I used a simple magnetic field sensor to find out that the magnetic field from the Kenko PowerChip magnet reaches about twice as far as the discontinued Nikken Mini magnet. Nikken did this by placing the magnetic fields from several magnets in opposition to each other within the design of the PowerChip to get the overall magnetic field to reach from the surface of the magnet.
What’s New With the Nikken Power Chip
The red and green Nikken Power Chip magnets have been discontinued. The black Kenko PowerChip is still available.
A spinning magnet will throw the magnetic field much farther than a stationary magnet. The Magboy and MagCreator are great examples of this. Nikken took this one step farther with the Biaxial magnets. They spun a magnet on two axes to create a large sphere of dynamically changing magnetic fields. This turned out to be very effective.
The downside to the Biaxial magnets is that they require a power source, they had to have batteries or be plugged into the wall. They aren’t easy to incorporate into a pad or patch that you can stay active with.
That brought about the RAM disk that is a part of the Naturest mattress toppers and pillow and the new SpyderRAM magnet arrangement in the travel pillow. They were the first attempt to duplicate the effect of the dynamic Biaxial magnetic field in a static magnetic disk.
Now Nikken has come up with something new again and is calling it DynaFlux Magnetic Technology. Like the RAM disks, it uses multiple magnets. This time the poles are placed in opposition, north facing north and south facing south, to intensify the magnetic field and produce a magnetic field that extends farther from the surface.
The new Kenko PowerChip is currently the only item that features this new DynaFlux magnetic technology. The Nikken PowerChip is also a TriPhase device like the PowerBands. This means that in addition to the magnetic technology, it also features Nikken’s far-infrared technology and negative ion technology.
You can find additional information in the product description and the Quick Reference Sheet (QRS) on Nikken’s Kenko PowerChip page.
