I'd watch that whatever the pins set on is conductive. I think you can
get some static effects if you don't have conductive materials in the
thing. I had one that was made in a black plastic bread box, and it had
conductive foam to park the parts in.
If you get a unit that isn't an eraser as suggested in other parts of
the thread that is all I'd watch. Make sure that the other units have
metal to set the parts on, since a barber shop sterilizer may have glass
or such, and not metal.
