The commonly used two-term relaxation equation can lead to inconsistencies, which researchers have sought to resolve by introducing diffusion and scattering-time effects. It is shown here that the complete equation ∂n<sup>~</sup>/∂t + σ/ε n<sup>~</sup>+ E<sup>→</sup>ċ grad<sup>→</sup>(nµ) = 0 is sufficient to account for charge flow, propagation effects and surface-charge induction, as well as instabilities in negative-differential-conductivity materials.
