David did this at the maga convention, it was very clever.

Anyone know if the battery compartment can be shown "empty" AFTER the switch? Thanks.

Yes, it looks like the back of the phone. very good, just leave it in for when you want to use it. The phone works normal until of coarse you take the battery out.

Does it matter how thin the phone is? My phone is VERY thin. Ofcourse I know how this is done...but I would rather pay for quality and ethics.

I don't think an iphone would work because of the battery compartment... There isn't enough room in there for a folded card I don't think. This effect is meant for a regular cell phone with that slide off battery compartment. Just my guess from the demo... maybe write your favorite magic shop, and they can look at it for you? Smile

Cut a card in quarters, then if 2 pieces on top of one another(ie double the thickness of a quarter size of a playing card) fit in the battery compartment it will work

Not strictly correct...is a bit thicker than that. I fitted the effect into my PDA to perform this. I have a leather case around my PDA so I can attach it to my belt. And I perform card under PDA, card on PDA where the card is actually between the leather and PDA, then I tell them I will do it again whilst it is in their hands, they have a look and I say sorry, went too far, and finish with card in PDA

Sorry, meant thickness, not size. The size is right, its the size of a quarter of a playing card, but the thickness doesn't help. It fitted my phone battery size perfectly. But, was incredibly tight when I tried closing the phone that it just wanted to pop off now and then...then it struck me with the PDA routine

Can someone answer my question as posted above? Can I show the cell phone compartment "empty" or do I have to place the cell phone battery compartment down onto the table to hide the gimmick? This is a deal breaker for me because I'm working on a method to show the battery compartment "empty" and their card in my hand. So, it would make no sense to purchase an inferior method.

Please PM me. Thanks.

Yes, if by empty after the switch is made it looks if nothing is there but the battery.

my only wish is with the high price tag of 40 usd that it came with extra gimmicks. it doesn't seem like it will last very long to me
