There are different theories on this, but the stronger the magnet you put into the cup, the weaker (and smaller) the magnet you'll need to put into the ball (or whatever object you're using instead of the standard ball). Good luck!

What about taking 2 Starbucks paper cups, cutting off the rim of one of them, and putting the magnet inbetween? Glue the cut down cup inside the other one and there you have an almost undetectable and cheap chop cup.

The mug I have had a hole drilled into the bottom and a strong you know what put in, it was very small and then who ever made it simply put a do not microwave sticker over the hole.

This is an excellent idea, I'm going to make this.
Thanks for the post

If you can, get rid of the magnet in the ball. Increase the other; magnetic balls often jump or shift as the poles line up if you put the ball on top of the cup. I had this problem with a combo set. I was able to tease out the magnet and replace it with a wad of steel wool.

I would love to see a method to steal the gimmick from the cup at the end without a PK type device.
