I love performing this, but I don't perform it all the time. That's the only reason I give it 4
stars. Two things to consider are the following:
1) You have to be aware of is that wearing
this gimmick cancels out other things. You wear a the gimmick in one of your shoes, and if the
spectators focus there they will be able to see that things are not as they should be. This mean
that you won't be able to do a levitation, for example.
2) Buying this involves two extra
costs if you want to do this professionally. a) A pair of shoes reserved for this effect, and b)
paying to modify them (about $25 extra dlls). There's a quick fix option, but to do this well you
will have to modify a pair of shoes. Yigal will say that you can wear these shoes as normal, but my
experience is otherwise.
The only reason I write this is because I wish someone had told
me this. Having said so, I am very glad I have it, and I use it with very strong reactions. This is
the type of effect that raises you up in their mind as "the real thing."

I've had this thing for quite some time now (pretty much since the day it came out, which was around
April of 2013; I didn't buy it until April 22, 2013). Either way, I've had approximately 4-5 months
to test this thing out on the streets!!! Before I get to my review, I'd like to say that if you're
going to buy this JUST to shock people, then DON'T buy this as it is not meant solely for that
purpose. This is a utility device, when put into the hands of a magician that uses this wisely, will
create magic that is over the top/will get extreme and I mean EXTREMELY POWERFUL REACTIONS!!! I
would like to say thanks to ZOMBIE FROM THE MAGIC CAFE! I'VE BEEN A FAN OF HIS REVIEWS/HIS ADVICE
SINCE THE DAY HE JOINED THE CAFE! It's a shame that I have not decided to join the magic cafe as I
have been reading it since 2003 (regarding a box I was interested in). Ok, moving on, here's my
WOW.... Even with the added savings, this thing is
still quite expensive!! I mean... Thank god it's not at its regular price of $250.00, but at
$199.95, it's still very expensive!!!! At this price, is ET+ worth it??? My answer... YES!!!! OF
COURSE IT'S WORTH IT!! AT $199.95 THIS THING IS FANTASTIC!!! THE PRICE ALONE WILL KEEP IT OUT OF THE
HANDS OF THOSE WHO ARE JUST CURIOUS ABOUT HOW IT WORKS AND NOT ONLY THAT, IT'LL PREVENT SOME
MAGICIANS FROM PURCHASING THIS, THUS IT WILL BE IN THE HANDS OF SERIOUS PERFORMERS and not in the
hands of those who go HERE IS HOW IT WORKS!!! I'd also like to say that the M.S.R.P. that Yigal
Mesika has decided to sell this at, is very reasonable for what you're getting. You can see the
quality of this device from the packaging to the actual gimmick itself and you CAN'T just go to your
garage and slap this together (ideally... you could make one yourself, but I highly doubt it'll be
as small a gimmick and as powerful as the one that Yigal offers in the ET+). In short, spend the
$199.95; you get the concept/method, handlings/tips/ideas from the genius himself and the
professionally made gimmick!!!
Overall rating: 5/5
comes in a blue cardboard (slide-out) type of box that is all shrink-wrapped. Upon undoing the
shrink wrap and sliding out the contents on the inner "drawer" like box, I felt the impression or
professionalism/quality as everything was neatly packaged and just fits perfectly into the box! I
can also tell by the quality of the items included.
Very organized, very well presented and
very well packaged! I'm very impressed with the nice elegant looking box! Very well done Mr. Mesika!
Overall rating: 5/5
I must have watched this thing at least a
dozen times just to see the spectators reactions LOL. Yigal Mesika goes into depth on how to set
this up. He explains the two methods of setup (one of which he prefers you to do and the other which
he explains you could do, but is more less used for experimenting with the ET+). The DVD includes
various tips/ideas/handling methods, what to do and what not to do, and he even does this out on the
streets!!! SOME of the things he will teach you include: TRANSFERRING ELECTRICITY TO OTHERS, USING
ELECTRICITY TO SHOCK YOUR SPECTATOR, ZAPPING SOMEONE WITH YOUR FOREHEAD, LIGHTING A LIGHT TUBE,
CHARGING OBJECTS AS WELL AS MOVING SALT/PEPPER, BENDING WATER AND GETTING THINGS TO STICK TO
WALLS!!! VERY EXCITING STUFF!!!! He has also included LIVE PERFORMANCES WHICH ARE GOLDEN!!! THIS WAS
THE BEST PART AS IT ENCOURAGED ME TO ACTUALLY USE THIS AND IT GAVE ME AN INSIGHT AS WHAT TO EXPECT
WHEN I PERFORM THE ROUTINES ON THE DVD/HOW HE HANDLES HIS SPECTATORS. IT ENGAGED THE LEARNING
PROCESS AND MADE ME EVEN MORE INTERESTED!!! Showing live performances on a DVD is great!!!! The fact
is, the tricks that I buy that don't have live performances generally tell me that they can't have
live performances due to the trick being too unpractical/maybe they couldn't get a live performance
due to the trick being poor. Now, having said that, there are a few trick in my arsenal that don't
have live performance footage, but are killer and I mean KILLER when I use them.
a job well done Mr. Mesika! Everything on this DVD is GOLDEN!!! Btw, I love the routine that Mr.
Mesika teaches on here when he sends the spectator a card by simply touching the spectator's
forehead! The spectator can then name the card sent to them. THIS IS PURE GENIUS!!!!! XD
Overall rating: 10/5 (Yes, that's over 100%! Why?! Because he included LIVE, MIND BLOWING,
EXTREME REACTIONS PERFORMING THIS OUT ON THE STREETS!!!!)
Lastly... THE ET+ (As Well As The
Additional Gimmicks Supplied With It!):
The ET+ is a VERY WELL DESIGNED/UTILITY GIMMICK
THAT WILL LAST A LIFETIME! (Just be aware that a part of the ET+ is constructed from a type of
crystal glass which acts as a switch. In short, be very, VERY CAREFUL not to break this as this is
what turns the ET+ on and off. Watch out for this, and the gimmick/utility prop will LAST YOU
FOREVER! I should know, because I still use and own the original ET). The ET+ is very well designed,
gives a powerful super shock, has an optional off, low or high setting, and plainly... It's just
super awesome!!! It's SMALL, UNNOTICEABLE, AND SUPER POWERFUL, making this FANTASTIC!!! Also, you
get more shocks per battery (along with a more powerful shock) when compared to that of the original
ET. I have had a friend design his own, however, it's too big/bulky/noticeable and doesn't even come
close to the super powerful shock that the ET+ gives off (on the other hand, he did save quite a bit
of cash LOL). Also included are additional gimmicks which consist of: 4 batteries, the housing for
the ET+ (WHICH IS NOW COATED AND PROTECTED FROM RUST!!!! (Unlike the old design)), some special
tape, written instructions, and advertising (Hope I didn't forget anything LOL). The ET+ and the
additional gimmicks supplied with it are of high, professional quality!!! This is definitely a step
forward in design as well as quality when compared to that of the old ET.
10/5 again!!! (Why?? BECAUSE IT HAS MORE POWER, A BETTER DESIGN, MORE SHOCKS PER BATTERY AND THE
ADDITIONAL IMPORTANT GIMMICK IS COATED AGAINST RUST!!!!).
IN SHORT, MOST SUPER HIGHLY
RECOMMENDED!!! IF YOU CAN AFFORD THIS, BUY IT RIGHT NOW!!!! THIS WILL PAY FOR ITSELF GIVEN YOUR
TIME, EFFORT AND PATIENCE! I AM NOW KNOWN TO HAVE SUPER POWERS!!!! XD
-C.G. (I normally
don't leave my name or initials in public, but I have to this time!!! I WANT ALL MY FELLOW MAGICIANS
THAT KNOW ME/WHO VISIT THIS SITE TO BROWSE THE REVIEWS, TO KNOW THAT IT IS ME AND I DO SUPER HIGHLY
RECOMMEND THIS ONE!!!).

WATCH THE DVD AND READ THE WRITTEN INSTRUCTIONS!
They are very thorough and if you follow
each step carefully, The Electric Touch Plus will work perfectly, right out of the box.
used the temporary setup and it works exactly as advertised. On the trailer, Yigal showed
re-directing the water stream from the faucet into a glass. I tired it and It works. It's such a
weird to experience to be able to do that type of magic. If you had magic gifts, this would be the
type of thing you could do. It's the perfect effect to perform at a house party when they ask "can
you show us something"? It's a reputation maker!
The dvd shows MANY performances on the
street, so you get a good collection of ideas to use. Electric Touch is a tool to accent powerful
magic such as the Invisible Deck, Brainwave Deck, spoon bends, floating bills, etc.
old question " what do I say when they ask how did I do that " can be answered with the Electric
Touch Plus. Tell them the truth! Say "I have static electricity running through my body" and hold
out your finger for them to touch and they will FEEL it!
On the trailer you hear the
electric charge. That's not a special effect. You can actually hear it when someone touches you! The
reactions are unbelievable!
The Electric Touch Plus is a powerful magic apparatus that will
take you magic to the next level!

This device is almost exactly the same as the original one with the exception of it being noticeably
stronger and supposedly it will last longer. There are a few things to consider. Firstly obviously
this is not for everyone. I do not recommend this for a sponge ball style comedy magician. The
devices strength will vary from place to place. The first venue I performed it in the result was a
very strong shock. Napkins and tobacco were jumping like crazy. If you do any kind of mentalism this
is an extremely powerful tool. I was approached by several people and asked if I have super natural
powers after the demonstration (and a few other effects like invisible touch) You must have an
answer prepared when asked this question and you cannot skirt the issue by saying its psychological
suggestion. Part of your routining MUST incorporate an interesting response for this question
without scamming people. Lastly the device is fragile. You must be careful on stairs and never drive
with it as the most fragile part of the device will be hitting the floor. One must also be aware it
will not last forever. It has a 1 year warranty which only covers if the device is not damaged by
You basically have a glass switch on the back of your heel. That said be aware of that and
you will have no problems.

I am a professional mentalist and an electronics engineer. I had the first ET and been working with
it for a long time. It was only natural for me to get the new model, as I was expecting a more
silent way of operation and a sturdier construction. Let me tell you, this device is a piece of art
- it literally allows you to take any mental effect to the next level. I have had many spectators
believe in transference of thoughts via static energy. They actually felt their thoughts materialize
thru the spark, it gives them "proof" for it! I combine it with my billet work and metal bending
routines and it's just great. The possibilities are endless...
The construction of the device is
marvelous, a lot of engineering work was put into it and it shows. It is more silent by far, has a
stronger spark and it looks much more durable than the first model. I am very happy for my purchase,
and it indeed gives my walk around mentalism set an unbelievably strong impact. It gets my highest

Hello to everyone
I perform as a Hypnotist,Mentalism and Magician, I purchased this device
shortly after the launch,i have used the first electric touch unit as well and this is much much
I would like to give everyone an honest review of this unit In My Opinion.
Without giving away any of the secrets heres a few tips on things that i did as soon as i got
Changed the power source to a more reliable brand (Energizer or Duracel). (this seemed
to maximize the unit).
DONT even bother with temporary setup.
DO the professional setup
made right away (this only cost me $11)
Made a special "sock" to hold everything in place where
it supposed to stay.
I have used this on carpet,hard wood, concrete,Laminate,inside and
outside everywhere and it has worked perfectly without any issues.
I have used this device with
many people, As a performer you should focus on audience management and presentation and you wont
have any issues with the people you use the device with.
This is a remarkable device all around
ive done full one hour shows with this thing on without any problems.
The only downside was
shipping for me.
I paid almost $30 for shipping which wasnt bad and i didnt mind,(i live in
Canada) and the shipping was fast!(Only 3 days).
However when the parcel showed up it was
Friday, they wanted another $37 before they would give me my parcel,and i didnt have cash and they
made me wait until Monday before i could pick the parcel up!!
BUT DONT WAIT ADD TO CART!
THIS THING IS AMAZING

After trying the device with a few pairs of shoes in order to get the best results I am extremely
happy with my purchase. It is in fact stronger than the previous model, which I also have and have
had for several years. If you know how to use the original Electric Touch then you can jump right
into the Plus. The housing unit is very important when it comes to making the best use of the
device. I even used it in the temporary setup in order to test my shoes. When I buy a new pair to
have altered then it will be even more fantastic. If you know what Electric touch is then you won't
have any new surprises. It is stronger. Believe me. Those who say that it isn't are just not wearing
the best shoes for grounding. I loved the original and I love the Plus. I will be using this until
the next model comes out. Hopefully the third will use regular batteries but until then I'm going to
have a blast with the Plus.

The product is simply amazing! No idea how Yigal thought of that but I do not care :).
nice packaging, the DVD is high quality and the routines that Yigal teaches are great!this profuct
is not for people who just wants to shock people as a joke,this is the real thing!! if you want to
empower all the magic you already do this is the best way.

It simply didn’t work
I bought this for$ 250 plus $30 for the extra stuff you need to spend on
it once you get it and then I thought that someone messed up one part of the gadget and that’s why
it wasn’t working so I spent another$25 to by just that part (which I don’t understand why he
charges so much for that little piece of metal) so I ended up spending over $300 on this and I
followed all instructions (without giving too much detail on what the instructions are ) and it
still doesn’t work
And something you should know before buying the electric touch+ it only
works on some floors and you might have to shave your legs ( a little something they leave out on
the video ) but again don’t be thrown off because of me cuz all of the other ratings are good it
could be just my unit didn’t work so I have what to complain about
But the reason why I
gave it 2 stars instead of on is bec the video was pretty good in teaching what you could do with it
Yigal teaches it pretty well he just leaves out the 2 things i mentioned before ( that it only
works on certain floors and your probably have to shave your legs )
but other wise try it why

Initially the item didnt work, penguin replaced it on their expense.
2 nd one works fine, as
seen in demo, only minus is the batteries being depleted fast. these type of batteries costs in
Japan is 4 usd / piece. X is around 16 usd for using one evening.
