- 6x 30mm disc RFID Tags
- 2x Credit card sized RFID Tags
- 2x Keyfob RFID Tags

Similarly, Texas Instruments

glad I could be of service!
Hopefully kits like this will help some enterprising soul come up with a portable RFID blocker or zapper - before they're banned.
Come on, people. You could help us protect our privacy and make a mint at the same time!
Hi ! Do you know if a volt surge will kill the RFID?
James, probably you'd have to induce the surge with a strong magnetic field (similar to how shops can burn out their RFID tags at point of purchase). But yes, I think a surge kills most electronics :-)
Hey there is a product that does kill the RFID chip but they havn't released the information on what it looks like or how it kills the chip. I wonder if it can be banned. I read this on zombiewire.com
