Tell the kids to play with them whilst standing in front of your 2 grand plasma, see if they can juggle...

Magnets, should be banned..

why waste money buying magnets? I just rip them from old hard drives, they are very strong and powerful!

I love magnets, could have at least a couple of seconds of fun with these.

Rare Earth magnets are used alot in flashlight/torches that take rechargeable lithium-ion batteries that don't have the "bump" on the positive terminal. They are electrically conductive and stay in place. Have a look at some of the flashlights and batteries on the rest of the site.

However, 10mm is very big as there is a possibility that it could come in contact with the body of the flashlight and short out the lithium-ion battery .....eeek..... not good!

Seems to have sparked a magnetic storm, this one :whistling:

Did no-one here see that prog on TV about all the kids that have swallowed these small powerful magnets? They are just about the most dangerous things you could have if there are kids about.

Once in the gut they attract each other and make holes in the intestines, bowel etc....the surgeons said the damage resembled bad gunshot wounds. One child has died. Beware.
http://www.channel4.com/news/articles/dispatches/how+safe+are+your+christmas+toys/1185352
Dispatches reveals that many top-selling toys incorporate a type of tiny but powerful magnet, a component that the toy companies now know can kill and seriously injure children who swallow them.

Dispatches has tracked down details of dozens of children around the world injured after swallowing this type of magnet. One of the first victims tells Dispatches that in 2000 when she was nine years old she collapsed and started vomiting green bile after accidentally swallowing twelve of these tiny magnets while pretending they were lip studs. Doctors told her mother that she would have died without an emergency operation.

Interviewed by Dispatches, the surgeon who saved her life said he was surprised and shocked the magnets are still being used. 'Obviously toy manufacturers don't read medical literature."

But she wasn't the only victim. Over a period of three months in 2000 doctors in the same city in the UK treated 23 other children in the casualty department who had injured themselves whilst playing with magnets. The medical team were so alarmed they wrote three papers for leading medical journals to warn of the dangers posed by these magnets.

Toy magnets kill young boy
Alarms sounded that a magnetic toy was dangerous. The federal agency charged with toy safety didn't act. Neither did the toy's manufacturer. Not until a boy died.

Watch the vid here:

Meanwhile, the three year old is recovering from surgery at Poudre Valley Hospital after doctors removed five magnets and cut out six inches of his small intestine.


This refers to magnets in toys, but the thin disc magnets are just as dangerous.

Neodymium iron boron magnets are not toys.

They are generally massively powerful, and extremely brittle. Its likely each of these small magnets could have the strength to lift a push bike (which I saw done in a video)

If they break in the field of another magnet sharp spiked metal shrapnel stands a 50% chance of being repelled across the area. Imagine how having sharp jagged bits of metal the size of sugar grains removed from between your eye and the lid/socket or larger bits stabbing into your eye.

Or imagine it happening to your child - as they would never think anything you would give them to play with could be dangerous.

Magnets that are toys are normally far weaker and coated.

If they are this strong then would they be suitable as fridge magnets - surely you would be unable to pull them back off the fridge again.
#18
This thread should be deleted.

These are dangerous and shouldn't be flagged up as a Deal.
#19
I bought these a while ago and have had no problems with them. They are strong for their size, but not capable of lifting a bike certainly. And their power only extends about 5mm.

I dropped one onto my tile kitchen floor, and it didn't break, so they seem fairly robust.

If people want to ban the thread because if people do stupid things with them it can be dangerous, we need to ban memory card threads, as they can also be dangerous if swallowed.
#20
Get your children to swallow a few and ,when you go shopping, wear a suit of armour.............this will keep the kids permanently close by and result in a stress free trip:thumbsup:
#21
Don't know if these are cheap or not but cannot see much use for them so voted cold
#22
Try searching for them on eBay. The auctions all contain warnings.

Rare earth magnets are **** for things like "stick tickets to your car window". A small slip and they'll shatter the glass easily. You want a normal magnet for something like that.

I don't think the post needs deleting. it just needs a clear warning that these are NOT TOYS and should never be put where children can reach them. Just like medication and religion.
#23
Ive got admit I use these a lot from strong paper holders in my office - to hiding keys behind filing cabinets and under machine mudguards- great
#24
I've been using neodymium fridge magnets for years. Some clad in gaffer tape so that they've got a pull tab.
If you were to use each of those 1mm high magnets as an individual fridge magnet then you would have great fun trying to lift the magnet. Best to use them in grabbable sized stacks - or get a 2-3mm thick square magent and use it edge on.
They are indeed very brittle - if you play with them and let two magnets ping together, which happens at incredibly high speed, then they will deliver schrapnel - so I only played once - I lie, twice, the second time when I was using my hand to stop the pinging, I got a blood blister.
Not for kids (or naughty adults like me)
#25
This is a pretty good deal and I have bought a set as I use magnets a lot. This is a good deal for anyone looking for magnets, like me.

Clearly they are not toys, nor should they be given to children at all, and yes, there are dangers, but it is still a good deal for people who need small powerfull magnets.

What is with the PC brigade on this?? I am a Parent and it goes without saying that I keep dangerous items away from my Child. Duh! I don't require anyone to censor threads on my behalf or anyone else's behalf that is responsible for children. Jeez - take a chill pill, just make sure it is not the mini magnets next to the pills that you swallow :yawn:
#27
I bought some of these recently to help find stud walls. powerful but would look for a thicker size e.g 3mm as these can break easily.
#28
I don't see what the fuss is about. I'm a parent and I'll be getting some of these to use as a little science demonstration of magnetics. Under my supervision of course. :roll:

Any kids swallowing these live up to Darwin's theory. As for the LED throwies, what happens when the batteries run out?

Voted hot getting some to go with my magnetic paint in my new office.

I dont know if mine are the same but a few years aago whilst working at WHSmith i took some magnets off some POS and stuck them together, found that when all stuck together they are really powerfull, made the mistake of playing with them near my laptop, one got stuck near the Hard drive bay and i completely ****** the HD

I do the same lol they are cool

dont forget its DX, dont expect your order anytime soon, i love the fact that any dx deal gets hot, might aswell add everything they sell on here?

A lot of mine came broken, filed a ticked on dealextreme but they never replied. Normally they have good service.


I've seen pictures of the jiffy envelopes (on DX forum) that people have received with large tears in the corner, and an empty bag.
Obviously the magnets got stuck on the sorting machines or something, and i don't think they package them well enough really.

The led stops glowing. They are meant to be a one time thing.
I wonder what happens to the magnets though (afaik they are permanent magnets). The owner of the building must get annoyed with silver magnets littered all up the walls.

You're assuming that everybody has a pile of old hard drives that they can destroy? :? Also, hard drive magnets may be too powerful for some tasks.
#36
I got some of these and had them near my laptop and was just pulling them apart while I was bored one day and about half dropped on the keyboard and slid to the bottom of the screen. I thought they'd simply stuck to a fixing in the hinge, but as I swiped the magnets off, the screen lost its backlight, then the video dropped and I was left with a non-functioning screen.

As you'd expect I was rather worried about my little laptop, but after a restart it worked fine ><

I'd recommend having a play with some strong magnets, but not these - they cause too many problems and, even as an adult, have no end of dangers :(
#37
They're extremely fragile....you won't be able to separate them and let them re-attach without the risk of them braking and apparently you get the odd one or two broken ones when they arrive....Some quotes from reviews....

"They are very strong and fun to play around with. I put one on the ground and dangled another over it to see if it would fly up from the magnetic force. It did, the only problem was the magnet that flew (1 inch) was broken into pieces on contact. "

"Very thin so they're very easy to accidentally break, hard to get apart from eachother without breaking one/chipping one"

Best use em for projects rather than just playing around with....get some Oidz if you just want some magnets to play with since they're meant for slamming into each other so wont brake when they do....still dangerous to electrical devices though. >_<
