    I have the Powersaves Amiibo with the powertag and I use it a lot but I used it earlier with breath of the wild amiibos one after the other about 20 times and for some reason now the powertag is not detected by any device including the Amiibo powersaves writer itself. Is it possible to over work the powertag and burn out the chip or something?

    Some people have reported that their powertag has indeed burnt out.

    I only use my for Wolf Link. Still waiting for my NTAG215s, to make custom ones.

    Surely that shouldn't happen? But then I don't know why I expected it to last forever o.O

    The powersaves software is meh, it has even fried legit amiibo.

    Rewriting likely. As stated it fried an amiibo once.
