10 minutes or 8 minutes?

Some people are reporting it is 8 minutes. Others are saying it is 10 minutes.

8 mins, which is not much time at all taking into consideration you have to check in/out every time you come in or leave.

its 8 minutes but it gives you an extra minute past that to read the directions for the next session... Its a nice chance to get relaxed before the next session.
