The hardest thing about the removal process is, trying to locate the the actual chip before you start the extraction process.
A very bright torch is good to shillouette it.
Pretty much write off getting the antenna out intact.
“do not tap ring with sharp object, as it may cause damage” -Back of the Instruction pamphlet
Yea /: idk. it sounds more for the “modern man on the go” instead of a “working man” sort of deal, I will definitely not be wearing it to work, but I already keep a debit card in my id lanyard for easy payments while on the job.
Dont get me wrong, they are still pretty sturdy, I would say they would take a decent knock from a hammer, My main implement of destruction was a vice so that I could control the destruction.
It took a substantial amount of pressure before the first crack emerged
yes, that i could successfully extract a chip from a porcelain ring.
It was a T5577 that I was going to mess with and maybe get amal to do a custom job ( This was long before the Flex EMs were a thing )
I broke the antenna though, I could still read it through most of the extraction, breakage happened right toward the end.
I’m pretty sure I binned it, but I can have a look for it if you want to look at a mess of copper wire, chip and porcelain
The only thing holding me back from a card conversion implant is Implantation and removal cost. I don’t mind having to get a new one every three years, but putting things in and then taking them out seems a bit too overzealous for me, mind you ill still be using the money for more implants XD just some that will last me longer
