The technology is fairly new and limited, currently allowing travel up to 1 second into the past for small corrections to everyday problems. The devices come equipped with an auto fail safe which will disintegrate your former self preventing any possible time paradox.

Use these devices to perform special mechanics such as Double Time Canceling (DTC), Jump Time Canceling (JTC), and Absorb Time Canceling (ATC). Be careful, energy is limited and is directly connected to your TC Meter.
