    Can we just buy the powertags and use an android phone to write to it or do we need the powersaves device as well?

    no one has clearly stated if the Datel Powersaves for Amiibo NFC reader/writer could write to blank NFC tags using Namiio or the Powersaves software which i hope someone could clarify this.

    Regarding purchasing Powertags separately for use with an NFC-enabled android phone without the actual Powersaves device is a gamble, you are better off getting the Powersaves+Powertags together i think.

    Or just order blank NFC tags and use it with Tagmo or Amiibitz using your android NFC-enabled phone which i think is easier and cheaper.

    Anyway, i ordered thru EBay the Powersaves+Powertag and 10pcs blank NFC ntag215 stickers via Aliexpress and hopefully i could get the said items soon. The wait is killing me.

    As soon as i get them, i will try to experiment with it and let you guys know..

    Thank you for this tip. I went ahead and ordered a ten pack. Came out to $35 shipped to the US. I plan to add a thin strip of Velcro to this and make little printed and laminated cards to set on top that I can switch out as needed.

    You can't write to anowertag with an android device. It seems
    Something inside the writer and powertag need to talk to one another.

    My stickers arrive Monday. I'll be able to test if the data tel device can write to these stickers as well and report back.

    So does the Namiio software work directly with the powersaves pad and puck?

    Cause using it sounds a lot easier. XD

    Hello, can you please confirm Tagmo with a PowerTag works? I don't seem to make it work using a OnePlus One, but it may be the wrong apk version I guess... Thanks!

    The Powersaves software, just like the N2Elite software cannot write to the blank nfc stickers.

    Using stickers with Namiio. Not powersave software. My stickers are still out for delivery. Not confident I'll have them today.

    you think using the Namiio software with the Powersaves device will work with blank ntag215s?

    The Namiio, power saves, and N2Elite all use emulated technology not actual NTAG215 chips. Maybe if you found some hacked version of the software specifically designed to write to NTAG215s it might work... but its not going to work using the off the shelf software meant to write to an emulating device.

    So just to confirm before I buy this, it can be used like Amiiqo to download and store amiibo on a tag using this method?

    Yes. One per tag per flash.

    Hi, can you please develop on how the powertag and TagMo works together? Nobody else seems to be able to write a functional powertag (used on a console) with Tagmo

    Been trying to write to a Power Tag with TagMo 2.3.4 Beta on a Nexus 9 (Android 7.1.1) and the app crashes.
    If I write a bin using the PowerSaves base, TagMo is able to read and save it.

    Edit: Tried a Samsung A5, its writing something to the Tag but the Wii U is unable to read it.
