    Oh my, I guess that was back when I ordered them before I knew about the different tags. Welp.

    From what I've heard, it either doesn't work or corrupts the NTAG. I guess the PowerDiscs have something unique in them?

    Does anyone actually know what it is? It's pretty interesting-- NTAGs can be written only once as an Amiibo. But those can be written an indefinite amount of times, and still be recognized as an Amiibo. What's the magic?

    This is it, there's nothing under it, just adhesive to stick it onto the top. :/

    That's crazy. It just looks like a regular NTAG215. I wonder what their special tech is. Thanks for looking!

    I ordered a pack of 25 for $14.99+free shipping, and they got delivered here today. Giving that seller 5 stars for fast 2-day delivery.

    It's not worth it, you'll be spending over a minimum of $70 for a phone that has NFC. You'd rather go for amiiqo or a cheaper version, powersaves amiibo.
