Life Ionizer 8100 Review

Retail Price $2,997


The Life Ionizer 8100 model is one of the more expensive models on the market, yet has some of the quality components looked for in a water ionizer. With 7 plates made of Titanium and Platinum it carrie some of the industry standards for quality.

Despite some of the recent problems with the Better Business Bureau ( Life Ionizer falsely claims a AAA+ rating, while the BBB website in reality gives them an "F" . It also says they are not a qualified member) I like their ionizers, although the Customer Service problems and negative feedback make me hesitate recommending them.

Common Questions

Here's what people ask about Life Ionizers:

Q: They have something they call "EFT" in the Life Ionizer 8100, which means some kind of Energy Frequency Quantum Technology. What do you think of it?

A: Not having tested it I do not know either way. I have had a lot of personal experience with energy medicine, energy medicine devices, and while everything in life is frequency there aren't a lot of devices that can measure it correctly. I also could not find very much being written about it, who did the research on it, and their website is very sketchy about it.

Q: Is it a good value?

A: I think that there are many models which are comparable in quality and much lower in price.

Q: What about the Mesh technology?

A: My suggestion is to save your money. While it's true that MESH can give you slightly more ORP or pH range (because a MESH has more surface area to ionizer the water than a flat surface) it also requires more cleaning and potentially, as some technicians claim, can wear faster. The flat plate design is still the industry standard and has a longer track record. I think it's more about a company being different and/or something to "upsell" that a breakthrough.
