Pocket-size zapper now available at an attractive price point. It's smaller, has stronger components, a larger coil, more caps and capacity, overbuilt in every way.

Only needs one zap to fully saturate ceramic magnets. Five seconds to charge.

$199.

Discounts for tracks available.

Any way to adapt it for open frame motors with Alnico magnets - Pittman and the like?

I'm not familiar with these magents. If you send me a sample I will be happy to do some testing.

For the guys who inquired the Polyneo zapper is through testing and is now functional.

I'm working on a smaller enclosure but should be taking orders next week.

In more recent pocket size ceramic units I adjusted the charge time for this unit to 16 seconds, added 3 more caps and improved the coil design.

Are these for pro slot 16d motors or 4002FK motors?

You mentioned above that they could be used for polyneo magnets like those in FK motors. Is that still true? Thanks...

Sorry to show my ignorance, but I guess one zapper cant do both? Guess there is no such thing as switchable circuitry that allows the user to switch from ceramic mags to neos/cobalts? Thanks...

Ceramic are relatively easy to zap. I am wondering how can a small zapper zap rare earth magnets, my understanding is that lotsa energy is required to do that
