Luxe's Magnets?

How do these STRONG magnets not affect the internal board of the gun...Also I don't like the idea of keeping high powered magnets in my gun bag as usually I store my cell/ipod there also

The only thing that has magnets are the Eye Covers which obviously aren't close to the board at all.

I doubt they are strong enough to affect any electronic equipment stored around the gun.

Actually, the body of the gun acts as a shield, so these magnets won't interfere with the board.

in reality magnets don't do much to electronics. hard drives(which the luxe doesn't have but your mp3 player might) are different than most electronics and can be effected by magnets.

The magnet will not effect anything. They are basically the same as used in triggers, just 2 of them. I stole one of the testing guns to play with this past weekend.

When stationary the magnetic fields are much less likely to harm things. It's mainly when the move that problems happen.

magnets rock...

This man knows what he's talking about. And so do the people who designed and built the gun.
