You want your violet wand to last a long time and you’re good with its upkeep and maintenance while you’re using it.

But what about long term storage or transporting it?  These simple instructions will keep it in good working condition.  After all, you are going to have one of our violet wands for years and years, so there will be times you need to move it or put it away for a while.

 

Transporting:

  • After unplugging, turn your violet wand the whole way up till the knob stops.  This will keep the contacts in a held position so they don’t get knocked out of alignment when transporting.
  • Wrap your cord around the wand body, making sure there are no kinks or sharp bends in the cord.  Pad well or leave it in the case it came in, held firmly in place with padding so it isn’t knocked about.

 

Putting your wand away after playing:

  • Wipe down your wand body and cord with a soft cloth.
  • Wrap the cord around the wand body, making sure there are no kinks or sharp bends in the cord.
  • Turn your wand knob up the whole way until it stops.  This keeps your contacts aligned properly.
  • Check the nosecone for foreign objects.
  • Tuck your wand away in the case it came in.  It is a good idea to keep the silica gel packets inside the case in the wand compartment, but not necessary to enclose the wand in a bag with them for short-term storage.
  • Put any protective foam back in place to keep your wand from knocking about.

 

Long-term storage:

  • To prepare your wand for long term storage or periods of not using it, start by buffing your wand with a good grade of polish.
  • Doing this removes skin oils, foreign substances, dust and puts a protective coating on the wand body.
  • Make sure your wand collet nut is in place and tightened.  (if it has one, many of our Violetwanda and Mjolnir violet wands do not have collet nuts so you don’t have to worry about losing it)
  • Rub down the cord with a soft cloth to remove dust, particles and oils.  Wrap the cord around the wand body making sure there are no sharp bends.
  • Tighten the adjustment knob UPWARD to its highest setting till it just stops.  This will keep the contacts aligned.
  • Place your wand in a plastic or paper bag with packets of silica gel. Moisture over time is a nemesis!  Our wands come with bags and silica gel packets in case you have to store it for periods of time.
  • Pad well with foam padding or store in the case it came in, which is best.
  • Store in a temperature controlled area.  Cold damp basements or hot attics are bad for it.

Bringing your wand out of long-term storage:

  • Open your case and remove the wand. Remove the wand from plastic bag.
  • Check your electrical cord for its integrity, and the plug end to make sure there is no corrosion.
  • Wipe down cord and your wand body.  Now is a good time to use some polish again.
  • Check the nosecone for foreign objects, and to see if there is any sign of corrosion.
  • Turn the knob gently downward toward low.  Remember you stored your wand with it the whole way on ‘high’.  The knob may be slightly difficult to turn at first.
  • If your knob feels frozen, you can try to force it with your hand strength only.  Do not use any pliers or grips, etc.  If you bugger it up by hand, we can fix it.  If it won’t turn, or you don’t want to try to force it, we can fix that too.
  • Turn the knob up and down slowly over the full adjustment range to ensure smooth working.
  • Plug the wand in, turn the wand knob to medium and allow to run for 5-10 minutes without an electrode to check operation.
  • You will have to charge your electrodes.
  • Give your wand a break-in period by running it no more than 15 minutes the first time it comes out of storage, and increasing run time each time you play.
