I hate getting shocked and I saw this and immediately bought one. I tested it
out on a door handle that gives frequent shocks due to the carpeted floors. I
tested it on the door handle: first without the device, and I was shocked. Then,
I walked on the carpet to generate static electricity and touched the absorber
to the door handle. I saw the light flicker, then opened the door. No shock!! It
now has a place on my key chain. It's a little pricey, but worth it for me. A
plus is that this is small, so very convenient to carry all the time!
