or get Powersaves for Amiibo, the one with the Powertag included, you can put 1 amiibo on the Powertag at a time, but it's rewritable and only like £20, works fine for me

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/PowerSav...902584&hash=item3ae1eceee8:g:RY8AAOSw2olZdeC3

This one comes with Powertag as you can see on the box

You can buy Powertags separate too If you need to, you can get 3 for £10 or 10 for £25, but 1 is enough

I have the PowerSaves for Amiibo with the PowerTag, and while it's convenient, the PowerTag feels too light and cheap. I might pry it open and hot-glue a few pennies inside, just to justify it. Otherwise, it's a fine product and pretty cheap, still cheaper than 2 full-priced Amiibo. Just make sure you backup the PowerTag after registering it in Splatoon 2, I already fucked up getting the rest of the power armor. ;_;

Arduino and nfc writer/reader... cost £10 delivered and use amiibomb software to write your tags.. cheaper then buying any nfc smartphone .

Most missing feature here with those Powertags is that I have no way of keeping them apart! Made some ugly looking stickers...

For my fake amiibos, I bought some 25mm NTAG215's, programmmed them with my Galaxy S7 phone using TagMo, and then bought some "26mm presidential dollar" coin cases, put the NTAG215 inside, and labeled them with my label maker like this:

I need to find some place where I can make vinyl colour stickers in the diameter of the PowerTags.
Your idea is functional! Only I love colours haha ;)
