.  There were some small manufacturing marks on the case.  It came in a bag with the extension cable and handle and metal probe which acts as a body contact probe, and a short manual.

 

I fought with my manly-know-it-all nature and sat down to the read the manual first.  No, I didn’t.  I lie; I got out all the components and fitted them all together.  The cable plugs in nicely to the wand, and the handle connects onto the cable.  The metal rod plugs into the handle.  The handle is solid and very mysterious.  I’ve seen one other vendor’s copy of this handle and its just a hollow foam handle on a cable.  This is miles beyond that knock-off.  This has a lovely, ankle bone connected to the shin bone, fortuitous connection.  It was very satisfying plugging things in and out, and I ran to get electrodes and tried them into the universal collet of the handle.

 

yep, they all fit.  Universal collet is a win.  I am happily able to use all my old and new electrodes of all sizes. 

 

After playing with sticking things in and out, I THEN opened the manual.  Out of curiosity, because real men don’t need manuals.  The manual is short and to the point and left me light-headed.  It states plainly that it assumes I am already familiar with violet wands, their safety and basic techniques.  It implies I should be willing to learn to use this new wand and that it might take some getting used to since it operates differently.  There are a bunch of survey questions for consumer feedback, and the serial number for my new wand, which I also found is on the tamper proof ‘warranty is void if removed’ sticker.

 

The box seems unprepossessing..just a shiny black plastic component box with a handle.  And an electrical cord.  And cute little rubber feet.  And the hole to plug the cable in.  And a mysterious knob.  Alright, the knob isnt really mysterious, but Im getting to that.

 

I made sure the knob was off, then I plugged it in.  I stood back.  I turned it on very carefully and slowly.

 

Right away I could hear the spark repeating inside the box.  My scientific mind was intrigued and I immediately wanted to SEE the spark I was hearing.  I turned the knob up, and the sound grew quieter and faster.  Back, and it grew louder and slower.  It’s always a shame you can’t see inside a wand to see what is making that lovely sound.

 

Overcome with anticipation, I turned it off and plugged in the cable, the handle and the electrode, gripped the handle and turned it on again. I  inched it toward my arm.  And I havent been the same since.

 

I have to say that if you expect the same kind of visuals from this new violet wand as a regular hand held tesla coil violet, you will be disappointed.  This wand is made for spark, not for looking at.  The glow from electrodes is slower and much lower, and the glow of the electrodes strobe with the spark.  Strobe isn’t bad, its just not what we’re accustomed to.

 

I moved the handle toward my arm and prepared for the shock.  Well, I wasnt prepared.  The output from this sucker is up there, but not with just a higher voltage.  The amperage must be up just a bit, because the spark seemed to bite deeper.  Each spark was a separate sensation and rather than in a steady stream, the sparks were like individual bees.  Each spark made me want to recoil.

 

I turned the wand ‘up’ to the faster but lighter settings and played with that a while.  At the fast end, it was much more like the output of a handheld violet wand, and the electrode strobe was faster.

 

At the fastest settings it felt more like a hand held violet wand as well.  Which, once I’d had the lower end of the adjustment, now didn’t seem like it was enough.  So I went back to the slow sparks, and each spark that ‘ticked’ out of my new wand was a sharp, nasty sting.  I played with that a while to get the feel of it then decided to try the metal probe in the wand.

 

Now, the metal probe in the handle, is used as a body contact probe.  There is a separate instruction in the Pulse wand’s user manual regarding Indirect techniques.  It seems that you can complete a circuit by holding the probe for Indirect and trying to turn the wand on, and send a spark to the knob which you feel, so there is a little work around.   I didnt have anyone close by to try Indirect, so I just touched the metal probe to my knee.  And I promptly swore at the sky, the moon, and at the floor where I had dropped the handle.

 

The Pulse wand has the output circuit isolated from the operating circuit, and a built in isolation gap for safety, so I know I was not injured.  Dont let me scare you, it was by no means as strong as a cattle prod or anything like that.  It was very violet wand-like, or as if it were the demon spawn of a violet wand and an EMS, and stronger.  Multiply the door-knob shock feel of a violet wand x 10, and you get the idea.  It may be too much for most people.

 

So, now Im even more intrigued.  Knowing the wand was safe to do so, I started sticking all kinds of conductive things in the handle if they fit, and testing out how they felt.  And it was pretty amazing.  The handle keeps you out of the circuit, though of course if you get too close to the connectors between the handle and the cable, the electricity is going to jump.  So I developed a relaxed but comfortable grip on the handle, and realized that it was so lightweight that I could even hold it like a pencil and do violet wand branding.  This was going to be fun.

 

The Mjolnir Pulse wand sits on a table, and with its grip back it did not slide around at all.  It has been easy to use but does take some getting used to its differences in operation.  It requires a rethink to know that the lighter sparks are at the far end of the adjustment, and the nasty slow heavy sparks are at the beginning of the knob adjustment.  But that will come with time and practice.  I would like to see a different feel to the adjustment knob, like clicks rather than a slow rotation, but that also could be that is what Im accustomed to with a hand held violet wand.

 

But the main difference is that I feel like I have been playing T-ball till now, and for once have gotten a ball pitched at me.  The Mjolnir Pulse is a different league.  Im pretty pleased with all the possibilities that lie ahead.

 

p.s. I have discovered something fun.  If you set the box on its side, the collet is facing upward. You can plug a lightbulb adaptor into it, or even an electrode, and have it standing straight up.  Will have to experiment further.

    Everything on this website is fascinating to read. I am watching for Pulse violet wand to come back in stock. I understand they only make a few a year, but I don’t understand why. Don’t they want my money? I even said I would even pay double but they won’t do it. They say ‘just put your name on the website waiting list.’ I dont want to wait!

    How is this item holding up for you now? Is it still functioning well? Is it as described?
