I really want these however after speaking to an artist about it briefly today I've been the autoclave apparently destroys the power of the magnet and therefore told the magnets can't be sterilized? So what's the deal with that?

would that work just as well as heat sterilization?

the magnet is inside the silicone though, the heat from the autoclave weakens the magnet...
I'm reading up about the rates of these things failing at the moment though.... So far it's not looking so positive :(

Its true, the magnetic implant is not autoclaved. However, upon reading up on Neodymium Iron Boron Magnets, it appears that the material has a curie temperature of 310-400 degrees Celsius. This is the temp at which it starts to lose strength. Standard autoclaves go up to about 134 degrees celcius if i'm not mistaken.

I will ask my artist about this at some point soon, but in addition to silicone and neodymium, you must remember that there is a thing gold coating. Perhaps this has to do with it. Maybe the silicone? I have no idea on either.

Make sure you are not reading about the history of the mod, and not the current version. In the past they were dipped in silicone, now they are mold injected. I have met several persons with perfectly find Magnetic Implants

I don't even notice my magnet anymore... like, it's been in there for over two years now and i guess the vibration has just become as normal, everyday as any other sense...

Yeah I was reading about the old ones but there doesn't seem to be much written about the newer version?
I'm still curious about this sterilization issue....

Jesykka, which type did you have implanted? Did you ever have any problems with them? And do they still work? By that I mean can you still pick up objects, or has the power completely left them?
