Spot On Energy Patch Review:
I think I may have seen it all now with Energy Drinks. I have seen energy shots shrink in size, caffeinated gum, mints, chocolates, candy, chips, energy strips, caffeinated soap, sunflower seeds, breath spray and the list goes on and on. Check out my complete list of Outrageous Energy Products Here. At the end of that post I made a prediction that we would some day have caffeinated air. While I have yet to hear of caffeinated air, we do have another crazy caffeine concoction to add to the list.... the Spot on Energy Patch. That's right you heard me correctly, a patch that is applied directly to your skin, meant to supply you with energy minus the calories and bad taste. The Spot On Energy patches have a suggested retail price of $2.99 and each pack comes with four patches.
Spot On Energy Patch Review: Taste
This is applied to your skin and it is not meant to eat or drink. So don't eat or drink it, if you do you have issues.
Spot On Energy Patch Review: Kick
As I stated above each pack of Spot On Energy contains 4 patches for a suggested retail price of $2.99. Each individual patch contains the following ingredients: 20 milligrams of caffeine, 5 milligrams of taurine, 4 milligrams of green tea extract, and a bunch of b-vitamins. I know what you are thinking, 20 milligrams of caffeine, that's it? Well that was the same thing I was thinking and believe me I was tempted to put all four patches on and see what happened, but I restrained and only put two patches on (the max recommended dosage at one time - you can use up to 4 patches throughout the day, just not at once). I put one patch on each of my biceps... Within a minute or two I definitely felt a little tingle of the skin, nothing annoying or irritating but I could feel something. (I was also tempted to "Apply Directly to Forehead" but then I realized that was the wrong product!!!) Spot On Energy was hard to compare to your normal everyday energy drinks and shots, but within 20 minutes I definitely felt more energized and my energy level was sustained for a good 2-3 hours. So to sum up this seemed like a good value to me. You get 4 patches that you can apply throughout the day that should give you about 4-6 hours of energy without the crash all for $2.99 which seems like a better deal than your normal 16 ounce energy drinks. Kick Rating - 8.6
Spot On Energy Patch Review: Final Judgment
So this is definitely a unique energy product, but the fact is it worked. The suggested retail price of $2.99 seems like a bargain considering you get 4 patches. The portability and ease of these was quite well received by this reviewer. Also, the fact that there were zero calories was also a plus. Although it was not the strongest energy product I have tried, in my opinion this would make for an excellent study aid for those late night cram sessions. Anyways the final judgment on this will be slightly different that normal. It won't be based on taste and kick (because there was no taste). Instead I will base it on kick (rating - 8.6) and I will give it a couple extra points for creativeness and price. Final Judgment - 8.8
