So I received my supposedly "indestructible" SD cards today in the post. I'm going to be posting up a video review showing ways that I will be testing the strength of the cards.

However I need you guys to come up with some cool ideas for things I should do to try and destroy them.

Any ideas are welcome and will be considered but ridiculous ones will obviously not be attempted.

Note: I almost forgot, they are Samsung microSD cards rated as "waterproof, shockproof and magnet-proof"

Might do this towards the end. I don't own a Blendtec blender and I hope I don't ruin my existing one

Blowtorch :devil:


Unfortunately I don't own one :blushing:

If there's enough sunlight out, how about putting it under a magnifying glass in extreme sunlight/heat?

They're metallic-cased as far as I can tell so unfortunately microwaving them would be dangerous

I will definitely be boiling them up though, great suggestion

And I will attempt burning them using the sun but it hasn't been all that sunny here recently

A simple and inexpensive propane torch will do the trick.
