Hello, 
can OLIMEX active electrodes be used without gel?
Are they DRY?

Thanks

Hey eleecieffe,

They can. I usually perform the tests I do here without gel. However, note that it is good practice to use the conductive gel - it acts as an additional layer of protection (especially if you have dry/sensitive skin) AND increases the contact area - which improves the results.

Best regards,
Lub/OLIMEX
