So I’ve had the flexM1 in my hand for 2 days now, and trying it here and there with different cellphones, tabletop readers and locks to see how it behaves.
Turns out, with some readers, it’s no better than a glass implant, while I get a significant range increase and almost no problems finding the sweet spot with others, regardless of orientation. Very inconsistent results. It’s kind of a crapshoot: I’d say it yields glass implant-like performances with 1/3rd of the readers I’ve tried. I suppose this has something to do with the unusual aspect ratio of its coil.
Anybody else noticed it?
