26 January 2017 Question by: Rapid Customer | Product code: 34-0915
Q. What is magnetic pull force of these connectors?
A. Hi Toby, thank you for your question. Please see the supplier's response: "Magnet to magnet contact pull force is approx. 3.75kg - at a distance of 10mm this reduces to 0.44kg".


08 March 2016 Question by: Rapid Customer | Product code: 34-0915
Q. can this be used for 12volt
A. Hi Daniel, thank you for your question. This will be fine to run off 12V DC.


13 December 2013 Question by: Rapid Customer | Product code: 34-0915
Q. Are these available as 2 conductor?
A. Hi Scott. Thank you for your question. These are just a single connect and are not available as a double connection.


09 April 2013 Question by: Rapid Customer | Product code: 34-0915
Q. is the conductor flexible or solid cable
A. Hi Colin. Thank you for your question. The conductor is made of a very flexible single solid-core conductor.


09 April 2013 Question by: Rapid Customer | Product code: 34-0915
Q. Hi is the the conductor shown insulated or bare
A. Hi Colin. Thank you for your question. The conductor is bare.


02 April 2013 Question by: Rapid Customer | Product code: 34-0915
Q. hi, i am looking to make multiple small connections using magnetic connectors such as these, however i need to know the dimentions of the magnets to enshore i can fit them in the space i have. what is the diameter and depth of these magents? thanks
A. Hi Chris, thanks for your question. The diameter of these magnets is 6mm and the depth is 5mm.


23 January 2013 Question by: Rapid Customer | Product code: 34-0915
Q. Hi, I want to know if this MAGTAG connector has two isolated conductors.
A. Hi Susana. Thank you for your question. The conductors are not isolated from the magnets on these products.


04 June 2012 Question by: Rapid Customer | Product code: 34-0915
Q. Hi ,would these items be suitable for adapting the power input connection to a laptop?.Many thanks, Peter.
A. Hi Peter, thanks for your question about the magnetic connectors. The contacts have an 8A capacity – but no voltage max is listed, so care must be taken as the leads are exposed normally.


28 December 2011 Question by: Rapid Customer | Product code: 34-0915
Q. I am doing some toy modeling. I am needing a way to run electricity through a modeled multi-level building in such a way that the floors of the building can be taken apart for kids to play with...but still have wiring run to the top floors to have lighting work. The lighting is LED Lighting powered by AAA batteries. Would this item work to make the power connection when the model is together...but allow it to be easily taken apart when kids are playing?
A. Thanks for your enquiry Clayton. Yes this product would be suitable for your needs.

Great for interconnecting model railway boards

Reviewed by: Andrew - 21 August 2015
I used two pairs to interconnect my model railway boards; I use DCC so only 2 wires need to travel between boards. Works well - remember that they should be used in pairs.

Uses for MAgTags in the physics lab

Reviewed by: Richard Walder - 09 October 2014
I have found these devices very useful as a means of making mechanical connections to steel masses in various physics experiments. MagTags can be used to connect an oscillating soft iron core situated within a solenoid. Two springs Mag Tagged to the top and bottom of a cylindrical iron or steel core are clamped at the top and connected to a vibration generator on the bench below. By threading the mass through a coil and connecting the vibration generator to a signal generator the movement of a mechanical system can be converted to an electrical output and thus monitored by an oscilloscope as the vibrating springs, magnets, mass combination oscillates inside the hollow coil. At one particular frequency the mass will resonate with a large amplitude. Changing the mass will alter the resonant frequency. MagTags can be used for making a simple single axis seismometer using a similar method of employing a coil / mass on a spring responding to the bench being thumped.They are also good in replacing the weak magnet in the Worcester current balance kit

Heatsink them while soldering

Reviewed by: Matthew - 01 August 2012
(This is experience of a very similar product from another supplier, hope that's OK here) Do remember to heatsink the wire during soldering, e.g. using a pair of pliers. I trashed the first one with soldering heat - magnet badly weakened.
