Just remember to do all the basic ones.

Standing on it
Driving over it
Dropping from a height

Forget the exciting awesome ways, start with the basics and move from there.

Already thought of doing that.

Also, please keep in mind that I only have one of these to test with (I have a second one but that's for a giveaway). So I need to keep the super-destructive stuff until last

If you've got access to a car press or anything high pressure that'll work.

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


*raises eyebrow*

Wouldn't this apply to all MicroSD cards? No moving parts should ensure they are shock proof. The lack of a magnetic storage medium should ensure they are all magnet-proof. As long as they aren't wet while on I would assume they are all waterproof as well...

Yeah you're right. Which is why it'll test it against a normal SD card.

Also, the shockproof image shows someone stepping on it, and the casing appears to be metal from looking at it through the packaging

Copy some pron on to it, freeze it in to an icecube and then add it to a glass of whiskey/port/tipple of choice

Then you can say you are enjoying a glass of classy pron whilst testing the card, but don't swallow it :D


you could also test it in ways that might actually happen irl, drive over it, step on it, leave it overnight outside in the rain.

Throw it from a second/third floor window
Shoot it with a bow/gun/catapult (shoot it from a catapult)
