Any tips on battery life? I charged mine up when I got it. Then went to use it a few days later and it was dead. So charged it again. Then got to the gig and tested before I approached someone. Then started the routine and it wouldn't buzz for either hand. I took a punt and just guessed and got it wrong. Looked like a chump. Then moved on to something else and tried to save face. It's not the most convenient design for switching on and off discreetly so I want to know how other people Are handling it? I want to use it early on in my show but now I'm worried I can't trust it. Unless mine is faulty?

It sounds like you may have a faulty set. Contact the dealer you bought it from or the manufacturer.


You have discovered the reason I don't usually use electronics, and if I do, I have an out/alternative method or presentation if they fail (I learned the hard way).

I will PM you an out, so you an always get out of this type of effect.
It is not a repeatable out, so you do it once and move on.

That was my concern, what if it becomes 'faulty' and doesn't work correctly mid performance, I mean you could style it out but you need to know the reliability of the product when you are investing.

Why the hell chess pieces?! There are great devieces around aloowing for a multitude of objects.. where (when not framed in a stage show) you will find the possibility to incorporate chess pieces naturally? That is a pointless product..

Can this be done with particular types of coins or are you restricted to the chess pieces?

It's a set - you're restricted to the chess piece supplied.

You can always tell the workers from the armchair people by post like these. I agree 100% with you Tony about electronics in magic or mentalism.
