Of all the tricks I have bought, Penomenon was the biggest disappointment. I don't mind paying something for a great secret, but there has to be a correlation between the price and the secretness of the secret. At $5 or $6 bucks I wouldn't care, but $19 was ridiculous.

I bought both, got the pen to work a few times. Fun to play with but not exactly practical. I thought the "charger" was just plain dumb.

I have them both & use them often, penomenon you can find in tarbell as it has been said, the em pocket charger works quite well for me & I live in a very high humidity city.

I can't picture any spectator with half a brain would be fooled in the slightest. The pocket charger also does not improve the effect - sometimes the pen does not even move! Also, the charger really does look like a joke, especially for the price...

This is the worst trick I have ever purchased - with regards to the PRICE. I am glad, I didn't burn my money on the EM-PC.

Greg Wilson's funny anecdote about driving two hours and fighting traffic to watch a pen move motivated this purchase. At least I had a good chuckle for $25.00

I have both the Penomenon and Pocket Charger, I think the idea is good. But sometimes work sometimes not work. If yoy buy only the pen, you can not use it peeeeefectly, the preparation need before you do the tirck, and you cannot leave it for long time after it prepared.

For me, the pen and charger works. Sometimes there's enough residual left, so that if you ask a spectator to pass their hand over the pen, it will move! The specs response is often audible and they dive for the pen. The charger makes this possible. If nothing happens, what did they expect?

I think its rubbish and does not always work, The advert is totally misleading, its impossible to repeat it in front of an audience unless you go to the gents room to do the necessary charge. Overpriced, overhyped. I sent mine back got a full refund.

The EmPC does work,why you would have to leave the audiance is not understandable for me, the recharge(if neccesary) can be done by simply placing the pen back in your pocket. My pen is carried in my inside jacket pocket the placement & removal is all very natural. Once while strolling a guy walked up to me & said here do it with my pen, I said sure be more than happy too, then took his pen stuck it in my pocket walked away & said "remind me later this evening" & walked away with his pen everyone laughed I then turned around said just joking & did the effect it worked w/o a hitch. One person's junk is another person's trasure.

I found my Em pocket charger the other day, I forgot how great it works. In combination with the really cheap pens from the dollar store, I'm getting some amazing movement.
