Is there a vegan version available? I am afraid i can not support the use of fairy dust in products.

Pffft. If only they made the opposite corner rounded too, it would boost the battery performance by another 5.44%-7.82% . Amateurs.

There's an historical precedent that rounded corners tend to attract lawsuits.

Wow, they where out of antenna boosters? Hmm, maybe you could combine both?

So when i stack several on top of each other, my battery performance can go up to 120%? I can charge my IoT Applications with it then!

My ex used to claim that putting a small cardboard pyramid on top of a razor would make it sharper.  I placed the pyramid on top of her head and waited expectantly... she was NOT amused.

It reminds me of people who place the teaspoon in a bottle of champagne to stop the CO2 coming out.

I've never heard of that, but a spoon in a cup before pouring hot liquid might prevent a fracture.

redpatch: 250-pack

USD$1,950.00
Buy in bulk and distribute to project teams and entire workforces.


 :-DD

Show your team how gullible you are and how you are easily taken in for almost two grand for red paper with some glue on it.

What's even more ridiculous, in order to keep repeat business from the gullible, they claim that it only works for "up to 60 days".

Surely it's some kind of "idiot test" by a University, to see how many people actually submit an order?

The true test of gullibility will be those who submit repeat orders.

Yet another sticker that says something between "Hey, look...  I'm amazingly gullible" and "STUPID"

Reminds me of Bill Engvall's comedy routine about people needing "stupid signs."  :)

I'm surprised Linus Tech Tips hasn't done a quickie video lauding this with a careful disclaimer at the end.

This is just a tax on being gullible.

The concave cutout should be facing up, otherwise particles more readily fall out. :palm: I'm afraid the marketing department has gone amok again.

It would've been better if the patch had a more maze-like cutout to trap the electrons. Clearly, they don't have real engineers working on this. :-DD

Do not use too many of them at once or you will have to remove them and discharge the battery periodically to prevent it from overcharging.

It's not just for phones though!  I wonder if I could stick one on my 40 meter dipole to get it to tune up on 80 meters? Ok, I'd have to replace it every 60 days, but, it might be worth it, no?

They should probably work on their grammar before even trying to lie to people. "sticked on..." !? This sounds like a child wrote it.

I had aHS substitute teacher who spent the hour about pyramids kept razors and other stuff straight.he had an entire class laughing at him ::)

but seriously, if I buy a bunch and stack them then It would last forever, right?
