Thumbs up Faraday Bag Tests



Advertise Here

So I joined the site mainly cause I wanted some help deciding if these faraday bags were legit. I got lots of great response and decided to make a purchase. I called the guy with some of the questions that I and others on here had. I recieved the bags yesterday and I ran some tests last night. I stuck in my turned on radio and it immediatly lost reception, I put my cell phone in a bag and called it, it wouldn't ring, then I stuck an ice cube in the small bag and threw it in an old microwave in my shop for one minute pulled the bag out and found a perfectly non melted ice cube still inside the bag. I also got out my snake doctor(similar to a tazer) and shocked the bag, the current went around the bag. I was sceptical at first but I think these bags are really gonna work.

I asked the guy if there was a need to bury or ground these bags. He said no, they've got four layers, a static dissipative coating, polyester, aluminum shield, and then a static dissipative polyethylene. They are conductive. He said these are made of the same material that the military is using to protect they're electronics and they're not burying there spare F-16 parts They are also water proof. They have a zipper seal but you can also iron them shut if you want.

I would recommend these to anyone. They are a little pricey but the guy gave me a coupon code FRIEND10 for 10% off. I'm throwin out my foil wrap, plastic, cardboard faraday box and stickin with these bags. The URL is techprotectbag.com if anyone else wants to buy.

Not that that discredits them. But it doesn't add much, from my perspective, either.

Dang nice find man. We can preserve some aspects of our modern life (which I would happily forget post DHTO) to an extent. I can see lots of flashlights and batteries in them.

I'm in the Air Force and so happen to work on F-16 electronics, we do have parts that come in anti static bags but they're not as reflective as these look from the picks. We don't shield against EMP with the bags we use just stray static electricity so he may be misleading you. For this price though I think I may try em out and test em a bit to see if that guy is telling you the truth. If they prove effective though well worth the 30 bucks for em. good find, thanks.

Had to post again, I just remembered some of our larger parts from the manufacturers do actually come in very thick reflective sealed packaging with a black inner layer so that may be what he's referring to. That stuff in heat sealed like a mylar bag we use to store preps in. That is usually used on the very large expensive parts so he may be right I may definitely order some now seeing as once I open a part at the shop the packaging isn't reusable I'm really curious now. Thanks again

Thanks for the info. My tests sure did work well. And it seemed as though he was making a joke about the F16 parts for an example but did cross reference the Military specification.

If you want to make a real test, get a cheap video card (try it out first to make sure it was actually working), Place it in a bag and put it in the microwave for a couple of minutes. If that works you can be pretty sure it will protect against EMP.

CAUTION!! I'm having to much fun testing these bags. Watch out while testing in the microwave and maybe use an old one that you don't care if it doesn't work anymore. You will see blue electrical arcs across the top of the bag. I just placed a working calculator inside the bag, put on my welders mask and gloves and pushed the start button. I let it run for 5 seconds, pulled out the calculator... still works (5x5=25). There was damage to the bag kinda a lightning bolt pattern towards the edges. Tried it one more time with the damaged bag and it worked again! I still have a working calculator, now on the other hand I'll have to see how long my microwave holds out. I'm pretty sure I've made a great investment.

I tried the site and it showed a dead site.

can you toss the link in again?

and I’m curious as to the difference in these bags and the ones I made from aluminum foil and the anti-static bags I get when I order my electronic parts.

my bags react the exact same way and mine were almost free.

Well there seems to be a poly conductive liner and insulator liner added but those would cost even less.

If you ordered your own from Uline and put it together you will probably be looking at about .50 plus shipping, more if you want something larger.

And you will have to order in bulk, say 1000 at a time.

But it certainly beats $5.95 per 8X8 bag.

I have seen those before on uline, looked into them, notice the thickness is 2.2mils and these bags are 7 mils thick. They don't have an EMI sheilding.
