Merry Christmas to you too, Deignan!

The lunch effect is the best of them all and ironically only uses one die .
Not only that it has no emphasis on the die which makes it perfect imo Gaz 🙂

I made three major magic/mentalism purchases this year: (1) Venom Cube, (2) Viper Wallet, and (3) Mental Dice. I love Venom Cube and, even more so, my Viper Wallet. However, Mental Dice is the best (and most expensive) magic/mentalism purchase I have ever made. As many in this forum have already commented, this product is awesome--from the packaging, to the routines, to the wireless charger, to the receiver, to the dice themselves. The receiver IMMEDIATELY registers the numbers that are rolled. And it is the perfect size (which allows it to be easily finger palmed or hidden inside a playing card box). The dice are gorgeous and look and feel completely normal. With the proper routining, no one should ever suspect that these are special dice. (And if you purchase the product from Alakazam USA, as did I, you will receive three sets of duplicate dice, which can be given away to your participants.)

In short, I cannot recommend Mental Dice highly enough. Well worth the investment.

See ya there! Smile

Would these side last a lifetime? This is what worries me with electronic effects at some point the battery life of the dice will weaken?

How old are you? Do you smoke? Do you bungeejump? Do you perform Smash and Stab with a rusty spike? We need data to answer your question!

I was just kidding. It was not a knock on your question, which I think it’s valid. Guys like Ustaad know a lot about battery life, maybe he’ll chime in.

Of course rechargeable batteries will weaken over time and will not last a lifetime.
Lifetime depends on the number of max. charge cycles, quality of components, your personal usage, how often you will use them and when you charge the batteries, their charge status and how you store them.
They hate deep discharge and permanent charging. To store them at 100% is also not a good idea.
Murphys should give you a information about max. charge cycles.

Btw. some non-rechargeable batteries have a tendency to last much longer than rechargeable batteries (with similar usage).

I highly doubt this product will last more than 5-6 years.
Storing electronic props in your drawer for a long time is the worst thing you can do!

I really hope this thread will move downstairs as it is open and can be easily found by search engines.

I honestly think if you get 2 years at $300 you’ve had your money’s worth.

Does this come with any warranty? I assume this comes with a plug for the charging etc?

You said it ALL . . . . . in one breath. Smile

However in the coming days, as I see it, electronic based magic props will no longer be popular (due to blatant exposure) and sooner than later, we will be forced to revert back to our good old conventional props but with much advanced routines, techniques and presentations. Magic as an ART shall remain an ART.

That hurts to say but you might be right.
It’s not just blatant exposure but also greediness that lead us to this point.
It should be of importance these days which thinktank we support.
Price should be no excuse for this decision. Support creators instead of greedy resellers.

PS: If a supercapacitor is used within these dice (i don’t think so but iam not sure) they act differently compared to a rechargeable battery.

Strangely, all things massively exposed can and are still being used in all kinds of performances...

I'd rather people didn't blab as much as they have on this thread, or support sites with knock offs on their shop page...

But neither of those things will stop. People will want to buy cheap and people will show off.
And that's before we get onto the subject of creativity, logic and the weirdness of certain people wanting to perform what everyone else does for fear of missing out...

I had mentioned about the Super-Capacitors and its characteristics elsewhere in this section. We can conveniently conclude that Tony Anverdi's Mental Dice don't have a Super-Capacitor as the Dice charging time is greater than 10 minutes (depending on the already available residual charge in the Dice battery). A Super-Capacitor will take around 5 minutes to charge. Thus the Mental Dice don't have a Super-Capacitor as its power source. And hence you are limited to about 300 to 500 charge/discharge cycle before the battery dies.

Love my Mental Dice. Performers of Bill Abbots No Brainer Casino routine can now predict the dice withouth the spectator having to call them out publicly ! A side note: My Samsung S6 has about 1500 load cycles now and is still going strong.
